We interrupt our 14 Night Cruise Blog Marathon to introduce to you a new line of Portrait Experiences I am over-the-moon excited to now offer. It all started in Virginia when we began preparing to move to Germany. It always seems that with me, when things are insane, I come up with random big and lofty ideas. This one was no different. 😉 So there I sat in our hotel room writing all my thoughts down.
I was excited to get to work with this idea…and now that I am approved as a Home Based Business here in Germany (holla!), I am excited to do something a little extra special for my clients. One of the new session experiences available caters to offering a unique experience to expecting Mothers, and this 2 minute video is a peak at what it is all about!
We had a blast pampering Codie, and I am unbelievably excited and thankful to have heard that she enjoyed it tremendously also. There is no greater reward for me in this business than when a client says she “felt like a princess” and cried her way through the video highlight reel! This is what it is all about for me.
Here is what Codie thought –
“I was unbelievably nervous and tired for this session. Despite, the “glow” us pregnant women supposedly have, I hadn’t felt picture worthy for the past months. But I regretted not having maternity photos with my first, so I started my research on photographers in the area and I am unbelievably happy that I decided to go with Brittany. First let me say, she had cake. Second, I was pampered by two very sweet and talented women. We talked, laughed, and in no time, I was transformed. No more, bags under my eyes and my hair was actually down and styled. I felt beautiful. I was picture worthy for the first time in a long time. The end result was amazing. My husband actually looked good in more than one picture (he’s beautiful, but takes pictures like Chandler from “Friends”). Brittany caught the moments of my son being sweet and us acting like we normally would, along with the beautifully posed pictures. As soon as my husband recovers from being forced to take these pictures, we will definitely be using B. Weiss Photography again.” – Codie

I am not yet a Mom, so….this idea essentially came from talking with sweet friends and family without them knowing.
Essentially, this is taking a little twist to the everyday maternity session. There is no denying the beauty of carrying your child and the excitement and glow it seems to give expecting mothers. However, I hear often about some of the not-so-glorious occurrences that accompany carrying that precious little person. Aches, nausea, cravings, difficulty sleeping comfortably, loss of ability to see your toes, stretch marks, swelling, lack of energy, hormones, crazy emotions, the inevitable feeling of outgrowing even your fat pants while trying to remind yourself that this does not mean what it usually means…however this is hard sometimes because of those hormones and crazy emotions…ahhh! And, as if that weren’t enough, if you already have a child or children running through your house, this 9 months not only seems to fly by…but getting dolled up or just dressed and out the door on time can be a feat. Nevertheless, you will look back on this time in your life as some of the best moments you’ve lived. Because… YOU, and only you – carried, protected, cared for, sang to, prayed for, and loved this tiny little being every moment, every time they kicked or turned you were reminded of this little person stealing your heart more and more from the time you heard a heartbeat all the way up until you could look into their beautiful bright eyes. Carrying your baby is the start of one of the most important roles in your life – the role of being a Momma.
So I want to offer an opportunity for expecting Moms to celebrate this part of life in the best way possible. I want each Mom to remember that, despite any of those crazy emotions or physical symptoms or struggles that she may encounter, she was beautiful, and glowing with excitement and anticipation.
This is why our BRAVE + Beautiful BELLIES sessions include Professional Hair and Makeup along with my personal assistance to help with the overwhelming parts of having portraits taken so that you feel and look your best with less stress! This is a precious time in your life – let us help you remember it that way!
In addition to these unique Maternity Sessions, the entire idea to offer
portrait sessions was inspired by my heart to help every woman see the sexy and confident wife she was created to be. We see bad photos of ourselves every day. It’s a healthy dose of reality that keeps us humble. But if bad lighting and angles are all we see, we’ll never know, recognize, and be confident in the natural beauty we do have. I want every woman to see that she can look and feel beautiful if she allows herself to. Making the time to be pampered with beautiful hair and makeup and have a portrait taken featuring your most beautiful and unique features can help bring into proper proportion the often warped evaluation that you may have when comparing yourself to the Covergirl and help you be more determined to live more confidently as a wife and woman in this world. The session ranges between Beauty to Boudoir and is a gift every girl should have for herself and her husband. I am currently looking for 3 lucky models to test this newly offered experience and see what it is like to feel BRAVE + Beautiful. 🙂
