Stepping in Front of the Lens - A Process to Loving Myself

Hi, my name's Erica and I'm addicted to clothes shopping. I didn't always use to be that way though. In fact, I used to dread shopping because I hated the way I looked when I tried on clothes. I still feel that way at times...so when I find that perfect outfit that makes me look and feel amazing, there's this impulse for me to buy it. It becomes a mission for me to seek out clothes that make me feel that way. This dress was one of them. One of the best pieces of advice I can give you is to find an outfit that gives you that feeling, and wear it to a photo session. There's nothing more attractive than someone who feels confidant and beautiful. Having images to remember that feeling is icing on the cake. I want my clients to walk away with that same experience. I want them to see their images and have them feel more beautiful than they already are. I believe every girl deserves this experience, because I know how hard we can be on ourselves.

Thank you to my wonderful fiance who helped take these photographs of me and capture me the way he describes me every day..."gorgeous".
