NAME + BUSINESS:

My name is Charlotte Boyer, and my photography business’ name is Charlotte B. Photography

SOMETHING SHORT + SWEET ABOUT YOU:I am a Christian and extroverted optimist, with a passion for life, color, story-telling, and creating. I am a do-er; the little engine that could, chugging up my hill of life while anticipating the fun ride back down. I believe in creating beauty in every aspect of my life and sharing that beauty with others.DID THIS SESSION CHALLENGE YOU?

Just a little, every photographer is always striving to get the perfect angle for each shot. :) Playing with sun-flares and making sure that they don’t overpower the subject was a bit of a challenge, but one that I always look forward to taking on and eventually mastering.

WHAT GEAR DID YOU USE?

Canon 6D with a 50mm 1.8/f lens.

WHY PHOTOGRAPHY?

I believe in stories, and I believe that life is one big story told by the Creator of the Universe. I believe in capturing bits and pieces of that story through photographs; grasping those memorable phases, those unique, candid moments that make life worth living. I don’t photograph for the sake of photographs. I photograph for the sake of remembrance, for capturing small bits of history in a colorful, vivid, and tangible way.

HOW DOES YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS AFFECT YOUR WORK?

My relationship with Jesus impacts my work in that it is through Him and because of Him that I live, move, and have my being. I am nothing without my Lord, and He is the one who has given me the eye to see the photographs that I capture. My very being is defined by my Lord and Savior: He is the ultimate story-teller, creator, gift-giver, and loving Father in Heaven.

WHAT'S THE STORY BEHIND THIS SESSION?

The story behind the session is quite ordinary and a bit impromptu, actually. My sister and I had scheduled an outfit shoot for our blog, boyersisters.com (besides being a professional photographer of my own right, I am the photographer as well as contributor to that site). Seeing how beautiful the lighting was that evening, and having an absolutely gorgeous model on hand, it was the perfect opportunity to add some new images to my portfolio as well! We usually have a “set” group of poses that we do for our outfit shoots, but the “impulsive photographer bug” had bitten me hard that evening, and I just kept coming up with amazing frame after amazing frame, totally going outside of the box of what we would have usually done. The golden hour was absolutely ideal in every way, with the sun’s perfectly golden light filtering through tree branches and soaking open fields. Jessica was a very willing model, and we had a blast creating these images together!

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE IMAGE, AND WHY? (HOW DID IT COME ABOUT?)

I really love the black and white shot of Jessica with the sunlight coming in between her arm and face. The joy and carefree spirit that the image exudes is an emotion that I strive to capture candidly in my photographs. The image came about when I asked Jessica to start playing with her hair. She was having so much fun with it, and you’d better believe that I was all around her in search of the perfect angle to fully capture the happiness and fun. I was really excited when I got this photograph because it had the perfect amount of intimacy and detail to really portray the emotion of the model.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful heart and work with us, Charlotte!
