How old were you at your session?29
What made you decide to book a session?
I had been following your Facebook for quite some time admiring how brave & beautiful all the women were in the posts. I never thought I could it! I struggle with anxiety, but over the last year or so have been finding ways to push through it & go out of my comfort zone as much as possible. I decided to go for it when I saw the black Friday post. I knew if I didn't jump on the chance before the appointment dates filled up, I might lose my courage by the time there were more openings!
What was originally holding you back from booking a session?
Aside from the fear of being in next to no clothing with total strangers, my body hasn't been my favorite thing ever!
What were you most nervous about for your session?
I was afraid I wouldn't be able to do the poses or would just be completely awkward the entire time!!
How did you feel about yourself before your session?
Not terrible, but not very good either! I had been feeling very self conscious especially since I had just started taking out my summer clothes that are just a littttle bit tighter this year! lol
Describe your experience.
Amazing! I won't lie though, driving to the studio I was an anxious mess! lol Once I walked in I felt so much better. Emily & Jes were awesome & helped me with picking an outfit I was feeling looked too tight in the wrong places. I am so happy they gave me the confidence boost to go with it because I LOVE how it looks on me in the pictures! Hair & makeup was SO fun! I didn't have a plan other than curling my hair. Did you see the makeup?! <3 I don't wear much so I really wasn't sure what to do. I just let Emily do her thing & WOW! I couldn't really believe it was me when everything was done. I felt comfortable with Jes right away, even with my bare butt hangin out & everything on top being see through! lol That's a HUGE deal for me. Being brave enough to go live was pretty exciting for me too. If you get the chance, DO IT!!!
How did you feel about yourself after your session?
Better than I've felt in literally years! I conquered a huge fear & kicked it's ass!! :) I spent my evening with my family barbecuing on my new deck with my awesome hair & makeup wearing my funky, comfy PJs & it was PERFECT!
Were you nervous before your viewing session? Yes!
How did you feel about yourself after seeing your photos?
Amazing! I still can't believe that it's ME!!
What were your favorite products?Luxe album, basic album, view master
What would you tell anyone interested, but maybe hesitant, in book a session of their own?
Just go for it! No matter what your doubts are about it you will be so happy you did it.
How was working with Jes and Emily?
So much fun!! They make you feel welcome & comfortable the minute you walk in the door. They're both so great at what they do!
Will you be doing another session? Definitely!
Anything else you want to add?
This was by far one the best experiences I've ever had! I can't wait to do it again someday. You ladies rock thank you so much for everything!!
