The thing I love about Photography is: like a great wine, the images only get more valuable as Time goes by.
I love being able to capture people's "Fabulous" because, in the moment, they feel self-confident and beautiful.
But what is even better than that is: years later, they can STILL look at their MISHAFOTOS images and feel good about them-self.
Many women suffer with low self esteem because they don't fit into the Corporate Model Form of what women 'should' be.
I, too, have suffered with esteem issues.
When I was a kid, everyone called me FAT. It had such a negative impact on me and my self worth. I remember always trying to hide my tummy with crossed arms and a slumped posture, and I remember feeling so worthless. It started around the age of 6!
When I look back on old photos, I wasn't fat at all. I was healthy.
I realize that I was a victim of other's expectations and control.
My best childhood friend, Amanda Ellis, recently reminded me that, when I was 12, I told her that my DREAM in LIFE was to "Dress people up so that they feel good and then take photos of them".
So I guess, I am living my childhood dream! Thanks to YOU!
MISHAFOTOS #1 goal is to help people see their inner beauty.
So.. like... yah. I just had to share that.
