I absolutely loved getting to work with this woman. The session itself was an absolute blast... we had so many laughs and had such a great time in the studio. Miss N came to me when I ran my very first model call - the model call gave her that window to take the leap and get in touch with her sassy-side in front of my lens. She is such a strong, hilarious, smart, and gorgeous woman - I am so happy we got to meet and work together. She had heard about me through friends who had also done shoots with me, and wanted to try it for herself. Boudoir can be an incredibly intimidating thing - so it's not uncommon for me to find my clients after I work with a friend of theirs. I love this for many reasons. The first is that I get to meet amazing people, and then I get to rave about how awesome they are when their friends come in to work with me. It also means that I get to totally transform them and show them that boudoir isn't terrifying - and then I get to take their nerves and turn it into absolute excitement and empowerment! It's wonderful!
Fear is a fickle thing. It holds us back from doing those things that we really crave doing. Maybe it's asking for a promotion nor raise (read: standing up for what you believe you're worth). Maybe it's finally taking the plunge and going bungee-jumping (read: embracing your wild side). Or maybe your fear is holding you back from loving yourself and celebrating yourself (read: not being ashamed to admire how amazing you are).
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?'
