For me, what makes us beautiful are our differences. One thing that I want to share with the world is that there is not one kind of beauty. I want to capture so many different women and share their portraits to show the beauty in diversity. We all deserve to feel beautiful, because we all are beautiful. I know that for some women and girls, seeing images of others that look like them helps them to see themselves more clearly. If I can have any part in that process, that is a gift to me.
