When I was on my road trip last week, I had a photo shoot. Not something I ever had thought of doing in the past. I am overweight. Kinda not happy with my looks most days. Uncomfortable seeing me in a photo.
But God told me otherwise. He has been impressing on me lately to "Stand in my Beauty". As a wife, a friend, a sister, a daughter (harder than you would think), and as a business woman.
I hired a friend who is a photographer and away we went. We did some more formal head shot poses for work and then had fun.
I can't say that I love them all. I do think though that I look pretty in some of them.
I can't wait to look back a year from now and see the changes in me.
One of my favorites
This one was inspired by a painting that I own called "Standing in her beauty"
Look ma! No spanx!!! That was hard to do. It is all me. Not hiding anything.
And then she does scrinchy nose.
I had red ants crawling on me here. Ouch.
So there they are. There are over a hundred more! But you get these ones.
Yup. That is me.
15 lbs heavier than when I stopped the diet.
On the road to being mentally and physically healthier this year.
Leaving the past behind and standing in today.
Thank you Ruth.
Worth every penny.
