Hair Raising Photo Shoot - Part One

I don’t usually like getting my photo taken; although, if you’ve seen my profile pics, you’d think otherwise. I took a lot of selfies last year only because friends here asked for them. I usually end up crossing my eyes and being goofy when I have to pose for other people’s photos.

So when my friend Gilf suggested we participate in a local photography studio’s project, I balked at the idea. Not only is it designed as a photo shoot to us the photos; she’s planning to have it as a gallery showing and wants to print our “stories” in a self-published magazine. Not a bad marketing ploy, I gotta say.

“Do it for yourself. Puhleeze!”, Gilf said. “We all have this image of ourselves in our head; it would be good to see yourself as others see you! It would be so good for your self-confidence!” I have already gained some confidence just by being on this site, actually. [Thank you very much for all the kind words and comments here, by the way. ]

“Ummm…I am not so sure I want to tell ‘my story””, I said.

“Tell as much or as as you ! The focus is on being true to yourself. How you’ve been overcoming shit in your life.”

I agreed to fill out the form and sent it in. I heard back from the photographer almost immediately. Made the appointment to meet her.

Her studio is huge, at least to me it is. She has several backdrops and vignettes around it, a rack of clothing, a makeup chair and a huge monitor to view film. We sat at her conference table and she asked me what I thought I would to portray in the shoot.

“Umm, no clue, actually. I know Gilf has some preset ideas.” She sees herself as “breaking out” and finding herself again after her marriage and wanted to reflect that in her pics.

If I saw myself as anything, I saw myself as a "rule breaker". I told the photographer that, but in much tamer examples than you would thin

Like my hair for instance. Usually women of a certain age do not have their white hair down to their waists. It’s just “not done”. I have a friend, a former hair stylist who would tell me when he thought I really needed to get my hair cut. It is “out of proportion”, he’d say. I’d smile sweetly and simply say, “Fuck off!”.

My hair never grew this long when I . My sister’s did. She like a curvy, busty version of Cher when we were teenagers. She worked as a lifeguard in the summers, so with her tan, her big brown eyes and that hair, she stunning. So stunning, in fact, that my driver’s education teacher would make me drive to the pool she worked at. He would lean over and honk the horn trying to get her attention. [Imagine a faculty member trying to do that nowadays!!]

Creepy, I know.

I always so jealous of her straight thick dark hair. To make matters worse, she had the bright idea of cutting my wavy shoulder length hair into a perky pixie. The stylist went nuts with the idea, and before I knew it, I ended up with hair so short, I couldn’t even part it. I cried for weeks. This the 70s folks, when Farrah Fawcett hairstyles ran rampant in my high school.

So, when I started to leave my hair alone: putting it in a bun after shampooing, letting it dry naturally, it became softer and silkier. So what if I in my late 50s? I went with it!

The photographer gained my trust and totally excited to photograph my hair. We met in July, scheduling the photo shoot for September. She wanted me to send her inspiration photos – things I might want to see happen in the shoot; how I wanted my makeup; wardrobe ideas.

I nervous now. All this for a photo shoot? What had I gotten myself into??

lol, the hair thing. Although my stylist is the one that encouraged me to grow it out, long before silver or white hair was the "thing" . My mother believed that keeping hair short when you were young encouraged thickness. So my hair was always short as a child. She also believed that women of a certain age should never have long hair, I quit coloring mine and let it grow out starting at 50. So there!.....hahaha

Well, it sounds like a lotta fun.
Now, if you'd been asked to pose nude in front of an art class, there's where you'd ask — 'What have I gotten myself into?'😶
Although, perhaps you have — posed, that is; have you?

Ya look concerned in that pic. You'll be fine! 👍 😊 ❗❗

This will be an interesting project. I'd go in with a few ideas - happy, brooding, stern, sultry, sad, goofy, etc - so there'll be a wide selection.
Hope it all works well and you'll post he results.

Funny you should say that, as she would ask me to give her different emotions, but with the emotions, I would always drop my chin and lose the shot!

It sounds like a really neat idea. I hope we get to see the shots here.

I briefly dated a lady that specialized in BBW boudoir photography. If she got the right vibe during the session she'd tell the client the session (and prints) could be free if they'd allow her to post them on her BBW-admirers paid site. Quite a few agreed.

And YES, you made the right choice with your hair. Yet another of your many attractions!

Oh Lusty, so glad you commented! We should get together for a Hair Photo Shoot, you and I. I'm sure Cleave would love to photograph us!! I always had short hair as a kid because I was on a swim team for a few years. I got soooo tired of coloring my hair. I was always a brunette [except when it was purple] and the maintenance on that was just annoying! So I went blond for a lot of years and finally said, "screw it", White, it is!

Haha! those art students wouldn't have enough graphite in their pencils to draw me! [pun intended!!] I did go to one of those drawing classes. My renderings were absolutely hideous...elephantitis in the legs. I was amazed at how comfortable the model was in posing, however.

Thanks Spunky! She did call out some poses, or looks. She told me about one lady that only had two looks, smiling and angry. She said I had a lot of different looks, but I don't think I saw that in the final pics.

Had no idea your hair was so long which for some strange reason I find surprising. That said good for you, after all it is your flowing locks so do as you like. I've known quite a few women of a certain age that still have theirs long so I don't see why that should be seen as something unusual.

Should be very interesting to see the photos and read whatever the story you want to tell. You have already said a lot here. Thanks for keeping the long hair and I'm surprised at the length

OMG, I'd soooo adore shooting you two - The Silver Foxes. And then we could set the camera aside, and...(well it's up to you two ladies. )
