Here's a shoot fueled by body positivity! This gorgeous woman fully understands the meanng of self-love and even told her photographer, Alexis Schwallier Photography, to let the curves, stretch marks, and any other so called "flaws" show in the photos. They are all apart of us and are just as beautiful as the rest of us. But that's even more beautiful is a confident woman who is brave enough to put herself out there and love herself exactly as she is.
From the Photographer | Like all of my boudoir sessions or as I like to call them self-love sessions, I celebrate the woman in front of my camera. Kelsey and I collaborated on the vision and feeling of her session and captured her confidence and personality in a casual, at home session. I am primarily a wedding photographer and have a background in fine art photography that fuels my vision when it comes to boudoir. For this session, Kelsey and I wanted dark, witchy, strong, and empowered vibes while celebrating the new makeup line launched by Rihanna. Kelsey did her own makeup and together we styled her lingerie pieces. She also stated that she wanted her curves, rolls, and stretch marks to be seen. This celebration of black girl magic and body positivity has been one of my favorite self-love sessions to date, and I hope it encourages all women to find their inner beauty.
