Can you believe this gorgeous woman just turned 40? Me neither!
The beautiful woman I'm talking about is the lovely Lancette. Lancette is a busy professional and has two adorable young children. Aside from working full time, she is also a successful Calgary artist and photographer! Her paintings are absolutely stunning. You can see them here - she is a true talent! Despite all of the positives in her life, Lancette shared something really personal with me on her application to participate in 30 Days of Gorgeous:
"I have struggled with my self esteem since I was a 7 year over weight child who was bullied. And I still have feelings of insecurities about my body... I seem to care less and less as I get older but being insecure is still there."
After her session, Lancette was glowing.
"I had a wonderful experience getting the model treatment. My hair and makeup was beautiful, the experience was fun and professional and the photos [were] absolutely beautiful. Laurie created a comfortable and safe space to be beautiful..."
I hope that finally Lancette can shed those insecurities that have followed her for most of her life. She is absolutely stunning, and has the images to prove it! This week, I am sharing her experience and images in a short video. Enjoy!
Lancette - 30 Days of Gorgeous
Lancette is one of 30 women featured in Laurie MacBrown Photography's 30 Days of Gorgeous blog series.
"Because I am always the photographer in my family and rarely get to be captured being me or looking beautiful. I think it is important for your children to see their mom in a beautiful light and to have photos to immortalize my turning 40 this year."
And, what is stopping YOU?
''It was a positive experience''
Lancette loved being a diva, getting pampered and dressing up! She is a photographer herself, so it was nice to be in front of the camera for once.
