Allison | THIS IS ME

Tell me your story!

“I did a boudoir shoot a few years ago and hated the pics. Fast forward a few years: my dad passed away and I gained a bunch of weight. I recently lost all of it plus some and would like to do this as a gift to myself.”

What do you remember learning about beauty from a young age?

“As a plus-size girl, you always hear about skinny models and needing to be thin and that was never me. I have a friend that is a photographer up north that does the shoots and her women are all different shapes and sizes and they look amazing.”

What’s your favorite thing about your personality?

“My ability to make others laugh.”

Is there any advice you would like to share with others who struggle to see their own beauty?

“As I get older, I have thrown society’s idea of what is beautiful out the window and I am slowly learning to just love myself.”

Allison, it makes me so happy to know you’re creating your own definition of beauty for yourself and learning to love who you are. In the short time that I have come to know you, I can tell you that you’re beautiful inside and out and have a caring heart for others. I hope this boudoir shoot was everything you dreamed it would be. Thank you for being a part of the This is Me Series!
