the roar of a woman...essenza

essenza at joelle watt studios is a personal and intimate portrayal of YOU as a woman.  it is not boudoir, however it could very much look like that alot of the time.     it is the mindset of how and why it is shot that provokes me to call it "essenza", which in italian translates to "essence."   what it is, is me shooting you, the essence of who you the state that you feel the absolute most beautiful and the most sensual.

oh, i've kept this part of my business hidden for YEARS now.

i'll talk to you about it on the street, but to put it on my website, my blog?

euh...i couldn't do it. 

for a number of reasons...

1. my kids read my blog (ummm right?)

2. i felt funny about people who were looking for family or senior pictures to be led to a site that had women who were not fully clothed.

3. i didn't want this area of my business to be misinterpreted.  

o.k., so those are three, but hey, i like to keep things short...

the thing about it now, is that it has become SO MUCH of what i do, and is SO MUCH in the mantra of my heart, that i CAN NOT, not show what i do. 

(however, i will carefully choose the images i display and if you would like to see other examples, i can show you them via a more private setting)

here's the thing.

i believe in the core and true beauty of a woman. 

"The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.” ―  Audrey Hepburn

i believe God made you the way that you are, because that is what He did!!!!

let us curl your hair, put you in professional make-up, cover you in satin and tulle,      and experience the lady and the woman that you are.

you walk away empowered.

you walk away with joy.

you walk away feeling to the core with every tip of your head, push of your hip, swing of your hair, that you are a beautiful, carefully, lovingly, created WOMAN....

oh you hear the roar??
