Breaking Societal Rules to be self confident & love yourself | Madison headshot photographer | Madison portrait photography | Madison Boudoir photography

Miriam Bulcher

I’m not suggestion you go break the law, that’s not the type of rules we are talking about right now.

how to be confident, madison boudoir photogrpahy

Have you ever asked yourself why it is that slimmer girls appear to get more likes and more popular faster on social media?

Have you ever asked yourself why as moms we think we have to do all these things that other moms are doing in order to be a “good mom”?

Have you ever asked yourself why you feel like crap after you go on social media?

It’s time to put a stop to being compared, feeling lesser than, feeling like an outcast because of your body type. Say F it to ALL OF IT and let’s get empowered together.

I started reading the book “Braving the wilderness” by Brene Brown last week and boy, it’s summarized what I’ve been trying to accomplish over the last year.

Why am I me? What does being me even mean? What is my mission in life? What am I suppose to share with others and how am I supposed to help others? How do I be me without letting fear and anxiety of become that amazing person take over?

We as humans are afraid of change, even if that change means that the most amazing things in our world are going to happen. Why can’t we be like little kids and just go for it so fast without stopping and thinking about it for years?

I’m suggesting that you envision that person you know in your gut you are called to be, all anxiety and mental health aside, what calls to you? What does that person look like? Forget body types, let’s talk about your passions, your talents, how YOU want to help other people. Focus on it so much that all else doesn’t seem as scary. The desire to be confident, to be that amazing person should trump any fear and anxiety you have (if it doesn’t yet, don’t worry, it takes time)

Take small steps, you must get outside of your comfort zone in order to be this amazing person, great things don’t come without some form of discomfort. Discomfort is not a bad thing!

I hope that this words today help you in some way, I hope that they inspire you to be amazing person you’re called to be. Reach inside your soul, listen and jump. Do that every single day.

You need to ask your wedding photographer how they store your photos | Madison Wedding Photographer | Wedding Photography TIps

Miriam Bulcher

It’s a crucial and very necessary question.

Yet, probably one you wouldn’t have thought to ask but I’m here to help! I had a situation come up recently where I had to go back into my archives and get photos for clients, ones that were not delivered.

I’ve heard too many horror stories from other friends, acquaintainces and clients friends about wedding photographers and I really want to eliminate any of those scenarios happening to you, which is why I am bringing you this video today!

Storage is a huge part of a photographer’s life .It’s expensive, but SO NECESSARY. Especially because I warranty my clients their photos for life and for the “just in case” terrible scenarios that nobody wants to happen but do happen sometimes. Watch for more information on why you should be asking your wedding photographer at the consultation, how they handle storing photos.

I hope this helps all brides who haven’t booked their photographer yet and are currently in consultations with photographers. I personally think this is one of the most important questions you could ask in a consultation!

My husband and I are currently booking 2020 weddings! If you are looking for a wedding photographer in Madison or for a destination wedding, give us a call! 608-622-7752!

Julie Pillard Mother & Daughter Portrait Session | Madison Family Photography | Madison headshot photographer

A beautiful mother daughter portrait session

Julie has been following me for a while on my facebook and reached out to me in November when I had a black friday special. She really wanted to do photos not just for herself but for her daughter too! She wanted to create some beautiful memories that she could share with her daughter not just now, but for forever and pass them onto her as a momento. She was excited to make a day trip to Madison from the Quad Cities and spend some quality time with her daughter at my photo studio.

Julie was especially excited for the professional hair and makeup, it’s included with each session so that you feel pampered and good about yourself, cause it shows in the photographs! Whenever a client is so excited for their hair and makeup it makes me even more excited too, there can never be enough joy for getting your photos taken!

After hair and makeup we looked at wardrobe, Julie brought a few things with her from home but she was really interested in my studio wardrobe. After digging around she decided on a GORGEOUS green dress that fit her perfectly and made her photos look so amazing!

Thank you so much Julie for choosing me to photograph you and your beautiful daughter!

How to decide on a wedding photographer | Madison Wedding Photography | Milwaukee wedding photography

Miriam Bulcher

It’s engagement season and if you’ve done a google search for wedding photographers lately your anxiety is probably through the roof. I get it, totally. When I was looking for our wedding photographer I was so frustrated I actually gave up and it was my husband that found our photographer, ironically enough! It makes perfect sense when I think back about it because he’s the more patient one out of the two of us so of course he had the patience to go through all the links on google at the time.

Lucy Haug Boudoir & Headshot session | Madison Headshot Photographer | Madison Portrait Photography

Miriam Bulcher

Such an incredible soul.

boudoir photography madison wisconsin

Lucy booked a boudoir session and when we talked on the phone, she said she wanted to do something for herself as she hadn’t done anything like this in years. She also said she wanted me to photographer her the way I envsioned as an artist. Such warming words for my heart because that is the goal, to trust the person who is photographing you.

I was in awe when Lucy came in because she has such an energy about her, she is an incredible confident woman and you can feel that when you speak with her. She has been apart of the Madison Opera for years and needless to say, it was my honour to do her makeup and photograph her. Especially on someone who has had their makeup done so many times.

We went through a variety of outfits and all I can say is wow, I am beyond lucky that I get to photograph such incredible women. I hope you can see her strength through these photos, just as I did when I met her!

Miriam is absolutely lovely to work with. She’s a true professional who knows exactly what she’s doing. You get a full makeover, so she is putting a lot of work into your session. Meanwhile, you’re conversing and not even noticing the talent that goes into all of this...until you see your photos! That’s when you find yourself floored because you had no idea you could look that good on camera. And, at the same time, it’s still YOU. She nailed it and I’m so happy with my photos!
