Anniversary Gift for Husband
Tell me about yourself. Personality, kids, profession, favorite food and hobbies? What do you value? Absolutely anything you want to share so I can get a sense of who you are, what you like. I want to see you for you.
I have two kids (teenagers). I am a pretty outgoing blunt person. I really like being around “real” people who are truthful and self-aware. I can not deal with ignorance and intolerance. I work at at college part-time helping with things in the background and working with students. I love food. I am willing to try anything once. I love reading, scrapbooking,drawing, painting, crafting. I also love gardening and enjoying the beauty of the outdoors.
Have you done a session like this before? What was your experience? What did you like? Is there anything you disliked?
I have never done something like this before.
How do you want these images to feel? How would you like to be photographed overall? Any certain style you love?
I want them to feel sexy and confident. I am the one usually behind the camera and do not enjoy photos taken much.

Fun, Relaxing, and eye opening
What was your favorite part of the session?
Doing all the different poses and feeling sexy and comfortable doing them.
Was your experience what you were expecting? If not, how was it different?
Yes. I was not expecting to feel so comfortable in my skin. I thought I would feel awkward and silly. In the end I felt sexy and enjoyed myself.
What was the best part of your overall experience so far? Would you change anything?
I hated shopping for lingerie as a plus size person, but once I found what worked for me, I was good. The best part was seeing the pictures. Realizing I am still a vibrant women who wants to feel sexy. It is so hard as a Mom to see yourself that way sometimes.
What did you think when you saw your images for the first time?
I was floored! I could not believe those pictures were actually me! It had been such a long time since I had seen myself that way.
Did you find my self love tips and exercise emails helpful? Anything that stuck out to you?
Yes. They were always in the back of my mind as I prepped for the session.
Did you find my session preparation helpful? Anything that stuck out to you or helped you the most?
I liked the reminder of just to drink water and be a bit healthier.
How nervous were you before you shoot? How did you feel after?
I was freaked out!! Totally out of my comfort zone, but afterwards I rode the high all day. I will say I was not expecting to be so tired. It really is a taxing process on your body.
