Hi! My name is April Melton and I am an El Paso TX boudoir photographer on a mission to empower women through photography. I want to change women’s lives … to help them see their beauty … to build their confidence … to bring down stereotypes …
Although I am a “fearless” photographer now, it wasn’t that way most of my life I thought that I was ugly and that caused me to lack confidence in myself.
If you have a moment, I’d like to share my story with you…
In the summer after first grade, my parents bought a new house and I had to go to a new school… In the ’70’s, there was a cartoon called, “Grape Ape.” And one of the “popular” boys in my 2nd grade class thought it would be fun to call me “Ape Face.” He was in most of my classes through high school and I never seemed to be able to escape his comments.
And of course, we all go through that awkward stage where we lose our baby teeth – our faces grow longer and pimply. Our bodies get plumper. And our self images begin to change – not always for the best, either.
Some of us are lucky to find an awesome senior photographer who captures our true personality and allows us a tiny glimpse of our personal beauty. (By the way, most of the women I meet tell me they haven’t had a good picture of themselves created since they were in high school. That speaks volumes to me).
|It’s my belief that television and bad photographers cause low self-esteem. Television bombards us with messages that we won’t be beautiful if we don’t lose 5 pounds with XYZ weight loss product… And when was the last time someone snapped a picture of you when you weren’t ready? I hate that! Check out the slideshow to see a few existing images of me that I hate and why I hate them.
Every day, I meet beautiful women who don’t know how beautiful they really are because they have pictures of themselves like these ————->
That certainly is NOT how I want my children to remember me… I want them to have pictures of me that are beautiful and confident!
Has your husband / boyfriend / or significant other ever told you that you’re beautiful and you just didn’t believe them?
Give me just one day – a fun, dress up day – a day of hair, makeup and photography. A day you’ll never forget. I can change how you think and feel about yourself. And I guarantee if you don’t like your pictures … if you don’t think you look beautiful in your pictures … if you don’t feel great about who you are as a woman, I will give you a 100% refund on your investment (no questions asked, no hard feelings).
Now, let’s have a little fun!!! I want to hear your story… Click here to schedule a FREE boudoir consultation. And let’s chat about what you don’t like about yourself and what you do.
Have a sexy day,
