The Met Gala was a few weeks ago and I’m not going to lie… It was a thrill to watch.
Maybe that’s because the 2020 event was canceled and we all had a deeper appreciation for the festivities or perhaps it was seeing so many young, talented women owning their power for all the world to see.
I was most thrilled to see Amanda Gorman, the 23-year-old inaugural poet, and Naomi Osaka, 23-year-old tennis champion and mental health activist, as two of the hosts of the event.
Although it had me on the edge of my seat in awe, my main takeaway from this year’s event was how inaccessible today’s standards of beauty are.
If you’ve taken a scroll through Instagram, used any filters lately, or looked up what went into those Met Gala looks then you know exactly what I am talking about.
I did a little research and found that studies show, approximately 91% of women are unhappy with their bodies. On top of that, a whopping 5% of women naturally possess the body type often portrayed by Americans in the media.
It’s no surprise that self-love is a lifelong journey for many of us and to say my team and I are honored to be a part of yours is an understatement…
As your photographer, my goal is to blend my technical lighting and retouching skills with body-positive posing direction and empowerment coaching to create images together that genuinely showcase who you are.
I am never going to change anything about you but rather capture you in a way that conveys how I see the woman in front of me…
Which is as a powerful, divine goddess that shines from the inside out.
And together, we’ll create fine art images that will be worth cherishing for your life whether you display them in a Luxury Album, a piece of Vivid Metal Wall Art, or in a High-Resolution Digital Gallery (learn more about our dream products).
Included in your photo shoot is the fine art image retouching of all of your final images, among some other things (learn more about what’s included in your session fee).
Because fine art image retouching is so specialized, I get a ton of questions during our initial phone consultations about what that really means for your photographs.
So I want to clear the air…
During your shoot, I may at times share an image or two on the back of the camera as we take them so you will get to see exactly what is going on behind the scenes.
Seeing that the boudoir magic is working in real-time will instill some next-level confidence that will absolutely help you get into the zone.
When I show my clients their images during the shoot, they can’t believe that they are the ‘raw’ and unedited versions because they look so stunning.
With that being said, when editing your images, I am simply making sure your skin tone is even, erasing under-eye bags, smoothing over blemishes, and removing any bruises or strap indentations.
Not because you need to be anything different, but because we want the focus of your images to be on you.
Not many people want to look back on their images 10 years later and remember that breakout they had or that time they had a rough week at work and didn’t get enough sleep.
However, if you are someone who prefers to have your images unedited, we can do that too!
With our professional retouching, you don’t have to worry about looking 110% ready for shoot day because you already are 😉
Because no matter where your self-confidence is at, we want to help you celebrate being in your own skin.
You deserve to feel empowered and more confident…
