The Wedding Industry
I have been in and around weddings for over 5 years. The stories are many, but a recent one really struck a cord with my soul. Shes much better with words than I am so I'll let you see what she said after her bridal boudoir experience.
"...I’m sorry for my late night email, but I couldn’t wait to tell you the impact you've had. Until this very day, I have tucked my chin in every photo I’ve taken since puberty. I wanted to look “tiny” and “small”... whatever that means... and I’ve hidden from the camera. I’ve sunk to the back of the crowd... and today... today I lifted my chin. I LIFTED MY CHIN. I squeezed my back. I relaxed my arms. And I looked like a freaking queen in every picture I took with my family. I didn’t need to look at them. I didn’t need to “check.” H.o.l.y. S.h.i.t. I don’t think I can explain what that felt like to hear you in my head saying “oh you like to hide,” but that was powerful and meaningful and freaking amazing.
There are NOT a lot of women in this world who can inspire other women to shine their lights the way you do. Too often I’ve watched and heard other women cut each other down to make themselves look or feel better. But you... you not only build a stage.. a platform... YOU give a leg up. You shine the light. You lit the darkness of self doubt... of self consciousness... of “hide, shrink, look small, shrug your shoulders, get in the back, tuck your chin.”
Self love is a mission. It’s something you have to practice and it’s not something that happens overnight... unless you do a shoot with you, Samantha. You... with your studio that doesn’t have a mirror. You... with your camera and your positivity and your assurances.
You. Changed. Everything.
I can’t wait to see the magic you made in a few weeks, but I had to tell you. I am not the same... and it’s all your fault.
One of the most frequently asked questions that I receive is , " but what do I do?"
Girl , don't worry I gotchu . See I get a little bossy during your photo-shoot. I am going to be so busy telling you what to do ( Chin up, move that shoulder, pop that hip , move that finger) that you wont even have time to worry about " what to do" you will already be doing it !
I am an expert at posing , lighting & angles , so all you have to do is show up.
You will be feeling those #goddessvibes in no time.
