You think you hate having your photo taken
Imagine this: You spent all this money to go all this way to get your photo taken in Paris with the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre. You have hired the most amazing stylist, and you have shopped and shopped. You planned, you traveled, you prepared.
Then it comes…the exact moment…the camera is on you…the moment is here and you fall apart. You feel closed, blocked, scared, fearful of being seen.
So what are your choices? Do you plaster on a fake smile and say there is no turning back or do you do something else?
This is exactly what happened to EMUNA.
There we were shooting on the streets of Paris and something wasn’t working.
There we were, both of us knew the option to continue and plaster on a fake smile would just be wrong but moving forward was scary.
So I invited her to express how she was feeling at that exact moment. I said, “Just be. Be with yourself how you are.” All the stuff about being seen came up. All the fears came up!
And rather than handing her tissue and talking her through it, I picked up my camera and bore whiteness to a woman completely in her vulnerability.
Why hide? Why shield ourselves from the truth? Once shaken once stirred this emotion needs to pass, so we gave it attention, we allowed it presence, welcomed it, embraced it and allowed it to pass.
Once it passed I asked her if she was ready and she said yes.
What emerged was a strong proud woman, confident in her body. Sensual and sexy. It was more than a photo shoot. She was ready to be seen.
And she showed up!
That kind of authentic beauty is magnetic! It’s juicy, it’s alive, it’s sensual, it’s freedom! Stepping into this kind of TRUTH owning our beauty allows us to create, to attract to magnetize what we want in this world. This is the power of the feminine! This is the power I want you to have!
I know that even after this story you still feel anxious about being seen, your weight, your hair, your age, or even you don’t have your ducks in a row!
I am not just inviting you to have your photo done, I am inviting you to say yes, to say yes to stepping into that Juiciness of your TRUTH and Beauty. And then to have it reflected back to you!
