Hey there stunning Mama.
You there sitting in your sweats at 3pm, wondering when the last time you had a shower was.
Can I tell you something? YOU ARE LOVELY. BEAUTIFUL. UNIQUE. VALUABLE. NEEDED.
Insecurities can often feel like our own private things, but I want you to know that you are not alone in feeling them. So many women have revealed to me feeling less than perfect + how it holds them back from any sort of desire to be photographed with their families.
“I’ve put on a bit of extra baby weight that I just can’t kick + I’m feeling not so great about it.”
“I’m an adult + I have braces; I don’t want to have family photos taken with me like this.”
“I really hate my wrinkles; can you photoshop them all out?”
Just today as I was helping to style a friend/client’s family outfits for an upcoming Photo Session, she shared with me her frustrations at her body image right now.
This is what I said to her + this is what I want to say to you:
“Everyone has some feature or something they’re not over the moon about. I think documenting your family together right how you are is fantastic all the same. Your children will not remember your weight…they’ll remember your kind eyes, beautiful smile + your love.”
So remember lovelies, that you are stunning just as you are. Please don’t let anything hold you back from seeing that today. The rest of us see you as wonderful so you might as well, too. ; )
