Behind The Scenes…Book The Shoot!

October 26, 2021

Amy- “Beautiful! Ok, hold that pose and close your eyes.”
Me- *closes eyes*
Amy- “What is wrong with you?!”
Also Amy- “THE CAMERA! NOT YOU!”
Cue both of us laughing hysterically.

Now let me add some context to this. I did my first shoot (finally!) with Amy a few weeks back. I had been looking forward to that day for months. Between obsessing over other’s shoots on the Self Love page and living on Pinterest, I was ready. I had all my outfits packed, freshly showered, clean-faced, and there I was on my hour long drive to the studio. While listening to my hype music, the moment couldn’t come soon enough.

Arrival time! I was there. Upon walking in, the nerves started to grow in me. However as soon as I met Amy that all went away. It seemed as if we had known each other for years. The nerves left as quickly as they came.

One may argue, but I believe there’s no better feeling than getting pampered before a day that’s all about you. After the glam squad dressed me up, I felt like I could conquer the world. I’ll admit, I’m not good at “girl things,” so having my hair and makeup professionally done was so worth it.

Once I was all glammed up, it was time to go over outfits with Amy. Cue me dumping practically my entire closet in front of her. Now although I’m generally a shy person, for some reason that feeling goes out the window when it’s time to put lingerie on. I felt 1000% comfortable with Amy to choose whichever outfits for me to wear, regardless of how much or little it covered. But I really love her approach, because I know not everyone is like me. She starts with outfits that cover a little more, for comfort, and then works her way to the more revealing clothes. “Take it off” at its finest.

Here comes the fun part! Again, Amy is a professional at everything she does. We all know that. The way she poses, instructs, and shoots seems so effortless. She vibes with the music, goes with the flow, and made it super easy to match the energy. I didn’t even have to see the photos, I could already feel how amazing I looked in those poses. Now throw in the excerpt of conversation from earlier. We are laughing, I am feeling gorgeous, everything was perfect in that moment. I wished it could stay that way forever.

Ok now I have to be honest. Not everything was perfect. There was one part that I didn’t like. When she called it a wrap and we were done, that sucked. The upside to this is that it’s not necessarily over for you though! With the massage and photo reveal after, the fun doesn’t have to end for you. After all, this whole day is all about you!

In conclusion, BOOK THE SHOOT!!! I would recommend a shoot with Amy for virtually anyone. (Almost) any age, size, color, even gender! There’s a shoot for everyone. Everyone should experience a day like this, at least once in their life.
