"ROMANCING OLD HOLLYWOOD" -- Classic Beauty


As a child I grew up starring in wonderment at my mother's Glamorous modeling shots.  She was a Hollywood Starlet to me.  She was elegantly beautiful and classically sexy. This imagery has remained in my mind for years, and now I pay tribute to "Old Hollywood" and my mother as a photographer. Debra Snell Photography encourages women of all ages and backgrounds, that they too can step back in time, and be a Classic Hollywood Starlet, if only for one photo shoot.  With hair, makeup, music, lighting and clothing, I transform each photo shoot into a moment back in the 30's and 40's. To see their faces when I show them a shot of themselves in a way they never have imagined they could look, now that's my favorite moment of each shoot. Legendary Photographer George Hurrell is one of my idols from that era.  I hope you enjoy what I call "Romancing Old Hollywood".  None of the women here are models, just ladies who trusted me when I said "I see you as a Hollywood Starlet." After all, doesn't every woman like to be looked at as a Classic Beauty.  What about You?

I was not sure about taking these photos to begin with but I am so happy that I did them and the outcome. I was a bit nervous because I have never done a photo shoot and was not sure if I would feel comfortable. But I worked myself up for nothing, Debra made me feel lovely and as beautiful as a super model. We had talked a few things over before the shoot about my ideas and hers. Debra really did listen to what I wanted and even had a few props for a certain look. I can't wait to come up with other ideas and book another shoot.
Thank you so much. I am honored to have my picture posted. Great Job!

Thanks Jessica.You are truly a natural beauty inside and out. It didn't take much for me to see how you could become an "Old Hollywood Starlet." Thanks for trusting me. I never noticed that you were nervous. You hid it well, and rocked the shoot!

It was very exciting to have my photo taken by such an amazing artist. I felt incredibly comfortable knowing that the outcome would be nothing short of fabulous. I can't wait to look back in 20, 30, 40 years and remember how lovely I felt at that moment. It's a privelage to have my photo on this page with such beautiful women. Thanks Debra!
