The new year bring's out so many wonderful things, new starts, new memories, wanting to try new things. New goals and resolutions for our wellbeing and the direction of our-lives.
I truly love this time of year and try to make a day or maybe 2 of all my planning and idea storming. This year I have decide to truly concentrate my business in the direction that I am most passionate about. The area that I feel every women should know, feel and experience at least once but really multiple times in their life. Beauty!!!!
Inside and out we struggle, triumph, forget, pursue, conquer and choose defeat. It is a never ending roller coaster at every age and every step. I feel no matter where you are in life, whether your a grandmother, a mother, haven't lost those last few pounds or just never looked at yourself that way, you should always feel beautiful. Feel sexy from the inside out, walk with a extra bounce in your step and truly know what it feels like to strut your stuff!
I hear all the time when I lose the last 5 pounds, I have had children now, my children have children, I'm not in fitness prep anymore. There will always be a reason or excuse not to feel your best. When truly we should always feel gorgeous and fabulous even in your sweats and ponytails. It should radiate from you, in your eyes, smile and how you walk.
Selfies oh how people love and hate selfies I applaud them. When you take a selfie it is because you have mentally noted that you feel gorgeous, that you are radiating that day that moment. Celebrate it, capture it and take it all in. There is nothing wrong with feeling good about yourself and giving yourself a pat on the back!
Take the time, stop right there.......close your eyes and think.....take a deep breath.....3 things that make you beautiful inside and out.....
Another deep breath......look in the mirror and with out any negativity, no judgement and for dear god don't fix your clothes and hair, 3 things you see that make you beautiful and sexy.....
3 things for each should come easily but in all honesty for most of us it doesn't. Start with 1 for each and next week 2 and the week after that 3. Look at you go hot stuff, you deserve it, every min of it. No negative judgment, raw, pure admiration for the most important person "SELF".
When I have women in the studio for glamour, boudoir etc. it is always the same I go over basic ways to pose and things to enhance their look for photos.
The biggest thing I do is explain beauty and sexy how does it feel, what is it, flirt, entice me, add some wiggle in your step, curve your body (curves, they're natural and there for a reason use them) and most of all remember your beautiful.
When leaving I find most women have an extra step in their bounce, some message the next day saying they feel awakened and others, when finally seeing their photos have squealed and even cried. This isn't my doing though I love assisting, capturing and being along for the journey, this is all them. Their beauty being recognized and celebrated! It is truly amazing that we forget and excuse ourselves so easily. When did we become less beautiful to ourselves and it's time for it to STOP.
This year I will be running promos, specials and champiagns to celebrate women.
I recently listened to one of my favourite speakers again for the millionth time, Sue Bryce, truly an amazing woman that talks about weight, age, confidence and all the things that keep us from capturing ourselves.
When this life has run it's course....what will those that admired us, loved us and knew our beauty have to look back on. The ones who always thought you were beautiful every step of the way. Memories yes, but why not photos of us celebrating ourselves. Showing the true power of feeling fabulous for who you are.
Portraits, glamour, boudoir, to down right raw sexy. Fabulous and over 50, celebrating what it means to be a women and triumphs. This and so much more to come this year.
Take it in, feel it and remember your are BEAUTIFUL!!!!
