Welcome readers! Today's post is the start of a new series, Beauty Shots Spotlights from my Beauty Shots event in which I give create a social media blog post about their business or cause along with their images. One of the things I love most about my job are the stories....
Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Shalynn Flavell at a local networking event in Seattle, the brightness in her eyes and her bubbly personality left an impression on me. She stated that she is a Certified Hypnotherapist for Temple Hypnosis, after she took up my invitation to my Beauty Shots Event I sensed I had quite the interesting lady to get to know.
The excitement builds as my favorite beauty photographer Geoffrey Franz Photography sets up his equipment and I organize my station. As I prep her skin Shalynn explains to me how hypnosis can bring underlying thoughts and beliefs to surface, I ask her "What made you go into hypnosis?".
"During a personal journey with cancer and bone marrow transplantation in my early 20's, I began to work with a Hypnotherapist to help me manage the emotional strain and stress. It literally changed my perspectives on myself, illness, treatment and ultimately how to be me happily in life."
I remark how it's interesting that people who face their mortality tend to live the hardest. Shaylynn describes how she became so passionate about hypnosis...
"I began deeply learning and understanding the importance of our quiet perspectives and the stance we take towards life - this determines the difference between comfort and harmony or discomfort and dis-ease. After such an impactful life situation, I really took a look at what I wanted to do with my 2nd chance. I was fascinated with the Hypnosis and mindfulness and the enormity of possibility it holds. So I finally decided to stop being a client and become the guide!"
At this point Geoffrey and I knew we had a very special lady to shoot. I decided to let her beautiful freckles shine through with a thin wash of foundation and a pop of apricot on the lips and LimeLight Peachy blush on her cheeks for a fresh Spring inspired look to match her wardrobe. You know how there's that one person at karaoke who is so shy about singing then once the mic is in their hands they blow everyone's mind? That's exactly what Shaylynn did with this shoot. We laughed, we danced, and we cocktailed the perfect juice as Geoff captured Shalynn's essence just how she is and how her clients will feel in her care.
