We had the honor of working with Jamie twice now at Vavoom and each time she always leaves us in awe of what an amazing woman she is and we of course aspire to be like her! She made us realize that it's ok to make time for yourself to help you be the best version of yourself, remember that kittens. ;) Check out Jamie's Vavoom experience below:
I had been to Vavoom once before, so it was absolutely what I remembered and expected. However, just like the first time I went to Vavoom, it was more than I expected. The women there are lovely and personable. Heather is kind and caring, and seems to go out of her way to make her clients comfortable and ensure they get the experience and shots they were looking/hoping for.
After a pretty rocky holiday season, it was so good to get treated with this shoot. A family friend and I went out that same night. I felt good and I looked good. I told my family friend that 'the photos felt like me.' That sentiment was enforced once I saw the photos. They just felt like me. They helped pamper me, and give me a little boost of my confidence back.
I would say that the experience and images help reinforce the image of myself that I have. Strong, sexy, confidence, classy, happy, sassy, flirty, loving, and so much more. As I once heard it put, 'you helped me show on the outside (to other people), how I see myself.' I couldn't really have put it better myself.
Being a mother, you pretty much constantly discover new things about yourself, whether it be your patience level, or lack there of; or your tolerance lever, or lack there of. Yet, I would say that one thing in particular that I've discovered about myself recently, and not so recently, that I pretty much continue to re-discover about myself, is that it's ok to value yourself and be a little selfish. As my mom has told me repeatedly, 'you are more than just a mother.' This statement changed my entire mentality regarding motherhood, and thus my general every day life. It helped and continues to help me know that it is okay to treat yourself, and to pamper yourself, and that there is great value in doing so. For you and your child. Of course, all things in moderation.
