Boudoir and Prosthetic Glass Eye

🦋When we first started Lora’s boudoir shoot in Toronto studio, this beautiful mother and business owner was concerned how her prosthetic glass eye would impact the images.

Prosthetics or not, I think her beauty is completely wholesome and absolutely illuminating! When I asked her if I could share her images, she stopped for a second and shrugged and said: “Why not?! They’re beautiful and elegant!” And I agree 💯!

Her wardrobe selection included lace teddies, camo undies, plaid sets, and corsets along with our Dream Boudoir Photography signature angel wings!

What started as an idea to create an album to her husband for their 20th wedding anniversary gift, ended up with side-effects of self-love and boosted confidence.

Thank you, Dreamgirl, for your story and your radiant presence 🙏

First all-female spacewalk temporarily a no-go by NASA because there aren’t enough spacesuits

This breaks my heart but I understand. The problem is that only 11% of NASA – National Aeronautics and Space Administration identifies as women that’s why you can’t find a “broad range” of ready-to-wear suits. We should fix it ASAP though.

This is an important feat for women’s empowerment. As a little girl, my dreams of being an astronaut were shattered by the country I was raised in. I wouldn’t allow any other young girl to go through that feeling. NASA, I’ve loved you since the day I could spell “Earth” and I really want you to fix this ASAP. ?

CNN has reported:

NASA astronauts Anne McClain and Christina Koch were set to make history Friday as the first all-female crew to conduct a spacewalk at the International Space Station. Now, Koch will instead be joined by male astronaut Nick Hague due to spacesuit fit issues.

NASA has only one spacesuit size medium available at the station, the agency announced Monday.
As part of Expedition 59, the astronauts were set for a series of three spacewalks to complete work on the ISS. On March 22, Hague and McClain conducted the first in the series. McClain and Koch were set to go out together on Friday to continue work on installing powerful lithium-ion batteries for one pair of the station’s solar arrays.

 

“However, after consulting with McClain and Hague following the first spacewalk, mission managers decided to adjust the assignments, due in part to spacesuit availability on the station,” reads a statement from NASA.
“McClain learned during her first spacewalk that a medium-size hard upper torso — essentially the shirt of the spacesuit — fits her best. Because only one medium-size torso can be made ready by Friday, March 29, Koch will wear it.”
McClain and Koch will both be making history during this mission by being the 13th and 14th women to perform a spacewalk.

As for the third spacewalk in the series, McClain is tentatively scheduled to be joined by Canadian Space Agency astronaut David Saint-Jacques on April 8.
The NASA website shows the spacewalk will last about seven hours.
McClain and Koch were part of the 2013 astronaut class, half of which were women, and came from the second largest number of applications NASA ever has received, more than 6,100. The most recent class of flight directors was also 50% women, NASA said.

McClain was on the ISS as part of Expedition 58, while Koch blasted off into space on March 14 to reach the station for Expedition 59 and 60 along with Cmdr. Alexey Ovchinin and Hague. This is the first time in space for McClain and the first spaceflight for Koch.

Spacewalks are held for a number of reasons, according to NASA, including doing work outside a spacecraft, conducting science experiments and testing new equipment. Astronauts also conduct spacewalks to fix satellites or spacecraft that are already in space, instead of having them brought back to Earth to fix.

Why be a Dreamgirl?

A Dreamgirl is:

A woman who has been hurt but is ready to fight back.

A woman who has found love and is ready to celebrate it.

A woman who has lost love and is ready to find it within herself, for herself.

A woman who is scared to look in the mirror but want to appreciate herself.

A mother.

A cop.

A lawyer.

A CEO.

A flight attendant.

A pilot.

A grandmother.

A student.

A teacher.

A self-made go-getter.

A woman who is only now beginging to understand who she is.

I know it’s hard to be your authentic self. Let me explain how I know this:

In the begining, all those years ago, when I started photography as a business and my focus shifted from art to the bank, the first piece to go out of the window was authenticity.

It was all about, if I said what xyz “successful” photographer is saying or did what xyz is doing or offered what xyz is doing, I will make it out there.

It was all about self-doubt and a lack of trust not just in myself but also in the audience I wanted to work with — that I have to adjust to what I *think* they want instead of me knowing that what I can offer from deep within is actually exactly what they *need.*

But last year, I decided to shut down all that noise. I introduced the confidence that I have always had with the academic side of things into my business and art. I stopped watching and listening to what others are all about and started focusing on what Alishba has to offer which is unique. And I quickly found out that it was my voice, relatability, passion, and deep understanding of what makes women powerful that is irreplacable and something no one can every copy or take away from me.

Someone recently brought this to my attention that xyz is trying to imitate me, down to my word choice and articulation. And I just laughed.

Why?

Because imitation is the best form of flattery 

But also because I am a deeply secure person. Anyone who has met me will tell you the same thing. So it’s only natural that I feel secure in my work, too. I know what attracts women to trust me and work with me is a unique set and combination of living my authentic self, delivering what I expect to receive, and going above and beyond with staying married to my inner voice and ideas that I am naturally and intellectually drawn to.

A feminist. A skeptic. A science geek. An artist. A mother. A lover.

And this is why I attract the very best of women — these women are DREAMGIRLS. Because they have trusted me with bringing their dream to life and when they let go off that first wall of strong guard, throughout all the clicks of the camera, together we discover POWER and that’s why when we look at the images together, we laugh and we cry knowing that we have given ourselves a gift that can never be replaced.

To all my Dreamgirls, thank you 

And to you, I can’t wait to see you in the studio xo

Victoria’s Secret Inspired Angel Wings Photoshoot in Toronto – Why I Offer These Sessions

It’s quite simple:

In and of itself, these Victoria’s Secret inspired angel wings are an example of beautiful and expensive craftsmanship. On their own, they are just majestic ostrich feather luxury prop items that spark curiosity and wonder.

However, when a woman wears these and has her photos taken in these, one or both of the following might happen:

Feeling your own powerful existence

We had a very special session in the studio recently where a lovely woman came to us to cure her heartbreak. She called to book the session because she was feeling hurt and betrayed. Once we treated her with extra TLC, gave her an experience she would never forget, and presented her with her beautiful photos, she broke down in tears feeling recharged and healed.

She saw herself stand tall, powerful, and was able to appreciate her true reflection which was temporarily obscured by the feeling of hurt and sadness.

She’s looks like a phoenix rising from the ashes!

She brought the full force of her personality to this angel wings boudoir photoshoot and that made these feathers come to life.

Realizing you are as beautiful as you always wanted to be

A mom of toddler twins and a 6 month old was in the studio this week for the angel wings boudoir photoshoot I offer in Toronto. She told me she had never, ever liked full-body shots of herself. But when she saw her photos after the session, 80% of the images she ordered were full body shots! If a pair of these wings is what it takes to make you see your own beauty, then all my investment is worth seeing the smile on your face. Remember, it’s not because of the wings that you are beautiful. It’s because of you the wings come together in the picture.

So, really, this is not so much about the fact that Dream Boudoir Photography owns a pair of one-of-a-kind wings. It’s about you being a Dream Boudoir Photography DREAMGIRL who makes these inanimate come ALIVE.

The pride of my photography and my studio is not these wings. The pride of my photography is being honored with the trust women like you put in me to capture you — and I cannot wait for you to grace these wings with the gift of being photographed on you.

See you in the studio xo
