“I felt more confident though when not striking a "pose" - yoga pose that is!” - Email from Renee
“I think you need someone to have a sense of who you are to bring out the best.” - Email from Gail
“The photographer talked about how a fancy camera was not needed. That anyone could do this work – with an iPhone and some imagination on how to capture the shots.” - Shannon
