“Perfectly imperfect.That is my goal and I'm very close. Part of the reason I booked a shoot with Amy is because I am at a point in my life where I am learning to love myself no matter what. I wanted to do a boudoir shoot for years, but it was always "when I lose the weight, then I'll book it".I've never been what you would consider a "small" woman, even when I was in the best shape of my life.I've spent many years not liking myself and I could write a book on that alone. But I decided to go ahead and dive in and celebrate me, right now, exactly how I am. I have a daughter that is almost in her teen years and I want her to know that her mom loves herself no matter what and I'm hoping that translates to her to continue loving herself.When I scheduled my shoot, my biggest fear was being judged, another subject that would no doubt take up a few chapters in my journey to self love novel. But Christian and Amy were nothing short of amazing. From the first step I took into the studio to the moment I left, I felt nothing but beautiful.And when a woman feels beautiful, she becomes fierce!! I cried at first glance when my hair and make up was complete. Christian is a magician y'all. She just IS! Then came time for my shoot. I anticipated that I would keep myself completely covered at all time, but Amy just has this way about her. She celebrates women in all shapes and sizes and her work shows it. It's hard to pick a favorite part of my shoot, so I'll pick 2. My hair and make up is definitely one (I didn't take it off until 11:00 that night) and some of you may know this one "close your eyes, exhale and look at me".....FIERCE!!!!! That is how I felt during the whole shoot, simply fierce!! And that is all thanks to Amy and Christian as well. It's a feeling that almost can't be put into words and every woman should experience at least once in their life.I plan on doing another shoot when I'm done working on my body and I'm where I want to be. If you've even thought about doing a boudoir shoot, my advice is...dive in, celebrate YOU.I promise you, you won't regret it.”
Much love, perfectly imperfect
