ARTISTS STATEMENT
I've always been interested in life drawing and nude modelling, but always too apprehensive or nervous to get involved. After struggling with body issues over the last year I decided it was finally time to own my body and start to love it! This shoot was the perfect chance to do that and I felt so empowered and free during and afterwards. As I kept taking photos I started to find a flow and started using little props like the flowers and experimenting with mirrors. I wanted to embody the expression and freedom I was feeling by not overthinking each picture - just pressing the button and capturing the moment and the feelings I was experiencing.
