Shep has taken over her boss’ app and website for the week and on Thursday, she shared new behind-the-scenes photos from Kardashian West’s naked desert shoot. Back in early 2015, the reality star left little to the imagination when she posed with only white paint covering her.
“For this photo shoot, I snuck Kim out of her house in the little car I had at the time and drove to the desert a couple hours away to meet with photographer Kesler Tran,” Shep described some never-before-heard details in her latest post.
Back in May 2015, fans were able to follow along with Kim and Steph for this specific shoot during an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. At the time, North’s mom said the purpose of the desert shoot was to create new content for her website in addition to embracing a body insecurity.
“I have psoriasis, there is nothing I can do about it so there is no reason why I should feel uncomfortable,” Kim explained in the episode. “So to make myself feel better I lay out all my insecurities before we start a shoot in the hope that no one will be focused on that. I just want to do fun and artsy things. I want to capture really cool moments and have some great shoots and be nude and do all this cool stuff.”
Kardashian West’s team – including hair stylist Chris McMillan and makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic – was able to go incognito, even making a pit stop at KFC before arriving at the desert.
“We ended up in the middle of nowhere in the desert. Luckily, Kim managed to go undetected and had this incredible photo shoot with Kesler! We were there the entire day,” Shep continued in her post. “Kim just literally dropped her robe and was completely naked in broad daylight—she looked amazing!!! I got to paint the white paint all over her body and oil her up, which I know is probably a much-desired task, LOL. It was just a really fun shoot. On the way home we were hungry again, so we stopped to get In-N-Out.”
This is far from the first naked photo shoot Shep has observed as Kim’s assistant but this specific shoot was inspiring for the assistant.
“I’ll always remember this day because I really saw how fun and fearless Kim was. Her confidence inspires me to be comfortable with myself,” she concluded, adding, “She really does bring that out in me. She encourages me to stay motivated, try new projects and push myself personally and professionally—while still having fun.”
