Celebrate International Women’s Day
Happy International Women’s Day, everyone! March 8th is recognized as International Women’s Day. This day serves to commemorate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. This year’s theme is #BreakTheBias.
Willow Street Pictures is proud to celebrate women all around the world. We are committed to capturing images that tell stories of empowering and inspiring women of all ages, races, and religions. Photography is a powerful medium that can change people’s perceptions and open their eyes to new cultures and worlds. We believe that images can break down barriers and create understanding between people who may have never had the opportunity to meet.
We even have a focused set of portrait options known as “Badass Women.” Our definition of this word consists of women who are “courageous, brave, gorgeous, unapologetic, and fun.”
Our portraits are not just about looking good but also feeling powerful and confident. We want our clients to feel like they can conquer the world after having their portraits taken by us.
One of the most important things we can do to empower women is to celebrate them. Photography is a powerful tool for celebrating the beauty and strength of women around the world. Willow Street Pictures is committed to telling stories of badass women and helping them to feel confident and empowered. We believe that images can break down barriers and create understanding between people who may have never had the opportunity to meet.
Celebration of Famous Female Photographers
We are proud to celebrate the modern-day woman, but on this day of celebration, we would like to take the space to honor some historically famous female photographers. This industry is empowered by strong female photographers. Their work is
- Margaret Bourke-White
Recently honored in a piece by The Atlantic, her work was displayed and described as being that of a true trailblazer. Bourke-White was born in New York City, and she maintained her dedication to city life in her work. She was well-known for her photos of the city sites of skyscrapers and factories. Also working for both Life and Fortune, she covered the scenes of World War II in the most treacherous of areas.
- Dorothean Lange
Lange is most notably known for her piece, “Migrant Mother.” The Depression-era piece illustrates a few important characters of Lange’s fame. Her work is largely based on a documentary-style focus that includes images of farmworkers and the poor. The characters of her work were often very overworked and weary individuals, yet she was known for consistently making these subjects appear attractive. NPR’s celebration of Lange, “Dorothean Lange: Drawing Beauty Out of Desolation” details her life and pursuit of capturing authentic images of people regardless of their circumstances.
