I have photographed women that think they are unattractive as well as women that see themselves as beautiful. Interestingly, even the women that see themselves as beautiful usually have something about themselves that they don't like.
I find it even more interesting that the rest of the world usually doesn't see us in the same way that we see ourselves. We are convinced that everyone sees what we think are our flaws. We are usually much harder on ourselves than the rest of the world. Yet, we would never believe that. We are convinced. We think that everyone thinks our nose is too large, our ears stick out too much or _______ (insert here the thing that you don't like about yourself). But, it's rare if someone else even notices such things.
What freedom we would gain if we weren't so hard on ourselves. If we would stand back and get a realistic look at ourselves. But that's very hard to do. Often, it takes someone else to help us see that. I'm lucky enough to be in a position to help women do just that. Through beauty inspired portraiture, I help "everyday women" see themselves as beautiful. I help them start to believe in themselves. You can see the moment it happens. It's a wonderful transformation to witness.
