How old were you at your session? 25

What made you decide to book a session? I had been wanting to for a while but always talked myself out of it. One day I mentioned it to my husband and he said "book it already".

What was originally holding you back from booking a session? I had just had a baby and life was hectic. I kept telling myself that one day, when I had time.

What were you most nervous about for your session? What I would look like in the outfits, how comfortable would I be?

How did you feel about yourself before your session? I felt 'okay' with myself.

Describe your experience. It was eye opening. I arrived and Emily met me at the door and gave me the low down of what was going to happen today. She showed me the many pieces they had and let me try on what I wanted. Then Jes came out and looked at my outfits and told me what outfits would go with which furniture piece. It was finally time for Emily to work her magic. She was so relatable and complimentary. She saw my pictures and made sure I was happy with my look! It was time! Jes told me she would tell.me.exctly what to do. She was so helpful in showing exactly what she wanted and made me feel so at ease!

How did you feel about yourself after seeing your photos? I really had to try not to cry. I was in shock. They were stunning. I literally have looked at them 4-5 times daily since my gallery opened.

Anything else you want to add? Do it for yourself. The after product is great for a significant other, but do it for yourself and the way they help you see yourself!
