Show your daughter you love your body so that she may love her own. Tell her stories of each stretch mark, physical scar and emotional bonds that almost broke you so that she embraces her own and doesn’t break when she falls. We all fall down at sometime but it is HOW WE RISE from the depth of our despair that determines our story. SHOW her she doesn't need a prince but she will be her own hero to save herself when you do the same for yourself.
Real Fairy Tales are those of Women who Loved themselves so Fiercely that when the world told them what they couldn't be they laughed and said, "watch me".
I know you are tired, the days are long but the years are short. Whether your baby is 2, 12 or 18, I promise you that you want to celebrate and honor this moment in time. Not later when you lose the baby weight, or when things are calmer and easier. I'll tell you a little secret, NOW is the perfect time to celebrate you, to love you, to honor you and your journey right at this moment. This is your sign from the universe that the time is NOW to capture these moments before you blink and your babies have fled the nest. I see you mama and together we will make *MaGiC*
One day you will look back at this moment and see the Love and Perfection you dreamed of and you will feel deep gratitude and self love that you let yourself be captured forever in this moment.
Let's talk about the Elephant in the Room...
in the past decade and then some, I have worked with HUNDREDS of women and girls of all ages. In all my years working with them in front of or behind the lens I have YET to find ONE SINGLE WOMAN who isn't uncomfortable with some aspect of her body and MOST are uncomfortable in front of the camera. WHEW..... Don't you feel better reading that? YOU ARE NOT ALONE. You are here because you want to be captured, remembered and treasured, we all do but it is scary to be so vulnerable to allow yourself be captured and to really be seen.
I get you.
I am you.
You are me.
About the Session
All of my Motherhood and Family Sessions start with meeting me, either a phone call or I prefer a zoom call. Yeah, I know we are all over the whole zoom thing but trust me on this. When we meet face to face AHEAD of our session it is the first step into taking down some of those barriers we all put up to protect our hearts. But, I need you to drop some of them so that I can really capture you and the love you have for your family and children. On our call we are going to get down to the nitty gritty of motherhood, the good and the bad, you are talking to a kindred spirit, a long lost friend you didn't know you had. We will also talk about details and wardrobe, your concerns on being photographed and anything else. You will get off the call and take in a deep breathe and know you made the right choice.
The day of the session it will be like seeing an old friend. We are going to laugh, probably sweat a little wrangling children and maybe drop a few potty jokes to make that grumpy teen laugh.. hey whatever it takes! It won't be as torturous as you thought it would be, in fact you might even enjoy it a little!
A week or two after your session we will meet on zoom again to go through your images together. Why?! Because one of the joys of my life is watching you see the images for the first time. Seeing your reaction to all the love in your heart being captured is why I do what I do. I'm selfish really, but your joyful tears are the fuel to my fire to keep doing the work I do both in front of and behind the lens. We will go through the image together, i'll help you make your selections and if you wish to print anything we can talk about it at that time. It will be fun and easy and I make that agonizing decision making process super easy and fun!
The end result are priceless and every time you look at the images you will thank the Universe that you took that courageous leap that day to email me and work together. I will also thank the Universe that you trusted in me to be truly seen.
You see this is an energetic exchange of the hearts, we need each other and together we will make *MaGiC*
