Facing and Beating my Anxiety

A week ago I was winging my way across the ocean back to normal life.
I missed my family, but at the same time enjoyed time for myself.
I got to be Carley for a week and learn more about myself than I ever thought I could.
For a few days I wasn’t someones Mum or wife or daughter. I was me. Free to explore the world without having to check in or organise others.
Since returning home I have found I appreciate my other roles better thanks to this experience.

There are no words to describe what I have gained from The Portrait Masters Conference. Living in a small town it is easy to feel isolated and tend to stick to my comfort zone. Doing this trip to Los Angeles/Palm Springs/Indian Wells it made me step outside my comfort level. I had to face my anxieties head on to grow to the next level I want to reach and face them I did!
I feel refreshed and full to the brim with ideas and enthusiasm for a job that I truly love.

“What you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe and enthusiastically act upon must inevitably come to pass”

Dark and Daring Outdoor Bath Session {Maclean Boudoir Photographer}

Here is a look at Miss T’sĀ Outdoor Bath Session.

This was done late in the evening, with a darker edge. She went the full experience with false eyelashes, a deep colour lip and teemed it with a beautiful selection of Peonies.

She had been wanting to have a photo shoot for herself for ages but never stopped and made herself make time.

Miss T is a mummy of 2. She barely has time to wear make up or dress up and, like many of us, isn’t comfortable with her ‘mummy tummy’.

Once she saw her transformation she was amazed at how sexy she felt in the lace slip. It covered what she wanted to minimise and showed just enough to feel special.

Now she has beautiful images to remind her every day that she is freakin amazing
