After I had two kids, and felt horrid about myself, I knew that other women had to feel the same way. I started to wonder what I could do to make myself and others feel better about who they were right now, at this point in their life.
Slowly, it became clear that all women, no matter what stage of life they are in, have things they hate about themselves. Maybe it’s their stomach, their legs, or even their hair. If I could take that thing they hate, and make a beautiful image, hopefully they would see how lovely they actually were.
Over time, and as I began to take images of women, I felt drawn to photographing “real” women. Women who had been around the block, have life scars, had children, were aging…the list could go on and on. And I know this woman, because I AM this woman. I don’t treat myself and I know there are so many out there that are exactly like me.
So what exactly is b.lovely? It’s a session that is all about that woman in your life that deserves to feel beautiful. That person that pours their heart and soul into their children, their job, or their marriage, but never takes the time to pamper themselves. With a b.lovely session, each woman get specialized attention from hairstylist and makeup artist team. Then a 1-2 hour beauty session with Briony. The session also comes with wardrobe consultation to help choose just the right clothing for the shoot. Depending on a client’s comfort level outfits can be chosen that are more modest and offer full coverage to more of a boudoir feel with classy lingerie.
Session cost is $250 and includes a wardrobe consultation, full makeover with professional stylists, a 1-2 hour session, fine detailed editing of the best images, and a 7 day password protected gallery for your viewing, and ala carte purchasing. There are no digital images or prints included in the session fee pricing. Prints start at $45 for an 8×10, digital images start at $105 for a single image. Be.lovely session clients typically invest between $700-$1200 in prints, books, and/or digital images. A minimum purchase of $250 is required for all ala carte purchases. Session fee due at booking.
