Women’s Bodies

 “I see beautiful, inspiring, real women on a daily basis who struggle with their body image because they don’t feel they measure up with who the media tells them to be. I feel like this is even more poignant in mothers who often feel like their bodies have been ruined when instead they should be respected for creating, sustaining, and nourishing life. So much more needs to be done in our society to embrace body positivity and normalize breastfeeding.  This project started with my story and it has exploded into a beautiful, all-encompassing movement from there. I hope that by seeing the stories and images represented through this work that women feel a sense of identification, support, and self-love.”
