"I will admit I was a little nervous to shoot these portraits. It was something I wanted to do for myself and share with my husband for awhile but never felt my body was picture ready or even if I could trust someone with something so intimate. Further, when you look at models, especially all over Instagram, you never think you yourself can be captured in that light, or if your body by comparison is even something to celebrate. In a moment of spontaneity and acceptance of “this is who I am, this what I look like and I don’t need the world to validate it” I booked one of Brandon’s last spots for the month and within a couple of weeks I’m standing in a studio with amazing hair and makeup, shaking in my boots.
Once we got started all the nerves went away with his kind demeanour and professionalism. Within minutes I’m sliding around the studio in my socks feeling like a pro! I’ve never felt so comfortable in my skin and for the next 2 hours and the whole night after I was in complete bliss. I’ve never felt so beautiful! When he turned the camera over to show me a shot I almost cried. It was me! Not me trying to pretend to be something, but just me in a really beautiful way.
I can’t thank Brandon enough and can’t wait to see the final album!
If this is something you’ve wanted to do - but felt you couldn’t, just do it and do it with this guy." - NATASHA
