Testimonial of Jill

"When you get married you feel like a princess and wonder would you ever feel like that again, well I’m here to tell you that you do.
Olga phoned me and asked if she could take some pictures of me for her new adventure 'THE BOUDOIR BOOK', well my first thought was, not a chance, me getting my kit off and have photos taken of me in my under wear, I would rather have my teeth pulled!!
well to cut a long story short I eventually said yes, before I went I looked in the mirror and did not like what I saw, to be fair I don’t think there is a woman in the world that is happy with her body, anyway in for a penny in for a pound, she could not make me look any worse than I felt I looked already.
It started of me being a bit nervous but after 10 min I was feeling quite relaxed, this was all to do with how Olga made things easy and at ease, once I stared to feel comfortable I really did start to enjoy myself, the whole time we where talking and exchanging stories, I really don’t think I would entertained the idea to do this with anyone else, you have to trust the photographer, and I trust Olga 100%.
When I went back to see the photos i could not believe that this beautiful women looking back at me was ME! I had been told in a previous relationship time and time again that i was ugly and fat, when you hear it so much your self esteem goes and you believe what they say.
The photos had brought to the surface feelings that I had buried deep inside along time ago, I cried for a bit, and when I took the photos home to my new loving wonderful husband he said that they are beautiful, but its only captured what i see every day, that is what I see and everyone else.
So thank you Olga for bringing back the confidence that I lost, I feel proud at what I have done and the best thing is that I may not like my stretch marks and flabby belly but I can learn to live with them, this is a great opportunity for anyone young old larger (I like to call it well tailored!) thin or has lost confidence in themselves. Thank you again xx "
