BODY LOVE FEATURE: Ms. M., 40

I’m 40 and a single mom and if anything it made me want to do it more. You can be sexy, confident and beautiful.

I’ve struggled with self-love since high school. Then when I became a mom and my body changed and was like whoa!! I was at the heaviest I’ve ever been 5 years ago. At that time I was going through a divorce. I’ve been told that I was ‘at’ someone’s weigh limit while dating. It’s not till now at 40 where I’m the most comfortable I’ve ever been. 

Before the shoot I’d say I was pretty confident. It was work to get there. A year ago exactly before this shoot I did a boudoir with someone else. I literally hated it. Most of my pics I felt like I looked like a cow. I was greatly disappointed. So that prompted me to lose weight and make other changes in my life. So when the day of the shoot came I was ready.  

Trish instantly made me feel relaxed. I mean I was completely nude!! This was the experience wanted and dreamed of. 

Advice to future BLP Participants:

Ladies if this is something youve thought about but something is bothering you, just do it!  The empowerment, sexiness and overall boost of confidence it gives you is amazing!!! You DO NOT need to be a certain size to do this. It’s about being comfortable in your own skin. Embracing your own beauty. No matter your age, size or race. If your a mom, flaunt that shit!!!
