Major life changes can cause us to lose sight of who we are: our own needs and priorities, our values and goals, even our sense of self or self-worth. When you feel at sea, it can be hard to know what makes you, you.
Ms. R was in the midst of one such transition when we met to photograph her in my garden at high summer. Every angle and curve we captured was a reminder: This is me. This is my body. This is the home in which I live.
This kind of vulnerability takes bravery and guts for most of us, and I’m so honored that Ms. R chose me and trusted me to capture and represent her precious, beautiful body.
