I'll never get over the amazing stories of the women who walk into my studio. The things they've endured and the experiences they've had all shape who they are today and it's an honor to be able to encourage their badassery or hand them a little piece of confidence that they didn't even know they could have. This girl is just one of many awesome babes that I get to work with.
Walking into this session, I had absolutely no idea what to expect. I was excited. I was nervous. I was super body conscious; more so than I have ever been. I am not a small girl. I never have been. I had seen all these amazing boudoir shots of these beautiful, thin girls and never in a million years expected my photos to turn out that perfect.
I’ve had body issues my entire life. Even when my depression hit in high school and I became super thin, I still saw myself as this “fat girl.” I self harmed because of my body image. I never thought I’d be good enough, and that’s something that I still struggle with so much so today, even though I have accepted myself for who I am. Even though I do see myself as a beautifully flawed person.
I looked at myself in the mirror after having my hair and makeup done and don’t even recognize myself. I was gorgeous! I had never seen myself like this. I instantly felt a million times more confident and beautiful. I told myself, “I SO got this!”
The photo shoot in itself was so fun and comfortable. Katie was cracking jokes and telling me how amazing I looked, and how awesome I was doing. The pictures turned out so much better than I thought! I looked just as beautiful as those gorgeous thinner girls, and I just couldn’t believe it. I wanted to show those photos to the world; something I never thought I’d be comfortable doing.
If you’ve been wondering about a photo shoot with Katie- don’t hesitate. She is absolutely amazing. She made this rundown mom look hot! She’s 110% got you. She can and WILL make you look hot too!
