OUR SHOOT TOGETHER WAS ONE OF THE BEST THINGS I’VE EVER DONE FOR MYSELF.
These pictures are a daily reminder that I'm so much stronger than my disease, and an inspiration to work my ass off to get back into the gym. They're also an act of defiance. A way of taking back 20 years of feeling broken and less than. A refusal to cover up or to feel shame. A love letter to myself and to my body.
THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME THE CONFIDENCE TO CALL MYSELF GORGEOUS!
I have never been given a chance like yesterday to put all of myself out there, free of judgement, free of body shame, free of body embarrassment. Thank you for loving my gorgeous long limbs with me and thank you for giving me the confidence to call myself gorgeous.
A GIFT TO MYSELF.
You gave me confidence in myself, you taught me how awesome it is to truly love yourself, and most importantly you gave ME a forever gift.
FINALLY, AT THE AGE OF 41, GOT UP THE COURAGE
I never thought I would ever do this. I had always thought about it, but never thought I would go through with it. I finally, at the age of 41, got up the courage. Talk about waiting forever! Waaay overdue. This experience and gift, by far, was the best I had ever given myself. I felt like a WOMAN, a SEXY one too! Over the years I had thought less and less about my appearance as I aged but Jess captured gorgeous shots of my body that I didn't even realize I had. I would do these shoots every day if I could....it was a blast along with positive energy, good vibes and much needed encouragement.
MY GIFT WENT OVER BETTER THAN I EVER COULD HAVE HOPED!
He was so touched. He couldn't believe I went so far out of my comfort zone for him. He wants to do more with his hot rods and Harley's. Thank you so much for your talent and professionalism. It was beyond wonderful for a good man.
YOU LEAVE YOUR SESSION WITH JESS AND YOU FEEL STUNNING.
The day I received the draft to my album was the first time I've confidently showed off myself with no shame or no fear. Jess did that. You leave your session with Jess and you feeling stunning.
THE FIRST TIME I’VE CONFIDENTLY SHOWED OFF MYSELF WITH NO SHAME OR FEAR.
We as women are faced daily with body image and making ourselves into something we aren't. Jess is in the business to break down that wall and allow women to see themselves and only themselves. I was one of those women that could rattle off a thousand things wrong with myself. The day I received the draft to my album was the first time I've confidently showed off myself with no shame or no fear. Jess did that. You leave your session with Jess and you feeling stunning. I will forever be in love with this album that I'm surprising my fiancé with on our wedding day. It's a gift for him, but I'm pretty sure I'll be looking at it just as much as him. Jess is a wonderful women and has an incredible business that makes women feel sexy, confident, and beautiful not only the day of your shoot, but forever afterwards. Thank you!
