What made you decide to book a session?
This was something I've always wanted to do! The black Friday sale popped up shortly after I got engaged, and I thought it would be the perfect gift!

What was originally holding you back from booking a session?
Pricing a little bit, but mostly me being self conscious when it comes to getting my picture taken. I am thee most awkward turtle in front of a camera, and now I have to look relaxed, natural and sexy in front of a camera all at the sametime?! Can I do this?

What were you most nervous about for your session?
Tan lines! I had a summer session and it was not easy trying to hide from the future hubs why I was dressed like it was 30 below in the middle of June! The other part that had me nervous was how well I would take direction from Jes while avoiding the whole turtle fiasco.

How did you feel about yourself before your session?
I felt pretty good, average, comfortable, plain jane. I was starting to feel "settled" with my appearance, kinda blah, this is as good as its going to get attitude and that scared me a bit. As the session got closer I realized that this was also a gift to me to revitalize my spirit, and to re-find my inner sass

Describe your experience.
The whole entire day was a whirlwind of emotions. From being nervous to overwhelmed, excited to relaxed and everything in between. Once I was done with hair/makeup/outfits I put my entire trust in these gals that this was going to be awesome, and they proved me right! The whole thing felt effortless and time flew by. The whole day was filled with smiles and laughter which made the experience that much better!

How did you feel about yourself after your session?
I felt great! I wanted to give myself a Hi-Five after we were done, because I was so proud of myself! It made me feel strong, confident, and sexy! It feels good to have that sass back, which I plan on taking better care of in the future.

What would you tell anyone interested, but maybe hesitant, in book a session of their own?
Hurry and just do it! You will not regret it. Even if it's not for someone else do it for YOU. It is an eye opening experience and a great way to treat yourself!

How was working with Jes and Emily?
They are a hoot! I just loved working with both of them. They are both extremely professional and talented in their crafts. They have a unique eye that is able to see the inner you and bring that to the surface to shine! I was absolutely clueless about hair, make up, clothes, posing.. you name it I'd never really done it. They take such good care of you and walk you though everything step by step. Eventually you forget that you are walking around in next to nothing getting your picture taken.

Anything else you want to add?
Trust these ladies, trust the process. Everyone is scared and nervous from the day you book, to your session, and even your viewing. These ladies are so supportive and good at what they do. When it's all done I guarantee you will look at yourself in a new light
