Self-Love Portraits In New Jersey

‘Self-Love’ has become a bit of a buzzword. What does it truly mean? The term comes up time and time again, empowering women to embrace their bodies, their style and feel good about themselves. And rightfully so, EVERYONE should be reminded of their value and worth, and the treasure they bring to this world.

But let’s be honest, deep down, how many of us can truly say that we have a real, genuine love for ourselves? We put on a brave front, a smiling face in front of strangers, when internally we nitpick and criticize the littlest things about who are, what we look like, or what we can’t be.

Please tell me in the comments, I can’t be the only one feeling this way?

Let me put it this way, more often than not, the negative voice in our heads tends to be louder than the voice of positivity.

This is the purpose of my L’amour de Soi Campaign. To remind you not only of your beauty, but all the great things there are who make you who you are.

It was such an honor to capture these gorgeous images of Jody for a L’amour de Soi photo session. I really wanted to make this a special moment for Jody — she has such a pure heart and works tirelessly to make the world better for others.Myzie Photography | L'amour de Soi | Self-Love

I couldn’t wait for her to come into the Myzie Photography studio, to be pampered with some bubbly and favorite treats, and a professional makeup artist to make her even more glamourous than she already was.

On a side note: I can’t tell who enjoys this portion of the photoshoot more, me or my client because it brings me so much joy to see the excitement and surprise of a makeover.

A Little More L’amour de Soi | Self-Love

Jody is not come to play — she served face, attitude, and all the self-love! With her favorite music playing in the background, we had a great time dancing and capturing the pure moments of happiness in taking this time to show self-love.

At our pre-session consultation, I ask Jody what was one ‘thing’ that she loved about herself? She said her eyes, which I can definitely stand behind, Jody has beautiful eyes. But what struck me the most was the vibrancy of her smile, and how it radiates joy to others. They say a smile can change the world — I have no doubt that this is the case for Jody.

It was my greatest pleasure capturing these images for the L’amour de Soi Campaign with Jody. Everyone deserves to feel loved, to feel cherished, and appreciated. L’amour de Soi does just that. Now, the question is: are you next?
