This mother and daughter had the most stunning eyes ever! I have known Tarah <span class="amp">&amp;</span> Cathy ever since I was a child. Cathy was my mother&#8217;s best friend her whole life so needless to say she knows all of my deep dark secrets hehe! Now when I am missing my mom and the world gets to be too much I know that Cathy is always there for me, with a piece of mom too. I love them so much and I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to photograph them&nbsp;together!!</p> <p>It took me awhile to convince Mom that we needed to do this shoot, but in the end she was so happy that we did it! Now she has some awesome images to share with family here at Christmas and will always cherish these&nbsp;photos!&nbsp;</p> <p>Can you belive that there are so many mothers and daughters who never get the chance to do a shoot together? I challenge you all to <span class="caps">EXIST</span> <span class="caps">IN</span> <span class="caps">PHOTOS</span>!! One day your children will look for photos of you and will cherish every single one that they find. I dont care what negative thoughts you have about yourself!!! You <span class="caps">NEED</span> to <span class="caps">EXIST</span> in <span class="caps">PHOTOS</span> for you and for your family. Memories are not deifned by what you look&nbsp;like!!&nbsp;</p> <p>Ok end of&nbsp;rant&#8230;enjoy!&nbsp;</p> <p>Special thanks goes out to <a href="http://www.makeupbyjamieb.com%20/">Jamie B Makeup</a> and Laura Reum for Hair and to <a href="http://www.smallindulgencesdayspa.com/">Small Indulgences</a> for&nbsp;hosting!&nbsp;</p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2014/10/14/large_2e837add4f44a8c3bf5c.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2014/10/14/large_81a747e7ee275063fcef.jpg" style="line-height: 18.2000007629395px;" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2014/10/14/large_aae7e8d2c75f50f9cc9b.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2014/10/14/large_60cdec982a559fc881e3.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2014/10/14/large_f9b187afac59d374fc6b.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2014/10/14/large_57115eb2ecbbdbbcb278.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2014/10/14/large_629c18e1e8c4f0cd45bb.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2014/10/14/large_a5176b578007688c8030.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2014/10/14/large_cf0db466f9f945cfa4f9.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2014/10/14/large_3fea95228b0a2a500519.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2014/10/14/large_03ddf67f3661caa8126c.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2014/10/14/large_3e1e63149258b79979a5.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2014/10/14/large_3d4a99a849224ec17a13.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2014/10/14/large_44b3cbcf516924047fe4.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2014/10/14/large_1b2ffaf405676398f821.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2014/10/14/large_f1dad6a4e6ece3905112.jpg" /></p> <p><img src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2014/10/14/large_3e40bf51fea1916e9de8.jpg" /></p> <p>Contact me today if you are interested in having your Family photos&nbsp;done!!&nbsp;</p> <p>XoXo</p> <p>Nicole&nbsp;</p> Thu, 16 Oct 2014 18:33:00 +0000http://admyarphotography.myfotojournal.com/2014/oct/16/give-post-title/Carol's Stunning Flower & Light Filled Glamour Session at Small Indulgences Salon & Spahttp://admyarphotography.myfotojournal.com/2014/sep/30/carols-stunning-flower-light-filled-glamour-session-small-indulgences-salon-spa/<p>Hello&nbsp;Everyone!&nbsp;</p> <p>Carol was the winner from our most recent giveaway!

padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;"><span style="line-height: 1.4;">Can you make me thinner? It&rsquo;s a question I get daily. It is a constant worry for potential clients and, as a woman, I absolutely understand! Every woman&rsquo;s personal body image is uniquely her own and I am going to try not to generalize too much here but here it&nbsp;goes:</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;">Can I? <span class="caps">YES</span>! I <span class="caps">CAN</span> make you thinner. I can take off 5 pounds, or 10, or 20&hellip; or 30 or more. I have been retouching professionally for many years and I treat the editing process as an art form. I have the technical proficiency to reshape your body in almost any way you can&nbsp;imagine!</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;"><img class="fj-Photo fj-large" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.myfotojournal.com/blogs/admyarphotography/photos/2013/06/04/large_75dfe8b54c3ab3955c9c.jpg" alt="Bachelorette Boudoir jacksonville florida -5.jpg" title="Bachelorette Boudoir jacksonville florida -5.jpg" /></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;">Will I? <span class="caps">IT</span> <span class="caps">DEPENDS</span>! Simply put, I do what you ask to create the photos <span class="caps">YOU</span> envision! These are your photos, your art that you are entrusting me to create for you. Your experience with my studio is one of close collaboration and communication. My one and only concern is that you are thrilled with your final images. I do what I do because it is my passion to show my clients the beauty inside themselves! I hate that so many women go a lifetime without seeing themselves as beautiful. I hate the pressure society puts on us to fit in the standard &ldquo;box&rdquo; of beauty. I think it is unfair to reserve the photoshoot experience for only models and celebrities. Each of us deserves to be pampered. We all deserve to feel&nbsp;beautiful!</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;">I treat every photo as an individual work of art. Every image receives the care, time and attention that I would give to a canvas hanging in an art gallery. This begins from the moment each image is created. Lighting is carefully considered to portray the look and feel that you envision, from pinup to boudoir to Old Hollywood glamour to editorial lingerie looks. Wardrobe is carefully chosen and fitted to be flawless. I&rsquo;ll guide you through your session and help you achieve the best expressions and poses. When your session is complete and the editing begins I will smooth skin, slim tummies, remove arm creases and show you at your absolute best. I will only enhance your photos to your comfort level, which is something that we will discuss during your&nbsp;appointment.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;">There is a list of things I always fix.&nbsp;<span style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold; font-style: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline;">Excluding specific requests of a client, I always edit the&nbsp;following:</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;"><span style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold; font-style: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline;">Skin</span>&nbsp;- I always soften and smooth the skin in some way. This varies depending on the genre. Pinup? Perfect, porcelain skin. Glamour? You&rsquo;ll have that sexy glow-from-within. Boudoir? Natural, soft texture and flawless appeal. Head shots? Very natural, true to life texture that looks positively&nbsp;radiant!</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;"><span style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold; font-style: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline;">Blemishes&nbsp;</span>- I define a blemish as anything temporary. If it will heal or go away (zits, acne, cuts, scrapes, scratches) then I remove&nbsp;it.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;"><span style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold; font-style: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline;">Bruises</span>&nbsp;- Bumped your leg on a chair and got a bruise? It will&nbsp;disappear.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;"><span style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold; font-style: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline;">Cellulite</span>&nbsp;- Whether on behinds, thighs or elsewhere&hellip; there won&rsquo;t be any trace of it when we&rsquo;re&nbsp;done.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;"><span style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold; font-style: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline;">Stretch Marks</span>&nbsp;- Yes, they are badges of honor. I have more than I can count. Do I want to look at them in photos of myself&hellip; not really. They go,&nbsp;too.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;"><span style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold; font-style: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline;">Makeup Mishaps</span>&nbsp;- The corner of your false eyelashes lifted? Fixed. Some mascara flakes on your cheeks? Poof. Gone. Lipstick strayed? I&rsquo;ll fix&nbsp;it.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;"><span style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold; font-style: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline;">Belly Creases</span>&nbsp;- Some poses are just cute and it&rsquo;s worth the crease&hellip; so it will be smoothed and you&rsquo;ll never even know it was&nbsp;there.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;">Then there is the list of things that are part of the discussion with you, the client. This&nbsp;includes:</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;"><span style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold; font-style: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline;">Wrinkles <span class="amp">&amp;</span> Fine Lines</span>&nbsp;- I soften wrinkles and remove some as a general rule. I won&rsquo;t make you look 20 if you&rsquo;re 50 (but I can if you want me to) and I try to keep skin work very natural. You don&rsquo;t want someone you know to look at your photo and see painfully obvious editing. Obviously, a professional makeup application goes a <span class="caps">LONG</span> way on this&nbsp;one.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;"><span style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold; font-style: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline;">Beauty Marks and Birth Marks</span>&nbsp;- I <span class="caps">LOVE</span> beauty marks and birthmarks! They are unique and make you stand out! However, I respect that you might not agree so I&rsquo;m happy to handle them in any way you&nbsp;prefer.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;"><span style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold; font-style: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline;">Scars</span>&nbsp;- Many scars are badges of honor but they are also very personal. I have a scar on my shin from poor planning on rollerblades in my teens&hellip; and another from running my brother&rsquo;s dirt bike into a stone wall. Am I proud of them&hellip; sure. Would I edit them out on myself&hellip; probably. On the other hand, I&rsquo;ve worked with a number of cancer survivors who are very proud of their scars! This is something we will talk about and the choice is yours. Be aware that I can remove even the most significant scaring in most cases (tummy tucks, cesarean scars, scars from full body lifts) so please don&rsquo;t hesitate to ask before you book your appointment if you have concerns about larger&nbsp;scars.</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;"><span style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold; font-style: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline;">Freckles</span>&nbsp;- I can remove (or soften/fade) them if you ask&hellip; but I might cry&hellip; because I <span class="caps">ADORE</span>&nbsp;freckles!</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;"><span style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-weight: bold; font-style: inherit; font-family: inherit; vertical-align: baseline;">Body Reshaping&nbsp;</span>- This is something that I do on most clients sparingly. I often do some minor reshaping when it is warranted. Generally, it isn&rsquo;t even noticeable. A little nip in at the waist, a bit of tummy flattening, slimming the thighs or upper arms is very typical. I am also happy to do more than that upon request. I really can take off 5, 10, 15, 20 pounds and beyond&hellip; but I do like to strike a balance between reality and perfection. Why? Because every woman <span class="caps">IS</span> beautiful and I love curves! We will pose you to flatter your body type, whether you are a size 00, 8, 12, 22 or 28. You want to be the best version of yourself, whether you are athletic, slender, curvy, voluptuous or something in between&hellip; but you still want to be&nbsp;<span class="caps">YOU</span>!</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;">Love <span class="amp">&amp;</span>&nbsp;Light</p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 1.2em; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 12px; font-family: 'Lucida Grande', 'Lucida Sans Unicode', Tahoma, Verdana, sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: #514d4d; line-height: 18px;">Nicole</p> Mon, 11 Aug 2014 20:06:20 +0000http://admyarphotography.myfotojournal.com/2014/aug/11/can-you-make-me-thinner/What is Admyar Photography all about?

In today&rsquo;s society it&rsquo;s easy to feel this way when we&rsquo;re comparing ourselves to overly photo shopped women in bikini magazines. I&rsquo;m here to tell you I don&rsquo;t want you to lose those 10 pounds before your shoot. I don&rsquo;t want you to think about everything you&rsquo;re hoping to hide in your photos. I want you to simply show up with three outfits and a trust in me. Let me take care of the rest. Let me show you how beautiful you are right here in this very moment.<br /><br />It&rsquo;s not about how you<em><strong>&nbsp;look</strong></em>&nbsp;but rather how you&nbsp;<em><strong>feel</strong></em>&nbsp;about the way you look.<br /><br />Confidence is truly a beautiful thing. Confidence is what we all need. Confidence, self acceptance <span class="amp">&amp;</span> personality is what I bring out in the women I photograph. I need you to know you&rsquo;re perfect now. It is my job to coach <span class="amp">&amp;</span> find the model within you that I know is there.<br /><br />Some of us forget what it&rsquo;s like to feel beautiful and strong along the way. We get too busy with our lives, our family <span class="amp">&amp;</span> our job.<br /><br />This experience is for you to feel that again&hellip;because you truly are perfect right now.</div> <div style="color: #000000; font-family: Helvetica; line-height: normal;">&nbsp;</div> <div style="color: #000000; font-family: Helvetica; line-height: normal;">&nbsp;</div> <h2 style="color: #000000; font-family: Helvetica; line-height: normal;"><span style="color: #339999; font-size: x-large;"><a href="http://admyarboudoir.weebly.com/the-experience.html"><span class="caps">LEARN</span> <span class="caps">ABOUT</span> <span class="caps">THE</span> <span class="caps">ADMYAR</span>&nbsp;<span class="caps">EXPERIENCE</span></a></span></h2> <p><span style="color: #339999; font-size: x-large;">XoXo</span></p> <p><span style="color: #339999; font-size: x-large;">Nicole</span></p> Wed, 06 Aug 2014 14:14:00 +0000http://admyarphotography.myfotojournal.com/2014/aug/06/what-admyar-photography-all-about-mission-statement-glamour-boudoir-and-fashion-photography-st-augustine-fl/Artist Collaboration - Bollywood Inspired Photoshoot Summer 2014 - Matanzas Inlet Fl http://admyarphotography.myfotojournal.com/2014/jul/21/artist-collaboration-bollywood-inspired-photoshoot-summer-2014-matanzas-inlet-fl/<p class="p1">This shoot was just an absolute blast.
