Illuminating Your Inner Glow

Glamour photography isn’t just about capturing external beauty; it’s about revealing the inner radiance that shines from within. It’s a celebration of self-confidence, strength, and empowerment, where every image tells a story of resilience and grace. Whether you’re celebrating a milestone, embracing your unique identity, or simply reveling in the joy of self-expression, a glamour photoshoot is a the perfect way to finally see yourself the way others do and the way you should.

As woman we are so critical of ourselves. It’s what makes us so amazing because we strive to constantly do better, but we never give ourselves the grace and love we give everyone around us. You cannot see yourself when you are happy or proud. You only look in the mirror to see flaws. And you’ve been around yourself for so long you forget how special you are.

It is hard to step back and really see yourself the way the people who love you do, but with a glamour photoshoot we aim to focus on what makes you beautiful inside and out so you can finally see that is absolutely ok for you to step out of your comfortzone and shine the way you were meant to.

Preparing for Your Empowering Glamour Photoshoot Experience

As you prepare for your glamour photoshoot, take a moment to remember you are more than you give yourself credit for, that everything you’ve done in life has led you to where you are. That all lows have led to the highs and we are here to celebrate you. It’s difficult to look at ourselves objectively, but that is why our team is here for you to understand what makes you you and how we can turn that into a beautiful empowering session where you finally see the amazing woman you are.

Your Glamour Photoshoot is meant to showcase you. The you that you want to be, the version of you that you hide away from, and the you that we suspect is already radiating when you aren’t caught up in all your self doubts. This is the you that has her cup filled and running over. The you that you know you can be and are when you give all of yourself.

Leading up to your photoshoot we want to talk about what you love about yourself, what you want out of this experience, and ultimately we want to understand why this is so important.

We know that these are not every day conversations, but this is not an every day kind of photoshoot either. This is an empowering glamour photoshoot and our calls are there to help guide you through preparing for your own session and help you feel empowered and ready to embrace the transformative experience that awaits.

Begin by envisioning the message you want to convey through your photoshoot. Whether it’s confidence, strength, elegance, or all of the above, let what you feel what you need, what you desire and what you want to showcase from yourself and your accomplishments guide you.

Creating the Vision: Planning your Outfits

By embracing your uniqueness, celebrating your individuality, and allowing yourself to step out and own your confidence will make outfit choices so much easier for your glamour photoshoot.

In this day in age sometimes we can get so caught up in what others think, but your photoshoot is all about you.

This is where your personality shines and where we want you to have fun with it.

Choose wardrobe pieces that make you feel powerful and confident, whether that means a suit, a flowing gown, sexy dress, or something completely unexpected. We have seen it all and love helping our clients bring out their best sides, so if you struggle to know exactly what you want, don’t worry. Schedule your consultation with us and we are here to guide you through your entire experience and creating looks specifically designed to make your glamour photoshoot stand out.

When selecting a location for your photoshoot, we are open to both in studio and out of studio. Both options include hair and makeup as well as the ability to do multiple looks. When it comes to choosing the perfect location if you have something in mind already let us know, but ultimately we believe location is the backdrop to you so don’t put too much stress on feeling like you need the answers before we speak. It will ultimately be secondary to your experience. We find that getting to know you and what you want out of this helps us make the best recommendation.

Finally, take time to pamper yourself in the days leading up to your shoot. You should be feeling absolutely excited and ready to have fun and relax during your session. If that means spa day or getting your nails done or something in between. The whole goal is for you to see how amazing you are when you get to take care of you ❤️

Embracing Your Strength: Posing with Confidence

In glamour photography, posing is a powerful tool for self-expression and empowerment and it is also the one thing that makes our clients the most nervous.

We understand how being in the front of the camera can feel. We totally feel awkward in front of the camera too. But that is why we focus so much on guiding our clients through their session. Not only showing you how to pose, but making you feel comfortable so each pose feels authentic to your energy and what you want from facial expressions, to where to place your hands. Ella is known for not only telling you what to do but showing you how to do it when the poses are a little bit more difficult.

Glamour Photography is about embodying confidence, strength, and grace in every movement, allowing your inner beauty to shine through with each pose. When you leave you will see how connected to your body you will feel and how that gives you the confidence to stand tall. These poses will leave you feeling powerful allowing you to embrace your inner strength and celebrate your unique beauty.

As you pose for the camera during your session know that sometimes the poses feel awkward or a bit silly, but in that you will see that when you allow yourself to step out of your comfort zone and not worry about what others think you are able to shine your best.

Remember that the whole point of a glamour photoshoot is to show you all the parts of yourself you do not see. That your idea of perfect might be unattainable because you spend too much time focusing on what you see as flaws. Think about the people you wish you could be like, imagine if you looked at them the same way you looked at yourself, when given time to focus on what is wrong that is all we ever end up seeing. We want you to see the real you, the beautiful you. The one that shines when she is having fun, feeling sexy, and being confident. Let your Glamour Photoshoot change the way you see yourself.

Be ready to embrace your imperfections, celebrate your uniqueness, and allow yourself to be vulnerable in front of the lens. It’s in those raw moments that your true beauty shines brightest and you get to fall in love with yourself.
