....fear, madness, wild, grit, sweat, wonder, imperfection, resilience……
This is my embrace.
I’m a dog mom, small business owner, photographer, big sister; I love to workout, try new things, be active.
I love the way lifting weights makes me feel, dripping sweat, shaking, sore as hell the next day. Does that make me feel sexy? Not right away, but it feels good and makes me happy.
I will do anything to make my photography better. I will lay on the ground, climb trees, contort into weird positions to get the best angles. During the summer it means sweat marks, runny makeup, tangled hair. Does that make me feel sexy? No. But i’m passionate about my craft and I love my clients like they are family and I will do anything to get them the best image I can.
I’m a dog mom and animal lover. I foster kittens and have two dogs and two cats of my own. I clean up their vomit, pick up their poop, bathe them, give them medicine, I say up at night with them when they’re sick. I’m drooled on, peed on, I’ve caught a lick right in the mouth before, and have puppy noses shoved in weird places. Does that make me feel sexy? No. But I love it. I fear the day that I won’t have them.
I’m also a big sister. Which means I’ve been tackled, dragged through the mud, spit on, and have been given plenty of wedgies. I’ve ridden dirtbikes through the mud, dug forts in the ground, climbed trees til all my clothes had rips and stains in them. I’ve also been the shoulder to cry on, the one who has to remain strong when the rest of the family seems to be falling apart. I find ways to show strength, and make sure myself and my brother make it through whatever life throws at us. Does that make me feel sexy? No. But we stay resilient and strong for family and I wouldn’t trade them for the world.
Regardless of your pain, passions, fears, flaws, this should be your reminder that you are a force to be reckoned with. When I participated in a boudoir session for the first time and saw my photos, it was like i inhaled this air of confidence that made me feel like I no one could hold me down. I want you to have that same feeling! I want you to leave your boudoir session overflowing with so much confidence that it makes you feel like you can conquer your biggest dreams. Feeling flawless with a sense of freedom and power.
