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 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

2020: Fear

2020: Fear

Fear

Have you ever had an idea… and then got really scared of it?  Scared of how will you get it all done, how will you let go to ask for help, what if it’s a total flop.

Then.. you decide to just ignore it. Set it aside and find other things to focus on.  No?  Well, you better just scroll on to the next story then.

Me… I struggle with this all.the.time.  ALL the time.

I have these really great ideas, I obsess over them, plan them out, do my research, maybe even kinda start going down the path with it.  Then… somewhere in the middle of it, I get overwhelmed, I get scared, I let the voices on the inside… get louder than anything.

Gosh those voices can be obnoxious and hateful.

Fun fact about me, I like to read and listen to podcasts.  I’m a constantly soaking up information.  Fear, however, is one thing I have not learned how to overcome.  Some days, I just pretend to be an ostrich and put my head in the sand and ignore it… and some days I sit in a place of fear and struggle to find my way out.   I have yet to find that “trick” that one way to overcome it.  My goal every day is to be a better person.  Have you ever really stopped to think about what all that means?

For me, it means:

I want to be kinder than I was the day I lost my temper.

I want to be a better business person than I was last week.

I want to get organized and stay organized.

I want to be a better friend.

I want to not get so lost in the “work”.

I want to not live in fear of failing.

Fear… When it comes down to the nuts and bolts of it, I fear failing.  I fear disappointing those who have believed in me.  I fear hurting someone because of my words or actions.

All of these things… I do often.  So, I try each day to be better.

When my wife says that I’m being short with my words or tone, I try to make a conscious effort to speak with a calm voice and not speak before thinking.  It doesn’t always work that way… but I try.  I try not to fail her. I try not to fail my marriage.

So many people tell me “I don’t know how you do it all”.  Let me be very honest with you.  I can’t do it all.  I fail almost daily at something in my juggling act.  However, I try to have ownership of what I am doing, or not doing, and I try to be better each and every day. I choose every day not to dwell on fear and negativity.  Some days that means avoiding… however, I try.  I get up each day and try. Try to be kinder, a better business owner, a better wife, more organized, a better friend, a better human.

Here is what I do know.  Fear keeps us from moving forward.  Fear causes more anxiety and stress.  So I have made a promise to myself to write down all the steps to move forward and to tackle them one at a time.  I trust the knowledge and believe that I was made for more than fear.  I believe that we each have something bigger we are meant to do.  I fight for each of my clients to find their worth and their value when I photograph them.  I fight this same fight for myself.

In case you didn’t know it, I will fight for you as well.

How do you work thru your fears?

xoxo

Brooke

I’ve been fortunate enough to have Marnie as a repeat client.  She truly understands the importance and value of making sure she has current head shots.  I absolutely love working with her, because if you know her… you know she has a personality and a smile that just makes the room a little lighter.  Marnie was recently promoted to VP, DFW Sales Manager for WFG National Title Insurance Company.  I really am not sure they know what a great human they have now.  Marnie has so much experience in the Title industry, but more importantly, her passion for connecting with people is what sets her apart.  While she has always been the one to find business… now she is leading the area and helping others grow.  I absolutely cannot wait to see how she soars in this position.

I am now in management for a title insurance company. I recruit and hire, and manage the business development managers. What makes me unique is that I am passionate about my company and the people that I work with. I truly love people and I believe that makes a huge difference in the lives of others.

I work with lenders, and real estate agents, and now my clients are my employees, My ideal client is someone who is passionate about life as I am.

Rejection Proof by Jia Jiang I learned that people may reject what I am asking, but aren’t rejecting me as a person.

Lipstick Ha!

Pray, and meditate

Love everyone, we aren’t guaranteed tomorrow. Don’t ever give up on yourself, you can do anything that you want to do.

Spend time with my kids, family, and my boyfriend and friends. Fun is doing anything with any of them.
