Every once and a while, I meet someone and feel an instant connection. It’s like we’ve known each other for much longer than the 5 minutes I’ve been aware of their physical presence in front of me. From the moment I got on the phone with Kaye, I could tell she was one of these people. She is one of the most kind, compassionate, wise, thoughtful, insightful, and generous women I have ever met.
I feel so blessed that our paths have crossed at what is, seemingly, the best possible time for it to have happened. Kaye loves my mission, process, and photography so much, that she has offered to be a business adviser to Dana Kae Boudoir! She is bringing so much to the team – years of experience in law and business, as well as an extreme knowledge of the English language. I am so excited to have her!
“Over my mask is your mask of me.”
What does it mean to unmask someone? What does it mean to be masked? We all walk around doing, wearing, saying, or acting a certain way – so that we are perceived as we want to be. Here’s the thing, that all goes out the window when the same people you are masking yourself for subconsciously decide what they think of you – or put their mask on you. Kaye has always been fascinated by this, so she decided to do an unmasked shot. The next two photographs have no makeup, no hair, very little retouching and a gorgeous glowing woman, just as she is – unmasked and radiant.
