Creator Month: Photographer Jaime Patterson

“Body and fat positivity is at the forefront of my business. I approach each session and client through that view point and see all bodies as valuable and worthy of great photos. This stems from my personal experience being a fat cis Black woman who rarely sees bodies like mine in photos showing people in love, with their families, or embracing their bodies.” ยป Jaime Patterson

Today’s interview is with @hiddenexposurephotography.

Here’s how she describes herself:

Jaime is a body-positive, fat positive, inclusive lifestyle, family, boudoir, wedding, and portrait photographer based out of Richmond, VA. Jaimeโ€™s work centers fat and other marginalized bodies as a way of normalizing them in the field of photography. There is a lack of fat, queer, and other marginalized bodies being shown, in love, with their families, in their day to day, and confident in their bodies.
