Turning Pain Into Laughter Since 2011
A few months I did a photo shoot for my birthday. I had no problem choosing a photographer. It was a no-brainer to go with Miss Fancy herself, Trunetta Atwater of Trunetta Atwater Photography. On August 20, 2013 I joined her Fancy 150 Movement. What is the Fancy 150 Movement you ask? You’re so inquisitive! I love that about y’all! Well, let me first tell you a little about Tru, as she is affectionately called by those who know her.
Tru specializes in boudoir photography, but trust me she can do ANYTHING! From wedding photos to high school senior pictures, she’s sure to make you Fancy and capture every moment of your event in a way that only she can. She’s a beast with the camera and once you have a photo shoot with her, you won’t let anyone else near you with a camera. Yes, she’s that good! She holds a degree in Finance and an MBA…very smart, educated young lady. Now I’m sure you’re thinking, “How does a Finance major end up doing photography?” We’ll get to that later, but trust me, it was her destiny.
Tru started doing photography as a hobby and soon discovered that she had a love for the art of capturing life through photos. It wasn’t long before she was in high demand and after much prayer she decided to answer the call of photography. Oh yes, it’s her calling. She took a leap of faith, quit her job, and started doing photography full-time. God is using Tru to help other women find their beauty, talents, and their inner strength. Once you have the Trunetta Atwater photography experience, you are a different person. You walk away feeling prettier inside and out, with your head held a little bit higher.
Now back to this Fancy 150 Movement. The 150 movement is Tru’s effort to shoot, empower and inspire women. The number 150 is significant because it is her goal to shoot 150 women. Through these photo shoots she encourages women to tell their stories about what empowers and inspires them. Let me tell you, Tru has a gift for making women talk about things that they wouldn’t otherwise bring up in a normal conversation. Before I arrived for my appointment I had already told myself, “Tru will NOT get me to open up about ANYTHING! I will take pictures and I will leave! No expressing myself, Tru will NOT get me to talk!” Ha! Who was I kidding, Tru broke me down like a, like a…well let’s just say she broke me DOWN! When I left my heart felt lighter, and I realized a lot more about myself…things that I never really thought about before. Can you believe it? But I’m not mad at Tru, she was just doing what she does best. She made me Fancy inside and out.
Tru is also bringing more events to the city of Jackson, TN. Just recently she teamed up with Stephanie Graham, founder of AHY (A Healthier You) and presented “Fancy’s Fall Ladies Night Out” event. This event was held at the Carnegie in downtown Jackson and included vendors from other female business owners, a fashion show, wine tasting and live perfomances. This event brought women of all races and backgrounds together under one roof with nothing but positivity, good energy, and inspiration flowing through the room. If you missed this event, you might want to like her fan page on Facebook, Trunetta Atwater Photographer, to stay in the loop on future events. Her next event is the “Holiday Faces” FREE PHOTO EVENT, Canned Food and Toy Drive. This is a free mini holiday photo session for children 10 years and under. Donate a canned food product to get a $2 credit for each item donated, or a $10 credit for each toy donated, up to $20 credit available. All food and toys will be donated to a local charity.
