CONGRATULATIONS to Melissa Acevedo who just celebrated her curves!
I recently had the privilege of working with makeup artist/hair stylist, Christina Laguatan as she provided services for our client, Melissa, a wife and mother of 3. Melissa, excited to spend the day experiencing her 1st boudoir session, has a young spirit and wonderful outlook on life. Part of our conversation during hair & makeup, was the importance of having a professional capture moments for us to celebrate our very own existence. If you've never experienced a boudoir or glamour photo session, let me encourage you to be a part of something special, feeling pampered and realizing that you are truly some kind of beautiful.
Sure, anyone can hold up a cell phone camera or a point and shoot automatic camera and even a semi-pro camera to take your pictures. However, if the person capturing these moments does not understand the curves of a woman, angles, light, composition and how to accomplish expression, it is really not the same as allowing a professional to capture what you just don't see or even realize.
I get it. Some say hiring a photographer is a luxury. Sure, nobody really "needs" it, but there are those who realize the importance of it and would beg to differ because it's needing the experience of being vulnerable in front of the camera and trusting the connection you have with your own self. Women have lots of emotions. A huge part of each of us struggles to find our beauty. You can stare in the mirror for a very long time to find the essence of you, but I offer you this. Allow my team to present another side of "you" - the outer beauty that you struggle to see as you move about your day and deal with the elements of your life feeling worn out, exhausted and desiring to feel confident and gorgeous. Indulge in the glamour! If you do, I promise you, you will feel like a million bucks not only outside, but inside, and you will certainly look back many years from that moment and have a positive reminder of how beautiful you really are!
