to go for so long feeling incredibly low about yourself and having no confidence in how you look and present yourself absolutely SUCKS. i put off modelling for a while this year because of how bad i felt about myself and because of how many doubts i kept having. i kind of fell into a cave of constant dark thoughts that kept spiralling out or control and it was incredibly hard to get myself out of that cave. throwing myself back into a shoot this weekend was extremely nerve wracking and i was SO nervous about how the photos would turn out but to get these back and feel OVERJOYED with them is honestly the best feeling ever. thank you so much to @dmedway for capturing these gorgeous photos — i guess what i’ve learnt from this is that even if you have doubts and horrible insecurities eating away at you, sometimes throwing yourself back into the deep end is one of the best things you could ever do... what have you got to lose!? 🧡

I changed my name again to reflect the path I want to follow--I'll definitely be doing photography for the rest of my life. I quit my full time job because it wasn't fulfilling me, so I'm starting to take steps to make freelancing my full time shindig. I've been trying a lot of new things this past year--modeling, even acted in a commercial, coloring hair for more people, and working on film sets galore. I'm excited for what is to come, but I'm not gonna lie I'm also terrified haha! Thus, I'm immensely grateful to all my friends and mentors who take time to educate me about photography and life, who inspire and support me to continue going along this creative path.
I've been super shy about posting my work, so I'd love your support as I start sharing images and stories over the next couple weeks 💖
