Angela – Glamorous Portraits in Milwaukee

Angela came into my studio having accomplished an extraordinary achievement of losing over 100 pounds. She was really looking for a way to celebrate herself after achieving such a big goal, and portraits were the perfect avenue for that celebration. I was so moved to see her emotion at the reveal. And now I’m thrilled to share Angela’s experience in her own words:

“After finding out about the 2018 Model Call, I knew I had to apply. Over the last year and a half I have lost just a little over 110 pounds through lifestyle changes, and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to commemorate my success. I have always been a huge fan of Jennifer’s work and was SO excited to have the opportunity to have her photograph me.
From the minute I met Jennifer in person, I was completely at ease. In the initial consultation we discussed the vision for my shoot and how we were going to execute it. She helped me choose a mix of my own outfits as well as a few outfits that she had in studio. The day of the shoot I had an amazing experience of working with Theresa. She definitely did a wonderful job on my hair and makeup. I really enjoyed talking to both her and Jennifer as I was getting my hair and makeup done. That helped calm the few anticipatory nerves that I had.
When it came time to actually get in front of the camera, Jennifer made me feel like a superstar. She played an amazing mix of music and made the whole experience fun and positive.
When it came time to the reveal, I was completely taken back with the images I saw. I felt that seeing myself in those photos was the culmination of all the hard work I put into myself.  I was definitely overcome with emotion to say the least!  I am 100% thrilled that with the final portraits. I still just can’t believe that is ME in the photos.
There is a period of time in my life where I do not exist in photos so these images mean all the more to me. I am truly grateful to Jennifer for capturing me how I feel- which is proud, happy, and more confident than ever!
