Maria N – Celebrate You – Vero Beach Boudoir Photography

Maria saw some photos and the blog post that I did for a fellow photographer colleague named Carly (that Maria knew the work of).  She then contacted me about doing a shoot.  Since I announced my relocation from Florida to Delaware – I am blessed to say that people are clamoring to get a shoot with me.   I was able to get Maria’s session booked before I filled up completely.  Jackie Johnson of Abyss Salon and I had the pleasure of being able to work together once again for this shoot.  Vero Beach Boudoir Photo_0006The main reason that I do before/after shots is so that real women can see that EVERYONE I showcase on my website/blog/facebook page are not super models.  They are just like everyone else.  They look just like us all when we get out of bed and have no makeup on or have our hair done.  It also is to showcase what a difference having a professional hair and makeup artist providing those services makes.  Here is Maria’s before/after shot!  All of my clients are beautiful in their before shots too!  For the record; I happened to snap this photo of Maria for her before shot while we were chatting and she was in the process of kind of laughing.  😉Vero Beach Boudoir Photo_0001Here are the favorites that Maria and I have chosen from her shoot.  People sometimes ask me if EVERYONE ends up on the blog or website or Facebook Page.  The answer is NO!  It is 100% up to each individual client.  I have clients who have jobs/careers that don’t allow me to showcase their images.  I have clients who just choose to keep it as a special secret.  It is TOTALLY my client’s choice.  Maria specifically requested to be on the blog.  I LOVE when a client loves their images so much that they wanna show them off to the world….that is the highest compliment for me.  Vero Beach Boudoir Photo_0002 Vero Beach Boudoir Photo_0003 Vero Beach Boudoir Photo_0004Maria is an artist herself.  She is a musician & she wanted to incorporate her guitar into some of the shots.  I cannot imagine anything more sexy than a hot woman & her guitar!Vero Beach Boudoir Photo_0005I also think it is very important for potential clients to hear directly from past clients on what their experience is like.  Occasionally I get email testimonials from clients.  There is nothing better than hearing it straight from their own mouth.  Here is what Maria had to say about her shoot:

“I contacted Dawn V. Gilmore on January 17th 2013 the day of my 35th birthday. After seeing some of her work through a mutual friend I decided that I would love to capture what I looked like at my “new” age. I called Dawn up and told her that I was ready to take on a “Celebrate You” session. I was hesitant at first due to having a set of boy/girl twins who just turned one in December. Dawn was very open to discussion and her communication was prompt and friendly. She made me feel that she was confident in her work. Dawn also mentioned not only would she be shooting me but I would also have a glamorous make over! I was thrilled it was like Glamor Shots but better, in the privacy of my own home. Dawn set up everything and arrived on time. She was accompanied by Jacqueline Johnson (makeup and hair stylist). After my makeup and hair was styled the shoot began. As any first time mommy I was worried and afraid of my post baby body; however, Dawn made me feel as I told her, “like a natural woman.” She helped me embrace my curves. She encouraged me to feel as though I was her only client that could take on this challenge without fear. Dawn finished the shoot and left for the day. As a stay-at-home mommy I felt as if I was Cinderella going to a ball. My makeup was beautiful and the care and attention by Dawn and her team was tremendously affectionate. If the above wasn’t enough the photography speaks for itself. The images were amazing! I had never been so proud of the way that I looked. There was no smoke or mirrors. Just a photographer who has a good eye for detail and the imagination and guts to take on a boudoir photo shoot. After my pictures were complete I gave my husband, as a Valentine’s Day gift, a book with a dedication that read: My one glorious success in life has been that I have loved another with all my heart and soul. Thank you Dawn for making my dreams come true. I will forever cherish you and the gift you bestowed onto my memory forever.”  THANK YOU Maria for your wonderful words.  It was my honor & privilege to get to have you in front of my camera.  xoxo
