Self Love for the Next Generation

“I’ve always had issues with my self image.”

Natallie is a beautiful mother of two girls who is now intent on making sure they are well on their way down the path of self love and self respect.

When I asked her why she wanted to participate in this project, she replied that she wanted women to feel proud of themselves. These photo sessions are about “Being proud of who you are as a mom.”

Being a mother of two girls, specially, Natallie wants her girls to learn to love themselves as they are. “I vowed to never say anything negative about myself in front of them. Nothing. I don’t want them to learn that from me.”

“I don’t want them to think… that their mother, the person that to them is so wonderful and special… that if she thinks something is wrong with her, then what’s wrong with me?”

Natallie, you are an incredible mother. The seed of self love that you are trying to instill on your daughters will surely take root. And hopefully, it will take root in all those who read this. Because the truth is that we learn this self hate. As we talked about this subject I myself remember the time of my life when I began to understand the narrow construct  of what is considered beautiful in our society.

The only way to combat this narrow view of beauty is to challenge it. And that is what we are doing here. Challenging what is considered womanly, what is considered feminine, what is considered appropriate, what is considered sexual, what is considered natural, what is considered beautiful.

Natallie, you are so incredibly beautiful. Thank you for participating in this photo series and sharing yourself with us. I hope that you continue practicing self love toward yourself not just for the sake of your girls who admire and emulate you, but also to show yourself the kindness and love you deserve.

May we all remember to be kind to ourselves.

Natallie, you are amazing!

You are beautiful!

You are truly divine!
