We preach here about having a healthy relationship with our bodies and being comfortable in our own skin. It's sometimes a lot easier said than done to NOT listen to our inner voice that tells us "stretch marks are bad" "your thighs are too big" "these folds don't belong there" or the countless other negative remarks it says.
I'm here to tell you to stop listening to that voice. You and your body have been through a lot and will go through a lot more together in this lifetime. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we shift our focus from doubt and dislike to embracing and celebration?? Miss O (below) did just that! She realized how powerful her curves were - all of them - the curve in the smile of her lips, the curve of her breast, and the dangerous curve of her hips. And she showed all of them off proudly during her shoot. We loved having her in the studio - her energy, charisma, and charm are so infectious! And her dirty jokes kept us laughing the entire session!!! :)
