This is Jackie. She's a badass fitness instructor. She's a super kind human. When I asked her what drove her to want to do an intimate session she said, "I want to feel confident, sexy and empowered." She was a little nervous coming into the studio. She had been a little nervous while in the JTB Salon with Gina and Kristie. But within a very short time the nerves had left and she was rocking her session. When folks come into the studio what they're wearing is typically expected. Let me rephrase... I either know what they're wearing or have an idea of what they're wearing. Jackie had mentioned wearing some leather and some lace but I was not prepared for the kickass wardrobe she brought. When I saw the buckled leather vest and the crop... a little BDSM... I paused and turned to her and said, "You're going to have to be patient with me. I've never photographed this before and the majority of my posing is relatively feminine and different. This has a completely different vibe." Jackie was super patient and Jamie (my backup assistant for the day) and I talked through different posing and lighting ideas. I really don't know how I ever worked without an assistant. Having Sarah, and Jamie as a fill-in on this day, is truly the best thing I could have ever done. I digress...
I loved the challenge of working with something different and having the opportunity to be creative. I really love pushing myself like that.
How did your session compare to how you thought it would be?
I thought it would be difficult for me to feel comfortable. Erica made it possible for me to feel like I belonged there. That this was for me.
What was your favorite part of your experience?
Realizing that I am a beautiful woman in my own way. I feel more confident in myself.
How do you feel now that you've experienced the session?
Incredible sexy empowered
Would you recommend an Intimate Portraiture Session with Erica Chick to others?
Absolutely. I recommend everyone should try it.
Would you ever do an Intimate Portraiture Session again?
Absolutely. Looking forward to doing a session with my man.
What was your absolute most favorite photo from your session and how does it make you feel?
The photo with the riding crop. This photo makes me feel powerful and in control but also willing and vulnerable. So sexy so excited.
Do you have anything else that you'd like me know?
You have given me an experience I will never forget
