I had an opportunity recently to model for a bridal shoot at The Abbey in downtown Phoenix. I decided to take advantage of this opportunity for a few reasons:

1. Hello Glam! Professional hair and makeup! Who doesn’t want to get made to feel beautiful?!

2. I got to wear an absolutely stunning Berta Bridal Wedding Dress. (Close friends who know my husband and I eloped and decided not to do the fancy dress.)

3. This location was AMAZING!

I recently just had my second son and at the time was about 6 months postpartum. You can start to forget how beautiful you are when you spend most of your days living the “mom life”. It’s hard at first to find your groove and a balance. You might not get as dressed up to do much with a new baby… or two like me. Chasing around a 2 year old and a 6 month old requires a pony tail, tank top and leggings. That’s my go to mom gear!

It was a huge confidence booster wearing a sample size wedding dress and feeling like a Queen! I was very scared and nervous driving there. I felt like I had no business being a “model” at this shoot. I begged my husband to skip work and to be my support system during this to send me some encouragement as the day went along.

All in all it was a great experience and I’m really proud of myself for stepping out of my shell.
