What made you decide to book a session? I had been a part of the group for quite some time, and had always wanted to do it. When I found out I was possibly going away for a year, I figured what better time than now!

What was originally holding you back from booking a session? My body, of course. I've gotten older and no longer have college sports keeping me in shape. My body is no where near where it was or where I want it to be, but this is me at 30.

What were you most nervous about for your session? Picking the outfits. I was worried nothing would look good on me and my fat rolls would be hanging out all over the place.

How did you feel about yourself before your session? I was nervous, but not as much as I thought I would be. I had seen the amazing work Jes does and read the other blogs too, so I think that helped a lot too.

Describe your experience. It was amazing from the moment I walked in. Emily greeted me and made me feel comfortable! She showed me the rack of outfits they pulled for me according to my sizes I had put down and let me have at the wardrobe. I didn't know how some of them worked and Emily helped me get into them. I picked my favorites and then it was on to hair and makeup with Emily. I showed her a few pics and told her what I was thinking and she worked her magic. We chatted and laughed, she eased any nerves that may have been there. Once she was done I couldn't believe it was actually me, I felt super pretty. Jes came and helped me narrow my favorites to my final selection and it was go time. Jes explained EVERYTHING and also did all the poses before so there was no pressure on my part, except remembering what went where. The session was amazing. I had so much fun laughing with Jes. She showed me a few pics during the shoot and I really couldn't believe that was actually me. It was such a confidence boost.

How did you feel about yourself after your session? I felt on top of the world! I had so much confidence and felt like I was radiating this "yeah I know I'm sexy" attitude.

Were you nervous before your viewing session? I was extremely nervous, mainly because my boyfriend came with so there no way to "proof" what he was going to see.

How did you feel about yourself after seeing your photos? Incredible. Everything I was worried about before was totally gone. There I was, on the big screen, and I was loving every bit of it.

What would you tell anyone interested, but maybe hesitant, in book a session of their own? Bite the bullet and do it!!! It is SO worth it and you will love how you feel. You don't need a reason or person to do it for... you'll love the results the most!

How was working with Jes and Emily? The greatest experience ever! They make you feel so comfortable and amazing. They're such fun girls and you can tell they love what they do.

Will you be doing another session? Definitely!

Anything else you want to add? I went into this not happy with how my body had changed and how I looked now, but that all went away after seeing myself in Jes' camera. Don't make excuses or hold yourself back from this amazing experience!
