Boudoir Contest Round 2!

Be you.  Allow me to illuminate your beauty

Several weeks ago I posted a contest where you had to apply to become a boudoir model….I was amazed at the response that I had.  I loved seeing all of the beautiful photo’s each woman sent in of themselves some of them putting their hearts on their sleeves.  I thank each and every one of you for sharing your story with me! It means a lot!!! No matter our shape or our size or our confidence level we all have the same insecurities.  Let me say that again!  We all have the same insecurities!  There is always something about ourselves we are never happy with. It was a really hard decision to make to select the ones that I did.  I would have loved to be able to photograph each one of you!  As not one of you is more deserving then the next.

 

I have had the chance to meet each of the 3 final contestants and photograph each of them.  Each of these women are beautiful inside and out! Sometimes we don’t see our selves this way as we have an image portrayed of ourselves and we can’t get beyond that.  I can tell you each and everyone of these women left my studio on a high and felt very different from when they first walked through my studio doors.  If I have photographed you, you would know all about the experience and what it can do to you emotionally….whatever your reasons are this type of shoot is well worth the investment.  How much would it cost to build your self esteem? It is priceless!

 

I recently heard this story from a fellow photographer friend of mine.  She had the husband of her client contact her telling her saying it was well worth the $1000 for her to have this boudoir experience with her.  In fact he said he would have paid $10 000 for what she did for his wife’s self confidence!!!! This brings tears to my eyes every time I think about it.

 

Please write like under the photo in the comments below for your favorite person/image and they will win another amazing shoot with me

 

Here is what some of our clients are saying about us:

 

Ever since I was a little girl, I have always battled with my weight. Kids at school were relentless with the teasing and name calling. Growing up I always wanted to feel comfortable in my own skin, and be happy with myself. Looking in magazines I always pictured what it would be like to be skinny and to model. I never thought this dream would come true, well I was wrong. A friend of mine had done a shoot with Stacey before and I was amazed at how beautiful she was and the moments Stacey had captured for her. I got into contact with Stacey and the rest was history.  The days approaching my shoot I was very nervous thinking no one has ever seen me half naked other than partners I had be intimate with. Usually other girls are the worst for judging, but that wasn’t the case with Stacey. The day of the shoot I thought my heart was going to jump out of my chest. Upon meeting Stacey for the first time, she welcomed me into her studio with the biggest smile. I got ready with the hair and make-up artist and before I knew it, it was show time. I got changed into my first outfit, looked into the mirror and thought wow, this cant be me!! I looked like a model, something I always dreamed of. I was still very nervous we started the shoot, within a few minutes, she had me laughing and all those worries went away. It felt like second nature to model. Once the shoot was completed I had a whole new outlook on not only myself but my life. My self-confidence was uplift immensely. I felt beautiful from the inside out. Not only did Stacey make me finally comfortable in my own skin, but she gave me the confidence to want to share it with others. Since my shoot, I have become a different woman. I truly believe every woman needs to be touched by Stacey’s uplifting nature, and to feel just as beautiful as she made me.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         ~Sarah

 

I had the pleasure of working with Stacey on a number of occasions starting when I was pregnant, and twice after having my baby.  I lacked self confidence more than ever after having my little one due to having weight I’ve never had before and being covered in stretch marks.  Stacey made my experience an amazing one, she is so positive, enthusiastic about her work and excited to be able to work with different people.  It was literally never a dull moment, she kept me laughing and smiling and finally on the 3rd shoot I felt I could just be completely myself, no hiding, all out.  I truly recommended her to anyone, she takes pride in what she does, and what she does is fantastic!

~Kristen

 

If you have been sitting on the fence thinking about having an experience I guarantee you that this is a decision that you will not regret doing!  There is no time like the present!

Special Needs Contest Winner | London Ontario & Area Children’s Photographer

I am so happy that this contest is a draw!  It would be so hard to pick just one family that is more deserving then the next.  To me each family is deserving!  I thoroughly enjoyed reading each and every entry that cam in.  As some of you do not know,  I am an emotional person.  Yup I cry at a drop of a hat.  Yesterday I was at the hairdresser’s and she had me in tears telling me her story of being hospitalized as well as one of her friends.  They were both very close to death….any who…..back to the topic on hand, the special needs contest I cried at every story I read!  Each one was just as beautiful as the next.

I put all the names in to a basket and I had my daughter Ara pick a name and the winner is : Lillia Nominated by JENNIFER JOBE I thank everyone that sent in their entries for this month as well as sharing your story with me.

If you didn’t enter this month but you would like to.  Good news as I am doing this next month as well.  I want to make this extremely successful.  If you could please share this with any one that you feel could benefit from having a shoot done.  As sometimes photo’s get overlooked or you don’t have enough time or even money to get them done.  Please send me a brief description and you may include a photo for me to post here to my blog.  Send the entries to info@staceyhanlon.com

Thank you for allowing us to take a glimpse into your life.  I look forward to reading each of your entries!

 

I have 2 entries for March

 

NOMINATED – Tanner NOMINATED by Carol Wood

I’d love to nominate my 12 yr old son Tanner for the special needs photo shoot.

Unknown to us, Tanner would be born with Down syndrome. His blond hair and blue eyes

captured our hearts immediately. Unfortunately, his heart had not developed properly

and he would require open heart surgery to live. He spent his first 4 weeks in

hospital until he was strong enough to come home. At 16 weeks of age he underwent

surgery to repair his heart. Complications kept him in hospital for another month.

Finally at 5 months of age, my beautiful boy came home healthy. Tanner’s development

was delayed as expected, but he tried so hard and was so proud of each

accomplishment. At the age of 16 months though, we started to suspect there was more

going on. Tanner battled repeated infections and lost some of the milestones he had

reached, the biggest being eating. At the age of 3 we were finally able to get

things back under control, but he still eats only a puréed diet to this day.

Finally, at the age of 5, we received a diagnosis of Autism. While Down syndrome

changed our lives, autism challenged it! Tanner is non-verbal but communicates with

an awesome app on his iPad. He loves soccer, swimming and bowling. In July 2010, he

got to participate as a demonstration athlete in the Special Olympics Canadian

National Games. We are so proud of our beautiful young man. He reminds us every day

of the truly important things in life.

“Sometimes on the way to a dream, you get lost…and find a better one.” – unknown

 

 

Already in his short 16 yrs of life, Ty Perrott has faced more obstacles and challenges that many of us would never endure in our entire lifetime. Born at 25 weeks, Ty and his surviving brother Brad, both born with Cerebral Palsy have amazed all of those who are fortunate enough to know them with their perseverance, incredible spirit and optimism. They both truly inspire and teach us the true meaning of acceptance and determination. However it’s not been an easy road. Ty has faced several surgeries and hospitalizations to address his many medical challenges. Just when it would look hopeless- Ty would rally back in part because of the love and support from his family and friends. But the family needs our help !

Costs associated with being in the hospital are high; not to mention the loss of wages for his parents. His mom Traci has to stay by his side to advocate for him because he’s unable to tell others what he needs or that it hurts. As his Aunt, I started this page to start a fundraising mission to raise money to help with the costs as Ty is right now in Children’s Hospital in critical care on life support once again fighting for his life… So please help us help Ty and his family through any means you can! Please show this LOCAL family that they live in a community that cares!!! See the FOR THE LOVE OF TY face book page about how you can get involved and help!!! Thank you so much.

I thank each and everyone of you that have entered and shared your beautiful story!  Please share this contest as I want to make this a huge success!  xo Stacey
