This year I’m focusing a lot more on my clients. Why you are doing the shoot? Your nerves and reservations before the shoot. How you felt during the shoot, and how you felt after you saw the photos of yourself. My goal has always been to help women see themselves the way the rest of the world, the way their loved ones see them. As beautiful, strong, incredible people. As much as I know and understand women being critical of ourselves and self conscious of this or that flaw – I’m still astounded by seeing this play out. All women, no matter their size or age, or what they’ve been through in their life struggle with a little bit of these issues and I love that my job is something that gives them a chance to see themselves through a more clear lens than the distorted view we have through our own mirror.
This recent testimonial blew me away! And I wanted to share!
“The (kinda sappy) truth is that your images provoke a confidence within me and make me feel proud of myself, and I kinda just want to hang onto them for myself! We are trying for a family and (hopefully) someday when I’m covered in spit-up, I’ll have these beautiful images to reflect back on…You’ve really got a unique gift to capture beauty and primal desire that provokes a confidence within, what society might call, “everyday” women. Thank you for taking time with me.“
