Sunshine Coast Photographer Gives Women the Gift of Self Esteem
There are times when maintaining healthy levels of good self-esteem can be tricky for a woman. With photoshopped models making up the majority of images in women’s magazines, it’s not difficult to see why ‘ordinary’ women may feel self-conscious of their own style, shape and look; they have a tendency to compare themselves with these ‘ideal’ women in the media which generally increases their own sense of inadequacy or dissatisfaction.
When women become mothers, their focus changes, and tends to shift towards their family. In the midst of it all, they get lost in family photographs since they are often the one behind the lens, taking pictures of their children. During this transition, women no longer concentrate on their own looks or putting themselves first; her sense of self-worth lies in acceptance from her children and family, and she becomes her own worst critic, usually resulting in feelings of lowered self-esteem and confidence.
Sunshine Coast photographer Paula Brennan dedicates her time and work to helping women rediscover their own self-worth, and encouraging them to feel empowered by offering the glamour tools to look beautiful, but more importantly feel beautiful. www.paulabrennan.com.au
“Mothers are hardly in their family’s story or history anymore, because they don’t think of themselves as important in photographs, or they’re so self-conscious about how their bodies feel that they don’t want to document how they look anymore,” says Sunshine Coast photographer, Paula Brennan. “Photographs around the house tend to be of the mother when she was younger and feeling more beautiful and confident, or the partner and children, because the mum is behind the lens. I want to see women exist in their families through photographs.”
Paula Brennan says seeing women ‘exist’ in photo albums is the undercurrent of everything that she does. To create more opportunities for women to be present, she provides brides-to-be with a chance to begin the family photo album through a Sunshine Coast hen’s party package. This package includes pampering with a luxury hair and make-up makeover and a glamourous photoshoot experience. www.paulabrennan.com.au
The unique talent Paula has for identifying the most flattering angles and light when taking photographs, shows women their own true beauty through the lens of a professional photographer. It’s for this reason that a glamour photoshoot has also been identified as the perfect gift idea for mum.
According to Paula, a stunning photograph can help improve a woman’s self-esteem by showing her she can be beautiful both inside and out, and a woman “should celebrate her life’s achievements and life story after child birth or during menopause”.
