|Some of our monkeys|
I am so glad I did! Crystal was so great and she made me feel comfortable right away. I really felt empowered and beautiful. I have had issues with self-image for a while and this photo shoot wasn’t only a present for my husband but also for me. I did think about editing the photos to hide some wrinkles and blemishes on my body but then decided that I would be covering up myself. I have had lot of self-growth in the past couple of years and really loving the person that I am. It’s been a long road on this journey called life but it is fun to step out of our comfort zones and do something exciting!
Here are a couple of pictures that I will share…the rest are for my wonderful husband because he feels the same as Mark Darcy from Bridget Jones’s Diary , “No, I like you very much. Just as you are.” But change like to love. My husband loves me just as I am.
Oh…for my husband’s present I put the pictures in Microsoft Movie Maker and wrote all the reasons why I love him and set the movie to the music of Christina Perri’s A Thousand Years. I know it’s kind of sappy but he loved it and it brought tears to his eyes. *sigh*
