A huge smile spread across her face and she let out an audible gasp: “Oh my god! Is that me? Do I look like that in real life?”
I love this genuine reaction from Amrita when she saw her images for the first time. At the start of our photoshoot, Amrita claimed she has never loved her photos or being in front of the camera. She confessed this is a very new experience – to get professional photos done – and she’ll need time to warm up. Little does Amrita know, I’ve heard this narrative before. It’s a common one. I promised her it won’t be awkward and not only will she look beautiful in the photos, she’ll feel beautiful. I think I did win her over during our hour together. 🙂
And when she saw her photos?
She couldn’t believe she looks so beautiful. ❤️
Amrita, I hope you know that you are a beautiful, intelligent, and cultured lady. 🙂 You have had so many unique experiences, including studying abroad in Singapore, that shape who you are becoming. I hope you see yourself as the wonderful person that I see in you. 🙂
