2020: Do you stand out?

2020: Do you stand out?

Have you ever really sat down and really thought about your why? Your reason for doing the job you do every day? Whether you work a corporate job for someone else, or you are an entrepreneur and building a business. Why do you do what you do? What is it that makes what you do important?  What is it about you that makes you stand out?

I can’t really answer those questions for you… but I can share with you my why. I can tell you why I do the things I do and what my purpose is.

I can think way back in my little life and tell you that my purpose was always to help others. When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a pediatric physical therapist. I didn’t want to work with grownups because they tend to see defeat and lack the ability to believe in the impossible. Today, I want to help people grow their self confidence and rediscover their version of beautiful. I want to help others see the possibilities are truly within them and they just have to be strong enough to grab ahold of it and run.

So, let’s talk a little bit about this in a work related conversation. Think about your industry. Is it over saturated? Does it feel as though there are SO many people doing the same thing you are doing? What is it that sets you apart and makes you stand out from those hustling for the same customers?

I can only talk to you in photography terms.. but feel free to insert your industry into the same conversation.

For me as a photographer… I can’t say I’m the best. I’m far from it…SO very far from the best. However, let’s face it, you can take some really killer pictures with a phone now. What makes me stand out is… well, it’s me. it’s what I bring to the table. I photograph men and women in all of the genres I shoot, but what where I thrive… that’s photographing women. I want to photograph women and help them see past their body image issues and insecurities.

Let’s take high school seniors… gosh I can’t imagine growing into my own skin and trying to figure out who I am with all the things in social media flying at them. Oh. Wait. yes I can. I totally get it. I look at at women on instagram, and think “i wish my hair looked like that, I wish my stomach wasn’t near as squishy as it is, I wish that my skin looked as flawless as hers.” I get it girl. So, when I talk to my senior clients and their parents, I want them to know that I see them. I hear them. I want to show them just how beautiful they are without all the extra editing and “stuff”. I want each girl to get her hair and makeup done and still feel like herself. I want her to love her experience and her images and get a big ol’ cheesy smile each time she sees her images pop up somewhere.

My headshot clients…. these ladies are hustling. They are trying to prove to the world, their friends, and themselves that they are going to make it and they are going to take over the world…. but first, they just need to get the dreaded headshot done. I want my clients to sit and talk with me, tell me about their business. Tell me about their dreams. I want them to relax just enough to let that drive and passion shine thru their eyes.

My boudoir ladies… oh these ladies will forever be my passion. Boudoir is so much more than sexy images, so much more than stripping down and revealing your body. It’s about learning and rediscovering what makes you beautiful and what makes you stand out to the world. Boudoir to me, is about remembering that you are so much more than “just a mom, or a kid taxi driver, or just a hard worker… I want to show each of my boudoir clients that they are worthy of feeling beautiful. They are worthy of doing something to feed their soul and remember how incredible they truly are.

So….my why? Why do I do what i do and how do I stand out amongst a sea of other photographers… I want to help break down someone’s barriers, insecurities, show them that having your picture taken isn’t as scary as you think it might be, because on the other side of it… you might just find you are more than you believed.

Tell me, what is your why? Why do you get up each day and hustle to grow your business? Why do you get up each day and go to work?

I was so lucky to be able to photograph Allison.  It was such an honor to watch her transform and dance around downtown in her beautiful dress. My hope is that she felt like a princess during her session.

 Another fun thing we ask our seniors is, “What is one fun fact about you that people may not know?” Allison answered “I have double jointed elbows.” Her fun personality is definitely noticed.

I was so blessed to have the opportunity to create new head shots for The Athena Society of Burleson. I had the opportunity a few years ago, and it’s always wonderful to meet up with these incredible ladies.  Each of these ladies have been recognized for the community service and leadership in the community.  If you have ever had the privilege to meet any of them, you will understand that it is well deserved.

Originally formed in 2003, The ATHENA Society of Burleson is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose membership consists of women in the Burleson area who have received the ATHENA Leadership Award. What started as individual women being recognized for their community service and leadership has grown into an organization that is well respected by our community in being a leader in philanthropy and hard work.  The mission from their website reads as this: “Our mission is to assist women in realizing their full leadership potential, to participate in the community by contributing time and energy to improve the quality of life for others, and to serve ethically, with dignity, grace and sensitivity.

To meet our mission, the ATHENAs actively seek ways to assist women and provide services for families dealing with cancer.

Some of the ATHENAs have assisted by sharing work place knowledge on various topics, and by providing internships where women can practice their newly learned skills.”

Head Shot & Branding Photography with Beautiful Evolutions

Head Shots… does just the name of it make you cringe?  There are not many people that actually look forward to getting their head shots done.  However, with the right photographer… it should be an easy process.  My goal before every session is to understand what your business is, what you want out of your head shots, what type of message you want to send to your potential clients.  These things all play a factor in a successful head shot session.  When you book a head shot or branding session with me, we will dig in a little bit so that we get you more than “just one decent picture”.  I want you to really love your images and USE them.  You are paying for a session… you should get the most out of them!  Want a little more info?  You can head over to the portfolio page here –> Head Shot Portfolio or you can click the button below to get the pricing details and some email info.

Head Shot sessions will forever be my favorite.  It’s usually a pretty quick session and I know, when it’s all said and done, this lady is going to elevate her brand.  Brande is a gorgeous woman in the residential real estate industry.  I was excited to meet her and learn a little more about her.  She was super easy to photograph and I love seeing clients understand the value of having up to date and modern headshots.  Your first connection to a potential client… is from the image you present.

I’m a Realtor in the DFW area and I pride myself on honesty and tenacity. I work diligently for all of my clients and am honest about the good and the bad throughout the transaction so there are no surprises.

I love working with first time home buyers because they usually don’t know where to start with the home buying process and it can be very overwhelming! I try to educated them and walk them through every step and in the end when I get to see them move into their first home, there is no better feeling!

Coffee…it gets me going!

I am very focused on my health and I try to workout 4 times a week and eat clean the majority of the time. It is a stress reliever and it keeps my energy up!

Do you ever wonder why someone books a boudoir session?  I do.  I always wonder what the motivating factor is behind their decision.  I know, that after its all said and done, they are NEVER disappointed.  I do however, wonder what causes someone to stop wishing… and take that leap.  Miss R, was one that I was curious as to why she was booking her session.  She’s a photographer as well, so that always makes me a little extra curious.  However, it also reminds me, that we all have our own strengths… and I hope that one of mine, is that I help women feel comfortable enough to book a session and empowered enough to celebrate that session.

Miss. R booked her session for her wedding anniversary. It was a milestone anniversary… and I have a feeling – she may have a tough time topping this years’ gift.  She’s a beautiful woman to begin with – but isn’t it funny, how most of the time as women – we just don’t see it.  She is a mom, a wife, a little bit of everything… and it was my honor to help her see what the rest of the world sees.  She was able to set aside the crazy chaos of the world for a few hours with me… and in return – I gave her back the woman she had forgotten about.

Miss. R, you are a stunning woman.  Congratulations on your anniversary and here is to many more.

Thank you for taking a leap and booking your session.  My hope is that you never forget to celebrate yourself and the love that surrounds you.

Boudoir Photography with Beautiful Evolutions

Boudoir Sessions are almost always booked as a gift for someone else.  It’s a good “reason” to do a session and maybe not feel so selfish and frivolous.  However, what if one day.. everything was about you?  What if, just for one day, you didn’t have to focus on what everyone else in your world needed?  A boudoir session with me, Brooke, is a day to find the woman that you may have forgotten about.  I will guide you thru each step of the process.  We bring in someone to do your hair and makeup.  I walk you thru ever single pose and the full experience.  You can see some of our other boudoir work here.  Girl! I know it’s a scary thing sometimes to step outside of your box.  What I want you to remember… because I know you are contemplating it… is that you are worth it.  You are worth being pampered and having BEAUTIFUL images and portraits of yourself.  They can be as “sexy” as you want them to be.  My biggest goal… is that you walk away from your session seeing yourself thru someone else’s eyes and that you truly are remarkable.

 

all my love

Brooke
