“Are you tired of me yet? Too bad, cuz I’m still going.
I remember the age when I got excited about purchasing my first razor. I was about 10, and every woman I knew had smooth legs. All of the ladies in the skintimate commercials had shiny, smooth legs...I wanted it. I was told from such a young age that I needed and WANTED to shave my legs and armpits. I never knew it was a choice I was making to take part in a long living trend started by the razor companies in the first place back in May 1915. Obviously, women and men have been removing hair since ancient Egypt, but these last 100 years the growth of women taking part in this trend is astounding.
So, what are these photos about? In each of these I feel extremely vulnerable. I wanted to do a shoot that made me feel sexy and beautiful, and that’s exactly what Maddie did! I had a blast during our shoot experience 💞 yet, at times I find myself hiding certain parts of myself from the world still. I’ll post these photos here on my social media, but later choose to wear pants and a long sleeve to cover up what I think society deems as disgusting. It’s hard, and I feel like a hypocrite too. I’ll say that it is definitely a journey. There is no right way to love yourself, but I’m appreciating my body for the life it has given me thus far #freethepits
