My dream project that is all about body love- accepting the physical features that we had (and sometimes still have) a hard time dealing with and (hopefully) loving them.
The idea is to show people, especially kids, that we all have insecurities but they don’t define us. We can get past them.
And the participants in Volume 1 from Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 are living that life! I cannot thank them enough. Thank you for trusting me, for trusting Dale, for putting yourselves out there. Thank you!
This is the final Part of Volume 1. It features: Francine, Jilleen, Janielle and Dionne. I hope you are all inspired by their stories to be BRAVE. (more…)
#projectBRAVE is about seeing that we all have physical insecurities, no matter our size or shape or colour. But more than that, it’s about getting that we all can and should grow to embrace these “flaws”. It’s about not just living with our imperfections and insecurities, it’s about learning to love them and seeing that they are beautiful. That was the task that Dale-Anthony and I had to execute- photograph one or more (as it ended up) physical feature that people were insecure about and have them see it as beautiful. Easy ting, yea? Ha!
Today marks one year since I first expressed out loud my idea for what would end up being #ProjectBRAVE . It took almost a year to have all the stars align so that it could be executed in line with my vision. I am grateful for the team that I had (see credits at the end) especially my photographer. We took SEVERAL pictures of each participant, emailed the pics to them and I asked them to pick their top five and From those, I’d select a few to post. To show all these pics, I had to break up the reveal over the course of a few weeks. This week you’ll see the first four: Tracey, Jordan, CC and myself.
I hope you enjoy the pictures and that you too are inspired to be BRAVE. (more…)
