All Bodies Are Beautiful (April 2014)
My new series "All Bodies Are Beautiful" is set to launch in June of this year (2014). This series challenges the standards of "healthy and desirable" body types and how they are viewed in society while depicting every size and shape of the female form. I chose NOT to retouch the bodies at all in this series, I used Photoshop to change backgrounds and apply textures but the shapes and sizes of the bodies stay intact throughout every image. I have posted a few images already on my Facebook page and the response has been overwhelmingly positive and very emotional for many of the women viewing the images.
Look for the series on this site soon!
