It's hard to believe that today is the last day of January already. In some ways it feels like forever since Christmas yet in others it feels like the year is just racing ahead.
Mother's day is only 4 short weeks ahead. This holiday has taken on a whole new meaning for me since becoming a mother 4 years ago myself. My children are my absolute world - but it's so true how much you can lose sight of who you used to be or you currently are when your day constantly revolves around meeting other people's needs before your own.
One of the things that absolutely breaks my heart is how many women shy away from the camera when they come to me for family pictures. Too often they only want images of their children or they spend their time telling me how terrible or tired they look.
I get it. It's exhausting. But we have to remember that we ARE somebody's everything and the job we're doing is hard but worth it. One day you'll want to look back at your family photos and remember who you were and how hard you worked for your family.
When I had my daughter's first birthday portrait taken, I spent the days leading up to it making sure she had the right clothes and that my husband's clothes were somewhat presentable and matching in colours. On the day of the shoot of course it was a big rush and we arrived at the studio and I felt an absolute state with messy hair and rushed make up. I remember feeling disappointed that the photographer barely knew our names and spent 30 minutes taking photos before cutting off the session. When we went back for our reveal, I felt horrible about myself but I bought the images anyway.
I decided then and there to make these sessions as easy and stress free as possible. By offering hair and make up and time for you to get ready and relax, you're guaranteed to not only enjoy the experience but end up with images that you feel beautiful in and are proud of! We do your make up the way you like it done so you still recognise the woman that you are.
