In Front of the Lens | A Lesson in Perfect Imperfection

"The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any." - Alice Walker

 

Coming up with the words for this post is hard. I still struggle on a regular basis with loving myself and embracing my imperfections. If I tried, I could probably pick out half a dozen things in each of these photos that I dislike about them or myself. But I won't because that's not fair to the woman I am right now. 

A close friend said "I think we get so caught up in how we’d like to look that we forget to appreciate where we are right now. We can love our “now” even if we are working towards future goals. Also we are our own worst critics. Those who love us see our inner and outer beauty...it’s important to capture it....life is painfully short at times." It's an incredibly honest view on what happens when we step in front of the mirror.

But stepping in front of the camera is somehow freeing. It's an incredible gift to get to see how someone else views you, even for just a moment in time. It's a moment all to yourself, to embrace your beauty, confidence, sexuality. For a moment, you're not just a mother/wife/daughter. You're a siren, a bombshell, the most magnificent creature to grace the earth.

"Embrace the beautiful mess you are." - Elizabeth Gilbert 

After all. You were born to be real.
