Just because. This phrase is so whimsical and spontaneous. To do something for yourself for no other reason than the fact that you want to. This is the philosophy we should have about pretty much everything in our lives! Do it because it will make you happy and make you feel good.
This gorgeous session by Britni Dean Photography is giving us all the cozy autumn feels, especially now that November has officially kick started! What we love most though, is what she had to say about her process behind the shoot.
"What most inspired me most during this session was that this beautiful friend of mine was taking these photos simply for herself. It's not often that you get to help do a friends makeup, get her dressed down and see the magic unfold. My biggest focus was to just document Kyrstan's spirit...the part of her that is mysterious, full of wanderlust and to show her the beautiful woman she truly is. We woke up bright and early on a crisp autumn morning for her session and even though it was cold outside the house, it was cozy and relaxed in the bedroom. I wanted Kyrstan to feel relaxed and sexy, too! We wanted to keep the session simple, understated and to keep the focus on her favorite features rather than lots of different outfits or props. I am truly so thrilled with how these images came back. Shooting on film has allowed me to slow down enough during sessions of all kinds, so that I can be there in the moment to capture not just what is is front of my eyes, but to capture the story that is unfolding. Kyrstan's story is one of wanderlust, self-fulfillment, adventure, and finding peace in the "now." What a beautiful woman she is and what a beautiful story she tells."
Now, as if her beautiful words weren't enough, her sweet client, Kyrstan, offered some words of advice to all you lovely ladies out there, still unsure about whether you are ready to do your own session!
"I would tell other women just to do it. It’s okay to be nervous, scared, embarrassed, awkward... but just do it. This life is short, and not meant to be lived always wishing. Just do it. Taking Boudoir or Romantic Portraits is a freeing experience. It’s personal growth and becoming comfortable with you and your body. Just go for it."
Just do it, ladies!
