Recently, Cara Delevingne expressed how exhausted she is from people who tell her how beauty should look like.
I know that first hand, because I certainly did cut my hair short.
You will never believe how many people think it's their duty to teach you how to leave your life and what they comments were.
I’d love to share the sacred places with you, my friends, because I know that we all need a “big sister” that helps us thrive and keep going.
How often do you print your photographs?
From my point of view as a photographer and consumer, it's essential to have a physical object you can touch and feel. When I first got my 8x10 inch prints from my wedding shoot, I was mesmerized.
That's why I picked 3 places that I want to share with you in order to make your life easier!
We took photos of six women wearing underwear designed by Russian designers and asked them to talk about the evolution of the relationship they have with their own bodies, and if it is difficult to show themselves “the way they are” in a world where beauty is so strictly regimented.
I could've died from anorexia. But I choose to not to.
The true-story that has to be heard shared by Liza Kucherenko. It is heartbreaking. I can't overemphasize how brave she was to uncover the truth about her fight for life.
We've all struggled in front of the camera - in a mirror you see yourself differently from what you get on photographs. As a photographer, I know this very well.

We, women, are very sensitive to the topic of our appearance, usually being so far from objective and ready to hurt ourselves in order to make a fantasy come true.

It is not a genre, it’s an approach.
Originally the French word boudoir, according to the Cambridge Dictionary, means a beautifully decorated room used in the past by a woman for sleeping, dressing, relaxing, and entertaining.
Moi Boudoir is yours by definition. You aren’t doing it for someone else. You are not meant to fit any standards of beauty. You are doing it for yourself in order to make immortal the NOW.
How many words have been said on this topic already? It is always easier to give advice than actually follow it. Of course, no one knows about your problems better than you, because you are the one who lives with this body, not them. You are the one who looks at the mirror and sees every imperfection. You are the one who feels uncomfortable in your own skin. You are the one who tried a million recipes on how to become a better version of yourself.
But you know, this is all fear. None of the methods will work until you gain enough strength to look at yourself and recognize the perfection of yourself at this current moment.
I'd never been the skinniest girl in a room before, and I doubt I ever wanted it. I've never been a diet addict and my measurements were consistent from about age 15 to 20. I got along with myself very well and didn't think of making changes to my body. I've never been told that I have to lose weight in order to look more attractive.
Let me see what else I can lie about here…

Working with people, I notice there are certain ways of thinking that can become the reason for feeling uncomfortable and maybe even disappointed at the beginning.
