Here’s what I tell people (women, invariably) who ask this question at our consultation, or before booking a session.
“They’re not just for you. They’re for your kids, and their kids, and their kids. They’re for when you’re not here; when you’ve been away for a while, when you’re working nights and they need a picture to keep them company. It’s for when you need a photo for work, or a family newsletter, or family event. They’re for your mother, your father, your children and everyone who loves you. But mostly they’re for you. They are the reminder that you are a person…a wonderful, beautiful, confident person. They’re for those mornings when you’re not feeling great but you can look at them and be reminded that you’re gorgeous. These are for you in your darkest moments, when you feel like you don’t know who you are anymore. That’s why you need them all.”
