Old Hollywood Glamour Portraits [Kansas City Photographer]

Business wizards say photographers should specialize to be most successful. But I love doing so many different types of portraits, I couldn't possibly turn my back on any of them! One thing I absolutely love to do is Old Hollywood Glamour portraits. When I was a girl growing up on a Kansas farm, I loved when my mom would take me and my twin sister to the local library, 20+ miles away. One of my favorite books was about Hollywood actresses in the 20s and 30s and I adored the perfect, glamorous portraits of them. A photographer named George Hurrell was a master of this type of portrait. I've recently been doing my own style of glamour portraits, inspired by the the ones in that book I loved when I was a girl.

I  photographed Jenna in this style - isn't she a beauty?
