to become comfortable in my skin.
like many women, i have struggled
with body image.
more than just thinking i look fat
i have dabbled in binging and then purging
and starved my way through europe in college.
what the hell was i thinking?
my clothes have had serious range
over the years.
size 0 to size 10
and every size in between.
but after 38 years
i have, for the most part,
put the body image issues to rest.
sure i have days when
i like the way i look
and days when i cant stand it.
i have come to accept
that having two children
via c-section leaves a permanent pouch.
but at least i dont have a shelf anymore.
so, to celebrate this acceptance
as well as gift ph with a killer
40th birthday present.
i decided to have a "boudoir" photo shoot.
it was an awesome experience.
it was freeing.
it was fun.
it was not nearly as uncomfortable as i thought it would be.
it taught me how far i have come.
and that i dont look so bad in my skin, after all.
here are some of my favorite shots.
