My team and I always joke that we’ve got a set of very specific hype queens who log onto Instagram during the sessions and really just amp up the energy for everyone. My assistant will laugh and say “[Insert Name here] logged on!” One of those people is our very own Hype Queen Hannah.
She has the most precious energy that is absolutely infectious. The first thing she said when she came into the studio was that she was so excited she’d annoyed all of her friends talking about her session. She said she was excited to be somewhere she could be just super hype about it.
It varies but I was nervous about how I was going to interact with myself during the session. Like many people, I’ve struggled to see and love myself honestly and I was worried that could make the experience less than what I hoped for, you know?
I had followed Good Bodies for awhile and it was one of the only accounts that actively showed persons beyond the thin, young white woman. Tayanna walks the walk that a lot of people just talk. I’m trying to live that principle more fully and completely in my life and my choices. Working with Tayanna was a natural extension of how I want to live my life and how I deserve to see myself.
I loved the whole experience! I felt comfortable, happy, and so delighted by the people who were there. Tay and Haley were so friendly and engaging. I just had a fucking great time.
I honestly would have loved to have had one more outfit. I know that from a time perspective that’s a hard thing to accomplish and it’s understandable to keep it minimal. But I selfishly wanted one more lol
Take some deep breaths, know yourself, and do the damn thing. It’s actual magic and so are you.
