Client Testimonial: Self Acceptance and Body Confidence

Alina Wright 013 900x601 Client Testimonial: Self Acceptance and Body Confidence

“In the last year I pushed myself to reach new levels of self acceptance and love, part of which led me to Jessica Michael Photography.

Boudoir photography is often marketed as a gift for a significant other – but it is truly one of the most empowering things I’ve ever done for myself.

While I choose not to share everywhere, my personal Instagram has seen a few – and with that I’ve found a community of bold, supportive, strong women who can identify with the journey to a place of positivity I’ve been on. Others view this professional artwork as though I’m ‘too open’, that I don’t have standards, that I’m insecure and attention seeking. (For those of you who know me, feel free to find the humor in this as I have )

Your journey and my journey will not be the same . I respect women and how they feel confident- made up or barefaced, bikini or hijab. I will always be outspoken in support of people living their lives authentically.

I’m so proud to wear this shirt in the hopes that others will find confidence in seeing themselves through a different lens. You can be feminine, and still strong and powerful. You can be body positive, and still be elegant. You can support people who do things differently than you without it being a compromise to your own success.

Be kind, and be yourself.”

Free Resource: How to get Ring Video Doorbell for Free

Dora Bowden Oakes 046 900x600 Free Resource: How to get Ring Video Doorbell for Free

 

With all of the reports that are going around about people’s packages being stolen off their porch while they aren’t home, and other suspicious activity that happens without us even realizing it, I’ve been looking into amping up my home security efforts. 

My husband and I have been renovating our home for as long as we’ve lived here, and we are finally making some big progress, however one of the things that has changed during this process is that the main entry of our home is now at the opposite end of the house from where my office is, and of course, that’s where I spend most of my time, so there have been times visitors have stopped in and I didn’t hear them knock, or there was a package that needed signing for and I didn’t know anyone was here, so a video doorbell has been the number one thing on my wish list for a good 6 months now!

I don’t like to make big/important purchases without doing some research, so I’ve been looking into all of my options and the company I have seen the highest reviews for is Ring, they are a company that offers a selection of video doorbell systems, as well as other home security options. I’ve been looking into them for awhile and have been planning to purchase a system in the new year, but today I learned about a way I can get it for free, and I wanted to pass that along to you!

One of the most common comments/questions I hear from ladies who are interested in booking a session is that they aren’t sure what to wear. They don’t have anything, they don’t know what to shop for, or sometimes they just are too afraid or busy to even try and will show up with nothing! 

No worries! What to wear for your boudoir session is one of the main things we will discuss during your consultation! We will discuss styles that will flatter your specific body type, and talk about things that photograph well and what to avoid.   Continue reading »

Black Lace and Candlelight

Kalaa Wilson Brand Ambassador 099 900x601 Black Lace and Candlelight

 

This was my second session with Kalaa, who also happens to be one of our talented stylists. Her first session was a Bridal Boudoir session she did as a gift to her now husband. Shortly after her session she and I became good friends and she started working for the studio! Her first session was very sweet and feminine, she was nervous and unsure of herself, but when she came back for this session about a year later, she was full of so much more confidence that we were able to create a much more moody set of images, with a very sultry and sexy vibe.
