You and Mee got this!
You and Mee are BEAUTIFUL
On my third cup of coffee-but hoping it will be the first one I’ve actually drank yet. Each one before I had a couple sips and was so busy I didn’t get to the rest. But I gave myself a challenge and each one, I’m going to add less sugar than the one before. Rolls eyes. Why did it have to be today.
I drinking my less sweet than before coffee, and while being caffeinated, I am editing photos, bunkering in-I am crossing my fingers for productivity….and I’m off…guess the less sugar than before caffeinated coffee really works ;)
I was selling some stock and I asked my daughter of she would come sit in one of the chairs as a model. She slipped right into this pose, and I thought, “Oh my word, I’m pretty sure I was like this as a child too.” When I wasn’t posing myself growing up, I was posing other people around Mee. And here we are, second generation in!
For some reason this makes Mee chuckle.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
——from A Return to Love, by Marianne Williamson.
I am packing, and it’s really quiet, so I go looking for this little man. He is stuck, standing in an ice cream pail, can’t move, and tries to sit but can’t even do that.
I double over laughing and he laughs and claps with Mee.
I think he is telling Mee how much he loves ice cream. #youhadtobethere #littleboyinicecreambucket
When I had a photo session done of myself, there was this moment I stopped and looked in the mirror.
It was the first time in my entire life that I could remember looking in the mirror and not seeing blemishes, imperfections, things I wasn’t happy with or things I “needed” to change.
I stopped and saw Mee. I looked into my own eyes and for the first time ever, I saw myself. I saw light and love and beauty. I haven’t ever been the same since.
You don’t need to loose 20 pounds for a photoshoot or get plastic surgery to live your life. You are beautiful NOW.
This is my why. This is why I’m choosing to photograph women. #mywhy
Glamour is letting your sparkle shine through
Gratitude- have you ever thought about this before? Your power comes from being in this moment right now. You can’t do anything in the Past, and you can’t do anything in the Future, where you live and breathe and have beauty is in your decisions right Now.
Darling you do have a life, today live it thoroughly. You don’t want to look back and think you didn’t live.
I should have flipped one more. Oh the fashion inspired yet beauty image!
I love photographing real woman and giving them this look and feel. It’s about beauty. It’s about connection. It’s about loving themselves yet again. Love
Welcome to my living room. Here I am dreaming about photographing real woman and giving them that beauty shot they want. To accomplish this - I am studying. Posing. Practicing. Drawing it with my pen and paper. Looking in a mirror. Watching the light and of course magazine flipping. I stop here because of the simple beauty shot here. I love.
One of the best things about photographing women and taking them through a make over transformation, is that you become friends with hair stylists and make up artists. I love connecting and making friends with the beauty industry!!
Hello beauty of fall
Contemplating my next moves for getting a web site for myself this time. So happy it’s my turn. I have gone through the process with so many fabulous brands and businesses. But excited it’s for Mee, to elk my clients through what their experience with Mee will be. And a blog. Oh how I crave to blog with beautiful images and my life musings. Beautiful women + their stories. It makes my heart sing!
I have heard you accomplish 80% of your dreams that you write down.
Last night I went to a business Mastermind with a group of ladies, where we share our business dreams and hopes.
I shared my new Photographing Women with Contemporary Glamour Portraiture dream and was so happy to be there and talking about it, I was almost giddy!
In order to go and know what I was going to talk about, I had to write it all out-my dreams and how I was going to do specific tasks. Next on the list? A web site, I drew it all up and showed them what it was going to be.
Writing things out really helps. Now I know how many images I need, where they are going to be placed on the web site and I’m not guessing.
I think a lot of times we let our dreams stay a guess work. Thanks to coffee and writing it out, those dreams can become real steps and can become not so distant realities!!! Yeah for coffee, notes and giddy meetings!
