Location: The Alexis Hotel – Downtown Seattle Hair & Makeup: Ashli Danielle Client: Adriana
It’s hard to believe these images were taken over a year ago, November 3rd of last year to be exact. My business was only about 6 months old. Adriana was my 11th client. I feel vulnerable admitting that for some reason. My thoughts immediately go to, “11 clients in 6 months, you should be ashamed of that, don’t write that online”, but f*ck that. I’m calling BS on myself. I started this business without a portfolio in boudoir. I was 24. I was broke. I had just quit my job. I distinctly remember thinking “This is totally insane but if I never try, I’ll always regret it.” So I did it anyway and turned a profit my first year.
Even if it’s hard, and damn it, it is still very hard. Every day it’s hard, but I get through the tough times by remembering what I’m really doing this for – those moments when I get an email a year later from a client who is still SO in love with her pictures she’s decided she wants to be on the site. That’s what makes me feel like I’m making a difference. Thank you for being a bright light Adriana! Now let’s get our Glitter & Glamour on…All my love, Dana Kae
