They don’t see the tears, they don’t see the sweat and they definitely do not see the pain.
Why is it I am up most nights worried about a client and her relationships more than I am worried about my own? Why do I spend as much as I do on backups for my computer, or software to make sure your images are never stolen?
But I knew I could give back to people where I excelled at. That was reminding them how incredible they not only look, but the worth that belonged to only them. I knew if I could show them visually how the rest of the world really saw them, they would believe me. I knew I could do this because I truly believed it myself.
So I started photographing them. It became not only therapeutic for them but for me as well. Over time the business end came into play, and it changed everything. From hard drive failures, to learning business taxes, to hiring employees. It brought on a different ballgame to the reason I got into what I do.
So if you ever see me around town looking like a disheveled bag lady talking to herself this is why. Because the business part is not glamorous.
Heather came into the studio with her gorgeous long hair, tall and what I thought was PURE confidence. She just exuded that calm cool confident walk.
However, after reading her testimonials I learned that she was just as nervous as any other clients that has been in the studio. She wrote that she did the session because she lacked confidence in herself. She wanted “to prove to myself that I can be just as beautiful and sexy even at a bigger size”.
Ladies this is SOOOO common. We plan and plan and well, life likes to laugh at us and say “NOPE—I have other plans for you”. Rest assure that I have you covered just as I did with Heather. The studio wardrobe ranges over many sizes from petite to plus.
How did you feel during your session?I felt absolutely amazing during my session! Some of the poses made me feel a little funny at first but once I saw the pictures I understood why she did it! Jennifer made it soo extremely comfortable and relaxing. I felt at ease with her and I knew from the start I could trust her and whatever pose she asked me go into.
How did you feel after your session? Oh my goodness! I felt nervous, anxious and excited! I was so incredibly impatient waiting for my images to come back in! Not gonna lie, I would cause myself to overthink and start getting bad ideas but once I’d go back to the page and see all of the other beautiful shots, my worries would melt away.

Throughout the year I will post a link for a chance for YOU to be featured on the blog. This is a great way to hope others feel at ease about a session and see how it changed you as well.
Fallon came into the studio and had this very strong presence about her. It all made sense when I learned she was law enforcement. I find these women extremely powerful and in awe of what they do everyday to help the lives of so many they do not even know.
When I read her testimonial in her blog contact I was so moved that I made her feel so comfortable, and so at ease with her session. But I was SHOCKED to find out she had any confidence issues in her appearance. She is a gorgeous woman inside and out.
