Kathy and I went to high school together and were close friends. We both went our separate ways for a few years (as you do after high school), but remained in contact. I was lucky enough to see her get married to her soulmate a year prior to this shoot. I hope that man realizes how damn lucky he is! She's gorgeous inside and out - as well as one smart cookie! Studying biological science at Uni.... where she met the man that changed her life.

I put out a model call recently for boudoir, to my surprise, Kathy messaged expressing interest to doing a shoot with me. Of course, I said I'd be more than happy to.

I am under the firm belief that EVERY woman should have this experience at least once in their life. To see themselves as they truly are. To look at the photos afterwards and then look in the mirror and go.... "damn girl!".

That's what the true journey to self love is really about. Acceptance and love. Because we are all beautiful in our own way.
