My first shoot was decided after seeing a friend’s pictures, and I loved them and wanted to have the experience. My second shoot was decided on because I had just hit 6 months of sobriety, and I was thinking of what I wanted to do for a present for myself. My body had changed a lot in those 6 months, but more importantly my confidence had changed too and I wanted to do a shoot with the “new me.”
It honestly is a life changing experience. Every woman should consider doing this. I have always struggled with body image, or never feeling enough in that aspect. My shoots have changed the way I look at myself. I feel so damn beautiful walking out of your studio, like a queen. I feel empowered by being able to love pictures of ME. Self love is so important, and my shoots gave me the power to dive into my self love. I won’t ever regret my shoot. It has been a part of my sobriety journey because it was able to give me strength to see myself as ENOUGH and BEAUTIFUL and CAPABLE. I’m so grateful that I got to do this for myself, and to have Shalista as part of that journey.
