What an amazing day it is to be alive. I feel awake, excited and nervous for what the future holds for me and the changes that are coming to my business. Which says a lot considering I haven’t felt that for months. For Months I have felt numb, swimming in a sea of confusion and lost loneliness. Over the past several months I have dedicated my time to getting me mentally healthy by overcoming depression and learning to live with my anxiety. I have been healing from a state of feeling “broken” helped me to realize things that I want to change in many areas of my life and what areas of focus will bring me the most joy. Moving forward my focus will be on female photography both teen and adults, helping them to see what truly amazing people they are inside and in their body. Which means I will no longer be offering wedding photography effective immediately.
One of the boundaries and goals that I established for myself and business is that I am going to take time to vacation with my family. However, I don’t have the ability to plan family vacations during wedding season (summer) when my children are on their vacation because couples have specific dates set. With that being said, I am very excited for this transition in my business because it gives me the freedom to spend more time with my children during their vacations.
I will continue offering Couples portraits because I absolutely love working with couples. Through my boudoir studio I will also be offering couples boudoir sessions. It is an amazing way for a couple to relight the spark after the craziness of everyday life stresses. As a woman, mother and a wife I know first-hand that we get lost in the titles of what we do and the spark in our relationship tends to dull over time. We feel less desired and less sexy as time goes on. Having a couple’s boudoir session reinstates the fact that we are still sexy in the new body we have! We are still desired and appreciated and loved.
I will continue working with High School Seniors. It is important to me for teen girls to see that high school is just a moment and that there is so much more to life than the pressures of the tabloids. Mentoring young girls has becoming my heart and soul over the past couple of years and I am excited to be able to spend more time getting to do this.
I am so excited spend my time focusing on women. Helping them overcome their own feelings of “broken”. Overcoming the feeling of not being enough. Not being sexy or worthy. I am excited to spend my time dedicated to helping women see themselves through honest eyes!
