What made you decide to book a session?
I have been following these ladies for a couple years now and when a June session opened up I grabbed it! I decided it was time to do something for me.

The cost.

What were you most nervous about for your session?
I had done my "homework" before my session by stalking the page for months making sure I watched EVERY live video so there weren't any nerves, just excitement!

The hardest thing all day was remembering NOT to put on my deodorant before leaving in the morning.

How did you feel about yourself before your session?
I felt ok. Again, I had been following and stalking the page for a LONG time before my session and the amazing women in the VIP Facebook group had already turned around how I looked at myself.

Describe your experience.
When I walked into the studio the first thing that came to mind was...."Am I really HERE?!" It was the same feeling I had the first time I went to Disney as a kid. It was surreal and dream like. 

I felt like I had been here before and was instantly at ease. Then Katie and Jes came out if the office with huge smiles and it was like seeing old friends I had know for forever

How did you feel about yourself after your session?
Amazing! Or as Katie would say, Amazeboobies! I felt empowered. I knew nothing could or would ever get in my way again because I have this tribe of women behind me if I ever needed it

How was working with Jes and Emily?
I can not put into words how amazing these warriors are. That is truly what they are. Katie too! They are out there every day fighting against the stigmas that society has placed on women of what we SHOULD be or how we SHOULD look. Working with them was such a breath of fresh air and I only hope I can carry on what they do.
