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
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.”
