What are a few words that describe your style? Always-overdressed, Ever-Changing.
What is your favorite feature about your body and style ( outer beauty) ? Why? My Freckles, Even though they have faded, I still love the freckles that cover my nose.
What is your favorite thing about yourself ( inner beauty ) Why? I don’t box myself in to any one ‘style’ and I don’t follow rules. If I feel great it in, I’ll wear it – whether it be an expensive designer piece or awesome thrifted-find. I am oober sensitive, which means I have a lot of compassion for people.
Describe a time you overcame bad self image? I think struggling with self-image can be on-going. Whether it be when we are young & searching for ourselves or later in life post-pregnancy, it’s easy to lose sight of who we are underneath it all & can be difficult to embrace who we are at exact moment in our life. It’s important to surround ourselves with uplifting people, who really love us – That’s where I gain my confidence.
For women reading this, what is a piece of encouragement you can offer them today? My job has allowed me to photograph many beautiful women, and I can easily say we all struggle with self-image, even those jaw-dropping beauties struggle with insecurities. I think we, as women, need to encourage and love each other which will, in-turn, produce more self-love.
Whats your favorite quote? I’m not interested in competing with anyone, I hope we all make it – Erica Cook.
