Today, I want to talk about body image.

The definition of Body image is the perception that a person has of their physical self and the thoughts and feelings that result from that perception. These feelings can be positive, negative or both, and are influenced by individual and environmental factors.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way. I want you to look at my (UNEDITED)  portrait 👇👇👇👇👇

Now, let me be completely  transparent with you.  When I first saw this picture, i hated it. And I refused to post it. I will  tell you why. I hated it because it point out my imperfections back at me. It reminded me that my 2 pregnancies stretched my stomach to the max in my life. It shows the extra rolls on my side. And it shows the insecurity on my face because that was my focus while taking the picture.

How many of you can relate to the feelings and emotions of seeing a photo of yourself and immediately  wanting to delete it?

Why is that?

Who told you that you were not beautiful with your rolls and stretch marks?

Who are you comparing yourself to?
Why have you been comparing yourself to others?

Who wrote the rules on whats perfect and whats not?

These are the same questions I had to ask my self and come up with answers.  It caused me to do some deep soul searching. I realized those thoughts about myself were not healthy thoughts.  They were self sabotaging and  damaging self thoughts.   I forced myself to look at this picture and point out beautiful things about what I disliked.  I looked at my stretch marks and told myself those of the most beautiful  marks on my body. Those marks was produced so that i could have this 👇👇👇👇

Aaaaaand

My 2 beautiful young gems💎


Then I went to my rolls or love handles. I couldn’t come up with anything lol so I said giiiiiiiiirrrrrrrrl  its probably all kinds of muscle up under there lololol And thats another thing….laugh at yourself from time to time. Stop taking yourself so seriously.   Feeling beautiful  doesn’t start from the outside. It doesn’t start once you lose those extra pounds. NO!! It starts right where you all. Stretch marks with love handles with a side of extra cushion.  Its not in everyone’s genetic makeup to be a size 2, 5, or a 10. Find the beauty in yourself right now then work on the physical improvements.  Whoever you are, I think your imperfections are a beautiful part of you.  Until next time…


1. YOU’LL LOOK A-MAZ-ING!!

You’ve heard the words “Boudoir photoshoot” right?, but what exactly is a boudoir photography photoshoot? And why Should you get one done? A boudoir session is a photography session where you wear sexy outfits, lingerie, dresses, and get your photographs taken.

Professional makeup, a professional photographer, and professional retouching equals some of the best portraits of yourself that you’ve ever laid your eyes on.
