One Image Wednesday- Color Coordination

We love to match the bed to your boudoir look! This Bella brought her teal wedding shoes and wore this gorgeous light pink bodysuit. Combine these colors and match for her hair, eyes, and skin, and wow! This photo was taken with our above-the-bed camera to show how everything came together. It’s all about coordinating the colors to take your boudoir photos to the next level… something that just plain white sheets can’t do.

Faces of mellBella

Who are the women that we photograph at mellBella? They are women just like you. 

Women with kids. Women without kids. Women battling infertility or miscarriages. Women in a great relationship. Women who got out of an abusive relationship. Women not in a relationship. Women about to get married. Women celebrating an anniversary. Women no longer married. Women who have never been married. Women celebrating goals or their birthdays. Women who need a break. Women who need to feel beautiful inside and out. Women who volunteer. Women who don’t take care of themselves because they are too busy taking care of others. Women caring for sick or dying family members.  Women who have lost weight. Women who have gained weight. Women whose bodies have changed with health or life in general. Women fighting or have fought depression, post partum, eating disorders, diabetes, cancer, and so many more difficulties.

Women with stretch marks, cellulite, age spots, wrinkles, big breasts, small or no breasts, tall, short,  thick hair, thinning hair, and everything inbetween. Women of different ages, races, sizes, and shapes.  Stay-at-home moms. Working mothers. Professional women. Military. First Responders. Strong women.  Strong women who feel weak. Awkward women. Silly women. Women who want to feel valued. Women who want to feel good about themselves. Women who come to our studio just as they are with the hopes of liking 1 or 2 photos of themselves for the first time in their lives. Women who generally like photos of themselves. Women who give and give and give some more. Women who want to show that they’ve still got it.

But one of the things that connects them all is that ALL women are beautiful. Women who are beautiful but don’t know it. Women who are beautiful inside and out. Women who want to see the beauty that others see in them. These women are just like you.

So, here’s to you, Bella. Thank you for everything that you are despite the struggles you are facing. Thank you for your trust in us. We love you!

LuLa Roe Fundraiser to Benefit the Center for Women

Back in February of this year, we got to help celebrate, fund raise, and support local women. We stepped out of our studio photographed the dance floor, silent auction, and fashion show. The theme was Fashion through the Decades.  ALL proceeds went directly to the Center for Women.  The Center for Women advocates and educates South Carolina women to help them succeed in their professional, community, and personal lives. They have training workshops, networking opportunities, mentoring programs, and so much more. Check them out!

Around 60 local and traveling LuLa Roe consultants came together to donate their time and money for this awesome cause. Each consultation even donated an entire outfit for the Silent Auction, and several companies donated gift certificates, food, service, time, and awesome additions to the complete each LuLa Roe outfit.

Thank you to all the companies and individuals for your donations and time that raised a total of $7,707 for the Center for Women.
