Over the past 6 years, more than 600 women have stripped down in front of my camera to rediscover their beauty. In crafting nearly 400,000 frames of these beautiful humans of all shapes, sizes, and colors, I’ve discovered firsthand just how deeply damaging our culture’s obsession with beauty propaganda is and how true it is across the board and across all ways of life. Sure, we can all head down to a doctor’s office and change what we don’t like seeing, but will that heal the way your brain interprets what it’s seeing?Here’s what Ms. N had to say about her Self Love Experience.
“Ever since I can remember, I’ve always been extremely insecure when it came to my body and my lack of curves. Society, and especially black culture, makes it difficult for those of us who lack those desired shapes to feel secure. I even went to a plastic surgeon for a consultation for a BBL. I don’t judge any person who does make that decision to have plastic surgery, but I decided to invest that money in an experience instead. In myself.
You may be able to change your body but self love and acceptance comes from within.
Our bodies are art. Fall in love with yourself. Although it was my second boudoir experience, it was my first with Lindsay. The experience was just as liberating and empowering. Lindsay is AMAZING and you can tell she loves what she does and it shines through during the session. She makes you feel so powerful. Natalie is an artist and really made me glow with my makeup. I’m usually simple but I let her take the reigns and she made me feels so glamorous. I loved it. I just have to say. I’m forever grateful and happy I decided to do this shoot. Invest in yourself.”
