There are so many reasons a woman should be professionally photographed, and at different stages of her life. Many women feel they need a "reason" to have photos taken of themselves. We're here to tell you that no matter what YOUR reason is, it is a valid one. We have seen first hand how empowering these photo shoots are. It is 100% OK for you to want photos of yourself looking happy and gorgeous.
Women spend so much of their time being caretakers, many times just taking a few hours for yourself can make you feel bad. If that's the case, I encourage you to stop and think about why you are drawn to the idea of being photographed. If you haven't been photographed before, think about what has stopped you in the past. These photos don't have to be for your husband, your partner or your family. It is OK to have photographs taken for YOU, to show yourself the absolute unique beauty that is YOURS. Our photo shoots allow women of any age, size or shape to take time to appreciate their journey and celebrate where they are NOW.
If you've ever wanted to be photographed, as a high school senior, a dancer, to celebrate a milestone, maternity, fashion or glamour, fine art, boudoir or even something else, I hope you will take some time to meet with me. You deserve to be SEEN. You are enough, just the way you are,
THAT is the only reason you need.
