Shades of Gray

March 12, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Shades of Gray

 
If you have a shade of gray hair, then I'm looking for you!
 
Gray, silver, white, or anything in the shades of gray.  If your hair color falls into those tones, you might be one of the women that I would like to photograph. For free.
 
I firmly believe that beauty is found in all ages, but our culture has not acknowledged that in the past.  We are beginning to see a change. The beauty in mature women is being recognized today, mostly because these women DECIDED to find and show off their beauty.  Mature women are becoming shamelessly feminine. They are gaining the confidence to show that they are beautiful. Beauty is far less about age than it is about confidence and finding the best way to present yourself.
 
I want to find a few women with gray hair (or some shade of gray) to add to my professional portfolio. I prefer middle aged women or older, but will consider someone younger if you have a gray tone of hair.  If you are selected, I will provide you with a free photo shoot and two retouched digital images from the shoot. All at no cost to you, in exchange for your time in participating in my photography project.
 
To apply, send me a private message here on Facebook. If you don’t have any pictures of yourself on Facebook, then send me a couple of snapshots in your message.

Beware of Baby Boomers

March 11, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Beware of the Baby Boomers! 

 

Every decade the Baby Boomers have redefined their world. so it's not at all surprising that beauty is being redefined for the mature generation. 

 

The breaking market for beauty based photography is the 50+ demographic. Be it fashion or beauty inspired images or boudoir photography, this generation is determined to find their beauty as they mature and show it off. And the right photographers have never been more prepared to make that happen.

 

“Attitude and presence have a lot more to do with someone thinking that you are older than you are.”
~ Baltimore City Councilwoman Helen Holton (54)

Simple is Beautiful

February 19, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

"Simple is beautiful."

I don't know who authored this statement, but I do agree with it. Yet, the inverse may not always be as true. "Beauty is simple." Sometimes it seems that beauty. rather than being simple, is complex and even complicated.

Dr. Jean Robey shared with me today that her young daughter has a sweet happiness about her beauty and her son knows beauty as complicated. How true it is that beauty is different for each person, each subculture and each people group around the world.

Finding your own beauty and being comfortable in your own skin is an individual search that begins early in life and continues throughout life as our body and perspectives change with age. As we mature physically, we have to go back through the process of finding our beauty all over again. And we get to do this many times throughout life. Beauty is a moving target. And some experience an adult-onset of beauty, finding their beauty for the first time later in life.

It's always a nice discovery.

For My Son

 

Give your son a true reflection of womanhood and motherhood.

 
You were the first woman in his life. You framed his understanding of motherhood and womanhood. 
 
When your son sees images of you that show off your beauty, he learns to respect you as a woman, and not just as mom. It helps him  respect all women. He learns that woman are also mothers.
 
Each of these women in these images are mothers of sons. Each were photographed to celebrate their beauty. Now it's your turn.

Your daughter should have images of the beautiful you.

Images that let her see your beauty? Images for her to remember you by and cherish forever? Images that teach her about the beauty to be found in every woman as well as herself. Images that say you can celebrate each other's beauty regardless of what happens in the everyday life that you share?

Each of these women are mothers of daughters. Each were photographed to celebrate their beauty. Now it's your turn. Call Ron Brewer Images today to schedule your session.

Not Everyone Likes Valentine's Day

February 11, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

 

Not everyone looks forward to Valentine's Day.  


And everyone that feels that way has their own reason. Maybe your reason is because you don't feel special. Not beautiful enough. Not enough self-confidence. You don't like the way you look. Are those not your reason? Analyze what your reason is and see if one or more of these aren't really at the base of your feelings. 

If that's where you are, then let's do something towards changing that. Let's find your beauty with images designed to do just that.

Adult Onset of Beauty

February 04, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Adult-Onset of Beauty

An adult-onset of beauty is a condition that affects the physical appearance and emotional state of maturing women. It develops most often in women over the age of 30, but can first occur in women beyond 50 years of age. The condition is rare, but known cases are increasing at a rapid rate as women gain a new consciousness of finding their beauty.

There are no known risk factors. Common symptoms include a increased self-esteem, greater self-confidence, improved relationships, a more satisfying intimate life, and happier spouses.

The cause remains unknown, even though some thought has been given to a virus or other type of infectious agent as a trigger agent. No known proof of such agent exists to date. Most research attributes it to a change in one's belief system about beauty itself and how it relates to the patient.  That is, a change in how they see themselves and a better understanding of the concept of beauty. The effect of this change results in changed behavior, as in attempts to find one's own beauty.

Although some features are similar, adult-onset of beauty is different than onset at younger ages. In difference to common wisdom, you do not have to be 18-25 to look and feel beautiful. 

Contact your photographer if you experience any of the symptoms of adult-onset of beauty to make a record of your new found beauty. If you have already been diagnosed and are having breathing difficulties due to gasping in dis-belief, contact your photographer right away. If you are searching for your beauty and would like assistance in finding it, contact your photographer to schedule a consultation on how to find your adult-onset of beauty in a photography session for beauty, tasteful boudoir, couture glamour or fashion inspired photography session. Find your beauty.

Beauty is More Than Looks and Size.

February 02, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Beauty is more than looks and size. It is presence. It is self awareness. It is self acceptance.

Beauty is present in the NOW. I have long felt that beauty was readily present to be captured at anytime, in anyone. After years of photographing women, I’ve watched so many women hesitate to be photographed. They want to wait, wanting to lose 2 or 20 pounds. But in waiting, they just never get around to being photographed. I wondered if somehow we could find a new way to view ourselves by a compromise of sorts.

With each New Year we feel refreshed and inspired to achieve. We make promises to ourselves to be healthier and fitter and perhaps lose weight.

I want to offer a collaboration in this effort to achieve whatever a woman wants to claim the right to her own beauty. So, I have a new promotion that allows you to set your own goals and have a rewarding end point to reach for. So often we achieve our goals for events like weddings and trips. Why not have a photo shoot booked to launch your success?

Book now for a photo shoot in April, 2015. $100 reserves your date. Between now and April’s photo shoot, you set your goals and you mark the calendar off while you work to achieve your goals. At the end of your journey, come to your shoot to celebrate! And to celebrate with you, I will waive your session fee and give you one free digital image. Plus, the $100 booking fee goes towards any purchase you make!

This is NOT a before and after shoot. This is NOT a plea to “get skinny” and be “more beautiful." You ARE beautiful. This IS a way for you to achieve your personal goals and have me on your side. It’s for you to see, after this journey and whatever it brings, that you are worth capturing in the NOW.

Beauty is more than looks and size. It is presence. It is self awareness. It is self acceptance. I believe you are beautiful NOW. If you need time, let’s book a date in spring that will allow you time, but also provide you a true goal to work towards.

Turn the eye of the beholder to April, 2015.

Age Related Beauty

February 01, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Age Related Beauty

It's no secret that our culture worships youth. And beauty. So as we age, almost everyone feels like they lose their youthful beauty. 

But there is beauty to be found in any age. We just don't often recognize it. Since we believe beauty is only found in youthful ages, we fail to even look for it in those we don't consider youthful. Especially in ourselves. Everyone wants to be beautiful, but deep down we usually give up. We end up taking the approach of just doing the best we can. It's time to change that belief system. Recognize that there IS beauty to be found in whatever age you are. Find your own beauty at 30, 40, 50, 60 and on up. It's exciting to see the trend in the 50+ demographic that are now doing tasteful boudoir and beauty photography sessions.

You can find your beauty. At any age. Believe in yourself. And then others will see it, too.
