What does it mean to be a woman?
With every year that passes, a redefinition takes place for me. As I’ve grown and changed, my definition of womanhood has changed as well. When I was younger it was drilled into me that to be a woman is to be inferior, to be unable to lead, to have an inherently shameful body, to be subservient.These interpretations of womanhood never sat well with me. But when I was younger these doctrines and seeped under my skin without my consent. I hated my body for its curves. I didn’t look like those girls in TeenVogue and could never seem to have the body I thought I was meant to have. After high school I realized I needed to unlearn those lies. I decided to try to love myself instead. The path toward self love is a long journey, and I have a feeling it will never stop. I’m not the expert, but I can tell you a few things I’ve learned: women are strong. women are kind. women are caring. women are intuitive. women are wise. women are powerful. Lean into your power—nurture it and let it grow.
Don’t be afraid to take up space.

"Not only is Natalie an amazing photographer, but she also creates an entire EXPERIENCE for your photo session! I was absolutely blown away by her thoughtfulness and attention to detail for my boudoir mini session. She guided me through the entire process with how to pose and where to move, so I never felt lost or confused with what to do with my body! And she MADE ME FEEL LIKE A FRICKEN QUEEN!!! She was cheering me on and encouraging me from the beginning and made me feel so confident, comfortable, and completely at ease. I am going to cherish these photos forever--and thanks to Natalie, I will be looking back on them and be like 'dang that was just such a fun day.' Trust me, you want and NEED to work with her!"
