I stumbled across Caroline on IG and was instantly mesmerized by her work. She has a way of bringing out the “woman” in all of her models. Her photography brings out the sex appeal in her models yes – but there seems to always be a common theme in every shot- The women all exhibit the look of confidence, strength and power!
Of course I had my reservations going into the shoot. I doubted why I was doing it. Was it for validation? What are you trying to prove? Etc.? What if I look fat? What if I don’t know how to pose, etc.? But after talking with Caroline over the phone I was instantly comfortable with her. I knew I could strip down in front of her easily without any judgments. Ha!
My own inspiration: Womanhood!
To be honest I was inspired to do the shoot for myself. I wanted a keepsake showcasing where I was at that particular time in my life. I felt beautiful, sexy, healthy, strong, confident and independent finally! I reached a place in life where I came to realize woman are such amazing creatures capable of anything we set our minds to. We are not in competition with each other – we are in it together to lift each other and inspire each other every day.
Having been a single Mom for almost 10 years I’ve had my fair share of trials and tribulations. I started over – built a solid career – and have raised amazing daughters. I’ve been rejected, I’ve fallen, I’ve failed, I’ve lost, and I’ve been broken. I wouldn’t change it for the world. I showcased it for myself.
