The Glow Within
While staying up late to watch the most recent Academy Awards, I marveled at the glamour and prestige that graced the red carpet.
So many stunning gowns. So much admiration from outside looking in. Yes, of course, the celebrities were all wearing customized gowns and had personal stylists create their looks, but still, the jaw dropping splendor seen everywhere I glanced could only reflect the inner beauty I gazed upon. Ah, the perfection of youth is so gloriously made manifest at the Oscars.
I find this same dynamic during shoots at the studio. Many of our New Jersey boudoir photography clients prepare for shoots, determining outfits and special looks. Perhaps more time at the gym or a new skin care regime help them feel even more radiant.
No matter what is done to enhance the natural aura of each client, I find myself amazed at how beautiful every woman truly is. No matter what stage of life she is in, her femininity is discovered during our shoot together. This is particularly true with some of my younger clients, who still have yet to realize how close to perfect their physical features are simply because of their youth.
Emily, age 26, reminds me of a delicate sprite. Her blonde silky hair, porcelain skin and prominent, piercing eyes fluttered every version of gorgeous that could be imagined.
Wearing a lovely lace garment which complemented her skin and eyes, she was stunning. All the essence of innocence and radiance were contained in her glances. When she slipped into a grand tulle skirt, her spirit was light and playful. Everything about Emily seemed to show that she was enjoying being a young woman… but is still a girl at heart. And her images will always remind her of this very fact.
Emily, thank you for reminding us that we all still have this glow within us. We don’t need to be on a red carpet to feel worthy.
Here is what Emily had to say about her time with us.
“My experience at Je Revele was absolutely wonderful. I can’t say enough good things about Michelle & Jessica. They both made me feel so comfortable and helped me really enjoy the whole experience.
I felt amazing during the shoot. I wanted a real classic look and Michelle nailed it! I totally felt like Marilyn Monroe for the day!
I’ll always love these pictures and remember the shoot. It will forever be one of the highlights of my 20′s and I’m so thrilled to be able to share my photos for the rest of my life with all the people I love. Especially my boyfriend, he loves them.
I loved the exhilarating feeling I got being in front of the camera. It was such a great day and I can’t thank everyone at Je Revele enough for creating such a special memory for me!”
It was such a pleasure meeting Emily. I’m so glad she found us!
