Working with Keidi was, in many ways, a miracle. Before our session and shoot, I felt very stagnant in my self-love journey—I knew what it meant to love myself on a logical level, but I didn’t know how it really felt in practice. Our one-on-one chats were a great way for me to reflect on how far I’ve come, and the things I still have hang ups about. While shooting, I felt so incredibly comfortable with Keidi—not only in my own body but in myself as a person. I didn’t realize how connect my self-worth was to the perception I had of my body—working with Keidi helped me separate them. There’s nothing more liberating than feeling comfortable in my skin, and I don’t think I’d ever felt it so genuinely until I got to shoot with her! Even three months after our photoshoot, I can confidently say that I haven’t felt the self-love lows I experienced daily before. Once you see the other, beautiful side of body acceptance, you can never look back. Better yet—when I do have those temporarily down times, I have 20 stunning images to look back on and remind myself I AM THAT BITCH! The wonderful Keidi did that for me.
After working with Keidi everything in my life started to shift. I got the courage to give my two weeks notice. She was the first person I had to tell - after all I could not have gotten the encouragement to truly take a shift and be in charge of my own life.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart! You made me see things I had dreaded all my life with a new sense of compassion for myself. I could not have done this without you and I appreciate your encouragements and words of wisdom. Thank you for putting up with me and helping me through some deeply rooted issues. Like you’ve said this is a journey and I know I will be able to handle things better with the tools and practical tips you have provided.
The part that resonated the most with me was about having your life align with who you actually are. And maybe figuring out and sitting quietly and getting to know yourself. I also loved the talk about not being able to give from and empty vessel. I loved Keidi’s perspective about creating a positive environment on social media where you can lift yourself up by controlling who and what you follow and engage with. It was great and so impressive.
