Mothers have a magical touch.  Nothing is more powerful, healing or calming than the unconditional love that comes from our mothers.  Whether you know everything about your mother or not, there are sacrifices you aren’t aware of that your mother has done for you to have a better life – and she isn’t willing to stop anytime soon.  Your mother is special to you.  No one else will understand the exact importance your mother is to you but hopefully share the same feelings towards their own mother.  This Mother’s Day give your mother a gift that is truly timeless…a captured moment of her beauty.  4814 Grand Rapids Beauty Photography 106 This Is For Our Moms 4814 Grand Rapids Beauty Photography 101 This Is For Our Moms

Our mother’s beauty radiates from the inner depth of her heart and soul.  Her beauty should not just be shown through her love for her family but also for herself.  This mother’s day treat your mother to a beauty session.  1414Brown 107 This Is For Our Moms1414Brown 120 This Is For Our Moms

She deserves to be pampered by having her hair and make up professionally done to shine for the camera.  It is a wonderful sentiment to feel extra special for a day, while capturing those moments on camera that allow the day to last forever.  The added bonus is that the beauty your mother felt that day will be because of you – something she will never forget.

There is also the option of doing a session together – a mother-daughter duo – can expand the experience to greater heights.  Just the gesture alone to your mother will mean more to her than you can image.  Her happiness alone will make your heart feel her magic.  True happiness is seeing our mothers smile.  4415AKDT 101 This Is For Our Moms 4415AKDT 121 This Is For Our Moms

We are our parents’ greatest gifts in their lives.  They are beyond deserving of the world, so show your mother how they mean the world to you by gifting them something that will show the world the best version of themselves – a beautiful picture, of a beautiful woman, to shine to the end of time.


Remember your mothers on May 10th!  Show her how much you care!  Book her appointment today.

When mom, Kate, and daughter, Tori, come to Grand Rapids beauty photography studio for a makeover for a super sweet photo session.  Beauty sessions are great for young women like Tori and perfect to share with moms like Kate.  It makes for a great bonding experience between mom and daughter because they both get pampered together and see the transformations take place.  I am honored and happy these two beauties could be here and in front of my camera.

I love the sparkly, exotic things in life especially when I’m on my way to my favorite shopping places.  I dream of the day of owning my own studio and if I had it my way this is what I would be furnished with!

It’s been awhile since I last wrote on this blog.  As matter of fact, unless I check my archives, I can’t remember when I wrote last.  So why today?  Why now?  Well, simply, I have some things to say.  The past few years of my business have been an eye opening and even more, a heart opening experience.  I have been able to go places, see beautiful things, and meet beautiful people. Within that time, I have had many moments of self reflection, especially this past year.  For the past 6 years I have been a wedding and portrait photographer and I have learned a lot from this business.  I’ve had a chance to connect with many of my clients on a deep level and even better, reconnect with people I have not seen in years.  It’s amazing how time flies and how the years just past by in a blink.  During my times of self reflection, I have come to a hard truth and have been scared to admit for sometime, but I’ve built up the courage to say out loud that I will not photograph weddings for my business anymore.  It’s not that I don’t like them and I certainly don’t hate them.  I just don’t feel as passionately about weddings as most of my colleagues are and their images are proof of their enthusiasm.  I enjoy shooting weddings but I prefer a more sidekick approach which is second shooting for other photographers, in which I will continue to do so.

With all that being said, I am still photographing.  My camera is not sitting down.  As a matter of fact, I am very excited and happy to announce that I will be photographing boudoir and glamour photography.  What does this mean?  It means I will dedicate my business and life to making beautiful images of everyday women and helping them appreciate a little bit more of who they are and what they do.  My heart just swells just typing that out.  I have always been inspired with people in general, and I’ve always wanted to connect with them more on a deep and profound level.  At the same time, I am fighting for women on their definition of what beautiful is.  I will always disagree with women who badger themselves in how bad they look and only encourage how wonderful they are.  Confidence, encouragement, appreciation, acceptance, friendliness, respect, kindness, and authenticity are the core ingredients of what beautiful is.  I want to photograph any and every woman who can understand and relate with me on the kind of beauty that I speak of.  Photographing them is the best way I can express that.

Glamour sessions are beauty sessions for women who prefer an option without wearing sexy lingerie.  Boudoir is more edgy and has a more sexy, risque appeal, but it’s also quite a bold act to make for yourself.  That’s why I love what the genre stands for.  Why not seize the moment and embrace yourself as  you are right now?  Be brave!  Be courageous!   The truth is it’s scary to put yourself out there and see yourself in such a bold way.  One day you’re going to look back and see those crazy, sexy, gorgeous pictures of yourself and say, “Wow, I was one sexy B****!!”

For more information on my Boudoir and Glamour sessions or just go for it and book a session, please email me, emerycophoto@hotmail.com.  I would be happy to go over the details about my sessions.

To all of my clients, friends, and family, thank you for supporting me and being a part of my journey.   I hope you understand my decision and that you continue to stay by my side as I continue to do big awesome things for my little business.

Xo,

Jaz
