What motivated you to do a session? I have been wanting to do a session for some time and decided that i would do one when i turned 40.
Are these photos for you, or a gift for someone? The session was for myself, but thw photos arw for my boyfriend.
Before your session, what were you most nervous about? How i was going to look. I have a difficult time looking at pictures of myself. I never like what i see.
What was your favorite part of the experience? How Kristen took the time to explain every pose and really just talked like we were girlfriends.
Where did you shop for your outfits? I got my bra and pantie sets at torrid and used my kimonos that I already had from Lula Roe.
After the shoot how did you feel? I was excited. I couldn't wait to see the pictures because i had had such an amazing time
What was your initial reaction to your images? SHOCK! I could not believe that beautiful, sexy woman on the screen was me.
Did anything change about how you see yourself? My boyfriend swears i have been walking with a swagger! And it is true. My session gave me the ability to see myself through his eyes and to stop doubting my sexiness.
Now that you've had your session what would you. go back and tell yourself to calm your nerves, inspire or empower yourself? Live in the moment. When i was getting my hair and makeup done i had a moment where i had a panic attack: i started sweating and my chest hurt. All i could think about was that my body is not the idealized idea of sexy, but once i remembered to live in the moment and let go i had the best time.
Any advice for someone who might be considering a shoot? DO IT! I am so happy i did and that i was given the chance to see myself as the sexy, beautiful, confident woman that i now know i am.
