I have been really lucky to shoot some inspirational women lately and I want to bring their stories to you.
Everyone has a story whether they believe it or not.
I really believe in recording these stories for future generations.
The photoshoot was focused around some of the items where Shelagh had put her own tips into practice.
This pink coat was something that Shelagh would not normally wear. Since she bought it, she consistently gets comments about how amazing it looks on her.
I really loved the story about how Shelagh was singing in a choir and then decided to join a rock band.
How she had to really step outside of her comfort zone in order to approach the band members to ask to join.
And then to learn how to really let go of her inhibitions to belt out the songs on stage.
The coral prom dress which was so much fun to shoot. We actually added an extra crinoline skirt underneath the existing one, and ended up with a HUGE puffy dress.
I also took the opportunity to film Shelagh and ask her about Gumption – check out the video below where she talks about her inspiration for Gumption and how women in particular can use Gumption in their everyday lives to conquer their own challenges.
