The lovely Carrie posted this to Facebook shortly after our shoot and I got her permission to share it with you all. I am honored to have gotten the chance to work with her. She is an inspiring, courageous and absolutely stunning woman. Here’s what she had to say about her experience:
“Over the last year, I’ve learned that if you can’t love yourself at any weight, you’ll never love yourself, no matter your weight. I currently weigh 70 lbs less than I did 6 years ago, but the last year has been the most major transformation I’ve ever experienced – and it was mostly mental. Shedding physical weight won’t ever lighten the emotional burden of self loathing. You have to start with loving yourself, or the rest of it won’t ever matter. Kudos to all of you who are on your journey towards health and well-being, but remember that the number on the scale isn’t everything. Give yourself a big hug and start celebrating who you are right this very moment.
In celebration of my journey, I recently did a photoshoot with Dana Kae, a seriously phenomenal human being whose character and compassion are utterly awe-inspiring. Check out her amazing work. And then book your own shoot.”
