” you were born to real not perfect ”

 I took my first self portrait in 2015 I was so scared to step in front of my camera I have had lots of head shots etc. and photograph so many beautiful women who step in front of my lens but every time I thought about doing it myself I just felt sick, froze up I was scared to see the body I had abused the body that got abused what if everything I had been thinking was true oh fuck how do I cope with that.

I hated my body I hated the way my life was it was full of shit ! so I stared to starve my self in my early twenties I was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa I was smoking 30 cigarettes a day drinking way to much alcohol  I was addicted to antidepressants unknown to my family what was fully going on I just walked around like a robot that everything was fine but inside I was screaming all this crap has left me with scars and mental health problems so learning to love and accept myself was lets say a big deal.

I beat the eating disorder I came off all the drugs I quit smoking I was fully on my journey to recovery.

I learnt to open my mind up, through finding who I was again using meditation my art and making decisions to change my life. I  feel emotions again. love myself, love others, embrace myself and life  laugh at myself I was starting to feel alive again! a feeling of waking up.

The scars will always be there and so will the mental health ( the biggest mistake was trying to ignore it ) but I’m learning to cope better and accept it some days are pure shit still but that’s ok its part of me.

if you want to possibly know more I am 33 34 in April ekkk how did that happen! I’m a proud mum to 2 boys Jack & Nathan I’m engaged to my soul mate he truly is amazing !!! I’ve been a vegetarian for roughly 20 years I am making the change to a plant based due to my gut,  my photography journey started when I was roughly 8ish taking photographs of Barbie & ken  I really must try and see if I have these photos anywhere. I read, draw, meditate, yoga LOVE  music I’m learning to play the guitar, I hate it people put the butter knife in the marmalade / jam jar ewwww its just wrong! ok I’m rambling now 😉 told you I rambled chat soon x

Lots of love
