How old were you at your session?26
What made you decide to book a session?
I first met Jes at the Duluth Bridal Show and Poly is actually the one who drew my attention to their booth and introduced me! I had never thought about doing anything like this but before I knew it she had me feeling insanely confident and brave and I was already filling out papers to do my shoot!
What was originally holding you back from booking a session?
I was insecure about my body, especially my chest and didn’t think I was “pretty enough” or “sexy enough” to be one of those girls to let my walls down.
What were you most nervous about for your session?
I was nervous about posing and how to not look awkward! Jes and her girls made it SO EASY! She walked me through step by step and made simple corrections when needed! I never felt uncomfortable or pressured to do something I wasn’t comfortable with!
How did you feel about yourself before your session?
I was very excited but nervous on my way to my shoot. I didn’t know what to expect the day of my shoot so I tried to remind myself to keep calm and be open minded! The second I walked into the studio and met Emily, every preconceived worry I had quickly melted away!
Describe your experience.
AMAZING!! There are a millions words I could use to describe that day. From start to finish I had the most amazing experience. Hair and makeup was beyond beautiful, the wardrobe to choose from is massive and every single piece is STUNNING!! They have such a good eye and pull pieces ahead of time based on your measurements and style! When it came time for the actual shoot, I felt so excited and relaxed. Jes made each pose so simple yet so complimentary to my personality! It was so hard to leave at the end of the shoot, it goes by so quickly and you are just having so much fun!
How did you feel about yourself after your session?
Powerful, sexy, beautiful!!! I couldn’t stop staring at myself in the mirror! It’s not every day we get to be all dolled up and run around in heels and lingerie! I couldn’t believe how instantly beautiful and confident I felt, especially for someone who has never been through this!
Were you nervous before your viewing session?Yes, but more so excited. From the two quick shots I saw on the camera that day, I knew I was going to love my photos!
How did you feel about yourself after seeing your photos?
I could have cried from excitement! I have never felt more beautiful than after seeing my photos. I was so worried I wouldn’t like any of them because of my insecurities but when I was Skyping with Jes I just remember telling her over and over how much I loved every single one!! I couldn’t stop staring at myself!!!
What were your favorite products?The Luxe album and the Polaroids!
What would you tell anyone interested, but maybe hesitant, in book a session of their own?
100% must do it!! No matter makes you nervous about this, I can guarantee you will leave feeling incredible and beautiful, and have so much more self confidence!!
How was working with Jes and Emily?
They are a blast to work with! Extremely professional but also super fun and encouraging! They make you feel like a million bucks!
Will you be doing another session?Most definitely!! My first one was more bridal based for a wedding gift for my soon to be hubby, I’d love to do more of a fun one next time!!
Anything else you want to add?
I hope every woman does this at least once in their life! I have never felt more confident and beautiful! Jes is a true talent and is so gifted behind the camera, and Emily’s makeup and hair leaves you feeling incredible! Thank you for everything ladies!! Can’t wait to do another!!
