I cried (and it wasn't pretty!)

“It’s interesting, sometimes you watch a movie that moves you so right into your core. It bring tears to your eyes and evokes emotions to a beautiful degree.
Usually, the tears are just running silently, as you are watching and emphasizing with the moments you see on the screen.
Well, tonight I watched Coco. A Pixar movie, that if you haven’t seen it yet, I highly encourage you to do so…..and I cried.
Not the pretty kind where one perfect tear, silently falls down and caresses the cheek.
Nope, really not like that!
Let’s face it. I ugly-cried. Snot-running, puffy, red eyes, out loud, hysterically, passionately, sorrowfully.
It wasn’t pretty. You can ask my husband.”

My Steps to Self-Love (Let's try and make this happen shall we?)

“So why am I sharing all of this?
Well, I know I am a business woman, but first and foremost I am a human being. I need accountability in my life and I also feel like it is important to show the good and the bad sides of myself.

Elizabeth's Discovery (The Nurse with the Big Heart!)

"It was so difficult not to become inspired by her. At 24 she has a drive and an ambition that is rare. She knows what she wants to do and exactly how she wants to do it. In order for her to lead the life she wants, she works extra hard so she can travel and enjoy the good things in life. She knows that if you want fun you have to work for it. I got so inspired that I have in fact ended up trying to achieve the same mindset."

I get SO nervous!

"One of my amazing privileges is to show women the beauty that I see in them. It is such an emotional and enormous task to have because what if, the images I show them, aren’t to their liking? What if they are going to look at my work, my vision, and turn their nose? Or even worse, what if they are going to look at themselves through my eyes and deem themselves unworthy, ugly and old?

Priceless Possessions

"Two of my most prized possessions that I brought with me from Denmark, is two framed images. They are not very big but they are both fairly old. Both are framed in a simple black frame.

How modelling benefitted my photography

"Working with plus size modeling gave me an understanding of what outfits and styles looks nice on me and soon I gained even more self-confidence. But working in an industry that is primarily focused on the outside appearance makes it difficult to feel appreciated for who you are as a person and for what you can do. Everything is about appearance and while it did help me quite a bit on my journey to self-acceptance and even love it was only me who could take me the rest of the way."
