I grew up in a violent home. I was always different, always stood out everywhere i went, and ALWAYS made to feel like I wasn’t enough. For a long time I’ve admired the women online (for example: Suicide Girls), since I was a teenager, but up until a few years ago did I stop believing that I wasn’t enough. My inner goddess has awoken in me and is in the driver’s seat. If anything I am TOO much. At least for the mundane people who speak with venom. I love myself more than anything. I come first. Through my journey of self love and inner growth, I am finally following my dreams and doing what I thought I’d never be able to: MODELING.
As for this photoshoot, it is inspired by my Native American heritage and truly expressing through photographs the true essence of my soul. I am a daughter of the moon and I spend all my free time in nature. I had a lot of fun doing this shoot, and hey! Nothing really says nature like nudity right? So I welcome you to have a glance at who I really am. These photographs perfectly capture who I am as a human being. I am beautiful just the way I am. I wouldn’t change a damn thing.
