Sitting down and writing a blog post to my ideal client, or getting an ad ready for my Facebook page is my favorite time of day. I know I have a dozen other things to do, both at home and for work, and I’d rather be watching something new on Netflix (Bates Hotel, anyone?), and I’ll get to the things I have to do (dishes, laundry, vacuuming, meeting with clients, etc.), just like you, but for this little bit of time I get to do something that I really enjoy.
And that’s talking to YOU.
Someone asked me WHY in the name of Jesus do I like to take boudoir photos. Because it’s FUN. It’s fun to pick clothes or outfits for you (finally getting to use what I learned in cosmetology school about colors – spring, fall, you know), to help you make the sexiest photos for the love of your life. Or showing you how to pose to disguise or play down areas of your body that YOU think are bad (odds are no one else notices them as much as you do).
I like to make pretty things. My sister loves to take photos of beautiful flowers – me? Not so much. When I go to New Orleans, I take photos of the architecture and what have you, but it’s the PEOPLE that I concentrate on. When I go on a picture taking trip with my sister, I focus on people.
I want to give you something that you can hold in your hand, tomorrow, next month or in five years that will remind you that you ARE beautiful I have clients who’ve told me that they actually DO take their photos out and look at them, sometimes more than their husband or boyfriend. And that’s because I know that even if you’re giving these photos to someone else as a gift, your HAVING it done for you.
How do I know that? Because like you, I am a woman. I LOVE getting dressed up, I love putting on makeup and having my hair done. I love gossiping and telling secrets (seems like every job I’ve had included women telling me secrets, lol).
So, that’s some of the reasons why I do this.
And now I’m off to do a buch of crud I don’t wanna do.
