Remember…

Hey people!!! I hope you are all staying mentally and physically healthy during this time of uncertainty.  It truly is frustrating for everyone and pretty confusing. Anyway, this too shall pass and I am planning for the future.

Remember, you are not alone in this chaos, you will get to go on with your life and make it even more lively than before, you will get to hug people again, and go visit with friends and family…There are so many things that I cannot WAIT to do again…live music, hanging out on Market Street, travel, and of course GET BEHIND MY CAMERA!!!

So…with that being said….

We had a little fun last month when we did our quarantine shoot to announce that we were closing the studio for the month of April, you can find it here, if you didn’t see it, we had a great time shooting that day!!

So, to announce commencement of our services, we are offering a special deal!  We truly want every woman to experience the power of having a boudoir session, about 4-5 hours of pampering and it being all about her, and confidence that cannot be measured!!  For a $100 deposit, that will be given back to you on the day of your reveal (usually about two weeks after the shoot).  There is no obligation to purchase any photos or products on that day either!  You have up to a year to book your session and we are here for you every step of the way!!  Go to our website to connect with us today, we can’t wait to show you how beautiful you are!!

How about a little black and white love today….give us some feedback!!

Good googlie goo y’all!!!

Man this girl right here slayed the you-know-what outta her sesh!!

She didn’t know she was so dang gorgeous, but you can bet she does now!  She was speechless when she first saw these stunning photographs of herself.  We just have all the feels for them and for her, she sweet as pie!!  We hope to get her back in here soon because she is a rock star!

We would also like to give some love out to one of our awesome team members who slay hair and make up and also is just as passionate about making women feel amazing, Contessa Collins located in Elkin, NC…tell her we sent you for all of your hair needs!!

Now, the important question here is when are you going to do yours?? Be brave, know that you deserve to feel as beautiful as the people who love you see you as, and click here to get started!!!

New decade, let’s do this!!!

Hello beautiful people!

Let’s be real for a minute…many of us always have some goals for the new year and things we want to change in our life for the better, but, most people don’t stick to it, that is why they make the same ones every year lol!!  I am choosing to not set “resolutions” for the year, but I do have some things I will improve on.

I believe it starts with habits…we need new habits that help us get to the ultimate goal.  Say for instance, you want to lose weight, you should get in the habit of planning what you will eat everyday.  The next component is discipline…make yourself stick to what you want (this is where I drive the struggle bus hard!!!) I think the third thing to help, is accountability, find a buddy that will make it into a friendly competition that will benefit both of you.  I am mainly writing this to myself today!!  I have some major goals I want to see come to fruition this year, and I know what I need to do.  I am going to start by putting these three words on sticky notes around my house, studio, and in my car…habits, discipline, and accountability and take them seriously.

What are some goals that you will reach this year?  What will be your reward to yourself when you reach them?  I feel that is important as well and I have several different things that I am going to give myself for different milestones I reach…they include a boudoir shoot with one of my favorite photographers (you didn’t think I was going to write and NOT throw something about boudoir in here did you, haha), another tattoo (sorry, not sorry hubby), a me day that includes a massage and mani/pedi, and a day trip to somewhere new.  I am the kind of person I have to have something to look forward to, these rewards are also going to be placed in conspicuous places for me too!

What ideas do you have to help you stay on track for becoming a better YOU?  I would love all the support and help you can give!!!

Happy New Year to you all and I can’t wait to see you succeed!!!

2020

Kicking out cobwebs as I got back to my blog, it has been quite a while.  I didn’t think my computer was going to remember the way, but it did, and here we are…

This year has truly been very life changing, fast, quick and in a hurry.  I have become more of a private person so it’s kind of hard for me to come here and just write about my life like I used to, my circle is very small and I am fine with that.  My clients do become like family and friends, but I sink into my small comfy world as often as I can.

On the lighter side, there are some HUGE plans in 2020 for this amazing, blessed, awesome “job” that I get to do. This is going to be the best year ever for me and my circle, AND my clients!!  There are some processes we are implementing to be able to help everyone get everything they want and to do it with an amazing discount program!!  We truly do work hard to get people to be able to get the products that they love and work with their budget.

Other changes are in the works and my newly hired assistant Ali and I are working hard to streamline everything to make it easier to book and to have all of the information at your fingertips!!

Even though we aren’t done with 2019 yet, I know how time flies so I thought while I had a few minutes I’d update a little bit.

In case I don’t find my way back to here before, I wish everyone happy holidays with people that are important, good mental health, a peaceful home, and a life that is lived and not just survived!!

 

Hugs,

Christie

Hello stranger…

I am so neglectful of this poor blog lately… My life has been a roller coaster for the past several months and lots of changes have and are taking place.  Have you ever wondered why it has to be so complicated and confusing?  I do it daily, but I have learned a whole lot of life lessons lately, so I guess that is a positive out of all the mess…

Anyway, I am still here taking some amazing women’s photos and helping them to see themselves in a new positive way, and in the process of that, continuing to heal me.

We have a lot of questions about how this experience works, so I thought I would give a little insight into how this process works…

No photos are shared unless you sign a model release, there is a clause in the contract when you book, that if there is an anonymous image, we have permission to use that, but even if you don’t won’t that, we won’t do it.

We have laundered wardrobe options available at the studio for people to borrow, bring a pair of nude or black thongs to wear under anything you use of ours.

Pricing- the normal price for a complete shoot is only $200 and that gets my amazing team primping you up as well!  Prints and products are sold separately and that ranges from $250-$3000, we literally  have something for every budget and we also offer financing!

I have had people ask if we still shoot couples, yessss!!  We love to capture that connection between you and your lover, but still keeping it tasteful!! We will also shoot nudes, but again, tastefully done!  This is art, not dirty stuff!!

Having a boudoir shoot is such an empowering experience and now I can say that from experience!  A while back I had my amazing friend Shelli from Blue Velvet Boudoir take mine in my old studio that I had for three years…there were so many memories in that place that we let go last month, it was a very emotional thing for me and so I am glad I got to have my photos taken there.  Here is a link to them and the password is confidencerocks…

I can now say with conviction (even though I did that before, I am extra convinced now lol) EVERY WOMEN NEEDS TO DO THIS FOR THEMSELVES!!!!  Give us a holler today to book yours!!!

Hellllllooooo!!

Hi people, I am still here, it has been crazy and busy, and crazy busy!!

Since I have last written, I have turned a year older (yay.  thick sarcasm) and got some new ink lol.  I have stepped away from nursing to do my passion, and it was scary, but so fulfilling to be doing my own thing now!! I am loving it!!

We now have a sign for the lingerie shop outside our studio in downtown Mount Airy, NC.  I have my first birth photography shoot lined up later this month and I am so so so excited to be doing that.  I was a postpartum nurse for six and a half years, so this will be getting back to my love of babies and their families.

We have shot lots of women this year for boudoir, give me a call and let me show you some of my most recent work in person and quell all of your fears and insecurities as to why this type of photography IS for you too!! This is such a fun way to bring out some confidence and see yourself in a new, positive way!!

Let’s also take a little walk down memory lane with one of my favorite shoots!!  I just love confident women and this one rocked it!!!  Thanks again S, we need to get you in here again soon!!

We are also booking more weddings this year in NC and beyond, we are also on The Knot!  We are full service and will not leave your images stuck on a disk or USB (which will be obsolete in a few years, photographs don’t do that…) and help you design wall art and albums to last for decades!!

Reach out to us to let us help you with all of your photography needs (except the kiddos lol)…taking appointments for seniors, family, wedding, boudoir, bridals, engagement, divorce, and birth!  Contact us at 336-648-8480 to chat about how we can help you!

 

 

Lady A…

I know I say this a lot, but WOW!!  This lady just slayed this shoot!

We want this experience to be about you and your significant other (if you have one, but it’s DEFINITELY not required!!) so we encourage personal props…this was a first, and I hope not the last, to have a full set of drums in our studio!

Thank you A for sharing this with us, you are truly beautiful inside and out!!!

Ready for the wrap…

Where in the heck has this year gone to?  I swear it just seems like yesterday I was gearing up for 2017 and here we are sliding into 2018 already!

This year…wow, I never dreamed up the things that would have occurred in my life.  Lots and lots of personal growth, which is sometimes painful, but oh so rewarding too…I started up the year as a hospice nurse and it was where I needed to be for the time, but ending up the year saying goodbye to hospice and into critical care in a hospital and thinking about travel nursing in the future.

I have learned I do not need to be around negative people who always have something bad to say about others, and have found the coolest circle of people that are amazing and love me and I feel don’t talk about me when I leave their presence.  Which, not that I care if anyone talks about me or not, just don’t need that in my circle lol.

There have been so many changes in this last part of 2017…a new studio, a new lingerie shop, a new job, some new friends, a new view on where my life is going, a new dog (my son’s, but you all know how that ends up, she is mine now lol) and also some big changes coming in 2018 that will be a transition as well…everything I do is a work in progress and if I wasn’t busy all the time, I wouldn’t know how to act lol.

I am so very thankful to all of my clients that I have had the immense pleasure of working with this year, I hope they carry some new confidence with them due, in part, to what we do, but mainly because they have found that inner umph to be what they want to be!!

Here are a few highlights of the past 365 days…I am excited to meet the people that will make up my 2018 and be a highlight of my year in the next 365!!!

hotttttttttnesssss!!!!

This girl right here is one of my most favorite people on this planet….She came to work with me back in October and has become invaluable to me.  She helps me with everything from cleaning to helping me keep my sanity (that’s a huge job in itself!!!!!).

She said before this shoot that she just doesn’t see herself as sexy…I think this may have helped her to see that maybe just as much as her sweet hubby does, which I doubt because he is wild about her (with good reason, right??)!!!

Thank you Allison for all you are to me, I love you and your face lol!!!

Let us remind you that you are beautiful too!!!! Booking for next year going on right now!  Also, we have a buy one, get one special…two shoots for the price of one!!  Call for details 336-648-8480 or email us at createdwonderfullyphotography@yahoo.com

Enjoy!!
