Whitney Beauty Session | Southern Utah Photographer

When a mama calls to book a White Sheet Session and tells me that she has been working hard for the past 6 months after having her baby and just wants to feel beautiful, know that I don't take that lightly.

I don't do this for me. I do this for you. To empower you and show you the beauty I see so you can see if within yourself.

Gosh, we have kids and everything changes... our bodies, our mindset, and life as we once knew it. It's definitely for the better, but it seems that no matter how hard we try at some point we lose ourselves.

I was the mom that poured my heart and soul into being a mom because that's what I thought I was supposed to do. To set all the dreams and goals I had in my life on the back burner and focus on being there for my kids + everyone else.

That's simply not the case. We should teach our kids to chase their dreams, to work hard, and that they are beautiful no matter what.

We should empower them to feel comfortable in the skin they are in and we can only do that by example + if we see it within ourselves.

Sometimes we get so hung-up on the topknot in our hair + yoga pants, t-shirt wearing girl staring back at us in the mirror that we forget that there's true beauty behind this chaos in life.

All we have to do is get permission to let our hair down, get dolled up, and allow someone else to show us what already exists so that we can see it within ourselves.

You are beautiful and don't ever forget it. I don't take the opportunity lightly to be able to show you what you already hold so you may see that within yourself.
