You’re Perfect the Way You Are

You’re perfect the way YOU are RIGHT NOW and life is good. Every now and then we all need a little reminder …

We’re women … women are complex creatures and we are very hard on ourselves. We do it all the time and not even science can give a true clarification as to why. No matter what the reason, women always think that if they could be “better” in one way or another they would be “happy”.  I myself am guilty of it here and here.  We as women  need to remember to think about all the good things we have going on, and think about all the things we’re blessed to have in our lives right now … today.  You have to love yourself  now, not 10 lbs from now. And we have to remember we can have anything we put our minds to. Last night I heard a song on the radio that reminded me how blessed I am today to have the experiences I’ve had and be where I am at this point in my life.  Everything is FINE and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Jennifer Lopez in Vouge – New York City Glamour Photographer

Jennifer Lopez is on the Cover of Vouge this month, and I am giddy with GLEEE! I don’t know why but Jenny from the Block is like my home girl (in my head). She’s gorgeous, she’s sexy, she’s fierce, she’s gorgeous … she’s gorgeous! Haha, yes I’m a groupie. I have to give JLo credit where credit is due. Jenny grew up in the Bronx and worked very hard to get where she is today. Even with all the recent turmoil in her personal life, she still finds time to look and feel good.

This brings me to a certain point … With everything most of us having going on in our personal daily lives, most of us if not ALL of us (women, girls, young, old, married, mother, divorced, grandmother etc) want to look and feel as beautiful as this. Why can’t we all have this glamorous experience? Hair, makeup, wardrobe and photos of ourselves looking beautiful? Mainstream media, and fashion has brainwashed women and young girls to think we can’t be this beautiful or this glamours if we’re not 5’11 and wear a size 2 dress. You don’t have to be famous, or even a model to attain it. All you need to find is the photographer with the eyes to see the beauty in you.  Whats stopping YOU from making it happen?

I’m very excited to open up a new project – in the works, this Spring! I really think you’ll like it too. 😉

50 and Fabulous || New York City Portait Photographer

Who says you can’t be fabulous at 50 ? This is Doreen. When I first spoke with Doreen, she told me she was throwing a 50 and fabulous birthday party to celebrate her big Five-O. Of course she wanted someone to photograph the celebration but even more important to her, she wanted a picture that made her feel like super model. Something she could hang in her house and feel proud of and most importantly, something she could look at every single day to remind her how amazing she felt at 50. Like a fine wine, right? There are two things we can learn here from Doreen and those are 1. Age is nothing but a number and 2. You’re only as old as you feel on the inside. Think young, feel young, be fabulous!

Plus Model Jasmine E. by J. Clynes Photography || Jasmine E. Photography || NYC Wedding Photographer

I’ve been pretty quiet the last couple weeks, but that’s because I’ve been a bit busy thinking about my 2012 and how I want the next year to go. So far, I have to say things are off to a great start! Coming into 2012 I decided it was really time to update my modeling portfolio. Just recently, I had a fun shoot with fashion photographer Justin Clynes of J Clynes Photography. Justin and I are kind of on the same journey …  Models with Cameras! We’re both represented by Click Model Management in New York, and we’ve both transitioned to photography after 5+ years in front of the camera. Although he’s mainly a head shot fashion photographer and I mainly photograph weddings I found that we both have the familiar struggle of trying to balance our work in front of and behind the camera, yet we both find work on each side of the camera wildly fulfilling for 100 different reasons.

It was a breath of fresh air working with Justin. Like, we were on the same page. He’s an amazing and talented artist, with a big spirit and a bright outlook on life. It was great to connect with him the way I did. Not all photographers are created equal, but shooting with photographers like Justin always reminds me of why I decided to pick up the camera in the first place. Justin helped me to find my inner beauty, again …

although I gained almost 20 lbs since my last portfolio photo shoot …

although I don’t work out 10 hours a week like I used to …

although my husband tells me I’m beautiful every single day …

and although despite being a model for over 6 years, lately I haven’t been feeling at all confident in myself …

Justin helped me find it all again. The experience has reminded me why I do what I do behind the lens. I want all my clients and couples to feel this very same way. I understand the power of a picture … the emotional power strong photographs hold. Not just for the person looking at the photograph, but for the person IN the photograph. This is me and I am “gorgeous, hot, beautiful, sexy” or whatever the case may be when you see yourself in a photograph you LOVE. The saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” is so true, in fact … a strong picture is worth way more than a thousand words, its Priceless. It takes a special kind of photographer to create this power in an image.

How do you think I did? One thing’s for sure, I’m ready for 2012 and I’m SO ready for the gym tonight!

Spending Time with Grandma on Valentine’s Day || Jasmine E. Photography || NYC Wedding Photographer

Happy Day AFTER Valentine’s Day!! Anyone have a chocolate hangover?? 😛

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re married, just fell in love or you’re single and ready to mingle, Valentine’s Day should be celebrated by everybody. Valentine’s Day is not just about chocolate and roses, its amount reminding the most important people in your life how much you love them. This was our first Valentine’s Day as husband and wife and Valentine’s day couldn’t have been MORE perfect. Aloysius and I spent Valentine’s Day with my Grandma. I love my grandmother … I just adore her. Grandma is 89 years old ….. Eighty-Nine! After Aloysius and I swapped cards, cupcakes and shared a glass of wine, we picked up my sister, Sapphire and drove over to Grandma’s for a Valentine’s Day Surprise! Grandma’s are simple … they enjoy the little things in life. Family and Hugs and lots of little kisses. My grandmother loves a good hug. We shared another bottle of wine (oh yes, we got grandma to have a sip), she served us her most notorious rice and beans and we enjoyed each other. Simple as that. I couldn’t ask for anything more on Valentine’s Day.

I’m so happy my Grandma was able to share in my wedding day. These images mean so much to me right now, but they will be absolutely priceless the day I show my future children who their grandmother was …

Yes, Grandma got her makeup done by Cari R. Duprey too!

I love her dearly.

My mother and my grandmother waiting before the ceremony …

 

I love the last  picture because it represents three generations of the women in our family together. My Grandmother with her daughter and grandchildren.

My mother to the far right, my younger sister Sapphire to the left … and of course our Grandma.

My wedding photographs were taken by my awesome photogra-friend: Katie Jane Photography
