Bawse

 

Hey loves, Hey!

So, I am still in my "year in review" mode for 2017. Today, I wanted to highlight a few of the women "bawses" that I have had the privilege  of capturing. Now some of you may be asking, what's a bawse? Is it the same as boss and why doesn't she just spell it the right way? Well, bawse just sounds a little more badass. According to the urban dictionary, "a bawse is a human being who exudes confidence, turns heads, reaches goals, finds inner strength, gets hurt efficiently and smiles genuinely - because they've fought through it all and made it out the other side."  Yasssss!! Now, you can understand the necessary difference in spelling. :)

So, without delay, here are three of my favorite bawse sessions of 2017.

First up is the radiant, Chianti - Happiness Curator, self care guru, life coach and "psychology nerd," per her bio. This was one of my favorite sessions because Chianti's energy is insanely amazing! Like, you can't help but feel alive and happy when you're around her. From our initial phone consultation, I knew we would have an amazing session and boy, did we ever! Take a look.

Next is Lenese, aka, soon to be Dr. Stephens. Lenese is also a student of psychology and has such a sweet spirit. Her session was full of color, vibrancy and lots of dancing. lol. We had a ball! She was a little nervous at the beginning but by the end of the session, she was working all the camera angles. Yasssss was uttered multiple times during our session. Her session was all about embracing her awesomeness and celebrating her achievements. Get it girl!

Lastly is one of my favorite clients, turned friend, Courtney. Courtney is an amazing event planner with an impeccable eye for detail. She's also hella hilarious and loves to dance, which is why we get along so well. We've done several events together, but way back in the beginning of the year, we braved the freezing cold for a mini session and she rocked it out. Check her out.

Ladies, you are amazing all around and so gifted at what you do. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you. To my awesome readers, please check these ladies out.

Until next time, lovelies
