During Magy’s consultation I could tell she was nervous but more than willing to push herself through this challenge. This was going to be a valentine’s day gift for her husband. The day of her session she was shaking with nerves and excitement. Needless to say when she walked out the door her gorgeous head was held high! She did such an amazing job during her session. Her favorite outfit by far was the pink tule skirt (available in our Sparkle Wardrobe). She wanted all of the pictures of her in that skirt!
There are some sessions that inspire us. Push us to do new things. This was definitely one of them.
Many of our clients are nervous when they first come in. Elana’s biggest concern was that she didn’t know how to pose herself. I was thankful she let me know this. I assured her that is where my experience comes in. I would be guiding her through each pose.
Elana brought with a gorgeous sequin and chiffon dress. She has yet to be able to wear this dress due to events being canceled. Let’s just say this dress speaks for itself. The added touch of a wine glass was such a gorgeous addition to these images.
Now let’s get to the one that blew my mind! I decided to get wild and use colored gels on my constant lights. I wanted to bring a fresh look I don’t see with other boudoir photographers. We have since used this set up twice. The results are wild and sexy. Let us know your thoughts on this set up.
Huge shout out to Elana for trusting us with her session! xoxo
Rachel is a previous client of ours. Her sparkling eyes and gorgeous smile were perfect for this project. I reached out to Rachel to see if she would be interested in modeling for our newest behind the scenes video. She was quick to accept the offer! Most of this session I had styled but encouraged Rachel to bring anything she wanted. In the end her leopard bodysuit was by far my favorite outfit from this session!
The gorgeous Christina booked her session with her cousin for an amazing girl’s day! Christina’s only request is that we incorporate her husband’s dress shirt and tie in her session. I think that is the part of the session she really started to shine.
After almost a year of living through a pandemic it was nice to have the opportunity to pamper one of our frontline workers! Amanda takes a lot of pride in what she has accomplished. We thank her for every patient she helps during these crazy times.
Now let’s talk a little about the session. Little did our team know that we would be photographing someone who should have been famous in the 40’s and 50’s! Amanda has the most gorgeous fair complexion that mixes perfect with Old Hollywood and red lipstick. Tell us which photo from this session was your favorite!
Amanda booked a session to celebrate her upcoming wedding. This is a great opportunity to remind yourself you are worth it and reward your special someone! When we met for her consultation Amanda wanted to include her veil in the session. Her dress and veil were being stored at her mother’s house. She decided not to try to get it as to make sure it was still a surprise. We wanted to make sure this session was perfect for Amanda. Lucky for us we were able to borrow a veil that was very similar to her’s! Are you getting married soon? Shoot us a message, let’s meet!
Recently Brooke shared these amazing words with her favorite photos from the session. With her permission I give you her heartfelt words.
“Real Talk…. Confidence and positive self esteem is something I’ve struggled with for as long as I can remember. Something I’ve managed to just deal with and tolerate all these years. Biggest issue now, I’m raising two amazing daughters who are incredible, and beautiful, and smart, and so much more. However, I can’t help but notice and fear that my poor self esteem and body shaming of myself has or will rub off on them. How can I feed them all these positive amazing words of beauty, when I then look at my own self and struggle to find any positivity or beauty in the mirror.
This post isn’t to look for compliments or any words of positivity. This post is to simply raise awareness on body positivity to all women. All shapes. All sizes. And more importantly, to stop caring and worrying what others see in you, and simply focus on finding and seeing beauty in yourself.
These past 6 months I’ve struggled yet again, with being at my heaviest and unhealthiest, and with finding myself and being okay with the woman I am and the mistakes I’ve made in life. So I changed my mind set and started doing more of what makes me happy, healthy hobbies, and surrounding myself with the right people. At 33, I’m okay with admitting that I’m still growing and still learning.
I’m still working on my positive mindset, in all aspects. But I know I’m not alone.
We need to stop comparing ourselves to others. Live in the moment. Develop Awareness. Stay connected to yourself. Stop judging yourself and others. Let go of how you think things should be. Prioritize your needs. Embrace the awkwardness. Affirm your value and challenge the negative.”
A perfect session starts with all of your favorite things. For Angela it must include the color purple, roses and tattoos. Your favorite things tell your story. The things that make you feel special, beautiful and sparkle.
Angela is a woman who always puts everyone else first. It was wonderful to see her have time to reflect on how beautiful she is. To remember that she is important too.
