A short and sweet blog post for you today. I always tell my clients that this experience is all about THEM. It’s about breaking down all those barriers and misconceptions that women hold onto so tightly. While society is getting better about showing people of all sizes and abilities in advertising, it still highlights the need to be “skinny” or “have perfect large perky boobs” or whatever attribute that is socially most attractive at that time in history. It makes it super hard to be confident about ourselves no matter what our body type is because we always focus on what we think that we lack.
While most of my clients still come into the studio thinking that they are giving a gift to someone else, it ALWAYS becomes a gift to themselves as well. The images might make a great gift to a significant other, but the EXPERIENCE is all about you, about making you feel smoking hot in the body that you’re in, about embracing your “flaws” and highlighting the things that make you you.
Without further ado - I give you Mary: “I thought I was doing this for my husband's big birthday that's coming up. I think it was actually more for me! I felt so beautiful and the photos turned out so amazing! I'm thrilled I decided to do this for us. It will be something I can look back on for years to come.”
