Women's intimate portraiture

[ return to home ]

"Hi Ladies! My name is Lindsay and I found Alyssa on facebook back in 2015. When I found her page I knew I wanted to do this "eventually". I knew it would happen though. I'm pretty sure I emailed Alyssa on more than one occasion about starting before finally committing to it (haha). I was so nervous when I finally booked it for real. Eventually shoot day came and I still was so nervous. But my nerves went away as soon as I walked through the door. Immediately I felt comfortable and excited to start. Alyssa and her team are wonderful and make you feel so confident in what is about to happen. It doesn't even feel awkward to be dressing in lingerie in front of them (this was something I was having a hard time imagining before the shoot since I am pretty shy). They even help show you why the things you may not love about yourself are definitely lovable. 

 I don’t think there has ever been a time I haven’t criticized myself and obsessed over the way I look, my weight, and especially my height. I was a bundle of nerves the week prior to my shoot and up to the day of. My hair and makeup was done (beautifully, I might add) and then Alyssa and her team helped me chose my attire. I told Alyssa I wasn't 100% sure about going full nude as part of my wardrobe. Immediately Alyssa said, if you are even considering doing it, we will do it. And I am SO GLAD she did. I wasn’t quite sure I could do it with all the self conscious issues I have with my overall appearance. I've always felt awkward when it comes to being in front of a camera. I felt like my "candid" face always looked weird and I never know what to do with my body to make it look nice. Throughout the shoot, Alyssa and Amy walked me through everything. It was actually super fun and I wasn’t concerned with how I looked or posed at all because they instructed me on what to do and I completely trusted them. Once they showed me what they were shooting from the back of the camera, I was in complete shock that the girl in the camera was me. I felt comfortable, pretty, confident, and had an amazing time laughing and realizing just how imperfectly perfect I am. I've never felt this way about myself before. 

These ladies know what they’re doing. It’s not just about taking pictures for them, it’s about passion. The way they make you feel about yourself is something every woman should experience. Don’t wait for your body to be "perfect", just own it and let them do the rest. These ladies have such an amazing talent. I’m so happy I did this and can’t wait to do it again. The only regret I have is that I didn’t do this sooner! I can’t wait to see my final products and to do this again in the future."
