I love the story behind this shoot! This lucky girl has 3 aunts who surprised her with a Photoshoot gift card for her birthday. Now you’re probably thinking she’d be thrilled. Her mom was, but Cristina, not so much! A little surprising, right?! I’m going to let Cristina tell you the rest…

[BEFORE] My biggest concern was posing in front of the camera. I was super nervous that I’d feel awkward and wouldn’t know how to position myself. I would never consider myself a “model”, so I was a bit skeptical that I wouldn’t like how I looked in the end result.

[PHOTOSHOOT DAY] At the beginning of the photo shoot, I was definitely a little nervous. But after just a couple minutes, I felt more comfortable and felt even better as the shoot went on. By the end of the shoot, I wasn’t worried at all.

[FINAL IMAGES] When I saw the photos, I didn’t believe it was me. I had never gotten professional photos taken before, and I didn’t know what to expect. The photos were beautifully taken and I felt so confident in them.

[WOULD YOU DO IT AGAIN] I would tell anybody to just do it. It pushed me outside of my comfort zone, but it was such a rewarding experience. It was so cool doing something new, and I will remember that day forever :)

Thank you so much to you and Riley for making this such an amazing experience for me. Your kindness made me feel so comfortable and beautiful! Things couldn’t have gone better.
