You are Beautiful: June B. | Maggie Messer Boudoir

How coparenting, Camp Gladiator, and becoming a Nonna made June’s life full.

Through my mission to empower women by creating artistic portraits showcasing their true essence, while reminding them how strong, beautiful, and extraordinary they are I have met some amazing women…and June B. is no exception. Keep reading for our conversation on staying grounded, coparenting, and what it means for her to turn 50.

Maggie: What things have most affected you and the way you look at the world? 

June: Married my high school sweetheart, made two gorgeous kids, divorced and been single since 2000. I didn’t worry about failing at keeping a roof over our heads because it just wasn’t an option. We co-parented better than most and are on very friendly terms today. Found my calling in my work looking to make more money for us & enjoy it so much I help train new staff. Started Camp Gladiator March 2018 & met an incredible group of people that helps keep me grounded & focused, who push me when I need it & laugh with me while doing it. Became a Nonna shortly after. My life is simple, full & all mine. 

M: What is your favorite NON physical feature about yourself?

J: [I am] fierce in my independence. 

M: What is your definition of beauty?

J: Beauty is a quiet underrated power. It’s the perfect bite of steak, a smooth shade of lipstick, music in the background of a night drive at midnight, the smile across a dinner table, deep and full and genuine. 

M: What impacted you the most about beauty when you were younger that you’ve carried with you into adulthood (positive or negative)?

J: I think I was about 8 or 9 and I needed my hair braided. My mom said I was old enough to do it myself so I did. That’s when I learned I was responsible for my own look and I could do what I wanted to. 

M: Based on your personal experience, what words of wisdom would you like to share with others who struggle to see their own beauty?

J: The beauty you see in others is a reflection of yourself in their eyes.

M: How does being the woman you are today make you uniquely powerful?

J: I am the master of my universe, my queendom if you will. I can decide everything and anything.  

M: What made you want to do this session?  Why are beautiful photos important for you right now?

J: My 50th birthday is in June. I’ve never had professional photos done and thought it might be nice to have some. To see how a professional sees my potential and brings it forward.
