Diary

Nicole's journey with Voulez Vous began in 2016 through Lindsey House, an organization dedicated to empowering families on their journey to independence. I was working on a project there, photographing women as they reached important milestones in their journey towards a better life. Nicole was working with the women of Lindsey House and we quickly bonded over a mutual love for helping others rediscover their own light.

More and more often, women come to me simply because they wish to invest in their personal journey to self. That was the case with Caroline; She did this photoshoot as a gift to herself. Caroline's photoshoot is full of deep shadows and striking silhouettes. She described her style as casual yet chic, making for a collection of timelessly elegant portraits.

"There are not many times I can get Mr. dressed up just. for. photographs. He’s shy and reserved and not a fan of attention. However, getting engaged is a big deal and like everyone else we wanted to document the beginning of what would be our marriage story. We loosened up with a bourbon and champagne and then the clicking started, it was so easy. Lana captured our authentic laughter and love, Mark’s stoic nature and my silliness. Neither of us is a big fan of the lovey-dovey photos so Voulez Vous is the obvious choice. No cheesy hand hearts, just beautiful portraits documenting our next chapter. I’ll cherish our best dressed photos for the rest of our life. It’ll be fun to say in 60 years, see Nana and Pop were sexy once too."

I grew up in a poor home, raised for the most part by my single mother. The church sponsored my sisters and I to attend a private religious school where we were expected to dress up for class every single day.My schools' standard of what looked 'presentable' wound up shaping my own standards for dressing in every-day life. I loved the way I felt when I dressed up for the day versus how I felt when I did not.I felt more confident, prepared, and motivated. Over the years, I've continued this tradition of dressing up, no matter the day. Especially on days when I'm not feeling my best.

Recently, I was rummaging through old files when I came across an article I saved in 2019 titled, "Come As You Are." I remembered saving this gem because it spoke me, as I'm sure it did many others, of the heavy burden of unrealistic beauty standards we women carry around. We hear new outlooks on body positivity all the time, but what stood out to me in this message wasn't the typical 'love yourself' mantra, it was the idea that we are actually losing time and productive energy to worrying about the way we look. This is time and precious energy spent loathing the bodies that serve us. These are not hours men accommodate for in their daily life. Why should we? So I wrote a list for you— A list of ways you can snap out of negative self-talk and tap into a more fulfilled and fired up energy to spend on making memories and impact where it actually matters most to you.

Once I got to college I signed up and went to US Marine Corps Officer Candidate School later turning down my commission in the military to study abroad in Estonia and Russia...

Congrats to Benita! And to strong vibrant women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them. Benita won a complimentary photoshoot during a Voulez Vous Zoom party last year! Her photos really display the fun, spunky energy that Benita brought into the studio. Benita spent many years filling the role of head of the household for her family. As a result, she fell out of touch with her feminine nature. Our goal for Benita's photoshoot was to highlight her "hidden feminine side" so these images would serve as a reminder of her true womanly self. I hope Benita looks at these images and feels just as bold and beautiful as she looks!

The first thing I noticed about Leslie was her soft, peaceful voice. She had a calm and confident demeanor. You can't help but be drawn to a person like that.Leslie came to me with a clear vision for her photoshoot. She had a lot of ideas, but her conviction and enthusiasm sparked my inspiration and we managed to do it all - Paint splattering, feathers, floral headdresses, abstract strip lighting, neon gel lighting and more. Ask and you shall receive, as I always say!Leslie's presence reminded me that sometimes the most attractive thing you can be is compassionate and self-assured.Meeting someone so calm and confident prompted me to ask, "What are we scared of? So what of our insecurities. Who does it matter to anyway?"We get so caught up in how others physically see us that we forget- it's how we make people feel that draws them in. The people who love you will always love you, whether you've gained a few pounds, wrinkles, or whatever else you feel insecure about at times.So what are you scared of? Embrace the thing that makes you shine and flaunt it with calm, radiant confidence!

I'm so happy to share this decadent photoshoot with Shannon Rich!Shannon is an outstanding woman in business. She came to Voulez Vous for branding photos as she gears up to launch an empowering service for women. I have been so inspired by her dedication to advocating for women to be "at the table". Her visionary goal is to make sure future generations of women are in every room where decisions are made. I loved the bold bits of personality captured throughout her images. Shannon wins the award, hands down, for "Voulez Vous client showing up with the biggest wardrobe." She showed up to the studio with an entire truck load! If this indicates the level of preparation Shannon brings to the table.. I have no doubt that she is on her way to changing the future for women's representation in the work place.
