The story of “Cinderella” is a Disney classic that tells of a girl living through unfortunate circumstances, and one day it all changes into a dream come true.
By: Michelle Lockwood
Some may say that I have lived my own “Cinderella” life. Foster homes, broken families, an abusive boyfriend in my 20s, and constantly being abandoned like I wasn’t “Good Enough”. This is my life, and I don’t cry over it. Like Cinderella, I choose to see the positive and smile every day (though I draw the line at talking to and dressing up little mice).
However, my past DOES affect me. Deep deep down where nobody can see, there will forever be that little girl who just wants to be loved & appreciated. Unconditionally. Always.
((( UGH ))) That was tough to write.
Cinderella lived her life in rags and soot covered hair. I lived mine with frizzy hair and coke-bottle glasses.
Needless to say, I was NOT the most popular girl in high school.
Fast forward twenty-plus years. The world sees a different Michelle, one with contact lenses, stylish clothing and a suit of armour that I call CONFIDENCE (the wild ‘n crazy hair is still a curse that I tackle daily, with the help of anti-frizz products). But every morning when I look in the mirror…..it’s that insecure, nerdy little girl that looks back at me.
Boudoir Photo Shoot!
The transformation is amazing. In under 2 hours, CB and her team did this……
…hair extensions, eyelashes, smoky eye make-up….the results made me GASP in surprise. Eva’s lens and artistic eye captured it forever.
Never in my life have I ever truly believed that I was beautiful. How could I? That little girl deep down inside has whispered the opposite to me, daily.
Today I have something to
tell YELL to that little girl inside.
I. Am. Beautiful.
My story also has a Prince Charming! I met mine at the age of 25, married him at 29, and later gave birth to our 2 beautiful children. Every day I thank heaven for this man. He loves me. He appreciates me. He knows that I am beautiful.
And now, I know it too.
This was an experience that EVERY woman
can should try. Whether you need to prove something to your own little voice from deep deep down, or just want to capture the beauty you already KNOW exists, a BOUDOIR PHOTO SHOOTis the answer. Talk to Eva and CB about their Boudoir Package and set up your own CINDERELLA MOMENT!
