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!!!

Exciting news…and a sweet little video

I haven’t posted much about my life lately, mainly because I have been too busy living it to be able to pause and write about it…but there are lots of changes coming!!

First of all, we will be moving to a new location soon, there will, of course, be more information on that coming in the next few weeks (P.S. it’s PeRfEcT :D).  We are still booking appointments and are almost booked up for September and October (get in touch SOON if you are thinking of doing this for Christmas!!!).

Second, I am in the process of revamping my website, it’s just always a work in progress and I will be incorporating some professional help too.  There will also be more package options and different price points to suit every budget!

Third, we are now offering something really cool that I have came up with and named “alpha-body” sessions.  That’s where we take parts of your body and the shape of it, to spell out words, such as your lovers name or some other significant word that means something to you.  These sessions are so cool and I have examples at the studio that you can see!!

Lastly, I just love this shoot so much, she truly rocked it, so I made a little video to share too! I hope you all have a great day, thanks for stopping by and reading!!

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!!
