Getting up with the sun is something I used to relish in. When you're scared awake at the same time the sun is coming up, its less fun. It's going to be a "give me all the coffee and then let me take a nap" kind of day.
This woman was incredible. She was so confident in her body and her mind, which a pleasure to witness. She talked about how self-care is SO important, and that she truly believes that positive mental health goes hand-in-hand with how you view your own body. We completely agree, and we truly hope that we can help our clients on their own journeys of self love too 💕
This photo was taken in Heather's bedroom. We had her sit by the window & you can't see the kitties wanting attention, the purple of her bed sheets, or the walls. You DON'T have to be in a studio or special location to create killer images. We just need some great light and a willing client 🙌
Finishing up this session and allllmost ready to send out. I can't believe my last week and all the way up to next week. It's been busy. And hot. Very hot. And hot used in all its variations and definitions. By the way, i haven't forgotten about all the support from my last post. It's definitely happening, just a matter of how I translate it efficiently. I get really bad writers block from time to time, and especially during times where I'm trying to be well received. But it IS coming together. And it's crazy, scary, and exciting. Are there any really great writers who want to help me fight through the tears and be a thesaurus assistant? Haha... just kidding, but not.
We can't stress enough how gorgeous every single body type is. It doesn't matter if you're 4'7" or 6'3". It doesn't matter if you've got small boobs or giant boobs. It definitely doesn't matter what color you are, how old you are, or what size jeans you wear. You're so special and gorgeous just the way you are, and please don't feel like you have to conform to any ridiculous & unattainable beauty standard.
Ladies!! We have THREE spots left for our studio mini-sessions on August 26th. You'll receive 30 min of photography / hair & makeup / hi-res images / $215. Please DM or email us for details, as these spots will fill up quickly 🙌
Real talk. I still struggle with my own body image, and I am nowhere near where I want to be with my self esteem. Sometimes I look in the mirror and feel frustrated, or I touch the cellulite on my thighs and wish I could change it.
We cannot thank our clients enough for being brace & vulnerable in front of our lenses. You are helping to heal us as well as yourselves. Now when I look in the mirror and feel upset, I remember all of the empowered women that we've had the gift to meet. And I remember that no one has the "perfect" body, and yet they are all so perfect the way they are.
Weddings were my thing for so many years. And capturing two people adoring each other still speaks to my heart so much. But I am so so thankful for being able to work with women. To specialise in boosting confidence can be daunting at times. I would not ever go back at this point. You women are my soul fire. You women are my reason. It's a whole different kind of vulnerability and whole different type of love.
