I cannot tell you how many times I’ve had someone comment on my photos that they wish they had someone to do this for, or “one day, when I get married, I’m going to do this”. Why do we feel the need to justify the things that we want to do? Of course, we get a lot of clients who gift the products from their session to someone else. And that’s great. But the number one person you should do this for, is yourself. There is nothing wrong with that. Enough with the guilt that we put on ourselves. Aren’t there enough critics in the world around us? Give yourself a break. Give yourself permission to take care of yourself. Everybody benefits when you do. If you want to get made up, put on some sexy shit and strut around in front of my camera for a few hours, do it!! If you want to splurge on a giant piece of wall art of yourself to hang in your home, do it!! You don’t need a reason other than you just wanted to have the experience. And trust me when I say, it’s an indescribable experience. Let’s make 2020 the year we let go of the guilt, let go of the excuses and make ourselves and our happiness a priority.
