I got an email from Adele late last year. She mentioned that she wanted to treat herself. As a mom and wife, she obviously wants photos of her loved ones too, but she was adamant that she wanted to do something for herself. To take just one morning to pamper herself and start the year of with a celebration of where she is in her life. I love that she acknowledged this to herself. I hear all too often that the mom and wife of a family is the one that holds the unit together, and if she’s not taking care of herself, she can’t take care of the rest. Kinda like the aeroplane safety instructions – “Place the mask on yourself first, THEN help others.” I reckon we, as woman should remind ourselves of this more regularly.
Anyway, back to Adele’s shoot – her beautiful nature definitely came through. She was relaxed and open to try different things. Pure bliss for a photographer. Check out her before and after picture here.
