"On the day of the shoot I was so hesitant to do it because I was in such a dark place and a terrible headspace. I felt like I didn’t deserve to be beautiful. It had been two months of struggling with an unrelenting numbness and disconnect from the world and myself. I was depressed. I was suicidal. But with the love and support of my partner who encouraged me to go that day, I pushed past everything and did it. For the first time in a while, I connected with my self. It was a fleeting moment but one that I will forever appreciate and hold dear. I felt beautiful. I felt worthy. I felt empowered.
Every day that I wake up with even a sliver of motivation, I work my hardest towards my recovery. My world is so beautiful and precious and I’m determined to be immersed in it. Thank you @studiorepublic for showing me that I am empowered and beautiful and capable."
"Firstly, the photos - and the feedback I've received from them - speak for themselves. I've never seen myself like that before - so confident and bold! I was amazed at the transformation and how the team were able to capture that. They did an excellent job at taking my half-baked ideas of what I wanted and deliver above and beyond.
But secondly, and more importantly, the experience of the shoot was second to none. The comfort and joy seen in the photos were testament to the whole team and the experience. The whole setup of the studio, the warmth and encouragement for the team and their clear expertise put me immediately at ease. And it carried through to the end. I had such a crazy but unforgettable experience with Studio Republic and I'm so happy I've got these photos to not only show off but also to remember the day."
"Thank you so much again for the experience. I had a blast and the photos have come out great!
You made it a fun environment and it was great having such an open and interactive direction when shooting. I really benefited from all the suggestions and it felt like a fun and professional collaboration."
