Let me tell you a little bit more about my glamour photo sessions...
I introduced Glamour sessions to my offer thinking of mums and mums-to-be. Thinking of regular day to day life ….and how us women are caught in heist of keeping everything in check, before we allow ourselves to think about our own needs.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard comments and unsolicited advise regarding my curves or dressing style. “You’re going to have that piece of cake??” , “No, this top is no good for you” , “Try darker colours to mask your shape” ...it’s even more daunting when it comes from a loved one.
But I try to look at my self and acknowledge my ‘imperfections’, my curvy shape, tired eyes, messy hair and stretch marks. Yes I don’t get much sleep, I don’t always get to eat regular meals and my body wears signs of motherhood (proudly I may add!) but it doesn’t mean I’m no longer an attractive woman! It only means that right now I accept to prioritise my family over my own needs. If my ill baby needs me at night I agree to that sleepless night, I agree to fill my little girl’s lunch box to the brim before taking care of my hair and make up and I agree to read that “just one more story” five more times. I fully accept the challenge, embrace and cherish these moments while they last. This is what grounds me in motherhood and I know I’m not alone in this boat.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, you may feel overrun with responsibilities, disheartened or alienated, but even in a complete lack of grace and total zero patience moments, you are still THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF!
And this is exactly what these shoots are designed for. To let you bring it all out and shine unrestricted.
To enjoy being you! Celebrate being you! And keep a footprint of this day as a little reminder to your day to day challenges that you are absolutely i n c r e d i b l e !
Let me capture your glow!
