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!!!

Addictions…

People can be addicted to a lot of different things…drugs, alcohol, people, sex, tattoos, cars, animals, shopping, chocolate, shoes, etc…the list can go on and on…

Most are bad for you, but some are good…take for instance a boudoir shoot experience…they are fun, make you feel good, make you feel good about yourself, give you a boost of confidence, and make you see yourself in a better way and to accept you, as you are.  To me that isn’t a bad addiction!!

This beautiful lady had her second shoot with us recently, and I feel she was even more amazing during this one!!  She is one of the most authentic people and her smile lights up a room…I love you lady and thank you for being one of our biggest fans!!

Enjoy these and give us a call to schedule your shoot today!!

Ms. A

This beautiful lady wanted to do something special for her husband and herself!!  She came in and got to take a break from reality and feel like the gorgeous person she is…we are so blessed to be a part of this experience for all of our wonderful client!!

As you can see, she totally demolished this shoot and is a total babe!!!  Thanks Ms. A for allowing us to know you 😀

Why we do what we do…

I am humbled, honored, and amazed at the women who trust in us to do this experience!!!  We have been in the studio for two years and have met some of the most amazing women and heard some incredible stories.  We have laughed, and we have cried, and we have celebrated together…as women.

Some have come into the studio that we have never met before, but they leave and they are our new friends.  We do not just “take pictures” here.  My team of beautiful ladies that help me out are my biggest cheerleaders and fans, and I could not do this without them!!  It is truly magical to see the transformation during a shoot when every single woman I have in front of my camera starts off so unsure and then just blossoms into a confident, sexy, beautiful soul and walks out with their head a little higher, it truly is a passion for me!

I have expended quite a bit of energy into learning this art, and I learn and improve with every shoot.  We do this because we love empowering women!!  Women forget they are beautiful creatures and we get so busy being mamas, wives, caregivers, employees, and everything else that we are, that we forget to celebrate being a woman!

I know sometimes life gets busy, you feel your body isn’t “perfect,” your nerves tell you that you can’t do this, you don’t think you can look like the past clients we have shot, or you feel you need an excuse to do a shoot…I know it’s easy to get negative BUT go read some of our reviews here from our past clients who probably all felt the same way, but did it anyway and were glad they didn’t wait another minute!!

Happy birthday to Jessica, she’s the beauty at the top of this post today.  If you’d like to see more from her shoot, check them out here!! She is one of our awesome stories and one of our cheerleaders too!!

 

 

Double the fun!!

Here are a few more from recent couples sessions we did…I LOVE capturing the connection between people, from the laughs and smiles, to the sexy looks they have for one another…..and these peeps all rocked it!!! They all had to step out of their comfort zone and it was harder to do for the men than the women sometimes!!!  When it was all said and done, they all had such a fun time and have all said they would love to do it again. It is a great experience to have together and would make a great anniversary, engagement, or just make a new special occasion together!

One of our new favorite things…

We have been dying to try this for a long time!!!  We recently did a model call for couples so we could build our portfolio of that genre, if we liked doing them…we didn’t just “like” doing it, we LOVE it!!! It is cool to capture a couples passion for one another, but still keeping it rather tasteful!!  Here is a little teaser video we made to show off one of the couples we have done.  There is plenty more to see in studio, give us a call to come check out all of our new stuff!!  336-710-8567

Helllllllo High Point!!!

And hello beautiful client “M”!!!

We got to shoot at the new space, isn’t that light amazing?!?  This lady walked right in and owned this shoot like she had been doing this all her life!!!  I love when people just own it and love themselves the way she did. Then we went to lunch afterward and I got to know her even better, and she is even more amazing to me!!

Moving onward and upward, that is the theme of this shoot for all of us involved….

Enjoy and if you live in High Point and want to book a shoot, shoot us an email at createdwonderfullyphotography@yahoo.com and we will get it going and help you make some art!!!

Flash Back Friday

As we shoot at our new second location tomorrow for the first time, I feel the need to look back a bit at how far we have come…it’s hard to believe that in a few months, we will have been in the studio for two years!!  Wow, I am amazed and blessed to be doing what I do and to have the goals that I do.  I could not do this without my fabulous team and my clients who come in as clients, but leave as friends.  I love what I do so much! So, let’s look back at some of the wonderful people who have walked up my steps and had fun with us!  (Some of my best work can’t be shown publicly, if you ever want to see more and just meet me to ask all of your questions, let me know and we will make it happen!)

Dangerous Beauties…

So, I have had the serious crud the last couple of weeks and have been neglecting this blog…sorry about that!!

Here are a few of the ladies who joined us for an event we did for Valentine’s Day!  Yes, we allow weapons as long as they are unloaded and we trust you lol!!

I hope all of your loves enjoyed the gifts you gave them, and I hope all you readers enjoy their gorgeousness!!  Thanks to part of my awesome team Adrienne Horton and Taylor Sanders for such a busy fun filled day!

(No photographers were harmed during the shoot (ha! no pun intended…maybe…yes, I am a dork))

 

Experience

Having boudoir photos done is not just having pictures made, it is the complete experience of it.  How often do women take time for themselves, away from the kiddos and away from the housework, and away from all the busyness that we have as women?  Rarely.

This is a fun few hours where you get to be pampered and encouraged to step outside of your comfort zone in a safe, non judgmental, all female environment. You will be nervous at first, but the nerves always go away fast and you won’t believe how much fun you’re having and it will be over too soon!!

Read what others say about this experience here.

When the shoot is over, you’ll get to come back in a week or two (usually sooner) to see and purchase the images you love. It is addictive to many women, I have several repeat clients!!  Don’t put it off anymore, you can book and then take up to a year to schedule.  If you email me at createdwonderfullyphotography@yahoo.com and mention the blog special, you will get a bonus gift at your reveal session valued at $250!!  We look forward to working with you!!
