I am Lesley Frank with Lesley Veronika Photography. As a Wilmington NC family photographer, it’s my personal mission to make you feel beautiful. It is my job to make you have the courage and confidence to get your portraits taken with your beautiful family. Because you see, as a women, I am one of the “strange” ones. I’ve always considered myself beautiful and have always had, for the most part, a positive body image, even after I had a baby. I am not telling you this to make you feel bad about yourself. Because you see, there are A LOT of women in my life who have felt the exact opposite. Women that are my family and friends. It makes my heart sad and it makes me MAD that this way of thinking is the norm.
Unfortunately, A LOT of women feel this way, they feel they are not pretty enough, not skinny enough, not whatever enough. I can’t even tell you how many times I have heard from my clients, I am not photogenic, I’ve gained weight, I don’t feel beautiful enough to have my photo taken. But you see, your children know you are beautiful, no matter what color your eyes are, no matter how much weight you’ve put on, no matter what. That is where I come in. I am here to lift you up, to make you look at yourself the way your children do, with the utmost appreciation and love. Do you want to look back 40 years from now and realize you don’t have a single photo of yourself with your beautiful family? I didn’t think so.
