If it weren't for Katie, her sense of humor, and outstanding professionalism, I'm not sure I would have gone through with it. I almost didn't do it. I cancelled once. I doubted myself. I doubted Katie. I thought it would be a waste of money. I convinced myself I would hate it. I thought my husband would laugh at it. I'm too old for this. I felt dumb for even contemplating it.....the list goes on. I honestly thought I was wasting my time and that I was going to hate every photo.
I was NOT physically or emotionally comfortable walking in the door. I really wasn't. I'm not exactly sure how Katie's "magic" works, but she had me laughing at myself in no time. It ended up being a lot of fun. I very quickly went from covering every inch of me to changing in front of her like we had known each other for years. Next time I would change my state of mind from the start.
I walked out LOVING my hair and still not so sure about my make-up. It was more than what I am used to. I was wrong again. Next time, I will let the professionals do their job and not over think it so much. I forgot that I can be beautiful! That is so easy to do when you are busy with this thing called LIFE.
My husband actually got a little emotional over his 8X8 black leather book. But honestly, this is the single best thing I have done for MYSELF in many years. If there is ONE take away from this whole experience, it is that I am still attractive. I have been married for 20 years and this single experience has reminded me that I am also the same person that I was 20 years ago. Thank you Katie. My husband REALLY thanks you!!! xoxo
