Behind The Scenes: My Photo Shoot

Posted on: August 9, 2013

For the last month I have been planning a photo shoot. I have been going through photos, makeup looks, and styles. I wanted my shoot to be couture, edgy, and unique. I always see a certain type of revealing and sometimes cookie-cutter style that some people use . I wanted to have a shoot and stand out.

I think we may have done it this time.

Just getting to the shoot proved to be hectic. Madinah and I ended up making it on set an hour and a half late. We didn’t get to do the second look but we got some awesome shots.

Do you like my Gaga nail ring? The look I was going for was high-fashion, curvy style.

I am my own worst critic. There’s many things that I loved that I stopped doing because I “wasn’t good enough”. Because what I looked like was “disgusting”. The things I wrote about would “disgrace” my family, my religion, myself. For five years, I didn’t do anything. And, resented the fact that I wasn’t living in my purpose. I was floating along life, mimicking what I thought people like me did. They didn’t model. They didn’t cuss. They made their husbands happy. They stayed out of the way. But, most of them were doormats. I chose to put it all out there. On the internets and become myself 😂🤣 There will always be critics. People who don’t read nothin you say or have no idea what you stand for but will look at your body and judge you based on that and that alone. The person in the next slide (swipe over) keeps referring to my body as “that” which means they don’t see my fat glory as human. He/she calls me disgusting. Calls me a disgrace. But, their profile pic says “Inspiration”. My body is my temple. I am a queen. I appreciate what my body does for me despite my size. Period! 👏🏾 And, a reminder for you if you are struggling with body hate—from yourself or others or society—your body is a grand temple. Adorn it. Hug it. Nourish it. In what ways do you overly criticized your self, your body? What advice would you give someone who is critical of their self? Let’s chat.
