Can we talk body image for a second. .
Like most women I know I have extra skin, fluff, softness, stuff around the middle....or whatever you nickname it. This body however has been through a lot. Eating disorders as a teenager and young adult, two pregnancies and deliveries, food intolerances and sickness that I had to cut out literally everything but plants to heal from. .
I am learning that everyday is a gift and that having a grateful heart is a practice. My health isn’t something I take for granted anymore, not after seeing those who’s wonderful lives succumb to ravaging cancers or depression. Losing those people who “don’t deserve that diagnosis” is becoming a common occurrence, and it’s even something I see in my profession as a nurse frequently. .
So ladies, wherever you’re at on your continuum of body image I am here with you. Showing you my extra skin and extra around my waistline. The extra that I tuck into my high waist leggings and jeans. The extra I suck in when someone takes a photo or I wear a cocktail dress that shows off my curves. I’m here with you. .
Raw. Imperfect. A little extra. ❤️
Here’s the flyer for my first We Run The Cities Photo Meet/Print Exchange. I’m encouraging everyone who attends the meet/print exchange, to bring 3-4 4x6 prints to swap with other photographers. Date and location to be announced. Everyone is welcomed.
There will also be a giveaway during the meet so don’t miss out on that!

Nicknamed “The Love Goddess.” Rita Hayworth, a dancer who became a favorite pinup of soldiers during World War II, carried that smoldering sexuality to the big screen, playing one of film’s most memorable femme fatales in 1946’s Gilda.
