"Hi Ladies!! My name is Nicole, I’m 34 and I work in finance. I live in Murrieta with my daughter and husband. I joined Alyssa’s Facebook group in early 2018 and just had my second boudie shoot with her. To say these experiences have been life changing would be an understatement.
Growing up I experienced a pretty traumatic situation, and as a result, used food as a coping mechanism for most of my life. I was always overweight until 9 years ago when I lost over 200 pounds. Even after losing weight I never felt beautiful or comfortable in my body. Yes, I was thinner but all I saw when I looked in the mirror was loose skin and all my other flaws staring back at me. When I had my first experience with Alyssa and her team, I was terrified. I was afraid I would hate every single picture and would never want to do this again.
I have never been so wrong in my life. Alyssa and her team made me SO comfortable from the moment I walked in the door. When my hair and makeup was done I felt amazing. I left her studio feeling like a bombshell. When I went to my image reveal a week later, I was still a little nervous but not terrified. When I saw my photos I literally could not speak. Every single one was beautiful. I couldn’t believe it was me on the screen. The best part was, it wasn’t a photoshopped version of me, it was actually me. Alyssa captured the real me and showed me how beautiful I actually am.
When I had my second shoot with Alyssa I went in with way more confidence but my reaction to seeing my photos was the same. I was still absolutely blown away to see myself the way she captured me with her camera. Alyssa has a gift. Her entire team is amazing. These ladies gave me my confidence back and I can never thank them enough for that! "
