Good Morning Brooke,
I can not even begin to express my feelings and emotions from seeing that image you took of Marissa and hearing that she will be on the cover of the Senior Style Guide Magazine!
I have tried to email you a few times but nothing I typed seemed to be more then just a Thank You.
So THANK YOU, Brooke, Thank you with all my heart.
I have seen a million pictures of my daughter over the years but I have never seen it captured so Elegantly. The Make up, The Hair, The Leaf Crown, The Dress, The Lights, The Car....
All of that is wonderful but it is The VISION you have prior to any of those things coming into play to make an amazing Shot come to life.
It just WOWS me how you can look at the Blank canvas of the Natural Beauty of all those Teens and describe how you see the make up, the hair, the styling and it just comes together for you so beautifully and effortless. Truly a gift!
I just want you to know it is not just your Quality of work Brooke It is just YOU, You’re such an inspiring woman, the Love you have for Photography, style, Glamor and Teaching all that you know it just Makes this Glow around you. And the love and care you have for everyone that you photograph.
When you talk about a shoot or pictures you have taken or plan to take or talk to your photographers or models THE EXCITEMENT you have and feel just pours out on to everyone and they hang on to your every word.
I just want to thank you for a Mother-Daughter get away we could have never made better on our own. The Pictures are awesome, the people and friends we have met/made are all awesome, But that moment of bonding you gave US, All I can say is WOW just WOW!!!!
If Marissa never becomes a model as she so dreams of everyday thats just fine because that week in NYC, The Magazine Cover, The Images and the time we had together will Live in Our Hearts FOREVER, Because of you and the Vision YOU had. Thank you again Brooke.
Sincerely, Shawna Clay
