Wife. Mother, Daughter. Friend. And I want to be your photographer.
I want to take the best portraits of you that you have ever seen. I know that you give your all to those you love. I know that you want the best for your family and friends, every single day. And I know it's hard to stop and take some time for yourself. The demands of modern life are never-ending and sometimes you are pulled in too many directions at once.
But you are extraordinary.
I know this. I know that no one sees the world quite like you. I know that you hold so many hopes and dreams deep inside you. I understand that as much as you love all the roles you play, you long to be seen. And listened to. And appreciated beyond measure.
Let me show you that person.
The one who is so very beautiful and confident and at home in herself. She's in there. And you need to search for her every once in a while and let her know you value her. It doesn't matter how much she weighs. Or if she has grey hair or wrinkles. She is beautiful down to her core. I can show that to you.
What do you see when you look in the mirror? I hope it goes beyond beauty. I hope what you see is that person who's worth it and deserves nothing less than the best, I hope that you see beyond the pain, I hope that you see the glory ahead of you, I hope that you see the strong woman who doesn't break to fail, but breaks to stand and I hope that you'll always remember that you need to love the person in the mirror first to make a change.
