When women come back to my studio for their big Reveal and see their finished portraits for the first time, that is what they say.
All of them!
I think we all have probably had moments in our lives where we felt beautiful... until we saw the photos (lol).
Think about those nights where you got all dressed up and went out dancing with the girls. You felt so good, right? Until the next day when your best friend posts a photo on Facebook. The lighting was bad, the angle NOT flattering, and what the heck happened to the pound of makeup you put on so thoroughly?!?
It's like a rollercoaster of emotions that always finishes down.
The negative inner voice starts up again and you forget how beautiful you FELT.
A glamour session is all about the experience. It all starts with the planning stage. I send each and every client a Beauty Guide and we start planning.
We chat about what they want to wear, what to bring, important accessories (hint: undergarments are possibly more important than anything else!), from casual jeans and t-shirts to full-on gowns - if it makes you feel beautiful, then bring it!
I have some studio wardrobe pieces that can be fun to wear. Hands-down the favourite is my black tulle skirt! It fits everyone and makes each woman look and feel like a celebrity.
The day of the shoot is a highlight. You get pampered and fussed over for hours. It's impossible to leave here without feeling like the most beautiful woman in the world!
And, it doesn't end there.
I invite you back to see a selection of the best images from your session fully retouched. Only buy what you love and you can take them home with you the same day! It all starts with a slideshow.
Check out Michelle's reaction to her slideshow of images - I couldn't resist capturing it on video!
Michelle is seeing her photos for the first time...
I could not resist capturing Michelle's reaction to her slideshow. I live to make people this happy!
What I love the most about my work is the way I make people feel.
Not only do they leave their photoshoot feeling like the most beautiful person in the world, but they are REMINDED of that feeling when they see their photos.
My portraits of women are a self-affirming reminder that you ARE beautiful.
That's why I want you to put them on your wall and surround yourself with them.
You should be reminded every day that you are gorgeous.
Drown that nasty inner voice that wants to keep you down and stay gorgeous!
