Do you ever meet someone and they absolutely floor you? A person who's smile lights up the entire room-street-city-world? A woman who is vulnerable, and geuiuine, and passionate! I have, and her name is Toilisa. Her story is her own to share, which is why I am going to let her take it from here.
THIS IS HER STORY
"I wanted to feel like ART! I wanted to see myself as a beautiful creation. Even more, I wanted to capture the great glory that comes with womanhood. I am not going to go into detail about my battle with suicidal ideation and depression just know it’s a battle that I am winning.
I never realized how truly special Womanhood was because I have always carried myself believing that I was nothing more than the curves on my body. I really thought that all I had to offer was “a big butt and a smile”, but LIFE & LOVE has revealed the truth. but I simply wanted to do something for ME to have my own proof that I am fearfully and wonderfully made!
I needed an artist who captured more than the sex appeal of women but the BEAUTY in us. ALEXANDRIA KENYON!!! Praise hands in the air! I heard about her from Amanda Lynn an amazing photographer who was doing a shoot for my sister, owner of Sarah and Jessie boutique. Are you guys catching this beautiful stream of Women Bosses...cues “I’m Every Woman”. Then I saw her IG page and OMG!!! It was everything you could imagine when you think WOMAN...beautiful, soft, strong, fierce! You can’t describe the gift of being a woman in just a few words and you definitely can’t put Alexandria’s art in a box!!!
When I met her I remember walking into Starbucks super nervous! But then I saw her and was like OMG, She is so down to earth! I have never felt more comfortable...Alex spoke my language y’all! She felt like a long separated sister. She understood all my insecurities and reassured me all the things I thought were my biggest physical flaws were actually some of my most beautiful attributes. Alex has a genuine way of letting you know that being YOU is the most beautiful thing you can do! I was worried about not being able to “look sexy” because that’s not really my thing, I have always been the goofy girl. She looked at me and was like “Girl stop! You’re going to kill it, just relax.”
The whole day was full of laughs! Her listening ear, discerning heart, fierce spirit and creative mind and eye gave me the greatest experience of my twenties!! I have never been more confident! I no longer doubt the power of my dreams! I shot at my dreams to capture the art within me with an A.K. and hit all my targets! Yeah, I’m corny so what?! I’m most grateful that since my shoot, my amazing viewing party and receiving my pieces I have gained even more momentum in achieving my dreams. Simply because I believe in myself, I see myself differently. I’m still a great work in progress but I’m worth the work and I know that now!
I’m aware I’m biased but EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE A BOUDOIR EXPERIENCE WITH ALEXANDRIA KENYON!!!!
