The Setup

This picture was 100% a setup.


See, Arron here adores Marinna. Because of his complete and utter adoration of this wonderous woman in his life he contacted me to help him make something really special for her. And it needed to be a surprise. We spent weeks secretly talking back and forth. We looked at pictures and frames and matting. Eventually, Aaron picked what he thought would be perfect. And it was. Because Aaron is a great guy he wanted me to be able to see Marinna when she opened her gift. So, down these two lovers drove under the guise of sitting for a few minutes while I photographed them. I believe Marinna expected nothing. Then Arron presented Marinna with her gift. Her utterly unique portrait- a picture that she hadn't even seen yet. Professionally framed, expertly crafted- a memorial to the beautiful woman that she is.


And I was once again reminded of a few things- *women want to feel beautiful *women want to be able to see that beauty- they want proof

*when a woman sees a beautiful picture of herself, when she can hold it in her hand, that changes her


Guys, the woman in your life might like flowers and chocolate and gigantic stuffed teddy bears. But she WANTS to love herself more. She wants to have proven to her how beautiful she is because some days she just doesn't see it . . . but if proof of her beauty is framed and hanging on her wall she'll see it. And she will marvel at her own creation.

And she will become more of who she wants to be, who she is meant to be. And she will love you all the more for it.



If you want to plan something beautiful, something special and lasting and utterly unique I invite you to talk with me. I know women and I know what this means to them.

Love, Melinda
