Almost every single woman I photograph whispers, yells, messages, hints, and finds some way to let me now what body part she is hating.
1. Just make me look skinny
2. Photoshop these wrinkles on the sneak k
3. Keep me behind everyone, hide me!
4. Can I pay you extra to photoshop off 10 pounds
5. Hide my Mommy tummy
6. I'm just not photogenic
7. I hate cameras
And about 100 more. I get it, we all have stuff. We're all worried. We have crazy unhealthy expectations of ourselves and we're never quite meeting them. But girl, I want you to know that I GOT YOU! Tell me you're worries but honey I got you! I got that too! I have the Mommy of 3 tummy. I have the ugly ass elbows. I worry about my nose and angles. I have crooked teeth. My collar bone is hella big! You don't see it? Shit I do! We all have worries no matter our age and stage in life. But you know what?! We're gonna celebrate those killer eyes and all of the features that make you exquisite. I'm gonna ask you what you love about yourself. When you leave you're going to feel like the goddess that you are. There are clothes to accentuate every body. And I want you to celebrate the stage of life that you're in. You want to lose a few pounds, you have a new Mama tummy, or whatever it is, it's okay. Our bodies aren't meant to bounce back. There need not be all this bouncing! Seriously! So slither outta those spanks, worry not about the smile lines, and relax about everything between the crown of your head to the tips of your toes. You're beautiful! Repeat it! You're beautiful! You're worth celebrating! And I am so thrilled to celebrate you with you. Let's photograph your strength, your laugh, your motherhood, your birthday, all of the things. Let's celebrate you. I got you!
