Hey everyone, it’s me again👋🏻 Today I got to take some new headshots and I am sooo so excited about them! But instead of posting a more professional looking shot, I thought I’d share one that was a bit different.
This shot represents my day to day sitting behind a computer in my PJ’s, working away at your guys’ photos. Although, usually it’s done with no makeup on, but I wasn’t about to take off the amazingness that @kieraandtheglamour did to my face today💁🏼 Body image is something that I’ve always struggled with, so sharing this photo is definitely out of my comfort zone (my heart is literally beating out of my chest right now sharing something so vulnerable). I’ve hated my stomach, I’ve hated my arms, I’ve hated my thighs, my double chin, my acne, the list goes on. But I’ve come to the realization that worrying about these things is nothing but a waste of time! This body has carried me through so many shoots and weddings and work; without it, I wouldn’t be able to do the job I love so much.
Yesterday I attended the Embrace movie screening at @mybodywpg, and man was that documentary ever an eye-opener. One thing that was said in the movie that really stuck out to me was “Your role in life is not to spend it at war with your body, it’s not about how you look. The purpose of your life is not to be an ornament to be looked at, but to do and feel and contribute.” So, from now on, I’m going to do my best to remind myself of that everyday, and I hope you will too✨
