"Hi! My name is Brittany, I am a 26 year old mortgage professional. This was my second shoot with Alyssa and her team. I booked my second shoot before I had even had my first shoot! I was so excited when Alyssa ran her Black Friday special, I just couldn’t help myself but jump at the chance.
Leading up to this shoot I was not nearly as nervous as my first shoot back in January. I will be honest, I didn’t prep as much this time. I forgot to stretch as much, never stepped foot into a gym, ate to my hearts content, drank more than I usually do in a month - and I was OK with that. I reminded myself that the purpose of this shoot was to be myself, curves from the hamburgers and all lol.
Growing up I had a lot of body image issues, and never really believed anyone’s compliments, no matter where they came from. I was teased as a child for being overweight - even from my parents. I grew up shaming myself for my curves. My thighs and hips were my biggest enemies..after my butt, of course. My first shoot changed my perception of my curves. My second shoot showed those changes.
Getting to the studio I was so ready and comfortable, hair and makeup was a blast. Talking to the girls felt like I had known them for years. Getting into my birthday suit was much easier this time, I went into the client closet, stripped down and pranced out in all my nude glory (lol). I felt sexier than I ever have in my life, I rocked that shoot and I knew it! I was so excited to see my photos, I had this confidence about myself I will never give back. Seeing my photos at the image reveal was life-changing. I took my own breath away, I was in awe of my own body, my own beauty. My confidence radiated through the photos, my heart about burst! Every. Single. Photo. Was. Breathtaking. And that was me! My first shoot showed me my beauty, this shoot I embraced the hell out of it!
I am so thankful for Alyssa and Amy and their team. They have given me the gift of self-love through their art of showing me my own beauty, through the eyes of another. Sometimes we forget how beautiful we truly are since we look in the mirror and so often judge ourselves based on what we see on the internet. I am beautiful, I am fierce, I am sexy. I can’t wait to see how much confidence comes out in the next shoot!
All my love,
