What made you decide to book a session? I have several friends who have done it and said that it was so much fun. I've seen their pictures and they are stunning. I couldn't wait!

What was originally holding you back from booking a session? I have three kids and work part time and am in nursing school full time. So money. And time.

What were you most nervous about for your session? How is my butt going to look? Do I have body dysmorphia in another form where I think I'm really thinner than I really am? What if the makeup makes me look like a hooker? What if I WANT to look like a hooker? Where the &*(& will I go after the session all done up?

How did you feel about yourself before your session? Again, tired, full time nursing student and mom to young children. I'm exhausted. All the time. And I used to work out 3-4 times a week and since school started I haven't been able to keep up. I'm the happiest I have ever been though. I'm almost finished with school and I'm madly in love. It shows!

Describe your experience. I loved having my makeup done by Emily. She is so precise and she truly is an artist. I loved my makeup and I'll be having her come to my house every morning from now on... My hair is short and I didn't know how curls would look but Emily made it look effortless and just different enough that I still felt like myself. Jess is so down to earth and personable. You can feel that she really loves her job and wants every woman to feel good about themselves.

How did you feel about yourself after your session? I could not wait to see the images and I was so surprised how fast the time flew by.

Were you nervous before your viewing session? Not until I saw the TV they show it to you on ;)

How did you feel about yourself after seeing your photos? I was shocked. It looked like me but also another version. I love them. I just wanted to stare at them. I did this for myself and I'm so glad I did!

What were your favorite products? The accordion booklet and the viewfinder

What would you tell anyone interested, but maybe hesitant, in book a session of their own? Oh, just stop it and do it already. It's amazing. Every woman should spend the day feeling this way!
