Celebrating personal growth, transition, milestones, and self-love. Watching and listening to her as she walked towards her portraits on the reveal wall my heart raced, my eyes, teared, and I got goose bumps all at the same time. Her reaction I was not expecting. She stood back with her hands cupping her face as she squealed with excitement and scrolled through the images. In those moments I was reminded again just how important my job is. I went to sleep that night knowing I made a woman feel beautiful about herself and showed her what others see. Megan, I am so humbled an honored you shared this part of your life with me.
She took home all thirty images and I cannot wait to see how she displays them on the walls of her home.
Discover Your Own Beauty
Wherever you are in your life, whatever journey you are on or whatever your fears are you need to discover your own beauty. We all want to exist and be seen, be heard, be noticed, whether it is to strangers, family or friends. We let fear keep us from being who we are meant to be, it suffocates and keeps us from growing. Fear can drive you and set you free if you choose to let it.
What is your legacy/heirloom that you want to leave to your loved ones? Do this for the generation behind you.
Amy is a mother of two little ones and in her 30s. She asked me to photograph her as a gift to her husband and to have portraits for her children when they reach the age she is here. We worked together designing her photoshoot. She flipped the pages of Voulez Vous Boudoir’s Portrait magazine, reviewed our website and social media and we came up with a plan of action for her photoshoot designing especially for her.
The black gown she is wearing is vintage from the 1940s purchased for the studio a few years back. The images in the black hat were designed specially for her using lace and velvet hand picked by Lana Thomas. The hat we just added a fascinator to it for an added element. The flower picture is a headdress made specially for Voulez Vous Boudoir.
I look forward to designing your custom portrait experience so you can discover your own beauty.
