Size or age doesn’t matter.
We don’t care if you are a size 2 or a size 22, 25 years old or 85 years old. For me, I want all women to celebrate their unique femininity. That truly means ALL women. Don’t put boundaries on yourself just because you “think” it’s not for you. That is just your brain lying to you.
You don’t have to lose 5 or 10 pounds to book a shoot.
Here is a tip, ladies: wardrobe is key! With the proper wardrobe, you are giving your photographer the ability to pose you any way they would like. By posing you properly, we will always make you look as good as you look in real life, if not better!
By the way, most women are wearing the wrong bra size. The proper bra size makes you look firmer, trimmer, and way hotter. Please do yourself a favor and get yourself measured!
And, by the way, your period isn’t an excuse to cancel a shoot; a little bloat doesn’t really show on camera.
No, we can’t just Photoshop that out.
Okay, yes, there are SOME things we can Photoshop out, like that little tattoo you got one drunk night when you were 18. Maybe that can easily go, but if it covers your whole back, maybe not. Talk to your photographer about their Photoshop policies before you book them! While I am happy to fix temporary blemishes, I’m not going to reshape your body….
The more it hurts, the better it looks.
A lot of photographers bill a photoshoot as a fun day in which you will be pampered… almost like a spa day. It’s true: it is fun! BUT I am here to tell you that even though you WILL feel amazing, it is also a lot of work. We are going to pose you in positions you don’t usually get in to, and make you wear uncomfortable shoes and wardrobe. Your back will be sore, and you may get blisters on your feet, but I promise you it’s worth it. Even though it might feel weird, trust us when we pose you. Our expertise is what you are paying for! Your photos will be fabulous, and you might walk away with a newfound appreciation for models.
The women I photograph aren’t supermodels; they’re just like you and me. With good wardrobe choices, professional hair and makeup, and my expertise with light and posing, your photos will be stunning.
