I don’t want to tell you how much I LOVED the pictures I did with Nichole because we all know she is amazing at what she can do.
Instead, I am going to tell you about my experience and how Nichole made me feel like a woman again.
LEADING UP TO MY SHOOT
I can tell you, the days leading up to my photo shoot were unbearably long! I was nervous and excited at the same time, but mostly nervous. How are these pictures going to look? Why am I even doing this?
I went lingerie shopping and nothing would fit me. I felt down and out. I just wanted to quit.
But Nichole was there for me every step of the way. She was encouraging, talked me through finding a few things to bring, she made sure I stayed positive and that I didn’t beat myself up.
THE DAY OF MY SHOOT
The day of my shoot I was so nervous. My heart was beating out of my chest, but once I walked into her studio and she greeted me with that huge smile, everything felt just fine. She was warm and so friendly. It felt like I’d known her for years! Her make-up artist and hair stylist are amazing at what they do. I have never worn make-up nor had my hair done professionally, but when I saw myself in that mirror I was an entirely new person.
When we started shooting the pictures I was scared and I was fighting a mental battle at the beginning.
I felt like I wasn’t doing it right. I know I’m super heavy and some of these poses may not work for me.
But once I saw how the pictures were coming out... WOW, look at me go! I never felt this way before. All the negative thought was gone, all my insecurities were gone! I was an entirely new person. “This is me? Are you sure!” I just couldn’t believe it, I felt amazing and I started to open up and relax and I tore up that session.
I’m not going to lie, I am a 300+ female and I am reminded of that every single day..
People look at me strange when I try on sexy clothes and they don’t fit, and I get the stares when I walk into a restaurant like I’m not welcomed. But after my session, LOOK OUT. I’m walking out this door like an entirely new person.
I couldn’t keep myself contained on how SEXY I looked. I wanted to take on the world! I didn’t want to hide my face anymore - I wanted everyone to see!
I am NORMAL and I am SEXY, and I can do everything and anything a size 0 can do. Just watch me.
It’s amazing what Nichole can do! I wasn’t expecting to come out those doors feeling like I did but I am so grateful for her! She made me realize that just because I’m not “perfect” in the world's eyes doesn’t mean I’m not “perfect." I LOVE myself again. ~ Sam
