Pure Grace


I first came Howell Conant's gorgeous photos of Grace Kelly on over at Starbucks and Jane Austen. I couldn't get enough of them so I decided to delve in a little deeper and see some more of his work. Howell Conant was her favorite photographer and friend and you can definitely tell by the intimate nature of the photographs. He captured the real person behind the icon. Love how girlie, playful and approachable she seems in all of these.

I have to agree that these photos are much graceful than many other shoots. Definitely because of the intimacy. I think we always have great photos on our hands but maybe they are just not "professional" enough.
