You know that feeling you get when you see an instagram influencer and compare yourself to her? That shitty punch in the gut that says you are not worthy ... you know the one. That is the poison we kill and the anti-venom is empowerment. When you allow yourself this experience and discover a new way to see yourself, the way where your "worst" isn't even crossing your mind when seeing a photo of yourself, something changes. Something inside you changes and you realize that you ARE that woman you never thought you were before.

"I feel like being a woman sometimes we forget how truly intricate and layered we are. I have always been gentle on how I treat and take care of my body, but it is so easy to judge and critique what could be fixed or altered. Which are most likely driven by the never ending, unrealistic societal views constantly hammering us down. For once, I felt worthy and loved in my own skin, because I finally saw "me" through the lens (unedited and all). When I saw photos of having no clothes to hide behind, I allowed myself to accept the pain, the trauma and the grief that existed in me I truly felt beautiful and seen. "
"I have never felt more comfortable or beautiful in my life than I did in my session with Melissa. She and Megan (the incredible cosmetologist) welcomed me into the studio with open arms and I felt like I was hanging out with two of my lifelong friends. Melissa not only made me feel gorgeous, but we also had SO much fun and joked and laughed the entire way through the shoot. I never felt even remotely uncomfortable, and I had never worn lingerie like this in my life! It was so easy, playful, and one of the best feelings in the world. "
Guess who looks hot as helllllll
And my husband still has no idea.
Thanks Melissa, you’re a gem! Can’t wait to see the rest!
Best experience of my life. Personally, emotionally and definitely one that I'll never forget. Such a personal challenge to push myself out of my comfort zone. Can’t wait to see the rest!
What started as a gift for my husband, has absolutely turned into a gift for myself. I’ve been in mom mode for so long I’ve forgotten that I’m so much more than that. If you were ever on the fence about doing a shoot- do it. You will not regret it.
I have heard it all. "I need to lose weight first", "I should have done this in my youth", "I am not sexy"...... I say Bullshit!
