ABOUT THE PROJECT

The project started as a thought about how women hate to be photographed, and how it's usually because they think they're "too fat" to be in pics.  I wanted to take photos of women that made them feel beautiful.  I wanted to show women they were beautiful all along.

Then I started thinking about diet culture, and the pressure our society puts on women to be "perfect'.  I wanted to celebrate women who refuse to conform. 

 

But I also wanted to help women who struggle.  So I thought, if I could take a portrait that made them feel good about themselves, that could be the start of something big,

And it's been a few years, and many portraits.  I'm always looking for people to join the project, so here are the rules.

1. There are no rules:  We can do whatever you want. Any idea. You can be naked, wear a ball gown, climb a tree, bring your kid, whatever you want.

2. I have ideas: For every person, I have a "vision" in my head of how I'd like to take your portrait. You can say no to my vision. You can bring your own vision. We can experiment and have fun.

3. Portraits are focused on "body positivity": The only "rule" of this group is to be body positive. That means the focus is on loving our bodies. If you don't love your body, when we take pics, you might end of loving it. Naked, clothed, a suit of armor, wear what you want!

4. Posting your portrait: I will edit images and send you a link. Hopefully you love the pics. If not we can shoot more! It's up to you if we share the images and which ones. It's your choice.

5. How much does it cost? Nothing. This is a "passion project" for me. You can donate a money to go towards my studio rent.  You can donate clothing or accessories for other's portraits.

This project started out focused on women. 

But I am opening it up to all humans.
