What I find so inspiring about Rachel is how determined she is. As a photographer, it's my job to help clients feel confident and look beautiful... but Rachel pretty much did my job for me! About a month before our session, she started a healthy eating/detox challenge. For 28 consecutive days, she eliminated gluten, soy, dairy, alcohol, sugar and processed foods from her diet, and in doing so, built a more mindful relationship with food. She lost 13 pounds and 4% of her body fat!
This is going to sound really weird, but in all honesty, I don't care what clients look like on the outside. They can be skinny, fat, tall, short, or have three eyes and green skin. None of that matters. What matters to me is how they FEEL on the inside. When someone feels confident, beautiful, stunning, and fierce, that spirit shines through and control all aspects of their person, from posture to expression. That's why I'm so proud of Rachel for taking on this healthy eating challenge. I'm a huge proponent of body positivity and inner self confidence, and I'm so glad Rachel did something to make her feel extra great about herself!
