I’m a Registered Nurse at caring for a wide age range of patients with Traumatic Brain Injury, Substance Use Disorder, Huntington’s disease, post CVA, End stage renal disease etc. I also teach Kickboxing part time. I’ve always struggled with self confidence issues. I was feeling pretty crappy about myself approaching 40. I injured my back and couldn’t tolerate the intense work outs anymore. Before my session I was worried about being in a lot of pain trying to pose due to back injury. I was afraid that all of my flaws would show in the pictures.
I saw Caroline’s pictures online and thought she was one of the best I’ve ever seen. Seeing pics of other women Caroline has photographed makes me realize how beautiful women are in general… big or small short or tall… and that there is beauty in our differences. But me, I am a work in progress. I’ve had lifelong self confidence issues and insecurities issues so it’s still a huge challenge but Caroline’s VIP group of supportive women help to keep me in check and remind me that we aren’t alone and we all struggle from time to time and that we can pick ourselves back up and learn to love ourselves more and more.
I felt nervous, unattractive, like I hadn’t prepared enough for my session when the day came. I wasn’t expecting to have fun but Caroline had me laughing the whole time. As she showed me pictures on her camera throughout shooting, I was blown away!!! Sure enough my fears subsided, I became more comfortable, and walked out if there with a lot more confidence than I had prior. I always hated posing for photos prior to that day. Caroline knows how to assist you into the most flattering poses. The pictures were flawless and I thought I looked the most beautiful I’ve ever looked.
The shoot itself was a blast, but my husband’s look on his face when he looked through the album was pretty priceless. He was so excited (although I did this shoot for me of course)! we all have imperfections but you don’t see them in Caroline’s photos…. I see myself as pretty darn sexy even with my flaws…I’m learning to embrace those flaws bc they make us who we are as individuals… JUST DO IT. What do you have to lose???? Try to step out of your comfort zone and I promise you will feel better after your shoot and you will love your photos!!!!
