Dear diary... why is @annikanoelle so d**n cute?! ✨
Throwing it back. Upside down. Sideways. To the days when @allisonturcotteboudoir made me look like a little @calvinklein model for like a few minutes.

Missing the collaboration days with all the stunning photographers that live and work beside me. Check her stuff out, book yourself some feel good photo shoots!

It’s a funny thing, practicing what you preach. 
My life goal is to help show other women just how beautiful and unique they are... but could I do it for myself? Could I see MY own beauty from an outsiders perspective? 
I woke up the morning of my shoot, and all of a sudden I wasn’t sure. I hoped for ONE good shot. I started to analyze everything about my body that I’ve been working so hard for.

And then I stopped. 
I closed my eyes. Took a deep breath, and opened them again. But this time, as a photographer, not a client. I looked for the good, AND I FOUND IT. and with it, I could feel a little boost in confidence. A butterfly flittering about in my core. I tried on a few different outfits, and with each change, I felt myself being more and more comfortable with ME. 
By the time the shoot came, I was nervous, but the excitement FAR overshadowed any doubt that was left. 
Natiya is a dear friend, and someone I trust so much. Mere moments into our shoot in her studio... I was naked. 
You see, I’ve been in her shoes. I photograph women for a living. And with that, nudity becomes less and less of a “thing”. It’s about art, and shapes, and beautiful composition, not varicose veins and cellulite. 
Once we got to the beach, everyone else faded away, and it was just me, Natiya, and the ocean. I tried to do the things I always have my clients do. I focused on MOVING, laughing, and trying not to think too hard. 
As we looked at shots on the back of the camera, we literally broke out into dance on the beach. Pure joy overflowed.

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. The photos you receive are secondary to the EXPERIENCE. Everyone deserves to feel free in their own body. PROUD of the hard work they put in. 
Comparing yourself to others won’t ever work. You simply can’t be anyone else. 
I can honestly say I am the happiest I’ve EVER been. In my life, my career, my relationship... everything. And I truly believe that happiness in life starts with happiness  in yourself. 
So close your eyes, take a deep breath, and when you look at yourself, do it like an outsider. Search for the good. I promise you won’t have to look hard♥️ 📸 @portrait_of_health edits: me!

Old habits die hard 🖤 What’s one thing you’re working to change this year? I have a lot on my list 📃 but progress is often slow and never linear, so I struggle to strike the balance between patience and pressure. I need to remember the difference between taking a step back (to appreciate how far I’ve come) & taking a step backwards (and regressing into older versions of myself)... Can you relate? 📷: @emmarizzophoto at @dearblossomstudios 🌱

Understanding yourself is power.⠀
Loving yourself is freedom.⠀
Being yourself is bliss. ⠀

Ahhhhh. Yesterday. How amazing to be surrounded by such a wondering group of women. My favourite part of doing sessions like this is the energy after the shoot finishes. When women walk in, it is so easy to see their beauty, but when they see it too; that is magic & the reason I love my job. ⠀

Shannon Smith (@artistshannonsmith) is a Body Positive Boudoir Photographer that specializes in helping women with body & self image and female empowerment. She is a fully inclusive photographer that captures women & non-gender folks of all different sizes, shapes, ages, cultures and lifestyles. •
The luxury experience Shannon provides will not only leave you feeling pampered, it will also leave you feeling confident, beautiful, fulfilled, and like you can take on the world. Our studio setting is that perfect balance of luxury and feeling cozy at home, with wood walls, lots of greenery and accents of gold and marble. •
Shannon and her team are different from other photographers out there because they are incredibly attentive about providing you the best service possible, having you feel safe and secure, while also having fun while you reconnect with who you are. 
Shannon's images are about finding your strength, becoming neutral with your body, and about creating memories (not just images). •
Shannon is also doing an ATB Financial Crowdfunding campaign that ends March 10th. This campaign is to assist female entrepreneurs in reaching the next level in their business. Her goal through this campaign is to invest in larger marketing, hiring an employee and invest in a commercial studio. The funds allocated, should we reach our goal, will go to these endeavours. You can support Shannon’s cause through the link in her bio.

Fast forward three years, I am now a full time photographer, own a studio in Warwick RI, and specialize in children of all ages, family, couples, weddings & boudoir.❤️

Had some boudoir photos done by the incredible @mmboudoir and I've never felt better. I'll spare you the full body shots but I want this here to tell other women to do what scares you if it's something you want to do. Don't let negative self talk and societal body shaming stop you from loving who you are.

This was a major, major step out of my comfort zone but I wanted to do something for myself to celebrate everything my body has been through. 
It may be wider from pregnancy, stretched to it's limits and figuring it's way back again, scarred from c-sections, gallbladder surgeries and ovarian cyst removals. My boobs may not have the same relationship with gravity and my legs are thicker than I'd prefer but dammit this body has been through some shit and gave us this gorgeous baby girl and I felt like that deserved to be celebrated. 
While this was a gift for Joaquin to commemorate 8 years together, it was more of a gift to myself. And a reminder that just because you may not be exactly where you want to be physically, your body is capable of amazing things and you should be grateful for it everyday. 
Thank you for making me feel pretty, comfortable, normal and natural in these photos Melissa. Id have never done this if it wasn't for you.

Before we can speak about self-love, we need to address self-acceptance.  Learn to accept your body, flaws and all.  Life is way to short to constantly be unkind and unforgiving towards ourselves.  Fact is .... the sooner we are self-accepting, the sooner we will fully embrace self-love. And when that happens we won't focus on wanting to be anyone else but ourselves
