Miss L| Evansville, Indiana Photographer

Working with Miss L was such an incredible experience. I know the whole process was something new and out of her comfort zone, but she embraced it fabulously! As soon as we started her session her confidence, strength and self love started to shine. I love how her personality is vibrant in all of the images!

Miss L, you're beautiful inside and out! Thank you so much for allowing me to capture these images and for openly expressing how a Fearlessly Feminine session made you feel! Your "love everyone" mentality is something everyone should aspire to have. It was a pleasure getting to know you and witnessing your tribe shower you with love and support! Nothing makes me happier than seeing a group of best friends building each other up!   

 

I feel excited that these pictures have helped me feel more like a woman.

I feel proud that I went through with the whole process! Totally out of my comfort zone!

I feel vulnerable sharing the pictures, even to my husband. When I first sent the link to him my heart was racing until he finally responded.

I feel angry that I was so nervous about this. I almost didn't go through with it several times. I was just as nervous to see the pictures and there was no reason to be; they came out awesome!

I feel great seeing others' reactions to the photos. I brought two of my best friends to the viewing and they made me feel great about all of them.

I feel confident - Finally! I needed a confidence booster. Becoming a mom changes everything about you, especially your body. I totally needed to see myself in a different way and I'm so glad I did!

I feel most powerful being a mom. I love being a mom and I love watching my daughter grow and learn from the things I am teaching her.

I really admire people who build each other up!

My favorite rule to break is eating ice cream for breakfast with my girl.

My best advice is to love - love everyone and everything! Who has time to be mad and hateful all the time?

To me, being Fearlessly Feminine means to love being you!

Do More, Wear Less Workshop | Evansville Indiana Photographer

The first time I saw Ewan’s work, I was interested, deeply interested. He photographs in a way that’s impossible to casually scroll by. In the social media sea of being over exposed to images, his work makes you feel something right to your core. Whether it's love or hate, he makes you feel. And for me it was immediate love.  

I appreciate your support as my business and style evolve. My goal is less perfection and more passion. To photograph in a way that forces you to feel.

Miss B | Evansville boudoir photography

Miss B was just great to work with!   I love girls willing to get out of their comfort zone!  Miss B did her session as a gift for her man, but i'm so glad she did it for herself too!  Because this girl radiates in front of the camera!  Most of her pictures were reserved for his eyes only, but I'm so happy she decided to share a couple!  I just love this girls baby blues!  

 

This is what Miss B has to say about her session:

"I really enjoyed my fearlessly feminine session and loved the way my photos turned out.  I felt comfortable during the shoot, it was exciting and fun.  The photos showed me how I really look and gave me more confidence .  It's definitely something I'd recommend everyone do at least once in their life!"

Happy Halloween | Fearlessly Feminine

Happy Halloween Fearlessly Feminine babes!  Have your ever considered incorporating a theme into your Fearlessly Feminine Session?  Maybe your man just really loves a clean house so a french maid outfit would be fun!  I know lots of my fearlessly feminine girls love to bring their boots!  And I really love the fringe outfit below to go with them!  Your Fearlessly Feminine Session should be a really fun representation of you! 

Love YOU: Monday Mantra | Fearlessly Feminine

I feel like learning to love yourself and letting that be enough is one of the hardest things to accomplish.  But once you figure it out its much harder for other people to bring you down.  No one can dim your light when you're not relying on anyone else for it to shine.  Know your heart, invest in yourself and find what makes you happy.  The most important relationship you have is the one with yourself.  

Miss Emily | Fearlessly Feminine Friday

I love a girl that is all about focusing her Fearlessly Feminine session on celebrating herself!  What a beautiful time in your life to document!  I love my 20's and I love other fearlessly feminine babes that know how to embrace theirs!  Emily is a runner and works super hard! I had a great time taking her portraits! 

This is what Emily had to say about her session

"I had the best time getting my pictures taken!  Alisha made me feel so comfortable with myself and she just made me feel absolutely beautiful.  My pictures were amazing!  She is so talented and so professional!"

Have to Courage to Ask | Monday Mantra

Have the courage to ask for what you want!  I know this seems so basic but when I really took this to heart it opened a lot of doors for me.  I mean the worst someone can say is no!  But so many times people say yes and it leads to amazing things you'd never had, unless you had the courage to ask!  Just make sure when you're asking for things, you're also giving an equal amount or more in return!  Be grateful for the people that take chances on you as you chase your dreams!  

What if you fly | Monday Mantra

Don't ever let fear stop you from doing amazing things.  From where i'm standing i'd rather fail than never try.  Take a risk this week Fearlessly Feminine babes!  Start a business, tell someone you love them, share or begin writing a blog.  Whatever it is just do something that scares you!      Overcome the fear and give yourself a chance to soar.  

Bridal | How to Wear it Wednesday

Some of my favorite Fearlessly Feminine sessions are spent with brides celebrating their upcoming weddings!  My brides love these sessions because not only is a great gift for their groom but it's an amazing experience for them.  In the spirt of that were talking about bridal lingerie!  

For Bridal I love little lace details! Body suits and rompers are a great way to start the session.  I love all these flirty pieces.  Details are important so make sure that your engagement ring is shining bright!  I also love the midi ring and high waisted trend this year. Either would make a great addition to a 2014 fearlessly feminine session!

These fancy white bra and panty sets are amazing and sure to make you feel glamorous!  This is also a great day to break in your wedding shoes.  Many brides buy special heels for their big day!  Bring them along and we'll show them off without the dress hiding your feet!

Lady in the Water | Fearlessly Feminine Boudoir

I’ve been in the dark, been damaged

Thought I’d never feel passion again

But haven’t we all

I was searching for perfection then

For a worth or love that was definite

Less vulnerable than it is to validate yourself

A coward to redemption

Now I feel I am bearing witness to a whole gender

Finding no fault in their own skin

I want to walk beside beauty discovering itself

I want to ache with humanness

To feel insignificant

I want to feel only water clinging to me and

Make my peace with all the ripples in it

My reflection as a conduit
One has to nearly drown to gain the boldness to be raw

The most saturated beauty emerges in the wake of

One learning to love themselves fiercely

-Madison



Monday Mantra: This is your dream

Thisisyourdream.jpg


Sometimes it's hard to be motivated on cloudy Monday. Then I remember that I today I got to wake up and work on something I am passionate about. I get to continue building a career I love. I get to work with smart, beautiful, inspiring women. I get to make things that were previously out of my comfort zone part of my beautiful life. Sure, the long list of things I have to accomplish today is daunting, but when I'm done I'll have achieved a little bit more of my dreams.

Monday Mantra: Show up. Give it all you got. This is your dream, kid.


 

Miss H: Fearlessly Feminine Boudoir

Miss H is a total babe!  I had so much fun with her during her session!  I'm so thankful to Paparazzi: Glamour and Gowns for helping me pull amazing dresses for her.  They have amazing vision based entirely off of a picture of Miss H.   My favorite dresses are easily the gold and the pink!  This woman sparkles from the inside out!  

This is what Miss H had to say about her Fearlessly Feminine experience: 

"My husband has always talked about me doing a boudoir session and once I found out Alisha had started taking them I knew I had to book with her!  I had such an amazing experience with her during the session.  I was about to do my shoot with a friend, so that definitely helped my nerves.  But Alisha and her team definitely set my mind at ease.  They made me look absolutely stunning and Alisha made me feel that way throughout the whole process. I remember going to choose photos and feeling nervous, hoping at least a few pictures turned out and when I sat down my mind was blown! I looked like such a babe, I had a hard time choosing!  I would recommend everyone having Alisha take your beauty and boudoir photos.  I promise you won't regret it and your husband will love them!"

Look fierce in Black | How to Wear it Wednesday

I get lots of questions from clients about what they should wear for their sessions and with all the options out there I understand how it can be overwhelming.  This will be the first post of many on this topic so I figured we'd start with lots of black options for all different body types.  I want all my clients to wear what they love and choose things that make them feel beautiful!  But, Its really important to dress for your body type.  Know the areas you love about yourself and highlight them! 

I love beautiful sheer robes with nothing on underneath!  They look great in front of a sunny windows.  Shape-wear that hugs all your curves just right look amazing on camera!  Feeling fun? Pair pantyhose with rockin' heels and a really amazing bra!

Baby Steps: Workout Wednesday | Fearlessly Feminine Boudoir

Sometimes getting to the gym and getting a workout in seems like a daunting task. We all have busy lives and are trying to prepare for the next big thing. Being a gym rat isn't always necessary to get in shape. My biggest philosophy with health and wellness is that little steps make biggest impacts. SO instead of trying to make yourself get to the gym multiple times a week for hours on end, try some of my little tips. 

First off, TAKE THE STAIRS! Taking the stairs isn't going to change your life, but it will burn 5x the amount of calories that taking the elevator does. Again, like I mentioned before, small steps, make big changes.

Secondly, try adding a 10 minute workout to your daily routine. Mix about 3-4 different simple moves together to get a nice little workout to get your rear in gear (get it?). Simple moves can consist of squats, crunches, jumping jacks, wall push ups, or planks. Anything that gets you moving without using too much equipment. Adding in this 10 minute workout 3-4 times a week will help you burn extra calories all week long. Losing weight is a basic science of calories in versus calories out.

Just remember food should be consumed in moderation (especially the bad stuff). By adding in small changes in your life you will burn more and more calories which helps add in losing weight! If you have the time get out there and get your workouts in, but time should never be an excuse to help you get more fit. Remember your body is your own, and if you don't take care of it, where will you live?!

Monday Mantra: Wishbone vs. Backbone

Create a life you want.  Take a risk.  Dare to dream a little bigger.  Stop wishing and start making your beautiful dreams a reality. 

This quote always makes me feel fierce and driven.  Which is a great way to kick off the week!  Live fearless and fabulous ladies! 

Miss E | Fearlessly Feminine Evansville Boudoir Photography

Miss E is someone very special to me!  She's beautiful inside and out.  I had the privilege of photographing her and her fiance's engagement session and I'm so excited to photograph their wedding in 2015!  I love when brides decide to celebrate this time in their life with beauty and boudoir portraits.     

But enough about what I love, this is what Miss E had to say about her beauty and boudoir experience:

"When I first got to my session I was super nervous but Alisha made me feel really comfortable and her hair and makeup team made me look beautiful!  By the end of the day the nerves were totally gone and I was incredibly happy with my pictures.  I love the experience and i recommend that if you get a chance to take pictures with Alisha, you do!"
