I am a very body-positive photographer. So, the moment Tiana told me she wanted to do a semi-nude shoot I was all for it! It's important to love every aspect, every curve and every nook of the human body. It's such a sacred, special vessel we all have and this shoot was a reminder of that, spent with such a special and bold soul who was up for anything!
I got to spend a few weeks this summer working and taking pictures of Chris Littlefield - a fellow #TarHeel - and his Bee Farm on Block Island, Rhode Island. After seeing the hard work and gorgeous process of harvesting honey, I think it's so funny that so many of us are afraid of bees! They are truly magical insects. Enjoy this gallery of the Littlefield Bee Farm.
I can’t believe I made it. After 6 long years of being in and out of school, I finally graduated. So, please excuse the wild website while I take time off to figure out the rest of my life. :) It feels great to say I finally have a diploma. Rest of my life… here I come! Thanks Mom & Dad.
Here is just a little post about body positivity for the day. There is this tiny little tradition on UNC's campus called the campus streak. Hundreds of students get together to run across the campus totally nude. I don't know when the tradition started, but I knew that as someone who pushes people to be comfortable in the skin they are in, I wanted to be a part of it. Here is a piece I wrote describing my experience as a nudist.
If you know me well, or read my blog posts, you also know that I'm a huge advocate for body love and food acceptance. I don't think you should ever feel guilt or shame about what you eat. After observing the French way of approaching food, I became intrigued. It seems as American women, we are all obsessed with dieting in a way the French women simply are not. So, I read the book "Why French Women Don't Get Fat" and here is my post sharing what I learned. Enjoy!
Naturally, I am always being inspired by Humans of New York's Brandon Stanton. So, I decided to do my own take on it. Especially given that I have a particularly unique insight into the au pair world of Paris, I decided to write a little non-fiction piece on what these au pairs have learned and experienced during their time in the land of cheese.
