Miss D - Your body and soul transformation is just so inspiring.
You came to me to celebrate an incredible accomplishment. You lost a significant amount of weight (scroll to the bottom to see her before photo) and gained poise, a fabulous new wardrobe and the confidence to step in front of a camera as my model.
Your story touched my heart. How you spent your whole life hiding behind your weight. How you always wondered what it would be like to feel beautiful. You spent decades caring for others and completely neglecting yourself.
You said the doctor told you that your body was not just heavy, but that you might not be around very long to care for those two beautiful boys you love so much. That was your wakeup call. Who would have guessed that the woman who emerged would be so much more than you already you were. You were already kind, you were already giving, you were already smart... they were just eclipsed by your fear of being seen.
Your doctor helped you on the journey and you absolutely nailed it. You were healthy, you were strong, you were ready to conquer the world and you asked me to help capture that in you.
So I asked if we could film you. Your personality is just captivating and I wanted YOU as a representative of everything boudoir is to Lavish. You said yes!
Your makeover with Edgar Campos was stunning and you warmed to the camera so quickly. Red lips and your velvety dark skin were just a dream to shoot.
Thank you... thank you for taking care of yourself because you are an asset to this world. Thank you for trusting me and asking to be photographed. Thank you for agreeing to let me share your beautiful story with the world.
You are such a blessing.
