“I did a For Real Shoot with Trish just prior to turning 50. At that time, we talked about her boudoir shoots.”
“I could see all of the passion she had for helping women truly appreciate their bodies and the effort she put into making them look and feel totally sexy. Who doesn’t want to feel that way? Who doesn’t want to feel that way?
I had mentioned this whole photoshoot idea to my best friend about the same time and she was so encouraging. I kept delaying and she would push. She passed away in February of 2020. I decided right then and there I was going to do this…for me and only me. She would have been so proud of me!”
” Just do it. And don’t make excuses about WHO you are doing it for. . .do it for you.”
“Trish made me feel at ease immediately and I had time to relax during hair and makeup which helped. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a little nervous when we started and I was walking around half naked but honestly, Trish was so engaged in making sure my poses were the best and my hair was perfect that I almost forgot how little I had on… almost. LOL”
“My images took my breath away. I started watching the slideshow gallery and I almost said, ‘who is that?!’… I really couldn’t believe it was me.”
“That is what surprised me…seeing myself as someone else could see me. I kept thinking “wow that pose is incredible” and “holy sh** she is hot” and then I remembered it was me. When Trish says “posing is her b**tch” she means it. Do not wait until you think you will be perfect for the shoot–you are perfect now.
At 52, this may have been one of the most liberating things I have done in my entire life. I felt sexy, strong, empowered and totally badass. I look forward to looking back on these photos 20 years from now.”
