How I Felt About My Own Before & After
"AS A PHOTOGRAPHER AND ARTIST I CAN SEE BEAUTY. I KNOW WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE, AND I CAN FIND IT IN ANYONE."
As a woman, it's often a challenge to see my own beauty. I think i'm perfectly average looking, cute, even. When I pull myself together using some tricks up my sleeve, I'd even go as far as to say I'm pretty."
I decided to do my own self-portraits to get a feeling of what my clients feel. Even though I was taking my own pictures, I still felt nervous. I didn't know what to wear, what I wanted for hair and makeup and oh what if I look really fat, I haven't lost any pounds, I actually gained weight, ugh! Fear came over me and the nerves started to shake me, but I held my ground, and quickly started to shut off the voices in my head that said, "you are not skinny enough, pretty enough, and blah blah blah." When all was said and done, I saw my images and I was speechless.
"SUDDENLY I WAS A WOMAN SEEING HERSELF AT HER MOST BEAUTIFUL, I WAS NO LONGER THE OVERWEIGHT WOMAN,
I WAS NOW SEXY!"
I no longer saw my self as a number, a pant size, I saw My Beauty, my true self. After reviewing all of my images, I saw in some images I was confident, in others I was sweet, and in other images I am elegant and sexy. The greatest challenge I faced when choosing a single favorite image, is that I am a multi-faceted woman with depth and warmth and beauty that no single photograph can capture. I am not a 'before' picture, or even an 'after.' I am an artist, wife, sister, friend, and a whole lot of fun to be around.
"I AM A WOMAN, AND
I AM BEAUTIFUL."
