Wesley and I fell in love with this woman! She is so open, joyful and not afraid to tell it like it is. She has experienced a lot in her short life and I think that is what contributes to her sense of humor. I applaud her for creating the healthy, enriching life she is enjoying now.
When asked about her intentions for this shoot this is how she replied: "I want to feel beautiful, strong, innocent. I want to capture conventional “LA sexy” and innocent shining true beauty. I want to do the ballet thing on the street where sex and softness meet. I want a good picture of my butt (I love my but and hate my butt…it needs some more love) I want a picture in nature with my white dress I can give to my dad and mom and bunch of vulnerable nude shots where devotion and shining “I AM” light can come thru my eyes. I can keep those in my little box on my alter. I’m doing this to celebrate being alive, stretch myself, and my devotion to God/ truth/ the divine/ life whatever you want to call it. I want to serve God with all my heart. Above all else, I am still really influenced by my environment (peoples approval or disapproval) and I will check boundaries of others and if there supportive and ok it helps me grow into my edges and know its ok to shine. I know ultimately I don’t need others to approve of me but part of me is still learning about that.
