So often you hear my perspective on the sessions and how excited I am to see the transformation and end result. I reached out to a couple of ladies who have had a session with me and asked them to talk about their experiences on the other side of the lens. I will be sharing them from time to time and maybe you'll see yourself in their stories.
Here is A's story... in her words
In the past few years, I haven't really concerned myself with my appearance. I am a truck driver after all, so who cares what I look like? Being overweight is just another excuse to "let myself go". As long as myself and my clothes are clean, I'm happy!I never considered myself to be beautiful on the outside, so I tried to make up for it by being beautiful on the inside. Then one day, I saw photos that my friend had posted of herself (she is overweight also), and a light went off in my head! These photos were AMAZING! She wasn't overweight, she was BEAUTIFUL!! And I thought, I want that too!
My wedding anniversary was coming up, and what a great anniversary gift it would be! So I contacted Jaime about setting up a session. We met in a hotel room, where the girls were waiting for me to do my hair and make-up. I had so much fun hanging out with them! They made me feel like a queen! I was a little baffled at first about the hotel room....wondering how this plain room was going to produce magnificent photos like the ones my friend posted. But Jaime worked her magic, and with the help of Karen and Harmony, made me look AND feel like a million bucks!
I have never in my life been happy with photos of myself, until now! I can honestly say, when I look at these photos, I am beautiful! So even though I drive a truck for weeks at a time, now I find myself putting a little more effort into my appearance. Nothing drastic, mind you, just a few extra little touches here and there, because now I actually care about the Me that everyone sees! And by the way, my husband was THRILLED with his gift! Thanks Jaime, Karen, and Harmony, for an AWESOME experience!!!
