Is she just not a ball of fun and light!? I had one conversation over the phone with shaylyn before we met in person for the first time for her shoot and she had expressed her worries about getting her pictures done. We did a little energy work right there before hand and it was such a GIFT for me to be able to see her shift as the shoot went on! I feel so grateful to be on the side of the camera where I get to SEE who women really are come to life!
Having a photo shoot with Janica was a joy and a relief. I have not had photos taken of myself in years, and the thought of doing so has caused me a lot of anxiety. Janica was able to feel this with me and walk me through some exercises, affirmations, and release work to get me prepared to open up and be myself. She was kind, authentic, and patient. She took a sort of “no fuss” approach to the shoot, which helped me to relax and be myself. After the session I experienced a huge emotional release, and it felt like I had pushed through a major roadblock in my personal and professional life.
But the best part was when the photos arrived! The overall quality of the images was incredible. She worked with the light and scenery beautifully. She really captured my emotion, and stuck with a pose until she got just the right look. There were many, many great ones to choose from but there were several shots that were just so perfectly me–it was amazing! They were soft and genuine and beautiful. Seeing those images was like seeing a joyful, empowered, and confident side of myself that I haven’t seen in years.
