I am whole. I am Perfect. I am Beautiful.

My dear friend and AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER soul sister Kathy Carlisle has always been the brightest most special reflection in my life. When she graced me with the idea of doing a photo-shoot to celebrate my journey and how far I have come I was elated, overjoyed, and a little scared. IM NOT A MODEL I thought, but thats not what this was about. This shoot was about embracing all that I am and confirming that I am whole, perfect, and gorgeous as is (No doing or changing or trying required). This shoot was one of the most powerful experiences of my life, there was nothing but joy, love, laughter, and of course Tears… So without further ado, here I am through the most loving of lenses.

I am so full of Gratitude for this celebration of all that I am, beyond grateful for Kathy, her loving eyes, and skillful art. But most of all I am so in love with ME, every itty bitty part… dark and scary bits included. 

All My Love
