I could repeat myself and tell you how I feel about the bopo community, maybe tell you how much you should probably start loving yourself.
But honestly, I am so tired of repeating myself saying the same thing in different way.
It’s true, one day I hope you learn how to love yourself but let’s get real for a min.
My images and following me won’t help you love yourself. Why? Because it’s a lie.
My photography is planned. There’s 2 hrs of planning, there’s professionals who do hair and make up, there’s years of perfecting posing for different body types. I talk through on how to do each pose.
Then, THEN! I take hours on the computer, going through each photo over and over only keeping the best of the best.
Once I’ve filtered through images, I spend another couples hours editing and retouching until it’s perfect enough.
Ya, my photos won’t help you, a stranger, looking through this feed. You won’t feel good about yourself bc you don’t see how much work is put into it.
But the thing is, we collectively work hard for one moment. For that micro second of a moment for you to believe “ah, I am enough”.
Maybe my photos aren’t authentic, but my truth and purpose is.
