GirlPOWER!

I met this amazing and remarkable woman a few years ago.  We were both participating at an event at Levana Bratique here in the Pittsburgh area that was focused on pampering women.  When I started talking with her, her heart poured out of her, her love to support and serve, her kindness and generosity – every thing exuded out of her.  She lit up a room.

What gets her excited?  Periods.  Yup, that taboo topic that most people don’t like to talk about.  Well, she faces that head on!  Her goals are very simple:  End period poverty, give dignity to all who menstruate, and provide period products upon asking, no explanation needed.  She’s been known to walk the streets and hand out period products to homeless folks so they are never in need of a basic necessity.

Prior to meeting her, I never thought about how there are so many people that need these products that don’t have easy access to them.  That’s my privilege loud and clear there.  I take for granted that when my period starts, I have everything I need to manage that time of the month.  Now that I know better, I will do better.  I will use my privilege to help those that don’t have that privilege.

I personally have supported her endeavor and I know that she’s going to change the world with her mission.  She was recently tasked to provide a refugee family with over 400 period products, and with the help of her community, she was able to do that!  I am proud to say that my community came together when we shared about this to help in her efforts.  I am so grateful and thankful for a community that supports these kind of missions and jumps in as soon as a need is identified.

The world changes, lives are changed, when women come together to support other women!

I finally had her here for a boudoir session, and she’s pretty much a SUPERMODEL! Am I right?!? Check it out!

Closer to fine

Another Chick Clique Beauty for you today with her personal share.  Here’s what she posted in my private Boudoir Group on Facebook (Join us!):

So I started writing what could have easily turned into a chapter book to post here when I had the photos taken, (legit like almost 2 months ago) then I saw them.

Those who know me, know I’m NOT a woman of few words. I’m a talker… today I sat speechless a number of times.

My Apple Watch notified me 3 times to breath!

This was my second session, I had a vision, Maura entertained me and gave me what I wanted and like a MILLION times more! What I wanted was clearly NOT enough and Maura pushed me, and THANK GOD!

These pictures show EXACTLY who I am. If you have a question about who your looking at after seeing these pictures you’re not “really” looking!

Because of what everything that day was and what everything today was, and really looking at how I’ve grown, Maura, you’ve helped me get, Closer to fine…

And here’s what she had to say about her session:

1) Why did you decide to invest in a boudoir photo shoot?  LOVED my 1st experience but got to know Maura on a more personal level and have a vision of what I was wanting for round two… a bit darker, moodier, and MAN O MAN.

2) How did you feel about yourself before your photo shoot?  OK. Not great, Not bad, OK. Covid has been pretty shitty to all of us and I fell victim to poor choices and lack of motivation. The shoot actually kick my ass into gear!

3) How did you feel about yourself after your photo shoot?  I felt amazing. I loved it, I was empowered and free!

4) Describe your session in 3 words?  Fierce, Bold, Sexy

5) What was your favorite part of the boudoir photo shoot?  The wings!!!!

6) What value do you think a boudoir session brings to your life and the community of women you support? It’s so hard for those that never experienced it to understand. Lots of folks (myself included) see the $ and cringe. I can tell you that the therapy it provides is unmatched. To see how awesome you really are, to see that IS YOU, to be pampered for 3-5 hours…it’s invaluable.

7) What would you say to other women who are considering a boudoir photo shoot?  Stop stalling, Stop finding reasons to wait, and just do it! Your soul will thank you.

The Refresh I needed

Another gorgeous client is here to share about her most recent session – her third with me!

Here’s what she posted in our private Boudoir Group on Facebook:

6 months ago I scheduled what would be my second session with Maura. I was ecstatic had confidence knowing what to expect and couldn’t wait. Fast forward to September i gained 30lbs was dealing with a daughter who has a severe mental health disorder, I was tired, I cried alot and I just didn’t want to do a session.. in fact I was making every excuse I could think of to not go to my session (my hair, my tan lines my weight).
*
Somehow Maura knows when your heart is sad. She senses it or something. She promised me the day would be magical and as usual it was.
*
I elected the partial outdoor session and Holy cow am I glad I did. It was probably the hottest day in September, I was sweaty, got slightly faint and had to take a time out, oh and let’s not even talk about the bugs… but every second was worth it. How Maura was able to capture my soft kind side and my hard badass side in one photo session is beyond me. I am still stunned.
*
As women we often forget to love ourselves, we often feel like we don’t deserve certain things in life, but truth is we do. And sometimes we just need a boost or a reminder. Thank you Maura for the refresh I needed!!

White Fantasy Wings

You see the black fantasy wings on the blog…now it’s time for the WHITE WINGS!

I started out etherial with the things, then I transitioned into something a bit harder.  I wanted to show the juxtaposition between white and black, so I loved the edgy look of styling with the white wings.

So many options here!
