“When you stop living your life based on what others think of you, real life begins. At that moment, you will finally see the door of self acceptance opened.” -Shannon Alder
It's finally here! I had the honors of flying to Canada to work with Addition Elle on this 'Be a Show Stopper campaign'. I've had numerous companies ask me to shoot in lingerie for them but have been shutting it down for the majority of my career. This time when Addition Elle approached me, I not only felt like it was the right time in my career but also loved the message they sent behind it. It was such a genius idea to glamorize three bloggers in the industry who were comfortable enough with their bodies to do a shoot in under garments because it really sends a powerful message. I felt Addition Elle accomplished what they set out to do. I personally believe bloggers are more relatable than celebrities and I feel these final shots send a message of self empowerment and self acceptance. That is something I have always tried get across to my viewers. I know a lot of you have been waiting for these so I hope you love the shots as much as I do. Thank you to the entire Addition Elle team and the great Maude Arsenault for these amazing shots. You can find beauty in anything. You don't need to be accepted by others, you need to accept yourself.
