To Simply Feel Beautiful

... bare shoulders, curves, lace, and swept up hair. I got a hold of her and the feminine touches slid out of my fingers and into my styling. Almost magical.

And for this Friday.. I leave you with this excerpt from Marianne Williamson's A Return to Love:

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? [...] We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

I believe that is what God has asked me to do with my photography. To be a piece of that liberation... the beauty and love I see in those that step in front of my camera. The permission to drop those fears and simply feel beautiful.

Happy Friday!
