Janine has a smile that would bring an entire room to a stand-still, and a radiant light shining from her soul. I am so honored that I got to meet and photograph her!
What is your name?: Janine
How old are you?: 32
What do you do for a living?: Administrative Assistant
What made you decide to book a session?: I wanted to do something so far out of my comfort zone to prove to myself that I could be sexy in my own skin.
Did you have any fears about your photoshoot?: Of course I had fears, fears that I wouldn't know how to pose, fears that the flaws that I notice daily would show in my photos, fears that I would look like a fool trying to "be sexy" but I was so comfortable during the session that it started to come out naturally.
Was the experience different from what you expected?: This was by far the most liberating experience that I've ever participated in personally. I left there the day of feeling so much more confident, like a new woman with my head held high.
What was your favorite part about the entire experience?: I loved that Ashlee was able to incorporate all of my personal touches in my shoot. This made it that much more meaningful!
How did you feel when you saw your portraits?: I CRIED!! To see the look on my husbands face and to realize that it was me on the screen that I was looking at, it was a surreal moment for me.
Do you have any advice for other women who may be interested in their own photoshoot?: Don't over think it, your out fits to your makeup, just know that you will look gorgeous in whatever you have whether that be a T-shirt or only a pair of panties and heels. Robin knows how to make you look flawless and Ashlee has a way with her camera to capture your beauty in any pose.
Did anything change about the way you see your own beauty as a result of your session?: Absolutely!! I now see myself in a new light. I mean I've always felt beautiful, but there is something about seeing yourself so vulnerable, so exposed that changes your opinion of yourself in a great way when you see how beautiful you can be even with the "flaws" you think you have.
How did you like working with Ashlee and Robin? : There are really now words to describe accurately how much these ladies did for me that day. From Robin waving her magical wand (lol) to Ashlee finding the perfect lighting (lol) but beyond that they made me feel so comfortable and unafraid to break out of my shell.
