“In the last year I pushed myself to reach new levels of self acceptance and love, part of which led me to Jessica Michael Photography.
Boudoir photography is often marketed as a gift for a significant other – but it is truly one of the most empowering things I’ve ever done for myself.
While I choose not to share everywhere, my personal Instagram has seen a few – and with that I’ve found a community of bold, supportive, strong women who can identify with the journey to a place of positivity I’ve been on. Others view this professional artwork as though I’m ‘too open’, that I don’t have standards, that I’m insecure and attention seeking. (For those of you who know me, feel free to find the humor in this as I have )
Your journey and my journey will not be the same . I respect women and how they feel confident- made up or barefaced, bikini or hijab. I will always be outspoken in support of people living their lives authentically.
I’m so proud to wear this shirt in the hopes that others will find confidence in seeing themselves through a different lens. You can be feminine, and still strong and powerful. You can be body positive, and still be elegant. You can support people who do things differently than you without it being a compromise to your own success.
Be kind, and be yourself.”
