Between the sheets & the lens

I hear it often when I ask a woman if she has been photographed. The 1 million excuses as to why she thinks she doesn't deserve it come flooded at me.

I have heard them all.

So I wanted to take a moment and let you in on a little bit about me, the woman on the on the other side of the camera.

I have had 17 surgeries, I am a stage 4 endometriosis survivor. I at one time in 1 year lost 100 pounds. I have gained 20 back. I have been bone skinny and six-pack fit and obese. I have had facial reconstruction done because of an accident when I was 3 and some of my own family members have not recognized me. I had to adjust to my own new identity. I am in menopause for the rest of my life. I can't have children. These all have been things that have tried to break me at one time or another.

I have gone through a lot of things mentally, physically and emotionally and had to learn to love my body again over and over again.

Maybe that is why I love photography so much, it documents our lives. The good, the bad, and the beautiful.

When I hear your reasons, I get it, I have lived some of them too. I photograph women of all sizes, ages and I hear their story, as every woman has one.

Let me photograph you, love who you are today, exist in photographs. You deserve a day for you and photographs of them for a lifetime.

Never let it be said that to dream is a waste of one's time, for dreams are our realities in waiting, in dreams we plant the seeds of our future. -Unknown
