One of the occupational hazards of being a Beauty Portrait photographer is that I’m constantly fixated on eyes and expressions. So intrigued am I by people’s eyes (women especially), that when talking to someone I’ll find I can’t stop myself from getting sucked right in. I’ll daydream about how a woman would look with a certain lighting pattern, or color palette, or an extra flick of mascara. I’ll wonder what she would look like with her chin forward and down accentuating her big, bexautiful eyes or how she would photograph with a “smize.” Before you know it, the conversation train has left the building and I’m left lost in her eyes.
If you ask me, I’d say a woman’s eyes are her very BEST feature! And I just ADORE how Beauty portraits put the focus front and center on her gaze.
I’m fortunate to have photographed so many beautiful women with SUCH gorgeous eyes! Because I just can’t get enough, I decided to launch a contest to find all the blue, green, and brown-eyed beauties in Southwest Florida.
We asked our Facebook fans: Has anyone ever told you ‘You have beautiful eyes’?
Moms, sisters, friends, and spouses posted their selfies and snapshots to show off some of the most beautiful eyes we’ve ever seen!
I loved hearing moms coo over the beauty of their adorable baby’s eyes. I loved seeing sisters compliment each other and talk about how they got their beauty from mom. I loved hearing about the girl who got voted Best Eyes in High School.
Wanna see those beauties? Here you go!
Over 100 people entered for the chance to win a complimentary Beauty portrait session. In the end, we just couldn’t bear to only select ONE winner so we opted to create THREE winning sessions PLUS a special thank-you gift to ALL our contest participants.
Thanks so much for sharing your pictures and comments!
Winner #1) Michaela. I always wanted to photograph someone who looks like Snow White. Michaela’s dark hair, light eyes and beautiful complexion really drew me in. I love how she took this shot with a fabulous blue top that highlighted her gorgeous eye color. Can’t wait to create a beautiful session with you, Michaela!
Winner #2) Liset. I kinda freak when it comes to insects so at first when I saw Liset’s picture I backed away from my screen in horror and then I laughed. I had to know more. Liset told me “my amazing boyfriend was playing a funny joke on me and placed this yucky roach in my purse just to scare me. So I took a selfie with my new plastic friend.” How can I resist someone with eyes this beautiful AND an awesome personality to match! Good times ahead, Liset! Leave your roach at home! LOL
Winners #3-4) TIE! Christin and Erin. How are two friends both blessed with incredible ocean blue eyes? Christin was one of the first to enter the contest and then she nominated her friend Erin. I just loved seeing people share the love during this contest by tagging friends. You two girls are in for a fun day here at the studio with your shared session. Hope to bring out your inner super models with hair and makeup artistry and a glamour session for two!
WINNERS #5-110—ALL OF YOU!
If I could photograph every woman in Fort Myers, Naples, (and every city in between), I would be one very happy photographer! And if I could photograph clients with eyes as gorgeous as all of you who entered this contest, I’d be in absolute heaven!
Moms, sisters, friends, couples, babies… you’re all welcome
Just give me a call THIS WEEK and we’ll book you a session in January or February. 239-898-4112. Thanks for making this such a tough contest to judge, guys! I had a lot of fun!
I hope you’ll continue to get tons and tons of compliments on your incredible eyes! And I hope you’ll always look and feel as beautiful as you are!
Thanks for playing!
