About a year ago, I worked with a photographer who told me that I’d always need to angle my body just a little bit because I had wide hips. “You look much bigger when you’re standing facing the camera. Just turn even the slightest bit to the side and you’ll look smaller.”
For awhile, I was very aware of how I was positioned in each photo. I immediately deleted any photo that made my hips look “wider”... simply because I let one person get in my head. •
This person wasn’t trying to be crude or degrading at all. I believe they had good intentions. But the question is, why did I have to look smaller? Why did the width of my hips matter? They’re my hips. That’s it. I GOT WIDE CUTE HIPS.
And so here I am, reminding you that no matter what you’ve heard, you’re beautiful. No matter how you’re sitting, standing, or dressing, you’re beautiful. No matter your weight, scars, or differences... people’s opinions are just opinions. You are beautiful ❤️
