I read this exact phrase in an article: "women don't exist in portraits". BOOM. 100% true! Women are fantastic at scheduling portraits and other self-care things for other people, making sure everyone is taken care of, that they get put on the back burner until there's no more room on the stove!
Ladies, we NEED to take the time to completely love on ourselves! Our girls are growing up in this fabulous age of nouveau-feminism and confidence, but what example are we giving them? Our strength and beauty needs to be shown off to everyone!
Let's not just exist, but take center stage! Show off and revel in the amazing person that we've become through years of self-discovery, trials, and coming out on top! This blog post I wrote a while back pretty much says it all!
They say a picture says a thousand words. The image above only needs to say one: unapologetic. That describes one of my favorite clients, Bethany, to a T! A fierce mama and businesswoman, she embodies unapologetic. She is fierce, loves on herself, knows she is beautiful, doesn't deny herself what she wants, and somehow manages to fit in all the roles of mother, wife, friend, leader, boss, and so many more I can't even name! This gorgeous girl treated herself to an Allure session to celebrate all that she's become in life, and we love her for it!
Look at this vibrant lady! Bethany came in with her favorite gowns, wanting another chance to wear them and feel beautiful in them (how many times have you bought something and only worn it ONCE??). What better opportunity to show off that perfect dress that you hunted for for hours, maybe days, just to wear for an evening? Now, Bethany can look back on her gorgeous images from her heirloom folio box and think "yep, THIS is me!" over and over again!
"...but I don't NEED it". Really? You don't need a day to celebrate you, to get glam for no reason other than that you want to, to capture your beauty to look back on during a sweatpants day? I beg to differ! Unnecessary doesn't mean we don't need it!
Yes, mama! This life is beautiful and made to show off! We absolutely loved the spirit and joy Bethany brought to her session! No shame, no regrets, nothing but celebration!
Are you with us? Showing off the confidence and beauty of women from top to bottom, covered and bare! We absolutely love what we do, and want you to be completely ready to take the plunge!
Now that you've seen some of our finished work, ready to take a peek behind the curtain? Our bi-weekly newsletter features our studio news, sales, and behind-the-scenes posts that no one else sees! Sign up using the button below!
Hopefully by now we've banished all these thoughts of "unnecessary" and "frivolous". We need this!
Allure sessions are a great way to celebrate a certain point of your life. Hit the big 4-0? Yes! Have your first baby (or grandbaby)? Double yes! Just feel really good, and know that when you're 80 certain body parts will NOT be where they are now? SO MUCH YES!
So how do we look back on those moments? most Allure clients go home with heirloom albums, our gorgeous folio boxes, or canvas gallery wraps to show off. You could be the next generation of the fantastic paintings that hung in people's parlors. Those ladies never looked like they could have updated the car with that money, and neither should you!
We offer to our Allure clients both a-la-carte and package products. Allure prints start at $275.
Congratulations! You're now a JDP Allure professional! You know all the basics about our most glamorous line! The only thing left to do is experience it for yourself!
At your pre-session consultation, you get to meet Jenn and Megan, see our studio, and plan your custom session. We go over your style guide, outfits, session focus, and your story to make sure your Allure session is 100% unique to you. It's so important to us that you feel comfortable on your session date, and that includes having every one of your questions answered, being able to feel the products you'll be ordering, and get hyped for your session.
Woo-hoo! Your session is the day we've been planning! You get pampered with professional hair and makeup, fun music, and your very favorite outfits (or lack thereof!) with the most beautiful lighting and posing! Lock the door and bring out the champagne, it's time for an Allure session!!
The anticipation is driving us crazy! We love showing our clients their final images in a grand reveal! Be ready to see yourself how you've never seen yourself before! We guide you through the process of creating a custom order to best fit your needs. As soon as your products are in from our pro labs, we send them home with you to show off to everyone, or just a few very important eyes!
You've made it all the way to the bottom! We hope we've done a great job of explaining why our Allure line is so special, and why YOU need to have this experience for yourself! Just fill out this contact form below and we'll get back to you ASAP! We can't wait to hear from you!
