Shelagh – showing her gumption
showing her gumption
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.
This session was with Shelagh who has recently authored a book called Gumption: The Practical Womans Guide to Living an Adventuresome Life.

Actions, not just words
The photoshoot was focused around some of the items where Shelagh had put her own tips into practice. Shelagh mentioned that this pink coat was not normally something she would wear. But since she found it at a thrift shop and bought it, she consistently gets comments about how amazing it looks on her.
Outside her comfort zone
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.
Breaking out and having fun
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.
