Strong Women Breathe Fire

Woman finds power and love inside herself through empowerment photoshoot

awesome fire creative photoshoot near me.jpg

   After years of struggling with self image Betsy was finally ready to celebrate who she is and who's she's been her entire life through an AJBC Photography photoshoot.
   She expressed how for years she felt the pressure of how she was supposed to look, what she was supposed to do, the type of mom she was supposed to be raising kids, that restricting and guilty feeling of not being what other people think is right.
   When in all reality the BEST part of Betsy, and other women who are unafraid to be unapologetically who they are, is that she made a CHOICE in her life instead of following the herd of sheep, and a lot of people can’t understand that.

I so understand that.

In fact, I live for that.

Here's Betsy's visual representation of letting go, breaking free, and finally believing in herself, exactly the way she is. Burning societies rules of beauty and perfection to the ground.

Anchor Bay Senior Photographer- Photo Shoot

Anchor Bay Senior Photographer- Photo Shoot

BoHo Michigan Senior Photoshoot

Outdoor, Natural Beauty Shoot

chic senior style michigan beauty photographer.jpg

   Anchor Bay High School is a long ways from our little town of Burtchvillr, but Jessica still made the drive to get photographed by us at AJBC Photography! Thank goodness because I would be jealous of any other photographer that got to capture those mysterious eyes! You’ll see what I mean when you scroll down.
   When Jessica was planning her Senior Photoshoot with us in the studio she just kept saying the word “golden.” She wanted her Senior Portraits to be warm, full of sunshine. Who doesn’t love that look? So we scheduled the 4 outfit photoshoot for later in the day, when we would catch that golden hour.
   We started by showing off her creative side and all of her talents. Not only did she come with her own make up done (totally flawless) she also draws, does photography (she even booked a few of her own Senior Shoots this year) and is musically gifted. Seriously... share some of those talents!
   Next... to the bean field! And a ditch... Yes, you read both of those right. Magic, I know. This field was just a visual replica of the yellow brick road. We actually referred to it as the yellow bean road. It’s so refreshing having open minded people like Jessica and her mom create with us! They totally embraced this look and the adventure that goes with it... barefoot, in a dress, on the dirt backroads, in front of a farmer’s bean field, or crawling 3 feet down into a muddy ditch because you know that color and her blonde hair and her perfect fair skin is just going to harmonize beautifully together. God, I love the beauty in the unexpected!
   Next we snuck in to the back of an apple orchard, parking behind trees off the side of a dusty road, to hide from the crowds and do our own things. The sun just wrapped around Jessica as she sat soaking up the rays. We fanned out her hair for some shots and then... those eyes. Seriously unbelievable! It’s moments like these us photographers have to peel ourselves away from the camera and admit there’s more to do, but you really don’t want to- you just want to keep photographing!!
   Lastly we drove to the shores of Lake Huron in Lexington to watch the sun sink behind the trees and reflect off the calm water. Jessica gracefully balanced on big rocks, danced in the sand, and went from this sweet young girl to this fashion model all within this one photoshoot.

Her sweet smile when she laughed reminded you she was still just a young girl in school. Those eyes and that mature attitude reminded you she wasn’t far away from being an adult either. And that’s what these Senior Experiences are all about.
   Capture the beauty of both worlds in a magical way while they're still here.

My Animal Instincts.

Empowerment Project. Self expression

port huron michigan fall photoshoot.jpg

The serpent came up and whispered softly in my ear,
"Have you heard? They're out to control you, my dear."

No fruit sweet enough to make me give in,
So right then and there I created my own sin.
And they looked down and shuttered at the thought.
"This freedom, these animals! What will we do with this lot?"

Burn us, cage us, hell, even fucking hope rape us.
Bruises, cuts, thorns, lashes.
We don't need your hope when we have our passions.

They threw me off the boat, told me it was time to swim.
Oh, but what you don't know, is I know how to control the wind.
I can block out the storm or create my own.
Flood this land, but my heart is my home.

I feel my heart race under my breast, under it's cage.
I feel my teeth grind over where my tongue has been laid.
Kick my bare feet, grip with my hands
That urge to become your human I'll never understand.

I am a warrior, I am a wild animal.
I was born naked, I was born to fight battles.

Paint my body black with the soot of your damned.
I see you meant now they were the ones who could stand
on their own two feet,
up for what they believe.
The damned were those who were not shaped ever so easily.

But me, I wear this snake as a necklace.
Me, I'm not afraid to eat your sinful fruit for breakfast.

I apply my war paint with just one finger.
I ask you watch it carefully, as it's a signal

I don't fear your opinion of me.  
Now call in your troops, I think you're going to need a bigger army.

I use Photography as a way to express myself and work through inner struggles. It's a way for me to process and let go of situations and emotions. I also hope they inspire others to let go and tell their own story in a powerful and artistic way.
