Actually, this is something I had really wanted to do for a long time, but never had the confidence. I never knew how to pose and I didn’t have enough positive body image to interact well with the lens. I felt double stress about doing nude photos. However, Jim, Rose and Greg were very patient, extremely professional, and encouraging. They put me at ease and I quickly forgot about my nervousness. What I would recommend to overcome fears about posing is to talk to the photographers. Don’t sweat too much about whether or not you look good in front of the camera. The photographers will let you know what looks best, and you’ll learn as you go. – A.P.
Divine Beauty Photography was more than a wonderful experience, it was a moment of truth and a moment to embrace. Rose, Jim and Greg are truly amazing. They make you feel so comfortable and they have the eyes to capture inner and outer beauty. They all hold different views with the same outcome. Working with them brought out the best of me and it allowed me to be just that, me!! In the moment to be free with oneself, what we all tend to conceal, Rose, Jim and Greg reveal truth to ourselves. For us to learn to embrace our individual beauty is the most ultimate freedom. When I first saw my photos I felt proud, comfortable and fell in love with myself all over again. To be able to love yourself opens doors for others to love you the same. My photos captured moments of happiness, laughter and sensuality…..I LOVE THEM!!!!! Thank you Divine Beauty Photography for the greatest opportunity of my life!! – D.R.
I’ve never really thought about being nude in front of a camera as big leap, but I suppose it’s because I’ve always been in front of people I know and trust behind those cameras. I can wax philosophic about what a great experience it is, and how empowering the whole experience is – and it is! But if someone is nervous or anxious about doing this kind of photo shoot – just think of it as a snap in time. Use the experience to appreciate where you are, as a baseline to where you want to be, or a memory of where you were. It’s a chance to embrace you for being you. Whether it’s a maternity or a portrait, it will be something you will be glad you did, even it’s just to say you did it once. A.F.
“Some may say controversial or scandalous. Others may say improper or indecent. And maybe I am biased. But all I can ever look at my photos and say is, “beautiful.” Jim and Rose were able to capture a moment in time that can only be described by that word…beautiful. A woman sensing her inner courage, finding her self-confidence, and suddenly feeling truly stunning. My “Red” moment will be a perpetual reminder that no matter what else is happening in my life, that woman is inside me, and for that gift, from Jim and Rose, I am eternally blessed and grateful. Thank you for helping me find my Divine Beauty.” E.K.
