"Too Much to Handle" - Julia's story

Last year, I had my first child, a beautiful baby girl. As much as I love her, I didn't love my body afterwards. Everyone tells you how miraculous it is to have a child, and it is, but they forget to tell you it may have a huge impact on your self esteem afterwards. For me it did.

Shortly after my daughter was born my mother passed away unexpectedly. It was so hard and caused a huge ripple in my family. Being a mom for the first time, and then losing mine before she could even meet my daughter in this crazy pandemic, killed me inside. Then, I lost a dear friend to suicide, and then another one of my best friends in this world months later. Needless to say, this year had taken a toll on my physical and mental health.

In 2017 my husband bought me a pinup session with you as a wedding gift.

I left never feeling so amazing about myself.

So this year I asked my husband for another session for Christmas, and he was fantastic enough to get it for me. Being literally the worst year of my entire life, I needed this. And it was exactly what I needed. Katya and Julie were amazing. They made me feel so incredible and we're constantly bringing me up! I felt so great afterwards I cried literal tears because that was the first time I was able to feel strong, sexy, and confident in a long time. Thank you sugar and spice for kicking a**.

You can't put a price on getting my confidence and self esteem back.

You WILL see me again. Julia
