"At times, do you ever feel like the universe is sending you an oh-so-gentle nudge … and lo and behold, something comes across your lap (or Instagram feed, in this case!) and it ends up being exactly what you didn’t know you needed?
I responded to an Instagram post on Jackie’s intimates page (which I had been following for quite a while – but had never taken the plunge to reach out and inquire) that she was interested in finding a few models for a weekday shoot. I felt that gentle, universe nudge – and applied on her website. To my delight, she got right back to me and before we knew it – I had a shoot set up!
I knew I wanted to do a more “traditional” style boudoir shoot (something I had never done but always wanted to do). Part of the services included having my hair and makeup done – which, let’s be honest – just starts everything off on the right foot! A perfect little gift I might not consider giving to myself – but oh my goodness, did it get the vibes going!
From the very beginning and throughout whole process, Jackie helped me feel relaxed, confident – and my pictures show it! Once we looked through the gallery together, I kept saying over and over “Is that me?!”.
"I couldn’t believe my eyes.
Stretch marks I’ve carried most of my life, nit-picky parts about myself that my eyes usually dart straight toward were among the last things I even noticed. All I could focus on was how CONFIDENT I looked – and truly felt."
"This experience was invaluable to me.
We are always “waiting” on something – had there not been an Instagram call, I might have continued to wait.
Wait until I felt my body was ready – until I felt my skin was perfectly clear – wait, wait, wait.
I AM SO GLAD I DID NOT WAIT!"
"Seeing myself in the here and now and getting to celebrate that – exactly where I am – is the best gift I could have received.
THANK YOU, JACKIE for helping orchestrate this for me!
I will truly never forget my experience."
