Desiree was our first photoshoot for 2015. She signed up for our “Love You Session (LYS) ” our women for women campaign (click here, if you missed the first post) and we were very excited about this session.
Desiree is a 40 something wife and mother to two young boys and is a teacher by profession. She is simple and very down to earth and off the bat we knew that she does fuss on herself too much. She came around noon and was quite nervous, so Erika, my partner in crime, put her immediately to ease when she sat down for her make up session. “It’s my first photo session , ever!” she said. I could tell that she was nervous so while being made up, I briefed her and coached on what to expect, how to relax, eye contact points, facial expressions, body movements etc. I then explained that this session is all about looking at yourself in a different light. It is not to transform you physically, but to make you feel good. I think that apeased her.
We then went through the outfit changes and walked her through my vision (look and feel) for each. We agreed on three dresses, and by the third, you could tell that she was so comfortable in her own skin and was enjoying the whole experience.

Desiree emailed thanking us how she enjoyed her first photo shoot experience— here are her exact words:
“I felt a bit nervous while being prepped coz I didn’t know what to expect, and it was my first photo session with a pro:-) During the photoshoot, I was a bit uncomfortable and stiff because I actually have no idea how, and what to do, but the coaching helped a lot. Pretty soon I felt more comfortable. Looking at myself on the photos seemed surreal and I thought it wasn’t me:-) I didn’t even think I could do it. It seems like I’ve discovered a different “me. If you ask me, I would do it again and would definitely recommend it to other women:-)”
