Bravo to the Beautiful As I Am Campaign

I am in love with this photographer.  I was just thinking the other day, that the Dove campaign needed a significantly fluffier girl to represent in their ads.  As well as a tattooed lady, punk rocker girl, and other real women represented, not just the plus size(by the industries standard), still under sized toned models.  That they needed a picture in the same vein, but with more diverse shades of beautiful! Then I stumble across these phenomenal photos, and the photographer's photo campaign, Beautiful As I Am.  Her photographs are real women, they are like us, everyday ladies that love ourselves with our cottage cheese, stretch marks, rolls, tattoos, gauged ears, braids, and many other "imperfections".  They are beautiful. Their imperfections to society are beautiful to me.  I wish these photos had been around when I was raising my first teenage daughter, as she struggled with self image and self esteem, like most teenage girls do. I am going to share a couple of her photos with you. Well done May Faith Photography!

Here is the link to check out the rest of the photos in her campaign Beautiful As I Am Campaign.


  1. Thanks for sharing this. I agree that it's a shame that we aren't all portrayed as beautiful just the way we are.

  2. My pleasure! Agreed! Maybe one day we will live in a world without fear, discrimination, hatred, and stereotyping! Until can hope!
