A couple weeks ago I was photographed nude by Easton Richmond, a phenomenal fine art photographer. I was unabashedly one of those people who absolutely, never, no-way, nuh-uh, are you kidding me, did not think I would. Ever. Do. Something. Like this. And yet I did it? I’m on the other side of it now and I did it. How the heck did that happen? Well, I’m about to do my best to explain how I got from one crazy end of the spectrum, to being on the complete opposite end – actually looking forward to the next time!
The absolute hardest part for me was saying yes to the date. Being the schedule-obsessed person that I am, to me that was the moment when I could no longer change my mind. I think it took me roughly 5 days to respond to that email. More than once I would start thinking about it and momentarily allow myself to give in to the little voice saying – “What are you thinking? You can’t possibly do this!” Somehow, in a fit of confidence and strength (brought on by sun and beer) I worked up the courage to respond to the email with a meager, “Sounds good.” I was not feeling super pumped but I was feeling determined.
