I am BEAUTIFUL.

Recently, Kristin came in for a photo session. I asked her if she would share her experience with us and this is what she said:

  • Before your shoot - what do you remember thinking/feeling? How was your planning? Would you do anything differently?

I was definitely nervous. I wasn’t sure I was ready to see the me I’ve become at forty something stripped down if you will. I knew I needed this experience though to open my eyes to the beautiful being God made me to be., regardless of the scars and imperfections as society would call it. Would I do anything different? No. I think the unknown is what everything worth doing is all about. Facing something head on is very representative of the path I’ve chosen to take in life and it’s left a glorious view in my rear view mirror and I wouldn’t change that for anything

  • Did you read everything that was sent to you before the shoot?

yes

  • Would some posing tips and/or practice exercises help you if you received these before the shoot?

no

  • Did you feel well prepared for your shoot?

yes What were your feelings and emotions the day of your shoot? Before, during and after?

  • I had a little bit of anxiety beforehand. During the shoot I was made to feel very at ease. The more we shot the better and more confident I began to feel. By the end I was sad it was over. I felt really empowered afterward that I did something for me and about me. That’s not something a single mom ever gets used to, but darnit, she should!

  • How did you feel the day of your reveal? Before arriving to see your photos and when you saw them for the first time?

Ahhhh! I was so excited to see what was captured! I couldn’t believe how amazing the photos came out. I think I kept saying “that’s me??” Catherine captured a side of me I had long forgotten. Age plays tricks on ya...grey hair, sagging skin, extra weight, scars, and wrinkles...glorious wrinkles! But guess what?? That’s me, that’s who I’ve become and I love that girl! So I’d say I felt amazing after my viewing knowing that all those things I used to dislike are my trademark and that’s pretty darn awesome!

  • Knowing what you know now, would you do it again? Would you have changed anything?

I sure would do it again. I would do something a bit different as far as outfits. I’d like to lose weight and get in better shape to do a before and after shoot, something to compare as my body changes and I get stronger in time.
