The first person I’m starting this project off with, is me. I’m 18, from Connecticut. I live for photography, arts, plants and music. But I feel my purpose in life is to help others find beauty.
Not just their physical beauty- but inner as well. I started this project based off of some messages I received. A few girls said they wanted to model for me, but they felt too ugly- which to me, seemed ridiculous because these girls were absolutely stunning. But sometimes it takes me a second to realize, they may not see it. And that’s where I come in.
This project isn’t some miracle fix, promising that I’m going to cure you from ever feeling bad about yourself. No. but I’m here to help you see yourself in a different light. They way I may see you, or others, and how you stand out. I’ll take photos and showcase things you may not have even thought about as being beautiful.
I am also having interviews with these lovely people who volunteer to be a part of my project. Because this project isn’t solely about outer beauty. It’s about people as wholes, how their personality reflects on to the world. I want to know about them, what their passions are, how they like to live their lives, their greatest struggles or successes. I want to show the better parts of them to the world and serve as a reminder to themselves.
There was a long time I felt awful about myself. Mentally and physically I hated my own being and I hated who I had become. I had the realization that it wasn’t the way to live and set out to change it. So here I am. Physically, working towards my weight loss journey to keep my body healthy and happy. Mentally, it’s a bit harder. But keeping up my self love and admiring every roll of my stomach and wrinkle on my face has helped me tremendously. And I’m hoping his project can help others too. Look at people at a different perspective and learn different types of beauty. It’s all there- we just need to learn to see it. ..

Find Project Beauty
I am looking for volunteers for a special project.
I’d like to create a series of photos showcasing all types of people. I’m looking for people of ANY body type, race, age, weight, gender, height, etc. I want a bunch of different looks.
The point of this project is to highlight beauty of all different types. Helping you find beauty in yourself and show it to others. Along with it I will be doing short little interviews as well, so I can add on to the photo with inner beauty. Beauty isn’t always physical either, and I want to highlight on that with adding quotes.
Some are often overlooked or think that they themselves aren’t beautiful and I want to prove to them and the world that they ARE. .
Im asking for people of all different types. I want you to show up in what makes you feel the most confident- makeup or no makeup, sweatpants or a dress, it doesn’t matter. Whatever makes you feel your best. .
Anyone is welcome to do this. You get pictures and featured in the project as well as my blog.
Please reach out to me if you are available for a photo shoot. Right now, I am booking shoots in SouthWest Connectict.
