The styled shoot that I discussed in my previous blog post titled "Magic Shrooms" was in the middle of March 2017 prior to my weight loss surgery and I was so anxious about it. I was uncomfortable in my own skin, having to buy new clothes to try to make myself fit in or feel better and it was depressing every time. The pictures however turned out amazing and even looking back and having lost so much weight already, I look at them with a grateful and thankful heart. Some seasons of life are REALLY hard and REALLY trying but they are seasons. Once you get through them and are able to reflect, you have an opportunity to gain self awareness and knowledge to keep with you for the future. How great is it to know that even when things are the worst they've ever felt, that there is still hope? All I can say, if you feel like I did, stay strong and stay positive and remember that "this too shall pass."
Here are some of my favorites from my shoot with Katie Lea Photography in March 2017, and a little bit of information on my inspiration for each of them.
