“The kindest words my father said to me
Women like you drown oceans.”

One of the greatest feelings is when I conquer new things.
Whether they are just something I have always wanted to try, or if I had been scared to attempt it. This photo shoot, I simply had not attempted. I honestly never thought I would be able to. Never in a million years did I think someone I knew would let me.
Yet, here we are.
I’m not going to lie, Chelsey did amaaaazinngggg.
Cause I had no idea what I was doing or how they were going to turn out. I knew what I had pictured in my head more than likely wasn’t going to happen in real life but I was still hopeful. Honestly, 99% of the time I was just trying to make sure my ISO wasn’t too high. I didn’t want to lose a whole afternoon to too much noise.
But then I would snap shots that made me excited.
The ones where the light was hitting just right. Or the fierceness was just too much to handle.
As the time went on, I could tell she was getting more comfortable. (Even though it was so hot in that bathroom!!)
This was my very first “Bath Tub Water” session.. Or whatever you would call it.
And Chelsey was a trooper. There were a lot of laughs and a lot of sitting and staring. Was also a lot of lens changing. There was even a point where I wasn’t sure that any of the photos were going to be usable. But for my first try, I think I nailed it.
It helped to have such a beautiful subject.
I hope to offer an all around experience soon, because I really want to help people feel their best human. Too many of us struggle with body positivity and self love. I want to help.
Here are a few more from her session: Pin it!

What beautiful pictures this session produced. I think it was great for your first bathtub shoot. I love the one with her laying in the tub with the flowers around her head.
Very beautiful pictures! You really have amazing talent!
The pics have come out so well. It’s like you are telling a story through those pics. I absolutely love the top shot in the bath tub, where I could see her tattoo and the other one where the light falls behind her making us focus on to her face and eyes. Brilliant shots!
are you kidding me that this is your first time doing this kind of shoot?! it looks amazing – you’re truly a talented person – my coworker just did a pregnancy bathtub photo shoot & before that i didn’t really know it was a thing!
Thank you! That means a lot to me!! And yeah it truly was my first time. I swear the pull back would’ve probably had you second guessing my ability ahaha. I didn’t know it was a thing until I started practicing photography! I think all water sessions are awesome though so it was only a matter of time lol
