Thinking about 2018 I have so much to say….and yet I can’t think of anything to write. I’m gonna try to put my feelings into words…I’m not a writer so bare with me. 2018 was a rough year. My mom got sick, and then better (still thanking the Lord for that). I moved home and then back to Birmingham. I celebrated my one year anniversary with the man I’ve been waiting for my whole life. (it hasn’t been perfect, but its been interesting). And then on top of all that. I re-started La Photography and did something I thought I would never ever do…..
I took photographs of women in their underwear! From August to December
I photographed over 30 women in their underwear!! GASP I know!!!
If you had asked me even a year ago, I would have laughed in your face….ME DO A BOUDOIR SHOOT? HA! RIGHT! Not my thing….And then I did….and you know what happened?? I found my calling. This is what I’m meant to do.
See, I didn’t understand. I thought it was just taking sexy pictures…sometimes wearing…you guessed it….NOTHING!?!
But now I get it….It’s. SO. MUCH. MORE. THAN. THAT.
From the time a woman steps into my studio, it’s about changing the way she feels about herself. OR Celebrating how she feels about herself. I’ve seen women come in completely shy and insecure, knocked down time and time again. She does so much for everyone else, but barely takes care of herself. She’s lost herself and she’s desperately searching. And together we find that person shes lost. She might come in scared and uncertain, but she leaves EMPOWERED. CERTAIN. HAPPY.
AND that is why I do what I do. That’s why I will keep on keeping on. One woman at a time.
I’m so excited for 2019. I have so many dreams, goals, plans. Stay tuned!
