Perfect is Boring

Nobody is perfect, so get over the fear of being or doing everything perfectly. Besides perfect is boring. You’re perfect with all your imperfections. So today, instead of picking yourself apart in the mirror or with your friends. Start seeing your “imperfections” as unique traits that give you character and dimension – because that’s exactly what they are. – Author Unknown

I have had the privilege to travel the states and capture beautiful portraits/headshots these last couple of  months. This quote totally sums up why I love this work. To capture each persons unique traits. Perfect is boring. You your little dimples, cracked smile, your uneven eyebrows. They are you and I want nothing but to show you. The real beautiful you.

I will be posting these sets of portraits in random order. Meet Kathleen today. I loved shooting her in beautiful 77 degree D.C. weather. The colors were just amazing and it was pretty awesome that Kathleen and her outfit practically walked out of a J. Crew magazine.  PS. Doesn’t she look like the new Duchess Kate?
