Mallory and Boone are one of the sweetest couples I have ever met. It is hard to deny the love they have for each other. I have had the privilege of knowing these two for about two years now. They are a beautiful couple and are so supportive of each other in all of their adventures.
We all love a good fairy tale. Young or old, all can relate to the fantasy world of good vs. evil, hopes and dreams, ball gowns and crowns, happy endings and new beginnings. I started this project in July for two of my best friends who are big fans of some very well known fairy tales. I wanted to create a photo project that captured the essence of these popular princesses, a project that would speak for itself.
I hate the dressing room... its evil. I have had body image issues for as long as I can remember. I've heard it all; I need to love myself, embrace my curves (I know you are probably thinking 'what curves', just because you can not see them does not mean they are not there), just love the body I have. However, its easier said than done. I struggle not picking myself apart every day. I have made major progress but have miles to go.
In a society full of technology and fast paced mentalities though, we do not stop to fully enjoy and appreciate the beauty out there. I started this project as a way to explore and study the beautiful shapes and forms of nature. Sure a leaf is a leaf, but have you ever stopped to realize how many different shapes and sizes leaves come in? A lot! And they are beautiful!
