before_and_after_2_verticalWhy did you want to do a photo shoot?
I am using Rayleigh’s photograph services to help me photo journalize my weight loss journey. I started in 2013 and just completed my 2014 shoot. I’ve lost 48 lbs in the last year and it’s so inspiring to see the difference in the photos.
