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!!

xoxo,

Life changing… MUST READ!!!

IMG_7274-EditThis amazing beauty is Jessi, this is what she had to say about Created Wonderfully Boudoir Photography…grab your Kleenex, we needed several when she sent this to us!!!  Thank you sweet girl!!!

How Created Wonderfully changed my life– I have struggled with anxiety, depression, and self-image issues for as long as I can remember. Being a mom of three amazing kids and working all the time makes it quite difficult to take care of myself and furthermore, to take the time to make myself feel confident. As women most of us immediately pick ourselves apart upon stepping in front of a mirror. It doesn’t matter how many times our significant other tells us we’re beautiful, we still find every dimple, crease, discoloration, and fine line; and to us it’s much worse than it actually is.

I went a couple of years ago and spoke with Christie about a photoshoot and I decided against it in the end. My self-esteem kept me from taking the plunge. So at the end of last year, with a push from my dear fiancé, I finally purchased a shoot- and let me tell you, I was nervous! I went and let my better half do a bit of shopping for me so I would have lingerie he thought I’d look good in and by the time the day came I was a ball of nerves. I walked in and Christie made me feel right at home. She brought me a hairdryer to borrow and offered me a snack and drink.

Then I met Heather who was amazing. This woman took my dry, acne scarred face and molded it into a beautiful, glamorous, smooth face. She made me feel like a pampered princess. After talking with Christie again for a bit and looking over her extensive wardrobe for some inspiration and other lingerie options, we got started. I was nervous for all of 5 minutes after getting started, though. Christie made me feel so comfortable and confident.

I felt beautiful, sexy, and sassy (for the first time ever in my life). I left feeling confident with my head held high. All of this was an amazing experience, worth every penny, all of the cliche things you’d expect me to say but let me just tell you about the reveal! I was super excited and nervous to see how these pictures actually turned out. I have never modeled before, haven’t had professional pictures done in 6 years, and had never even attempted anything quite like this.

Christie made an amazing video with some of the pictures she took and as soon as it started I lost my breath and even said out loud to my fiancé “oh my goodness, that’s me” while having a mini heart attack. Then I cried. I cried because I didn’t know I could be beautiful. I didn’t know I could be sexy. Christie made me all of these things!! And there’s photo evidence of it!! I have never experienced something that truly improved my self confidence like this. I have been riding on a positivity high since I walked out of the studio.

I feel like this experience reignited the spark that begins to dim 7 years into a relationship. This isn’t just pictures, it’s not just a photoshoot, it’s truly life-changing. I am so confident now; I’m happy with my curves, confident in my skin, and excited to do it again!! Don’t hesitate. If you don’t think this is for you- you’re wrong. Talk to Christie, there’s something in this for everyone and you will finish this experience feeling better about yourself than you ever thought possible.

Thank you, Christie, for changing my entire visual of myself. I don’t look in the mirror and see all the imperfections like I used to and I can’t express how much that has changed my perspective on life. I’m confident, and nothing exudes radiance better than confidence.

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!!!

Why?

I have people tell me all the time they want to do a boudoir shoot for a significant other…once in a while, I get my favorite ones, the ones that want to do it for them…who don’t feel the need to validate their reason for doing something for themselves!  I am in the category of women who are at the age where I no longer have to prioritize my happiness around my child, or my husband, or worry what my family will think if I want to do something that makes me appreciate being alive and healthy and enjoying being myself, unapologetically, I do it!!  It is such an empowering experience to be so vulnerable and open. To be scared and nervous, and do the thing anyway…and then to do it and OWN it…even better!!!

I recently had another shoot done, my husband did the photographs and they are amazing, yes, I am curvy, no, I am not as young as I used to be, no, I do not care that my co workers have all seen my ass now lol!!  They are an example to you, I want every woman to have confidence, to be trusting of another person and open yourself to being a stronger, better version of yourself.  It truly is amazing.

There were shot in one of my most favorite places, Asheville NC.  I met the most amazing make up artist there her name is Leah Milan and I cannot wait to get back up there and meet more fabulous people!

I love love love helping all women from all walks of life, embrace the beauty of being alive and powerful!  Let me show you what I can do for YOU!!

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!!!

Excitement, as usual!

Hey everyone!! June 1st, here we are, I feel like I have been in a whirlwind…

As you may know, I am a nurse, I have always had a passion for women’s health, this is why I find such fulfillment in doing boudoir photography, it’s not just pictures, these women walk out of our studio with a new found part of themselves…One that’s brave and fierce, not to mention beautiful!!!  Anyway, you get it, I love what I do!!

When my husband and I got married seven years ago, we went through infertility treatments for a year, I was working in mother/baby at a large hospital…not a great place to work when you want a baby of your own and it won’t happen.  So I left that area and since then have done a few different things in nursing, from insurance work to hospice care.  I had gotten burned out on the whole nursing thing, it is truly exhausting on so many levels.  But then…I applied for a job at WFUBMC’s new Birth Center back in April and was offered a position. I started April 22 and since then it has been crazy lol.  The Birth Center isn’t open yet, and to this day we still haven’t been told the date it will be, but I am super excited about it.  I am glad (in some ways) that we didn’t get pregnant back then, and I have closed that chapter of my life, now on to grand-babies one of the years way in the future, my son graduates high school next Saturday!

My photography has taken a back seat for the past six weeks while I have been training Monday-Friday, but now we are excited to be booking more shoots again. There have still been a few and I am working on getting some fresh pictures out to show you all soon!! We have a couple of spots open for wedding in the fall and for next year as well, we are working on a website for that type of photography too!

Now is the perfect time to book your shoot, we have some specials going on for June, get in touch with us to chat about how we can show you a new side of yourself!!  336-710-8567 or Created Wonderfully Boudoir

These hotties are fifty years old, we can’t believe it either!!! (And two of my best cheerleaders!!) Just like everyone that comes and trusts us with this experience, they totally blew it away and felt amazing afterward!
