Happy New Year!
2017 was a year of changes for me and for JLReis Photography. I know the people I want to reach and what I want to do with my business, it’s never changed since May 1, 2014, the official opening day of my first studio.
It’s my goal to make just ONE woman see their own, real beauty – just one, EVERY CHANCE I GET. I want to muffle the voices in her head that tells her she’s not beautiful, not worthy, not enough. If I can do that for that ONE woman, I’ll have met my goal.
The stories I’ve heard the past year, the sessions I’ve done, helped me see that women – ALL WOMEN – feel the same, no matter their age, shape or dress size. I know because I’ve felt, and sometimes to continue to feel, the same way.
But … no matter what life we live, no matter where we live, no matter what kind of work we do, whether we’re married or single, twenty years old or eighty, women are fucking forces of nature.
We face the shittiest days of our lives and we manage to get through – and help our loved ones through. We make shit HAPPEN. We are so much more than we allow ourselves to believe.
I am humbled by the stories you’ve shared with me … for you to open up to me and tell me your thought and fears and trust me to keep them means the world to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Happy new year to all of us, I can’t wait to see what we do and become in 2018!
