“I met her when I was struggling with a hard time in my life. The summer before my shoot I had been diagnosed with thunder clap migraines which are very rare and yet mine were so severe that the first has me scared to go to sleep for fear of not waking up. My neurologist got that under control but because of the three I had days within one another caused swelling in my brain which led to two months of steroid use and major weight gain. A week before my shoot I had to cut my long beautiful hair off because the preventative that I am on causes hair loss. I was tired of crying every night when I had a shower. My shoot with her brought back my confidence and made me realize that others can see me so differently than I can see myself. She made me see the beauty within myself with every click of your camera. My shoot brought back a spark in my marriage because it built my confidence back up higher than ever before. You make us feel special Cheyanne and the work that you do is beyond beautiful. Thank you so much for all that you do for each of us because each of us in our own ways, have demons of self doubt. You help to dispel those demons.” -Jennifer

“I followed Cheyanne for a short amount of time and fell in love with her work. I knew I wanted to try it out when I was where I wanted to be (weight wise) and thought that I needed a few more months in order to do so. She made an announcement regarding a last minute session that was up for grabs just a few short days ahead. I don't know what came over me, but I said to myself "this is perfect." So I booked with her and I have to say that was the best impulse I have ever made. When I arrived to the studio, I was instantly greeted with infectious excitement from the entire staff. I felt pampered and also like I was hanging out with a group of friends all at the same time. My nervous energy started to subside almost instantly. I never wear makeup and when Georgette was done with me I was so shocked that I could look like that. During the shoot Cheyanne made me feel confident that I could do this and that the photos were good, lots of encouragement going on. I didn't know what to expect when she was done editing my photos, but when I seen myself in that way I did tear up like I never imagined I would. Even with the weight that I am still working on getting off I looked amazing. I didn't even look like "myself." She doesn't hide what you think your flaws are, she accents their beauty in a way that will boost your confidence and see yourself in a different light. I still brag about her and her work and encourage all of my friends, family, and co-workers to give her a try because they won't regret it one bit.”-Annie

“I have always been a “curvy” girl, but when I got pregnant with my son at 20, I gained a lot of weight. I tried a few diets, but I’m not really the diet type person. I became unhappy with myself when I couldn’t lose the baby weight and get back to my usual curvy girl physique. Fast forward eight years and I was introduced to Cheyanne’s work. I was blown away. My husband said I should do a session. Um, no way! But I thought about it and decided I would do it if I lost some weight. I contacted Cheyanne and paid my booking fee. I started working out and was off to a great start. Unfortunately, I did not stick with my diet and exercise regimen. I was thinking of telling Cheyanne that I wanted to cancel my session, but my husband said no. He said he wanted me to see what he sees. I had my shoot with Cheyanne and it was AMAZING! I did the personal shopper add-on, so I did not have to worry about picking out outfits or anything. On the day of my shoot, I went in for hair and make-up and it was so relaxing. Everyone was laughing and talking. The atmosphere was casual and comfortable. I felt like I was just sitting around having a girl’s day. When we were shooting, Cheyanne was so patient! Trust me when I say, posing is not easy, but she made everything so comfortable. After the first few poses, I was really starting to relax and finally got the hang of it. It was so awesome! I didn’t feel shy or awkward at all and before I knew it, it was over. Before Cheyanne showed me my pictures she told me that she had not done any editing except color correcting, and when I saw them I was in shock. The pictures were so beautiful, and they were of me! I had so much fun deciding which pictures I wanted to use on my products! I want to encourage everyone to take the leap and do something for yourself. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! YOU ARE ENOUGH! YOU ARE AMAZING!”- Christy

“I chose to do a session with Cheyanne because I wanted to accept myself the way I was. I read so many testimonials from past clients and I wanted to feel the way they felt: Confident, empowered, beautiful.I have struggled with self image issues for as long as I can remember. Even as a child, I compared myself to my best friend who was always 2 sizes smaller. As women, it's instilled in us at a young age, to always crave being something we aren't. If you're bigger you want to be smaller, weigh less. And if you're skinny, you want to have curves. I didn't want to feel inadequate anymore just because my pants size was double digits or the number on the scale wasn't as low as it used to be. It was extremely difficult to finally convince myself to book a session. Being single, I was worried spending that type of money on pictures for myself was silly. I thought being 22 was too young, and I should wait until I was older and married. I also was petrified of the idea of seeing myself so exposed, and potentially feeling even worse about my appearance. Worried that if i tried to look sexy, I would just look uncomfortable and awkward, and have wasted 250 dollars. And of course, who wouldn't be scared to have a stranger take pictures of them naked.I saw a "short hair boudie call" posted about a year and a half after I had originally wanted to book a session. I figured it's only 100 dollars, and if I hate the pictures, at least I got my hair and make up done. I was so nervous as soon as I booked a date. I chose the furthest out date available so I could mentally prepare. I over think everything, so every day leading up to the session I felt knots in my stomach when I thought about it..I was so scared.The morning of the session, I was inches away from calling and canceling. I was petrified. But, I knew I would regret it if I didn't just get over my nerves and go. I showed up, and my worries quickly drifted away. Cheyanne made me feel like I was just hanging out at the house with friends. It was a surprisingly relaxing environment, and getting my hair and makeup done like a model made me feel like a million bucks!I am SO thankful I didn't cancel. I had no idea how much this experience would change my outlook. For the first time in my entire life, I saw a nude photo of myself, and didn't instantly want to look away or critique it. I saw my curves as beautiful, instead of just extra fat. The person I was looking at in the pictures looked strong, empowered, beautiful, sexy.In that moment, I felt like the most beautiful woman in the world.When I saw the first picture, I knew I was buying them. I finally felt like I was enough, just the way I am. Instead of thinking "this would be really pretty if I was 20 pounds lighter," I thought "DANG! I look good!" Some of my biggest insecurities(my big thighs and booty) turned into some of my favorite things about me.Cheyanne has a talent. A gift. She captures the most beautiful photos from regular women, who know nothing about modeling. The photos are elegant, artistic, and sexy. She helps women see how truly stunning they are. She honestly does want ALL women to feel beautiful and sexy. Old, young, big, small, mothers, pregnant, scars, cellulite, stretch marks. EVERY woman deserves to feel beautiful. Cheyanne helped me see that. I encourage any woman to do this. You will not regret it. Everyone can come up with 10 reasons why they don't want to do it: money, stretch marks, age, weight. But you only need one reason to do it. And that reason is YOU. You deserve to feel like you're enough. Because you are! You can not put a price tag on self acceptance, and confidence.”-Brandy

"My husband and I booked a couples session...In 2017! After Cheyanne having her baby, Tropical Storm Nate hitting, and us having our baby...I finally got into her studio a little over a year later. I was nervous because I wasn't quite where I wanted to be, weight wise, after having my third baby. And the freaking post office held the lingerie that I ordered hostage. BUT...her and Georgette were amazing to work with! I was glad my hubs was there with me. He really helped settle my nerves. We laughed through most of it, got a good workout in doing the poses, and the end products absolutely speak for themselves! Cheyanne made us feel so comfortable and I'd absolutely book with her again! Worth every penny!"- Christie

“All of my life, my family has preached that the smaller the body, the prettier the girl. I grew up knowing I was beautiful, but always if I lost a little weight. I grew up never feeling like I was enough. I'd never be skinny enough, and if I wasn't skinny enough, I'd never be pretty enough. I had finally found a place in my life where I felt beautiful. I was a full-figured teen mom of twins. But at 20, I had my third child and it all came back. My body was gone! I'd have an 11lb baby, lose the weight, finally be getting happy with myself and I'd get pregnant again. I have never been the size I am now until I had my 5th unplanned child and I was too tired to jump in the gym and lose all the weight again. I mean, I have already done this 3 times. I was tired. Now, I'm a bigger full-figured mom of five kids at the age of 26. I'm bigger now than I have ever been. There was like a year and a half I didn't go anywhere. I did most of my shopping online. About 8 months ago, I joined Cheyanne's group and I wanted to do it but I put it off saying "maybe when I lose my weight" or "where would I get the money for this?" Well, a few months ago, I saw she was doing a promotion and I was like "well, I can go and do it and I don't HAVE to buy any pictures". I thought it'd be fun and get me out of my comfort zone. Ya' know, rock things up a little. I was so scared the day I went to take them. I thought so many times about backing out, but with the encouragement of my husband and mother, I was there doing it. I went in and got my hair and make up done and was just chatting with everyone. I almost forgot I was there to do the pictures and then it came down to it and it was a breeze. I wasn't self-conscious anymore. Cheyanne made me feel really comfortable, gave me breaks when needed, and didn't laugh as my whole body shook trying to hold a pose.When I saw them for the 1st time, I was with my husband. I think I was more scared to look at them than I was to take them, but it wasn't what I expected. I almost cried when I saw my pictures. I didn't see what everyone else saw. I didn't see a fat and disgusting naked girl like I thought I would. I saw beauty. It was like seeing myself for the 1st time ever! I went there that day, like I said, not thinking I'd buy any pictures, but I ended up buying the Silver Collection plus 5 extra images in my album! It was the 1st time I have had photos taken of myself that I thought were truly beautiful. So, to me, it was so worth it because I went in that day thinking I was NOTHING and left feeling like the most BEAUTIFUL person in the world and that is all thanks to Cheyanne and her team! They are the most down to earth, easy going, real life people just like everyone else! They went above and beyond for me that day and made me see myself in a whole new light!- Leah
