Look At Your Body And Call It Beautiful {Vegas Diaries} ~ International Boudoir Photographer

We are so quick to tell our bodies how much we detest every roll, wrinkle, or “abnormality” but very rarely do we hug the softness, caress the bones, and whisper sweet nothings to our vessel, our one stable home.  I headed out to the desert with a bunch of amazing boudoir photographers to celebrate our curves and bodies in all their glory and I managed to get one babe down to nothing.  Miss Kristina of Owl and Otter: Soul Artist stripped down to the beautiful outfit that is her body and became a goddess, reconnected to nature.  With the full moon behind her, the salt flats laid out before her, and nothing but her strong, fearless body that helped her travel across the world to the point where we would meet, she OWNED everything that made her amazing.

My mission as an empowerment photographer is to reunite women with their natural, goddess-like selves but my goal is to also increase the amount of diverse bodies we see online and in social media to make rolls, wrinkles, and “abnormalities” normalized because we are perfect the way we are.  If we see bodies of all shapes and sizes in their natural state, we will look at our own and see the beauty that makes us original.  This shoot inspired me to start a project this summer, photographing all bodies in the natural landscapes around us (I will wait until Spring for us Canadians!) and then create a beautiful coffee table book that is not only full of beautiful imagery, but also inspirational in all aspects: the women braving themselves and baring their bodies and souls, a showcase of a variety of bodies to show that there isn’t ONE ideal, but rather we are all amazing in whatever form we take as long as we are good humans, and their stories about their journey to self love and authenticity!

If you are not ready to get nudie in the neighbourhood, that is alright.  I simply ask that you take some time to reacquaint yourself with your body.  Instead of pinching and sighing in disgust at your softness or bits, simply caress it and decide that your bits are beautiful.  As you do this over and over again, you will start to see yourself differently.

You know how we wish someone would tell us “I love you”? Well, your body wants the same.  If you can’t tell yourself that, how can you expect someone else to say it for you?  Look at yourself in the mirror…open your eyes, take a deep breath, and start a relationship in loving yourself.  You deserve it.

“We all begin the process before we are ready, before we are strong enough, before we know enough; we begin a dialogue with thoughts and feelings that both tickle and thunder within us. We respond before we know how to speak the language, before we know all the answers, and before we know exactly to whom we are speaking.”
