I am so excited to share this photo project I have been working on…the body positive photo project! I was absolutely in awe with the whole body positive movement that is happening right now…women stepping up and out and posting about their FLAWS. Women who are PROUD of who they are! Loving their bodies in the journey they are in. I just knew I wanted to get a group of women together of all different shapes, sizes, women who are in different walks of life, women with cellulite and stretch marks, scars and all…to lay it ALL out there in bathing suits and just HAVE FUN.
I am very happy to say that it worked! I am so incredibly proud of these ladies, I could just HUG them all. I did it to help other women have a boost of CONFIDENCE about themselves. I did it to promote healthy views of how REAL WOMEN are. I did it to share with the younger generation that it’s OK if you aren’t “air brushed to perfection” and you don’t need to starve yourself or spend endless hours at the gym to feel happy inside. Beauty starts from within and let me tell you, ALL of these women are BEAUTIFUL…inside and out. We laughed until we cried, we played along the shorelines of this gorgeous beach in San Clemente, California. We drank rose and ate chocolate chip cookies after. We had an AMAZING day.
To each of the ladies that participated in this…you are STRONG. You are AMAZING. You are BEAUTIFUL. You helped me share that this movement is more than just what’s on the outside, it’s what’s on the inside and how you feel as well. You are REAL women and I adore you all. Thank you thank you thank you for being a part of this with me! xoxo
I had SO much fun working on this photo project with these ladies. If you are struggling today with your body image please know that you are not alone. Life is too short to not ROCK out in a bathing suit from time to time. This life is precious and we only get ONE body, please respect and LOVE it.
