Q: How did you first hear of Rachel Jasmine Studio and what made you want to book with us?

A: My initial reason for booking was, “hey this will be a great wedding gift for my husband”. It more so turned into something that was more for me and he just gets to see the outcome. I saw all the variety of women’s stories and knew it was my turn to be seen, to feel beautiful, to be wanted, so i booked!
Q: Did you have any expectations going into the shoot? What were they?
A: I had NO idea what to expect! I was beyond nervous, I didn’t know if a bigger woman like me would be able to look like all these others women that RJS has photographed. RJS made every part of the experience comfortable and made me feel on top of the world, it was amazing! The entire day was beyond what I could have ever expected.
Q: What was it like seeing your images for the first time?
A: After my first pose while shooting, Rachel showed me my image on her camera and WOW! I did not know I could look so sexy, it was mind blowing. The rest of the shoot from that point on was amazing, i was way more confident and couldn’t wait to see my photos in a week. At the photo reveal I was shocked that I in fact did look just as beautiful and sexy as all the other woman RJS has photographed, it was like a mini dream came true!

I have always struggled with body image, never wanted my photo taken if it was more than my face…WELL not anymore!! RJS portrayed my body in a way that I needed to see for myself. As a woman I was scared to show my curves, belly, arms, but really what this experience has done for me is given the confidence to embrace it. Embrace it all.
