"My mom passed away the day before my session that I had booked with Cate months ago. I decided to keep my session as my mom always wanted me to do a boudoir. I brought my bestie/hype woman, got my hair and makeup done, and spent 3 hours feeling amazing about myself. I've always had a lot of body confidence even before losing 120 lbs, but this day took it to new levels. This was a gift to me for the weight loss, a gift to hubby, and to honor my mamma. Cate and her glam squad made me feel so comfortable. I felt like a total badass and I know my mamma was looking down so proud of me for embracing my body for all it's done for me."
"When Cate asked me if I’d be interested in doing a boudoir shoot with her I was nervous. Immediate thoughts were I just turned 40, should I be doing this? Then I thought... What would I say to my daughter if she had the opportunity to do something like this? I would tell her to go for it! Quiet those little voices and go for it! Push out of your comfort zone & do something for yourself!!
My comfort level went up like crazy after seeing my hair and makeup! My lips were still shaking when I smiled in the first couple of photos, but she cranked up the tunes and made me laugh and soon we were having a blast. I left feeling really good about having a surprise for my husband, telling my daughter that I did it, and most importantly about myself! I truly believe every woman should do this for themselves!!
"I have to say, I love these more than I thought I would because you can see my birthmark, on my left buttcheek, but I LOVE that!! I love that no matter what, this is the real me, and I feel GORGEOUS and light-bearing in these!
You have no idea how much I needed this session. Just to remind me that I am capable, beautiful, womanly, not just a mom and a teacher and a ball of stress. I’m truly in tears, I feel like Cate saw the me that I want others to see, that I try to portray. She captured that, and that is one of the many reasons why I truly admire her."
