The biggest challenge of my business is not finding clients, is not creating the photos, is not explaining what I do.. The biggest challenge is having photos to show my work.
Because most of my clients live this experience for private reasons and don’t allow me to use their pictures. The reasons vary, some do it to boost their self esteem, some do it to celebrate something, others to motivate them to achieve a goal, to keep healthy, some to gift their partners (every form of love)
So, sometimes I need to find women to model for me. Women that want to live the experience and want to help other women to be happy too.
I am quite happy to be surrounded by amazing women that understand my mission and want to be part of it.
This time I found Miss R. the amazing woman you see in the photo. Four of my clients are her friends and she has being watching my work for a long time wishing to have the experience herself, but for some reasons she couldn’t do it. One day when she saw I was looking for “models” she send me an email telling me the reasons why she would like to do it.
Her email touched me.
I am not going to list her reasons here, but I can tell you that most of us feel the same and the biggest problem is that we think we are the only ones. If women were more honest to each other and opened up to other women for real we would all feel better, we would all help each other a lot more.
We need to feel we belong and the best way is to connect truly and free ourselves from any kind of pressure from others. We need to BE OURSELVES and LOVE OURSELVES. No one has the right to tell us how we should look or behave.
Today is Monday. The official day to start again! So let’s to it. Let’s hold each others hand and walk together. If one of us fall.. the others will pick us up.
Miss R. It was a huge pleasure to meet you, to photograph you, to help you and thank you for the trust (and the mug and chocolates haha) You are a strong and beautiful woman.
You might not see and feel it all the time (like the rest of us) but now you have your photos to look at and see the reality – without photoshop! Hope the photos will bring a smile to your face every time you look at them.
