"I've loved Matt's work for going on two years now. There's something about it that's completely unique. It highlights a person's best features and I've yet to see anyone look bad in his art. It's because of this that I wanted him to take my photos. I wanted to feel pretty... skinny... sexy. I really thought about it before I ever brought it up due to my religion and the way I've been raised. I thought, "Is this really something I should do?" After my husband's approval and surprisingly a little encouragement, I had Matt take my photos. I was excited, yet, very nervous. It was one of the best possible things I could have done! I've grown up with super low self esteem as both of my grandpas, (and occasionally my dad) have made fun of my weight my whole life. I've got an amazing husband who always tells me how great I look, and how beautiful I am and I have just truly never believed him. I always tell him that he only says that because he has to. He assures me that's not the case but I just can't believe it. Matt showed me pictures as he took them and I was impressed, then he showed me one where I personally felt like I looked phenomenal! I'm not an overly emotional person but I just started crying because for the first time I felt like I had long thin legs and and a trim sexy body. I felt pretty. I felt sexy. I'm crying again as I write this because I'm truly overwhelmed by how amazing this whole experience has made me feel. At 30 years old and a mother of 3 it truly made me feel amazing. It was therapeutic, emotional, and just plain fun. It wasn't creepy or degrading at all. I don't know everyone else's experiences, why they chose Matt to do their photos, or why he chose to do this type of photography, but I feel like he's an amazing artist with the skills and sensitivity to build a lot of people's confidence if they give him the chance. It was a great experience and I feel like I've gained a friend out of the whole deal. Matt, I'd like to thank you again from the bottom of my heart."
