Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, and yes, I mean you.
I hear it often enough. “I’d love to do a session with you but I’m not a Size 0″or “I’m not pretty like the women on your site” or some other variation of those. Let me tell you, there is nothing further than the truth. Every woman is beautiful. It’s my goal to bring out the very best of everyone.
Every woman I’ve worked with has voiced some concern about their appearance. Every woman has voiced doubts about whether or not they were worthy enough for such attention.
Every single woman. Period.
I totally get it. We are drowning in an ocean of media telling us what we should look like, what we should wear, what we should eat, et cetera. Women get the brunt of the barrage when it comes to their appearance and how it equates to their success, self-worth and self-image.
This isn’t new, sadly. Here’s my thoughts.
We are unique, with unique features. I love them. I love the quirky, lopsided smile. I adore the Romanesque nose. I cherish the things that make someone unique and distinct.
Bring them on, I can’t wait to work with them. Let’s show you off. Don’t fret about not measuring up to some unrealistic standards that don’t exist in real life. Let’s how the world just how uniquely wonderful and beautiful YOU are.
