As I entered into 2017 I knew that this would be the year of a new studio, SUV for the photo booth, and a goal of 40 weddings met. But what do you do when your dreams, that you have prayed and fasted for, don’t come true. You keep standing. The only way I made it through this year was God helping me step by step. As I reflect back on 2017, I have meet amazing people. God brought revenue in ways that I never imaged. I made amazing connections with churches. I build relationships with people in different industries. I have been blessed to capture two baby boys enter this world and capture the excitement of the families.
My pray has always been to capture moments for people that always pass by too quickly. This year, I have also had more clients pass away than ever before. Young and old. It hurts like it’s my family. When you walk into the studio you walk into love. We care about getting the photos that you have in your head along with more.
To the entrepreneur who has a dream, remember this journey isn’t easy, but it’s worth it. It’s days when you won’t make a profit, but you make someones days. To the mother struggling, keep going. Your children are watching you. To the dreamer who feels stuck, don’t give up. Keep working. To the person who feels stuck, identify where you are stuck and change one thing at a time. To the people who is searching for themselves, take your time… it won’t happen overnight, but it will happen.
Thank YOU for your support this year! You supported a dreamer this year and I can’t say thank you enough. Here’s to capturing more moments that often pass by too quickly.
This project has been on the vision board for about two years now without a name. Recently I had four boudoir sessions that walked out of the studio feeling like a new person. This made me go back to the drawing board and trying to figure out how to work it so that I could empower the women around me.
Enters The Shape of Beautiful Project. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Often I hear ladies say that they want to do a boudoir session, BUT after they lose 10 more pounds. Do it. Do it NOW. Do it for yourself.
This session triggered some emotions that I never expected. I see the imperfections, but yet I see somethings that I love about myself. I have learned to love me in this moment. It's easy to not take pictures, or take pictures from a certain angle, but this showed me some things that I want to work on and improve. I cant wait to put in the work to do another session in the future to see the difference.
When I first saw the photos, I saw every stretch mark and cottage cheese dimple in my legs. Then I saw a photo where I felt confident just the way I was. I fell in love. That is the moment that I want every woman to experience.
It can be difficult to love something that you want to see in a different light. Love your way through it.
So ladies, you don't have to do this for him, do it for yourself. I can't wait to put my favorite picture on a canvas for my bedroom. If you would like to participate in this project, pick your outfit out. Sign up under book now. $50 will get you one outfit with 10 digital. All I ask is that you release and approve one photo for this project. All other photos are for your eyes only, unless you want to share.
Don't miss out on what's going on around the studio.
TEN YEARS... Wow, I feel old. This year brought so many emotions for me. I wasn't as excited about my class reunion at first, because I wasn't at the place I thought I would have been in 10 years. If you would have asked me in high school, I expected to have my husband on my arm and possibly a child or two. After shifting my mindset, I was excited to enjoy my class. I'm not far from Blanchard, but I rarely see anyone I graduated with other than on social media. The reunion game was awesome and so many people showed up. That made my heart happy.
I'm so proud of our class. To see all of the accomplishments my classmates have made. To see their beautiful families, and to see everyone working for something in life. Class of 2007, keep going. Keep pushing. Don't stop.
After seeing so many post from older classes, I pray that our class can support each other better. I pray that we don't let political views stop us from loving each other, and that we don't let a simple post ruin friends. If y'all need me, call me!!
Grad Sessions are one of my favorite sessions to shoot and look back on years later. As I enter into my 8th year in business, I love seeing my high school graduates graduate from college or get married. I have been blessed to capture one of my very first clients special moments in life. From college graduation to engagement to wedding to boudoir to baby announcement to maternity to live birth to newborn to first birthday and second birthday. There is nothing more enjoyable than being apart of those special moments in life. I'm grateful to my sweet Countess for allowing me to be apart of all of those moments, and prayerfully more to come.
Grad Session, more specifically high school graduation sessions, allow you to capture the highlights from your high school days. Remember to bring those special items like class ring, letterman jacket, jerseys or special uniforms. After attending my 10 year high school reunion last weekend, I went back to my senior photos and realized I didn't capture any of those things in my photos. I wish I could do a redo. Make your session yours. Prepare for you session days ahead so that you won't forget anything. We have caps and gowns, if you need one. Just let us know.
As the weather changes, book your Grad Session now with the perfect weather!
