A note about body positivity:
Loving your body exactly as it is in its current state is a concept that speaks deeply to me. As a woman with a belly and some thick thighs (and that interacts with the world even a little bit), I understand firsthand what it is like to be unhappy with your appearance and how much of a challege it can be to love every aspect of your physical being. I retouch and slim my own body for some of my self portraits and because of that, I offer that option to my clients.
You are beautiful exactly the way you are, smile lines, belly rolls and all. But these are your images and it is important to me that I give you the choice of how you want to be represented.
