I am embarking on a new genre of photography, glamour. I want to empower women through photography. Sometimes women need a little bit of encouragement to come out of their shells and shine they way they always should. And what woman does not love to be pampered for a day? With my glamour sessions, I offer a whole day of beauty, glamour, and pampering for women. It starts with getting your hair and makeup done by a professional hair and makeup artist. Then we have a fun, laugher-filled photo session in which the woman, Judy in this case, changes wardrobe several times and we bring out both her inner and outer beauty in the photo shoot.
I would like to invite you to your private photo session with me. It will change the way you see yourself. I want you to see the beauty that lies within yourself.
Visit my website at Rodney Bedsole Photography, call me, or send me an email to book your beauty session. Then plan a night out on the town, because you’re going to look and feel great about yourself.
I am close to a major milestone on Facebook. I almost have 100 “Likes”. Please help me get over the hump and go to my Rodney Bedsole Photography Facebook page, “Like” my page and help me get passed 100 “Likes”. I also have a big announcement coming up that you will not want to miss.
Christmas is such a magical time in New York City. The snow, the ice skaters in Central Park and Bryant Park, and the beautiful shop windows with their scenes of Christmas joy and fun. Christmas this year was especially joyful. That’s when Vilma and Harry decided to join their lives together (three days after Christmas). They were hoping for an intimate wedding, but things quickly got out of hand and it turned into a larger event than was initially envisioned. But it was a beautiful day.
The ceremony was at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Chelsea. The church was still decorated with all the trappings of a traditional Christmas church service. The bride and the groom had smiles on their faces the entire day. After the ceremony we went to the Highline, via limousine, to make some portraits of the bride and groom. Luck was on our side, because it was a balmy 48 degrees on Vilma and Harry’s wedding day.
We walked through the crowd along the Highline, which was much larger than I had expected, given the warmer than average temperature. Vilma and Harry were met with many smiles and shouts of congratulations as we made our way through the crowd. I think they both felt like celebrities on this day. All eyes were on them as people lifted their phone camera to snap shots of the lovely couple.
Vilma and Harry could not have been a more lovely, caring couple. When I first met them, they were obviously so much in love, head over heals for each other. Fawning over one another even. They were, and are a very special and precious couple and I wish them all the best that life has to offer.
Gratitude is a way of moving ourselves forward in life. It’s a way of being in the now, and in getting the joy out of the present moment. It also helps us to connect and to serve our fellow man, for it’s often someone that we are grateful for having in our lives. Recognizing that gratefulness helps us to reflect on how we can give back to society and how we can serve mankind.
I often like to read while en route to Manhattan on the Metro North train. On a cold day recently I boarded the train, got out my book and started to read. I was totally captivated by what I was reading and I did not glance up from my book for awhile. But when I did glance up and out the train window, the first thing I saw was a huge billboard with one simple word—”Grattitude”. I felt a rush of energy pulse through my body and I began to list all the things that I was grateful for at that moment. That was the first time I saw that billboard and I love passing that billboard now. It’s a reminder to me to stop and reflect for at least a few moments every day and to feel grateful for the things and the people in my life. The billboard was put up by New York City artist Peter Tunney and he has several positive life-affirming messages posted throughout the city. I’m grateful for Peter Tunney.
