"I did this for myself."
I needed to see what others say they see in me. I needed the boost...And I got it! I'm on the cusp of 50 and going through perimenopuase so, I'm fighting my own body with changes.
About six years ago, I had finally made my 100 lb weight loss goal and had some surgery to help with extra skin. Just over two years ago I quit smoking and put some weight back on. I needed to see for myself that I didn't go all the way back; and see myself as beautiful so I would quit beating myself up and just get back on track. Now, when I'm having down times I can look at my pictures and feel good about myself.
"I had lost a significant amount of weight, put some back on, quit smoking and am now starting a journey of strength training. I wanted to document where I was so that I would quit beating myself up and starting loving myself again."
Leading up to my session I was nervous. My own depressions and self sabotage was saying I wasn't where I wanted to be, but I was excited at the same time.
During my session I felt like the most beautiful woman in the world. I felt comfortable, sexy, beautiful and I had so much fun!
My sense of accomplishment and love for myself and the comfort level I felt were completely unexpected! I felt so empowered for a couple weeks after my session. I know I was holding my head a bit higher and my shoulders were a bit more set. It felt so good! When I look at my pictures it brings back some emotions from the session for me. I remember how empowered I was and it brings that feeling back.

Since my session I have gotten my sister to do this and we are getting our other sister to do a session too! If I could, I would get everyone to do this to see how great and beautiful you all are! I'm already planning my sexy session, though it will and an outdoor shoot so I'll have to wait until the spring!
