From Jennifer Williams

Denise told me that in order to learn how to coach the right expressions, I’ll need to know what it looks like on my own face and in my body language. The Modern Love team did my hair and makeup and I got in front of the camera. I was so awkward, normally I am not uncomfortable in front of the camera but it was a big realization for me that I am very much used to being strong and I don’t reveal my own vulnerability too often.  We used a mirror so that I could see my face as well as her face emulating specific expressions while using breathing techniques and body language to complete a look.

I just told my hubby that I would’ve been 100% completely content and fulfilled if I had ONLY taken the Stripped Down workshop in Vegas.  Everything else was fluff.  Seriously.  I am looking at every image so differently now — my own and all others. I feel like there’s something missing when I don’t see any emotion or connection.

Then I realized, whoa, I've got something to set myself apart.  To bring raw emotion to a portrait rather than just another sexy photo.  With Denise's lessons running through my brain, I have no doubt I'll find success with the clients who want just what I provide.

My experience with Denise Birdsong and Stripped Down

Stripped Down taught me how to create consistent work that my clients can’t walk away from! Strong emotive images come out of each client session. With Stripped Down in my back pocket, I am able to connect with my clients; produce images that engage the viewer and provide a variety of looks. My connection with my clients has surpassed either of our expectations. I want happy clients 100% of the time and Stripped Down has been my pathway to exactly that. -Stephanie Wells GFE Studio
