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

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!

 

 

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!!!

Flashback Friday…

This was an experiment I did with my husband almost three years ago, he had been down for three months with a back injury and had just had surgery one week prior to this.  Being the loving wife I am, made him let me play with some new lights I had lol, that is the life of being married to a boudoir photographer 😀 …I was pleased with them anyway (he IS a hottie), and dug them back up a couple of weeks ago when I had a male ask me about doing a shoot.  (Yes, we will shoot them after a consultation, as well as couples!)

Keep in mind we have gift certificates available for you to give a loved one, this would be the ultimate gift!!

Enjoy!!
