Essay Project: Models Responses (part 1)

I'm starting a new essay project where I ask my models to tell my about their thoughts before and after shooting nudes (some for the first time.) Allowing them to share their experience -- in their own words. There is a link to the Essay Project Beginnings at the bottom of this post. Here are some of my beginning responses from a few models that I have shot in the past:

Model 2010:
(Age: 24,  Regular shoots: 5 times, Nude shoots: Never shot nude before)

"Shooting nudes sounds intimidating and scary, but once you experience it and see the results you'll feel like a Goddess and liberated at the same time!!"

Model 2012:
(Age: 18,  Regular shoots: 2 times, Nude shoots: Never shot nude before) 

"Shooting nude is not as scary as people make it seem. Do not get me wrong there are risk at factor, but there are signs and steps to prevent any thing going wrong (ask Howard LOL). If you feel afraid or uneasy tell your photographer about it.Shooting nude was something i thought i would never do, but you should at least try something at least once right?!(: i was self conscious about my thick body structure, i was unsure about doing nudity until i did it. And guess what ....... My confidence went through the roof, i had a wonderful time , I have learned a lot about my body and built a wonderful friendship with Howard, my photographer. If you are considering doing nudes .DO IT WITH HOWARD. You'll be in great hands (: "

Model 2013:
(Age: middle aged,  Mother of 2 kids, Regular shoots: 3 times, Nude shoots: Never shot nude before) 

" I had the pleasure of working with Howard recently. I am fairly new to the modeling scene and am by nature a bit of a skeptic. Howard approached me to do a shoot. I have never done any nude or implied nude work so I was a bit apprehensive up until the very second I had to take it all off, which I think is a very normal reaction. All of this said, Howard was completely professional and made me feel comfortable every step of the way. It only took a few minutes to relax into the process. I am thrilled that I decided to take on this project. The human body is such a beautiful thing especially when portrayed in an artistic way which is what Howard does. It was a great experience...very liberating on many levels...I highly recommend it and shooting with Howard!"
