Like myself and so many other women, this beauty right here called me up wanting to book a shoot because she was struggling with self-confidence.
All that we endure as women can really leave a girl feeling depleted. Most of the time, we're putting the needs of others ahead of our own and rarely taking time out all for ourselves...especially for things like feeling pretty. It may not seem like that big of a deal, but when a girl doesn’t feel beautiful, then she’s living life missing a huge source of confidence. I believe that ALL women are beautiful and carry a unique spirit that makes them special. When we’re able to realize that, and see ourselves as the beautiful badasses that we are – the world better lookout. That woman is unstoppable.
I want to be that woman. I want YOU to be that woman. I love empowering women to be the best damn version of themselves that they can be, with the power of intimate portraiture.
This session started as an anniversary gift to her husband. In the end, she gained a whole new perspective of herself.
"Viewing my photos...my heart melted. I could not believe how amazing I looked."
Was the session different from what you expected?
"Yes it was. I thought I would be a little more nervous but honestly I was so much more comfortable. I felt like I was with an old friend"
To those of you considering a shoot for yourself...
"Do it. You will feel so good about yourself through the whole process. It will show you that you are so much more than what you see yourself as."
