All Photos by Natalie Schlegel
I'm sure you've noticed Natalie's name on my blog, because she is the talented photographer behind the majority (if not all) of the portraits of me that I post. Today, I'm giving her a special shout out because I'm not sure that she knows just how much I believe in her! Natalie has an insane eye for portrait photography, a natural talent and ability to capture a person's essence and beauty. You don't have to look further than the examples above to see that she has what it takes to make it big. And make it big I think she will.
I will be forever grateful that this adorable girl came into my life! She has proved to be the best kind of friend a person can have, and a constant inspiration as far as my art is concerned. We began using each other as models to work on our craft over two years ago, and even though we are now separated by 3,000 miles we continue to plan photo projects and swap ideas constantly. Every artist needs a friend like that!
Check out Natalie's Flickr stream here. And be sure to stop by her blog, Natalie Schlegel Photography. Her bubbly spirit, cuteness, and creativity shine through her upbeat posts. And if you are lucky enough to live in the San Francisco Bay area, you can contact Natalie for hire for portraits or events! I highly recommend her! We used her for our engagement shots (one example above), and they are truly gorgeous, emotional pictures.
Love you Natalie! (And you will too as soon as you check her out!)
