The raw experience is something that is completely out of my comfort zone but it was something I felt compelled to do. The photo shoot was an amazing experience but, for me, the real experience was the reveal. Jacqui has an amazing gift of capturing a woman’s essence and her true self. I was finally able to see myself through the eyes of my husband and those who love me and for that I will be forever grateful.
My r.a.w. session was one of the most empowering things I’ve ever done and I never would have done it if I’d never met Jacqui. The way she empowers others and makes you feel like the most beautiful woman in the world is truly amazing. I believe that having a photographer that you trust and are comfortable with is key and that is Jacqui.
It is incredible how comfortable Jacqui made this entire process, from the first inquiry to receiving my final product! I'm in LOVE with my pictures, and how much confidence and happiness it gave me.
I was at a low point recently. Just felt “blah” about myself. Scared about my new job, not looking forward to a Montana winter, you know how it goes. Sometimes you just lose yourself. Luckily, Helena is filled with wonderful people like Katie and Jacqui who took my “confused self” in, made me over, and captured me in a way I’ve never seen myself before. Talk about a mental boost and confidence builder! Highly suggest all you ladies run (don’t walk) over to Floating Leaf and get yourself a “self-rebrand”.
"Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired." -Robert Frost The most incredible, liberating, vulnerable experience I’ve had as a woman! The results were breathtaking, to finally see myself beautifully flawed and whole... every imperfection a devastatingly gorgeous reminder of my journey.
Just do it ! I promise it will the most fun you have ever had at a photo shoot and you will love the images . Jacqui has a way of seeing your flaws in a way you will find beautiful!
I did a r.a.w. shoot with Jacqui for my birthday and let me just say, WOW! She made me feel so comfortable and confident in my own skin! She was very professional but so fun and laid back! I was speechless and brought to tears several times picking out my photos. I'll definitely be doing another shoot. Thank you Jacqui, for making me feel like a million bucks!
To allow ourselves to be seen entirely in our truth, to expose our soul at risk of attack, to believe we are worthy of unconditional love indefinitely, these are of the most courageous acts of the human experience.
"Beauty is being the best possible version of yourself inside and out" These pictures mean so much more to me then just how i look in them! Looking back over the years and the goal i set for myself to make "changes" and to be a "stronger" better version of myself doing pictures like these never would have crossed my mind. With hard work, dedication, perseverance I have found my confidence, my worth and my value again! I've grown and evolved into the person I am today. I have many solid changes I have made and see them everyday. I'm a stronger woman than I have been over the years. I love the transformation I have made of myself physically, mentally as well as emotionally. I AM ENOUGH! Thank you Jacqui for taking these pictures and providing me a visual of everything I have worked so hard to become. I absolutely loved this photo session, and these pictures!"
“At the risk of sounding cliché, my RAW session was probably one of the most unforgettable things I’ve ever done. I was initially nervous about doing a boudoir style shoot but Jacqui’s professionalism and warm hearted personality totally put me at ease. The end result had me in tears! I’ve never felt anything like I did the minute I opened my album. Jacqui’s incredible artistry let me see myself in a way I didn’t know I could. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so beautiful! Even though it was a gift for my hubby, my RAW session ended up being one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself.”
"Amazing experience! Jacqui made me feel confident and beautiful during my RAW session. She is very professional and excellent at what she does!"
