Miss M came in a bit nervous (which is very normal). I love to see the progression of confidence as a client relaxes and gets more comfortable with me and the session. When we were looking over her outfits she was leaning more conservatively and said well if I’m feeling brave for my last one I’ll do this (pointing to an outfit)….well needless to say the last outfit was nothing but a pretty white sheet. That’s the thing I hear over and over “you made this so much more comfortable than I imagined” so when you tell me your ‘excited but nervous’ just know that’s perfectly normal. Enjoy…

This past week I attended a Level Up | Boudoir Masterclass workshop, instructed by Petra of Bella Boudoir
Myself and 5 other photographers meet up in the amazing studio of Columbus Boudoir. The first day we all came a bit early and yes I finally stepped in front of the camera…I’ll share a few of those in another post 😉 Then onto two days of intense learning and shooting. We shot with four fabulous ‘models’ (and when I say model, I mean 4 regular women who answered a call on facebook). They were all so gracious to put up with us! I’ll share a few of each of them for you….lets start with Lady B

Inside my hypocrisy….
Why don’t you do a session, I often ask? And what do I hear back?

I don’t look like those girls
I’m not photogenic
I need to lose 15 pounds
I’ve had kids
I don’t know what I’ll do with the photos
It’s not in the budget
And the list goes on….
I hear this from potential clients, my friends, friends of clients, everyone!
I hear these excuses ALL the time and I have a rebuttal for each one! I feel in my heart if you want to be here (at the studio) and come in with an open mind and trust me, you’ll leave walking a little taller. You’ll feel a lot sexier and super empowered.

I stress to ladies that ANYONE can do this! And I’ll help you every step of the way. You pick outfits that flatter you and I’ll use poses/lighting/camera angles to do the same!

Well, I’m a hypocrite. Yes that’s right; I talk the talk but haven’t walked the walk. Why?

I don’t look like those girls
I’m not photogenic
I need to lose 15 pounds
I’ve had kids
It’s not in the budget
And the list goes on….
Many of my clients have asked me if I’ve done a session, my response no. WHY? Well umm…what do I say to that? There is no good answer to justify why. Although I will say, I’m always a little surprised and flattered that you beautiful ladies would actually think I could do what you do! Because remember, I’m the exception, I’m not like you lovely ladies. My hats off to you for being so brave, confident and trusting!

Most recently I had a client who was shocked and mentioned it every time we met and encouraged me to do it….oh the irony.

So I’m done being a hypocrite, ladies I want to be like you, I want to be pampered and feel beautiful. I want to celebrate being a woman!
And I know exactly what I’m going to with my photos! A lil album, some large framed portraits for my bedroom, maybe even some for my bathroom, a few wallets for my friends and family…ok maybe I’m getting a little carried away.

Anyways I’m on the hunt for the photographer that’s perfect for me. Someone experienced in ‘curvy’ girls and that matches the style that I’m looking for. I’m thinking I will be booking for March or April so we can all get thru valentines and recover! Plus I’ve got to save my pennies (or dollars ) I also have braces for a few more months and want them off for my photos (I think that’s a legit reason to wait just a couple months).

Don’t worry; I’ll share all about my experience as well give you a little peek!

Now off to Pinterest……Heres a peek at my board so far, let me know if you have suggestions 😉 http://www.pinterest.com/shannonjacobs28/my-shoot/

And my favorite image, because it just makes a blog post better. Sorry I couldn’t find who to give photo credit to!

Angela is one of my lovely makeup artists, if you book a session you may just get to meet her 🙂 She’ll be around the blog from time to time giving us some great tips on beauty and makeup! Be sure to let her know you loved her debut post….

Hello you gorgeous ladies!

This is my first blog so I’m very excited to share all my tips with you! Wish I could put every favorite product in this first blog but… I don’t want to spend all my cash and prizes in the first round 😉

My topic on this post is “How to look amazing for your Photo shoot” … Today we are focusing on your beautiful body and how to emphasize and perfect what you are already rocking 🙂

I have three very simple steps and three products that are a must have, I don’t work for any company that makes these product girls… This is from my own personal experience and working with these on photo shoot, wedding shots, etc… So are we curious yet? Here goes! Angela Todd’s foolproof 3-day body regime for your most amazing self!

Day one: epsome salt bath (yes the old fashioned $2 bag you can buy anywhere) in the hottest water you can stand. Relax in this bath for as long as you can stand it. Eliminates puffiness, extra water bloat, and as an extra bonus it helps with sore muscles.
epsom salt
Follow with this product called Fat Girl Slim on your legs and Fat Girl Six pack on your tummy. Before you hate me, I KNOW this product has a terrible name!! I hate it also!!! However, it has some key ingredient that are proven to tighten and tone skin. I’ve used it and have gotten clients feedback as well and its reasonably priced and it works!
Bliss-FatGirlSlim-Anti-Cellulite-Cream-Tight-and-Smooth-Skin-in-a-Jar-2

fatgirlsixpack

Day two repeat above.

Day 3 repeat the lotions and then use Tarte Maracuja Body Glow all over. This stuff is amazing, ladies. It’s not only rub proof but waterproof so next time you are in a bathing suit… Hell yeah! Bring it on! User tip: Let dry before dressing 😉
Tarte RGMWBB
All available online or at Ulta.

If you enjoyed my post or found anything helpful please like/follow me on Facebook! Angela Todd or Mira Salon 🙂

Until next time stay gorgeous! Xoxo, Angela

I love the outfit lady B brought for her session! She got it from Pinup Girl Clothing and completely owned it! Such a great choice for her style and body shape. More of lady B’s session to come but for now enjoy just a little tease.
