Alyse described her session like a “gift”, and that makes my heart warm. Sometimes my clients book their sessions as a gift for their partner, but for Alyse it was the gift of self love for herself. WE LOVE TO SEE IT.

Like most clients who come to my studio, Alyse was feeling apprehensive about her photos. She was open to challenging herself and felt comfortable about the shoot, but nervous about seeing herself in the pictures later. Which is a common concern, but it never lasts long. After our time together and seeing herself in a fresh, new light, she has fresh confidence. This is what I’m talking about! 

After getting her hair and makeup done by Kirsty, Alyse chose some pieces from my client closet to help her look and feel her best (learn more about my client closet here!). Her first piece was a cream, lace-up bodysuit that looked incredible in the warm light. If you’re loving it, treat yourself! This piece was perfect for warming up to the camera. Then, she changed into a black, mesh bra and panty set which you can tell she really loved! We used forest green silk sheets on the bed, and it complimented her so well and gave us some awesome moody shots. And, of course, was perfect for the kinky set at the end.

It’s really important to me that all of my clients feel comfortable when they come to my studio and that they leave with a new appreciation of who they are. That’s exactly what happened for Alyse! Our time together to prepare, and making sure she was ready, was so important in allowing her to feel free enough to be herself in front of the camera. I love that she feels less critical of her body now that she has experienced a renewed gift of self love.

What made you choose us for your session? 🙂

Besides wanting to support my friend, I chose you because I knew I would feel challenged yet at peace and comfortable at the same time.

What were you the most nervous about coming into your session?

I was not nervous for the session itself, more so seeing myself in the images after

How do you feel now that you’ve completed the session?

I feel like I’ve been given a new gift of seeing myself in a different light. When I look at myself in the mirror now, I’m less critical of my body. I’m able to embrace my body as it is now in the present and love the curves I have. I’ve gained a new positive outlook and more self love!

What was your favorite part of the session?

Honestly all of it!!

What, if anything, could have been improved about your session?

Not a thing!

Do you have any advice for people looking to book their own session?

Just do it!! Don’t wait to lose weight, don’t wait to gain weight, don’t wait for anything. You are perfect as you are right now.

Would you recommend us to a friend?

Absolutely

Read Alyse’s Review here:

Hannah and her assistant were absolutely phenomenal! Before my session I got lots of help with a prep guide, etc. when I arrived day of, Hannah already had some pieces picked out for me based on what I filled out and it’s like she just knew what would be perfect for me! Not having to worry about lingerie was really nice! The meditation before my session really brought a calmness over me, it was a process.. not just a “show up for your session and that’s it” She took her time with me and made sure I was comfortable! I was able to really let myself go and just be in the moment. I was falling in love with myself and my body literally right there during the session! Could not have asked for a better experience!!
