“I’ve had the opportunity to experience not just one Blush session but three! Like many women, I struggle with a lifetime of having a negative body image. My first session was a Christmas gift to my husband, which ended up being the best gift not just for him but for myself as well. I left feeling a great sense of empowerment and new level of confidence. My second session was a couples session with my husband for our anniversary; my last session I won through a raffle drawing at a fundraiser.

“When booking my third session I had reservations that the session would never be able to “measure up” to the fabulousness of previous sessions. I can wholeheartedly attest to the fact that each session has been just as spectacular as my first and each built on a newfound confidence from the session before. As I look back and remember how intimidated and nervous I felt approaching my first session, I owe immeasurable thanks to the Blush Beauty team and Tracy for their welcoming, kind and gentle natures, their encouragement and their passion for building women up. Through my sessions and the nurturing spirit and exceptional talent of Tracy I’ve experienced emotions ranging from fear and nervousness to relief, increased confidence and empowerment to most recently a feeling of calm and acceptance. I ran across this quote that sums up how I left my last session feeling: ‘and I said to my body softly, ‘I want to be your friend’, it took a long breath and replied, ‘I have been waiting my whole life for this’.

“The beautiful images Tracy captured are a reminder of my strength and that true beauty shines from deep within my soul. I am forever grateful…” – Ms. J
