I want every woman I meet to spend a few hours in front of my camera, not just because I love what I do but because I love giving them something they don't get enough of. Time for themselves. A day to feel pampered. A day to forget about the outside world and focus on themselves. A few short hours to find that beautiful woman that lives inside her. The one who gives so much she rarely has anything left to give to herself. The one who takes on the weight of the world so her family doesn't have to. The one who sacrifices what she wants to do so her children can do more of what they want to do. We all do it and there is nothing wrong with that but we need a mental health day sometimes to just do something for ourselves.
I said this multiple times that night and it is so true, "She comes in thinking she is getting a gift for her man but she leaves with a gift to herself". I would say 95% of the women who book a session come in thinking they are going to give their sweetie a great gift for their birthday, anniversary or Valentine's but when it is all said and done they realize it was them who got the gift. A few hours of pampering. A few hours of dressing up in something silky and sexy. A few hours out of the house. An afternoon of seeing their true beauty reflected back to them in images that don't lie. A boost in their self-esteem and confidence.
That right there is why I love my job so much! That is why I get so emotional when I talk about it. Her reaction to her beauty that shines out, her realization that she is still that beautiful woman she thought she lost when she became a business woman or mother or wife, her confidence in who she is now. She is me, she is you, she is every woman I meet on a daily basis. We all have something that we carry around with us that has made us forget that we are still important and beautiful and deserving. So tell yourself that you are doing this as a gift for him but leave knowing it was all for you.
I hope you decide to do something special for yourself. Even if you decide a photo shoot isn't it, I hope you take a day to do something special for you. The bonus of doing a photo shoot; you now have a gift for that special someone too! Another bonus? Crossing a boudoir session off your bucket list ;) Shoot me an email via the contact page or give me a ring (336.309.3506) and I would be more than happy to talk about a session or even more about what I do and why.
