I spend a lot of my time working on teaching women to see themselves as beautiful.
I also spend a lot of time teaching myself how to feel beautiful.
There’s something ingrained in our society that says a woman’s worth is tied up in her appearance.
While I certainly want women to feel beautiful.
I need to clarify something.
That’s not all that you are.
You are more than your skin and bones.
You are more than your pretty face or tiny waist.
You are a compilation of your rich history.
The people who have loved you.
Those that you’ve loved and lost.
The intent behind your actions.
The way that you have learned to see and treat the world.
You are all of it.
Our beauty is derived from the inner workings of our being.
It’s not the shape of your nose or even the curve of your hips.
It’s the way you radiate from the inside.
The key to self-confidence my dears.
Well, that lies in seeking a better life for yourself.
Taking time to care for your body.
Placing a priority on kindess, forgiveness, and grace for the flaws in yourself and in others.
While I love photographing the female form. I’m seeking to capture more than that.
It’s the radiance within you that I’m looking to discover.
That’s what it’s all about.
True beauty. It’s not universal.
That means, there are going to people who aren’t attracted to it.
But, the ones who are.
They will be raving fans.
with love and true beauty,
