Bodies change. We all know it. We all go through it. And yet, we’re often judged for it or made to feel shameful when it happens. Societal standards are a b*tch. They’ve influenced us to care more about what we look like than what we think and act like. No matter the reason behind our changing bodies or the other things in life we’ve accomplished, nothing feels more important than having the “right” look.
When Angela booked her Boudoir Session as a part of our Body Love Project, this was an area of struggle for her. An obstacle that she has been working hard to overcome.
Let’s start this off by acknowledging the fact that Angela is a total badass. She’s got a master’s degree and runs her own business for crying out loud! And yet, it’s the comments she’s received regarding her body that have impacted her most.
“…it absolutely kills me.”
As a former D-1 athlete, Angela’s life and body have gone through natural changes. The body she once knew at peak fitness, has transitioned in ways that feel unfamiliar. Not only has she worked on getting to know her body as it is now, she’s also had to experience the new treatment she would receive from others.
“…society is mean when you’re not itty bitty”
Angela confesses that her body, once a non-issue, is now a topic of conversation that she must endure, unwarranted. The entitlement that people feel to offer their advice and opinions to people that aren’t thin mints, is exhausting and unnecessary.
NO 👏🏼 ONE 👏🏼 ASKED 👏🏼
And yet, they’ll offer their “help” anyway. Altering the way that people perceive their bodies forever.
“I look at other big, beautiful women and I don’t think the same things about them that I think about myself – they’re beautiful, amazing, AND worthy. But I just can’t see myself the same way.”
We were so excited to give Angela the space and encouragement she DESERVES through her Boudoir Session with us. And we are so happy that she took the leap, gifting this session to herself as a devotion of her newfound self-love. You can tell from the gorgeous photos below, that Angela OWNED this session!
“I’m still strong, I’m still athletic, and I can still hit the sh*t out of a ball, even if my pants are a little bigger now.My worth isn’t based on my size, I have achieved and overcome so much more.”
See, we told you she was a badass.
