Do you ever just feel like "This is exactly what I'm supposed to be doing!" ?? I leave each and every one of my sessions with that feeling. I'm on cloud 9 after every photo shoot ... but I'm also exhausted - mentally, emotionally, and physically. That's because I literally pour my heart and soul into each session. I know how nervous you were sending that first email. I know you had the butterflies in your tummy the days leading up to your session. I know you may have even *thought* about turning around the minute you pulled up to our parking lot. But when you come into our studio, I want you to let all those feelings go. Let me be your brain for those few hours. I want you to know that you don't have to know how to pose. I understand you are not a paid model who has been doing this since they were 15. It is my job to tell you how to pose. It is my job to show you how to pose. Yup, I actually put myself into the poses myself to show you. I also tend to exaggerate the pose so that you can laugh at me and you don't feel so silly yourself. Boudoir photography is so different than any other type of photography. It's vulnerable and stripped down - literally and figuratively. You're sharing your insecurities with someone who's only been in your life for a very short time. I understand that. I don't take it lightly that you're in a vulnerable state with me. At the end of the day, it's not just about seductive photos, it's about embracing your God given self.
I am where I am meant to be in life. I am doing exactly what I'm supposed to be doing. I love each and everyone of our clients for allowing me to get to do this and call it my JOB. Thank you!!
