Laura - Free Spirit Session {Calgary}

Self-doubt is a terrible trap. It's one that is so incredibly easy to slip into, and unbelievably hard to make your way out of. When I first started Free Spirit Sessions, they were just a more "casual" take on boudoir photography; they were essentially a lot of boudoir with a little less glam. Never in a million years did I think that they would start to evolve into what I always knew they were meant to become. It has taken almost 12 months for the message behind my Free Spirit sessions to seep out and make itself known to a handful of people; it has taken time and patience, but they've finally begun to draw in these wild-hearted women who I most likely wouldn't have met otherwise. It's been a slow-going process, but it's so so incredibly worth it. I came in the door after my session with Laura and the first thing that I told Mark was: "It's incredible. I cannot believe it. These sessions are finally more than just pictures, I feel it. These women are booking these sessions for a greater reason than simply to have pictures of themselves. They're all on such incredibly unique journeys".

Laura, you strong-willed, independent carrier of light and laughter; thank you for trusting me with this process. For being a totem of acceptance + love, and propellant for embracing the present moment. Your energy is incredible; inviting and encouraging. You've developed such a strong sense of self, and simply being in your presence is encouraging. I'm so thankful to know you. I believe in who you are and where you are going. Can't wait to see you the next time you're in Calgary.
