Long story post! 🤗
2.5 years ago I had a photoshoot with a photographer who told me:
😃 I smiled too big,
😬 had large teeth,
🤪 that one eye was smaller than the other,
🥴 that my right side is my really bad side, to not take pics on that side,
& numerous other things that caused me to leave crying & insecure 😔
She also edited the photo so much that I didn’t even look like me in the end, but rather some plastic alien version of myself👽
I hadn’t been in front of a professional camera since.
So I was less than thrilled when I needed to schedule a last minute photoshoot 👉🏼Also bc I had just taken all of my extensions out, need my roots done, a haircut & had a reaction on my skin last week 🤷🏻♀️
In comes @autumntheodorephotography
Autumn and I literally laughed our way through the ENTIRE photoshoot. 🤣 She had me smiling as BIG as I could, told me constantly how beautiful I am 😃 & afterwards left the little ‘flaws’ on my face.
So this is me 💯 with my real stringy hair, big mouth, sans false lashes, & minimal makeup.
Zoom in to see zits on my forehead & cheeks, a scar on my left cheek from falling rollerblading as a kid 👧🏻, & textured skin from years worth of ongoing cystic acne. 👌I’m learning to love every bit of it 💕
There’s always going to be haters. Do your best to pick yourself back up, replace bad experiences with good ones, & surround yourself with people that are always lifting you up, telling you how smart & beautiful you are💚
Thanks Autumn for being that person for me yesterday 🤗
