I put out a model call for curvy, gorgeous women and Amanda was one of the first to respond. It was a huge deal that she was volunteering to model because she’s normally very modest & shy…but she felt like she needed to do something wild and unexpected — something outside of her comfort zone. She had just suffered a major trauma. Her husband, and father of her 2 sons, abandoned them very unexpectedly. It was a huge shock and really tested her. But, since then, she has grown so incredibly much. I admire her, as a woman and as a mama.
As for her boudoir session with me — I applaud her bravery! She truly knocked it out of the park!!
Q+A with Amanda
I had just gone through a traumatic separation from my husband after he abandoned me.
I was scared I would look fat, and am generally pretty modest so this was out of my comfort zone.
Definitely! I made the mistake of not ordering a few outfits in time and wasn’t able to shoot in them. I would definitely recommend, like their website says, to order early!
All of it! Super empowering.
I feel more confident in myself.
