Kym really is a burst of fresh, warm energy! She just celebrated her 50th birthday and I know most people will be thinking the same as me – ‘tell me her secrets, she looks amazing!”.
To celebrate this milestone Kym decided to treat herself to a new dress and shoes plus have her hair and makeup done for a photoshoot of her and her loved ones. With any milestones in your life I think it’s a great chance to take stock of your life and assess where you’re at, celebrate the things you are grateful for and make small shifts to continue living a more fulfilled life.
Women are such tough critics of themselves, so often the thought of having a photoshoot to celebrate ‘who they are right now’ is like suggesting someone go to the dentist and have teeth pulled for something fun to do. Life passes by too quickly and often most people worry they aren’t thin enough right now, or it would be far to vain to have photos of yourself. But making peace with how you look right now celebrating this through a photoshoot can be an exciting experience.
We aren’t all supermodels, but we are all beautiful in our own way. It is such a cliché, but I often find the most enjoyable people to photograph are the people who are more accepting of who they are rather than someone who might be 18 yrs old, 2 meters tall and a size 6. Sometimes the younger and thinner we are the more insecure we can be, age does have its benefits – growing, learning and accepting can be a beautiful experience. I know I’ve enjoyed my journey so far and I feel more confident with who I am than I did in my teens or twenties.
Kym, thank you for choosing Insight Creative to celebrate ‘you’! Your warmth and love of life shows through in the photos – and honestly being naturally stylish does help!
