For me she. is about helping capture the beauty within each person I meet. I turned 30 this year and finally started to feel comfortable knowing who I am and who I want be for the rest of my life. I think that before now, I didn’t really know who I was. What I stood for. What makes me, me.
When I turned 30, even though I wasn’t my “ideal weight,” “didn’t have anything to wear,” and “hated having my photo taken,” I forced myself to get out and in front of the camera lens. I can’t count the amount of times I have looked back at pictures of me from times when I thought I wasn’t good enough to be photographed and then actually thought- “hey- I looked great, why didn’t I realize it then?”
Tired of looking back, I acknowledged that I may never actually be fully comfortable with where I am in life, however, I am choosing to embrace who I am and to love every day of my life. Since adopting this attitude, it has truly helped me live a more fulfilling life, be happier and spread love and light to others around me.
I wanted to start she. to help others embrace this lesson. If we continue to live looking back to the past or wishing for the future, we will never truly engage in the now. This is our life. It’s time to shine and celebrate who we are-- today.
In my “perfect“ world, all of the beautiful women I meet and photograph will one day learn to love themselves, as they are today. I’d love to help people embrace the gift of the life that they get to live, and learn their value and influence on others. For me, with she., we as a community will help each other embrace our lives, laugh a little harder, and make the future shine a bit brighter!
