Digital Plastic Surgery?
I used to offer body shaping and advanced retouching. Ladies would ask me to retouch their bodies to make them ‘look better’. Even after I photoshopped the heck out of their images, they’d still pick themselves apart, pointing out unwanted curves, lines and other physical traits that they perceive as imperfection or unattractive.
I quickly realized that I was contributing to their negative body perceptions. I don’t want my work to perpetuate unhealthy, unnatural ideas of beauty. I’d rather use my skills to encourage women to embrace themselves at every stage of life. Now, instead of relying on photoshop to artificially change ones appearance, I prefer to take a real world approach. I’ll show you how to look and feel your best on and off the screen without the need for a digital nip and tuck.
I'm happy to hide a pimple or two but I no longer apply additional retouching these days and I have no regrets. Neither do my clients. When you look at one of my images, you'll be seeing your true self. Whether you’re skinny, curvy, tall, short, young or mature, own it! None of those words are synonyms for ugly or undeserving. Not a single one!! Be confident that you are beautifully and wonderfully made in God’s image.
