Hey friend! Today, I want to put two things on your heart and it all comes from recognizing that you are worth it!
#1: You exist in abundance. You are enough, you are doing enough, you have enough. Even if you are walking in a valley, you are still doing an incredible job. Look backwards and see how far you’ve come.
#2: True transformation doesn’t happen in one day, so don’t beat yourself up or judge yourself too harshly when you aren’t showing up at your best every single day. You are going to have days where even after making huge strides–you have an off day. Continue to focus on just making one step towards your future each day. Say one positive thing about yourself today, drink one glass of water, walk the first mile, attend one event, delete that one contact out of your phone. Just start, and just do one thing to move the needle in the right direction. All of those little decisions are gonna add up big time for you, sister. Because you were made for greatness.
Will you rest? As best you can. Take some time and rest. Tomorrow is a new day. A day where you will make new mistakes and have new wins. You are the most important person in your life–take care of you. You are worth it!
For far too long, I was at the mercy of other people’s opinions. Every decision I made was dictated only by my paralyzing fear of what other’s would think. I stayed stuck, I didn’t allow myself to dream bigger, I was horrendously critical of myself, and I feared the judgement from others more than anything in the world.
What I realized is that by playing small and not living my truth, I wasn’t serving others the way I’ve been called to serve. I wasn’t making an impact in the way I’d always dreamed. Above all, I knew that I wasn’t living my life for me. In the story of my life, I always gave someone else the pen.
No matter which path you choose, you are always going to have a hater. It’s inevitable. Don’t let that one cloud darken the light that you ARE. Other people’s inability to see your worth doesn’t make YOU less worthy. No matter how outlandish your dream is, don’t ever give it up. Stay in a relentless pursuit of that one thing you lay awake at night thinking about. Always know that you are MORE: more than a student, a wife, a mom. You were made for BIG THINGS, no matter how ordinary you feel.
Above all, never forget: What other people think of you is none of your business.

Teyha told us that she is a young professional that doesn’t get a chance to see herself in a sexy way. All women, young or more mature want to feel beautiful and sexy in different way, not for anyone other than themselves. Teyha was tired of being “cute” she wanted to see a different side of herself and one that we know we could bring out!

“I’m an aerialist (pole dancer, lyra, and silks) and I love the emphasis on female empowerment.”
“I’m a young veterinary professional who’s also an aerial dancer on the side. I found Roosh through a mutual friend and I am SO glad that I did. This shoot was mainly to get some experience modelling in general but it became so much more. I found out how comfortable I can be in my own skin. “
“Roosh does the most amazing job at making her models/clients feel so beautiful and appreciated. Her choice in make-up artists was absolutely incredible as well. She really knew how to bring out the best of my features and in all honesty, I’ve never felt good while wearing make up. That day, I felt like I was gorgeous. I say all of this as a person who goes to work with hair tied back, no make up, and scrubs on everyday. The thing that I appreciated the most, was how much Roosh really wanted to know about me in order to get the best product she could. She also genuinely cares about what you have to say! The final photos are insane! I’ve never seen myself like that and it was most shocking seeing them for the first time. I couldn’t believe that it was me on the screen, but it still had all of my personality. I seriously believe that anyone, at any point in their life, should do a shoot. It is the biggest confidence booster I think I’ve ever had!”
I’m not a huge fan of comfort zones. So, Let’s get past your comfort zone. Rest assured, I want to make sure you are comfortable when you arrive and I’m going to ease you into this process–but I never want you to walk away when it’s all said and done and say “I never let myself go. I played it safe, and I wish I’d really explored more of myself.”
You think you can’t do this because you are a mom who rocks the same tee for four days and lives on coffee, dry shampoo, and a prayer. You think you can’t do this because you aren’t in the same size jeans you wore in high school, or because you have some lumps/bumps. You think you can’t do this because you don’t feel worthy enough/beautiful enough/brave enough.
What would it look like for you if you could break up with all the lies swirling around in your brain that tell you that you can’t be MORE? What would you give to feel celebrated, comfortable in your skin, beautiful in spite of a few things you’d like to change?
Yes, I’m going to push your boundaries of comfort–because you are worth that to me, and because I know the potential that lives inside you.
If I told you that you would go through five minutes of sheer terror, but then gain a lifetime worth of things like: forgiving yourself, self compassion, understanding, self worth, healing, learning to shift your focus from fighting the past to building yourself up—-would it be worth it to you? So, Let’s get past your comfort zone.
And of course, you can keep your photos 100% private! Read more about keeping your photos private, here.

Why we’re sharing this information with Sara’s permission is because many clients reach out to us saying they don’t look like the clients on our website. I convey that they are very much everyday women just like you and me, but sometimes not seeing and hearing from clients directly doesn’t share the personal experience quite as only they can.
“I’m anywhere between a 14-18 depending on who makes it. When I was professionally measured for bras they said I was a 36GG but I wear a 42DDD from Lane Bryant.”
