“I just made it home from the reveal… and I still can’t believe those photos. It’s funny when you go through this process of learning to live without someone, you’re forced to be with your own thoughts – and that’s honestly what has been the hardest part. I was always someone else’s everything, and I had lost sight of who I was and what I deserved.
I remember asking myself if I really wanted to do the shoot with everything going on, especially because it was originally for him. I remember pushing myself to do it because I knew deep down (being that it would be my second shoot) that it would be good for me, even though I’m not sure I felt like that when we had originally scheduled.
Over the past few months, I have become more at peace with a lot of things. Not just being without him, or dealing with the fact that someone didn’t want to be with me… but really being at peace with myself. I’ve grown a lot. I’ve learned a lot, including the fact that even though this was what he wanted, it was meant to be this way, and I deserve better. Tonight, almost a week after everything being finalized, was literally the best thing that could have happened. I knew it would be good – because the work is yours. But what I saw wasn’t just how beautiful I felt – it was like you captured a part of my soul on camera. I saw happiness, I saw the peace, and I saw a fire that burns brighter now than it ever has.
Miranda, I could never pay you enough money in the world for what you’ve given me. I’ll never be able to put into words how much the session and the reveal helped me cope. And I’ll always be able to look at those photos and remember the strength they make me feel.
What you do isn’t just boudoir photography and it’s way more than art. You’ve given gifts to so many women, helped them in so many ways. Your true talent is healing and empowering people, and it happens through photography.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
