I have been following Shalista’s page for quite some time and always wanted to do a shoot (because I knew it was going to be fun!). I finally decided I didn’t want to be the girl wishing she could, so I did it.
After I booked my shoot, I was definitely excited but wasn’t sure what I got myself into. I prepared for the session by paying close attention to the details in the emails that Shalista sends you prior to your shoot–those were beyond helpful!
Once I arrived for my shoot, I was a little nervous but knew it was going to be an amazing experience. I started getting my hair and make up done right away by Lacey and that made me really comfortable because the she calmed any nerves I had. She made me look and feel gorgeous and Shalista tells you everything you need to do to look flawless–so there is no way one could not love this experience.
After my shoot, I was really happy that I made the decision to just do it because I felt beautiful in my skin and was able to have an experience that I have never had before. My images were for myself to boost my confidence and to embrace the beauty of being a woman. I was kind of nervous to see my images because I knew I was put outside of my comfort zone but I was beyond ecstatic to see them. I loved every single one of them! I plan to do another shoot in the future and I highly recommend other women to just do it! The photo shoot was everything I expected it to be and more, Shalista and her team made every effort to make me comfortable in my own skin and feel like a queen.
