I've photographed a lot of women in my life. I mean, a lot. And I know some people with curves don't like to be photographed. When they're in front of the camera, they get very uncomfortable with themselves, hugging their bellies, telling me about their problem areas rather than enjoy the shooting experience - of me capturing how beautiful they really are.
But in my experience, even models and actresses have major insecurities. Some, even more than curvy girls! So I'm thinking, I guess all of us women do feel some kind of hatred against some body part we don't like: butt, thighs, double chin, stomach, wrinkles, nose, and even ears! Size doesn't matter. We're all hard on ourselves!
What I'm saying is, I think we do need to embrace who we are, what we are, and love ourselves at some point. No matter how difficult it may be. When we learn how to love ourselves, we probably will become easier to love. Imagine all the positive energy flowing from us! We become more likable around other people. And we can give out more love since we've stopped focusing our energies stressing on our flaws.
So, yes. A million yes-es! You're beautiful.
