So if you are a bigger girl and wear shorts in public this is who you really are according to the stares I'm getting today. Opaque stockings underneath do not help buffer the gates to hell either.

Its been 8 years since I've worn shorts out and today has reminded my why. I actually thought for a moment "I shouldn't do this if it offends people" but why? Why are bigger girls not allowed to wear singlets and shorts like everyone else without being made to feel like we are soliciting sex or "not dressing for our body type", why do you get to look me up and down with a snarly face and then I feel bad that I've offended you? I actually felt guilty. . . . . . Well sorry, its 2017 and I shouldn't have to feel guilty because my bigger thighs make you uncomfortable. I've made it my life's work to empower women and make them understand that they are good enough because people like you make them think otherwise.
I never rant on social media but I'm livid . . . To all my beautiful women I've photographed who've told me I've changed the way you look at yourself, you in fact have changed the way I look at myself, thankyou . .
And the shorts are fucking staying ;)

Decided to re edit this lovely headshot from last year 😊 #portraiture #beautyphotography #glamourphotography #glamourshots #headshot #headshots

Shooting a fellow photographer is a rewarding experience as they often don't get their photos done and are missing from their friends and loved ones histories! #beautyphotography #glamourphotography #portraiture #glamourshots #headshot #headshots

Another of my favourite portraits from 2015, Lady Rosalie author of the "Chronicles of Caleath" (8 book epic sci fi fantasy series) #beautyphotography #glamourphotography #portraiture #glamourshots #headshot #headshots #author #authors #scifi
