I found a new model.

It is my 75 year old mother.
Never thought of this development, but I took some photos of here and saw her face likes the camera.

So we done a photo session together and I am proud and happy
that I got my first "editors choice " for a photo with my mom in front.

I think she is really a sweet senior santa woman.

We will go on with photo sessions and one time she never will say: "My dear, tell me who wants to buy a photo of my face ,can´t be."
My mom is more a shy person but the camera sees her with other eyes. It was a surprise for me when I looked at the photos, but this is this what is the fascination for me by photography.
Thanks, Tina

Wow, your mother should have been a model all along. She is a very beautiful woman. Good luck with taking more beautiful pictures of her!

Hi Joy, thanks very much for your message and your compliments. It´s a great pleasure for me to hear that the portraits of my mother suit your taste.
My mother is now in the age of 81 and we are going on making photos of her face. During the years she enjoys to see her face sometimes in a magazine.
Thanks a lot

I own a senior companion home business. We provide assisted living in an actual house with a live in caregiver and shift cnas. I was searching for stock photos of senior women to use in my marketing. I must say, your mother is literally the most attractive grandmother that I have ever seen. I kept going back to her. Unfortunately, perfection is what most people look for in advertising. Even assisted living. If you portray the beautiful ideal, it is appealing to the consumer. Your photos are very professional. Thank you.

Hi Karen, thanks for your message what you want to do with my image "First buds". It makes me happy because its very rare to get to know what happens after selling with the images.
My english is not so well ( I am from Germany), please can you explain what you mean with your question about " you are ©Tbel ?", thanks.
I just read of Rufus, I think it must be painful to give him away.
I have a cat in the same age and love him very much.
Warm regards Tina

Ah, my favourite christmas tree creator !! Hi Connie, thanks for your reply.
I like the generations photo too. It is the right time for it, because there are exactly 25 years between each generation. But I think my daughter hasn`t cought the right time to go on with this "tradition". There is no grandchild in sight for me.
Warm regards, Tina

Thanks Carolyn for your answer. I think the same of her eyes.
Good luck for your shooting with your mother.
And now you can tell her what she has to wear, it was funny to do that for our session, a new situation.
Regards Tina

Thanks David, for your compliments.
My mothers secret for good looking is working in the great garden everyday. But she does a little bit more, her heart goes with all the little new born birds there, watching their growing up.
An open heart for the small things in the world, may be thats the source.
Regards Tina
