Muse: a woman, or a force personified as a woman, who is the source of inspiration for a creative artist. Every creative artist needs a muse. Someone that captivates them and inspires them to create. Muses have been the fuel to artists’ engines for centuries.
If you’ve read previous posts from my blog, you’ve become acquainted with the fact I’m delving into photography. Taking classes, soaking up all the knowledge I can and practicing, practicing, practicing! I LOVE learning every piece of it.
It also tremendously helps that I have one of the most creative people on the planet on my team. My muse happens to be my BFF from the high school days, Lashon. I’ve pretty much christened her my Creative Director. 🙂
Our last portrait session was inspired by some vintage photos we’ve collected and had a bit of a darker vibe. All it took was just a spark of inspiration and we took it and ran with it. I recruited our friend, Rachel, for hair and makeup and she turned Lashon into a beautiful vamp. Rachel also assisted during the photo shoot by keeping an eagle eye out for any flaws and also keeping us in stitches from her wise cracks!
Ladies & gentlemen, I’m pleased to introduce to you the recent photo shoot with Lashon, The Gypsy.
In a quaint caravan, there’s a lady they call The Gypsy.
She can look in the future and drive away all your fears.
Everything will come right, if you only believe The Gypsy.
She could tell at a glance, that my heart was so full of tears.
She looked at my hand and told me, my lover was always true.
And yet in my heart I knew, dear, somebody else was kissing you.
But I’ll go there again, ’cause I want to believe The Gypsy.
That my lover is true and will come back to me some day.
