This powerful self portrait session carries so much power and beauty! These images are raw and honest and vulnerable. Once you see the art Eva created and the story behind the photos, you’re going to be inspired to pull out your camera and tripod (or a friend) and create magic yourself.
Even now as you sit on your computer or scroll on your phone, take a second to honor and thank your body. Not because of perfection, but because of presence. Take a deep breath. Remember that you are worthy and your body is worthy no matter what. Listen to what Eva has to say and ask yourself, “what does this mean to me?”
Then go out and let this Feature Session fuel you to to capture your body as is.
Don’t wait for weight loss. Don’t wish you would have done it when you were younger. Don’t hide.
“Do you hide your body, lady? Are you ashamed? I know the feeling, but you shouldn’t. I have done a shoot for myself every 10 years, since I was 22 – even though I constantly criticized my body as a young adult. But my photographer’s heart also knew I will love to have this documentation many years from now. So it was time again – and I can see my body changing. But this body has grown and nurtured my children, it has been healthy ever since and I am nothing but celebrating my body at the age of 42. I am healthy, I am alive. I am loved. I don’t mind my scars and flaws, and neither should YOU or ANY woman. I have gained weight and some grey hair for sure through Corona and still I did the shoot. Because that’s who I am today. Let’s look at our bodies. Let’s be amazed by them and let’s keep on working towards a world, where body images can be healthy again. Let’s not hide. Let’s teach our children, that every body is unique and not supposed to look like the one next to it or the perfect pin-up. Unique is beautiful. Will you remember your body?” -Eva Walther
