During last year I lost 4 1/2 stone and have maintained at target since Jan. I'm healthier and a lifetime of bad eating habits have been changed forever. However, looking at myself in the mirror I still saw that bigger person with zero confidence who spent years avoiding pictures being taken, or using the kids as human shields to hide behind. I needed a something desperately to give me a confidence boost.
Firstly, I think it is fair to say that almost all our beautiful ladies come to the studio feeling very nervous and anything but confident. However, ALL leave feeling fabulously empowered and bursting with new found confidence. It’s always been within them, they just needed a little push from us to find it.
1. Put a little Trust in us.
Our team at curves have got all the tools for making you look and feel amazing. With many years of experience between us, we are experts in the field of fabulousness and we are real people with real emotions too, so we know what it feels like to be out of our comfort zone. Put a little trust into us and we will have you bursting with confidence.
2. Have a nosey at our past shoots.
Our Facebook page and website are filled with photos and reviews from all our beautiful customers, and is the best place to get a feel for what sort of outfits people opt for and the types of poses and angles we use to get the best images of your gorgeous body.
3. Love your lingerie.
Wear what you feel comfortable in. Ok, we know that’s easy for us to say, when you are the one stripping down to your underwear. But honestly choosing the right outfit can make or break your shoot. You know your body well and you know your best and worst areas (although we think you are fabulous all over). Pick your outfits with this in mind and be sure to try them on before coming to the studio so you know they are perfect for you. A well-fitting bra can do wonders for your body, not only giving you an instant boob job, but also defining that waistline.
When you come to the studio we ask you to bring 3 outfits for your shoot, giving you full creative freedom. You can also bring your best heels and any props you want to incorporate, although we do have lots of fun things at the studio too.
4. Feel the music.
Good music can set the tone for your experience. if you have a playlist that helps to get you feeling fabulous let us know and we’ll stick it on during your shoot. From Rhianna to nirvana all music tastes are welcome.
And finally, if after all this, you still need that little extra push, we always have a bottle of prosecco or two in the studio to help you relax and enjoy your experience from start to finish.
From the moment I nervously walked through the door, I was made to feel special. My hair and make up was amazing and then Maddie helped me relax into the various poses as I sipped away on prosecco! By the end of the session, I felt sexy and empowered, two words I have never associated with me before.
I just thought maybe going completely out of my comfort zone is what I needed to bring ' Kim ' back!! My anxiety was high driving to the photo shoot not knowing what to expect. I'd NEVER worn make up, not even on my wedding day but Gemma was incredible with my make up and made me feel the best I've felt about myself in 2 years. I felt so pretty."
