Our greatest battle is to become ourselves while others may push against us becoming who we truly are. There’s a lot of resistance to be fully present when working on something you love. I find that the best thing to do is to pray or meditate; this will help you get into the zone of creating something new whether it’s within writing, modeling, photography. Inspiration will come but it actually starts with our humbleness taking the space of our ego. In order to combat the fear to create You have to realize that you come from a higher source and in order to do what you love or what you were meant to do you will need to surrender and be humble. Like TD Jakes said “ We were created by our creator to be creative.” Once you rise to the level of losing yourself in yourself with good habits to create a flow of work you will feel connected to your source and do great things for people all over. Such as Steven Pressfield said, “… the difference between a Pro and an Amateur is that the Amateur plays for fun but the Pro plays for keeps. Let’s make the switch and change our habits to manifest into more creative and present beings and commit full time to our gifts and talents. So Stop thinking about you and being materialistic and instead think of all of us as united and offer your art as a gift!
After many years of struggling in lIFE’s Social Concepts, following trajectory thoughts and actions relating to self doubt - I had a break down. Yes, me a naturally happy go lucky girl Getter. But many issues that I hadn’t dealt with from my past made me feel like my validation was weak in root.
But by the grace of God I was blessed to have some good friends and family plant a seed in me. This seed blossomed beautiful truths but The most valuable Truth that I will share with you today is that the ultimate thing you can do for yourself is to find self-love within yourself and commit to things that nurtures you in real ways.
My daily routine changed from waking up and going straight to my computer or phone to waking up slowly and taking long breaths, kissing and hugging my family, singing aloud, practicing in being present and saying many affirmations to myself in the bathroom mirror. And yes It was super awkward in the beginning talking to myself and saying “I love You” looking into mine own eyes while both my hands covered my heart but it transformed me little by little to be more free and more in love with me and my surroundings.
Now I am free of bad vibes most days, no longer producing just to produce, giving presence and love to causes and people I care for & I’m grateful that Because of this wisdom which I know is a gift from my divine source I’m finally able to truly live my best life by being me with no regrets. This feeling is so freaking Amazing that I want to share it with the world and help others heal in a safe space that uplifts and promotes self care. This is my chosen path, my work, my beautiful truth!
I encourage you to specialize in being happy in this new year. Forget about sorrows, forget about debts, forget about anything that makes you feel depressed and work on good vibrations. That will lead you to the light and eventually make you glow! Someone told me to love myself will help me love others with more depth and ever since I've been putting it into action. I see wonders in my life since I learned how to truly love. And if you do this now 2018 is going to be the best year for you and the ones you love so go on and LOVE. Show gratitude And Live Life In the Present Moment! When you Feel The Love Everything Glows and You'll Glow to Baby!

Va-va-voom! Things are heating up here at our studio with this recent seductive boudoir shoot featuring the lovely "DMFK." She rocked a few different looks in this series, one of which is bound to catch your eye. Varying from country boots to Victorian-style corsets and laughing shots to intense gazes, the constant was the exuding sensuality the camera captured. This half-Brazilian half-American babe fell into character and made it all the more exciting to photograph in the bedroom.
A blast is an understatement for what we experienced on our 2015 Annual Boudoir Party last weekend with the lovely people who participated. Me as photographer and Thais the makeup and hair artist along with Keila making sure that everything ran smoothly was all very inspiring to watch. The muses who came in to stunt their goodies for the camera were a delight to work with. Their gorgeousness reigned from inside and out. It was a dream to be witnessing such an affair with great light, good vibrations, yummy treats and sexy fun with these awesome ladies. If you missed out, sorry not sorry but Prices are back to normal but Keep an eye out for our next Boudoir Party to book your session for a deal and an exciting time with like minded girlfriends ready to create one of a kind images celebrating themselves.

Despite the late summer heat, Studio P. tackled yet another fantastic photo shoot by bringing some of the best qualities it has to offer: style, fun, and resourcefulness. Looking like a spread on Vanity Fair, the concept came together quite nicely when photographer and founder, Priscilla, and her creative team sat down to discuss ideas for the shoot. "We agreed the photos would depict a rustic sophistication. So we found the perfect location that would provide us with a grungy background, and then proceeded to style the models with outfits that would balance it with class and sophistication." said Priscilla. But like many shoots, things don't always run as smoothly on set as they do on paper. When a few models canceled last minute, Studio P. enlisted some of its very attractive friends and supporters to step in and strike a pose. All in all, everyone agreed things came together perfectly; the team was happy, the photos came out beautifully, and everyone left excited for the next shoot.

In the Spirit of Saint Patty's Day why not write about a wonderful shoot with our Delira and Excira darlin of Ireland ancestry, Ms. K! When we were asked to come over to this darlin's home to do her boudoir session per our studio's living social deal we were ecstatic to come in a place with beautiful lighting all around. That's what photographer's live for; the light and making use of it. And we couldn't help but recreate a certain abstract artsy 70s retro boudoir shoot with the available light all around her comfy sun-filled flat. Light is largely responsible for creating the mood of the scene. At K's living room for example there was a plant between the windows that brought some dramatic lighting into play and we used it naturally to convey the look. She still remains the most dominant in the photo because of how we positioned her within the frame. Main focus, personal and interpretive, was met in a sensual way through the series of photos we shot within the hour.
Thank you beautiful Miss K. Hope to do some more interpretive photos of you through abstract photography via boudoir photo session soon. If you want a boudoir session of your taste we would love to work with you. Shop (( HERE ))
