When you’re different, sometimes you don’t see the millions of people who accept you for what you are. All you notice is the person who doesn’t.”

Jodi Picoult, Change of Heart

I love photographing women.

I love photographing women of all ages, sizes, shapes, races, sexual orientations, and any other characteristic that makes them unique.

Too often women grow up not appreciating their differences; not recognizing their own unique qualities. We are taught to make fun, bully, and criticize each other instead of lift one another up.

And sometimes…we believe what they say.

Sometimes, we compare ourselves to the impossible ideal of what is displayed on billboards, magazines, television and movies, and while looking in the mirror, find it illogical to love ourselves just the way we are.

I want to change that.

I see beauty in every woman, and my dream is to be able to help women see it in themselves. No matter how many inches or pounds you’d like to lose, you are beautiful just as you are. No matter how many wrinkles, sags, dark circles or bags…you are beautiful just as you are. No matter your age or dress size, you are beautiful just as you are.

You are beautiful just as you are. Right now.

And, my camera…she knows that.

Let us show you.

You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
Gautama Buddha
