This gorgeous lady decided to gift herself a photoshoot with me for her 30th.
She planned it so well, had a really clear idea of the styles of photos she wanted, but I don’t think Erin was prepared for just how profound the experience would be. Erin’s words…
“As it was my 30th birthday mid year, I decided late last year that a great present to myself to end my 20’s would be a portrait shoot that was about me rather then the usual family pics.
After losing 15kg, I was feeling ok about myself, but still had issues with my confidence.
I also want to be able to look back when I’m an elderly lady and admire my looks before they faded hahaha.
Leading up to the shoot I was quite nervous and a bit of an anxious wreck when I walked in.
Paula and Katie were so welcoming and made me feel so at ease – they made me feel at home.
After shooting for the first few minutes Paula showed me one of the pictures,
To see myself in that kind of way really opened my eyes mentally to how the world most likely sees me.
Since having the shoot I actually have so much more confidence in myself.. I feel like the shoot was exactly what I needed to realize I’m no longer a girl, but a women.
I feel proud. Proud that its me in those images.
I now realise that I am beautiful (I feel weird saying it though). I realise I should be proud of the way I look and to hold my head high.
I realise that when people look at me, they aren’t necessarily looking at me thinking I’m a hideous monster.. They may actually be thinking I look nice
For the first time in my 30 years, I have true confidence within myself, not just a front I put on, but real internal confidence.”
What an awesome way to gift herself – it was so special to see the transformation in Erin’s confidence, she just elevated and it was so beautiful to be a part of.
