'm Love. The photographer and bad ass business owner here at Grá Intimate Portraiture. I'm a feminist, a mom, and an all-around quirky gal.
I used to think I was as sexy as a wet Pomeranian in my daily life. I would look in the mirror and think, eh, I'm "settle cute". Then one day, when I was fucking fed-up with how mean I was to myself, I curled my hair, set up my camera, and decided to put my money where my mouth was. I finally took those self portraits I kept putting off.
When I saw my images, I was amazed! I was transformed from meh to hell yeah! That session really helped me open my eyes to the woman that I am. The woman I couldn't see because of social standards, bad mirror angles and self-doubt. Now, I walk past my images hanging in my husband's man cave, and I give that woman a salute. Because she's living her best life. And that's what I want to do for every woman. EVERYWHERE.
Plus, we get to say a big "Fuck You" to beauty standards, and redefine what sexy really is.
Sexy is so much more than a outfit you put on, or a good hair day. It's not a specific size or shape. Sexy is a state of mind. Sexy can be found in stilettos and in sweat pants. And that's what these sessions are for, to help you find your sexy. To shake you up a little bit, to get you out of your comfort zone and to reveal a side of you that you may have thought long dead.
Sexy is powerful.
Sexy is loving yourself just the way you are.
hotographing womxn is an essential part of who I am. It is important to me to show my clients exactly how stunning they truly are.
This session has given me a feeling that has carried me and lifted me up - I am bad ass, I am sexy, I am beautiful.
when I got there, Love gave me a huge hug. I felt better instantly. Love has such a calming presence around her and in the studio.
love has helped me finish my self-love journey. So much so that I have had 7 sessions, big and small!
