Opening a post with a cliché. What is your opinion on this?

“A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words,” that is the cliché I want you to roll your eyes at.  I am sure you have heard that a thousand times-  but I do want to share my thoughts on the following: what does it take to create an image?

Ansel Adams said, “there are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.” I really hope you take this phrase literally. Without someone to look at the photo, in a sense the photo might not exist, or without someone to photograph a moment- the image would not exist.  Without these two people, the work put onto the picture may not be seen or photographed. It would be a moment in time.

I had the chance to capture a moment in time with Dominika Dabrowska Photography. I have only worked with Dominika once before when I was competing for Miss Teen Canada-World, and the results were something I would have never imagined. Thanks to Debra Kelly who introduced us, plus her unwavering ability to construct the perfect styling and makeup.  The pictures were elegant, romantic, but also could capture who I was in the moment. Every time someone sees these images, they take a moment to really look at what is in front of them.

Due to unforeseen adventures, Debra Kelly is back home down south with her family while creating ornate paper couture gowns, making brides ready to walk down the aisle, and embracing the sun 24-7. I know from first hand she is a world-class artist and I cannot wait to see what she creates next!

DOMINIKA DABROWSKA. I cannot tell you how thankful I am to have worked with you again! You understand how to make someone feel comfortable, energetic, and create a moment that everyone loves. Your adaptability to different clients I have seen first hand, you ensure that your clients are happy, and your turnover rate for these images were a miracle. We haven’t worked together in a long time, but I cannot thank you enough for your time and kindness! This time with you will be a highlight during my time as Miss Calgary World!

Like Ansel Adams said, “there are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.” If you are interested in seeing the rest of my official headshots as your Miss Calgary World 2017, please click the image above! I am curious to see which is your favourite, so please LIKE the image(s) you liked best and feel free to tell me why! I know Dominika and I would love to hear your opinions!
