BY CHRISTY TYLER PHOTOGRAPHY
I, like many other women, have struggled with my self-image and battled an all-consuming eating disorder in my early 20's. After coming through that incredibly dark time in my life, I knew I wanted to help others avoid the same fate. I wanted to make a difference. It wasn't until years later when I became a photographer that I realized exactly how I could go about doing so.
Through these sessions I encourage women to embrace their one of a kind beauty. I give them permission to feel amazing about themselves as we laugh, talk, and work our way through their session. When they see the images from our time together, women finally allow themselves to acknowledge and celebrate their inner strength and unique beauty.
And even more importantly, long after the session is over and they've put the photos away - I help women to recognize that:
...it is okay to feel BEAUTIFUL inside and out... to OWN that feeling... and to carry that confidence with them through life.
