Excerpt: True story: While I was on location taking pictures for this post, there was a real deal, LIVE, swimsuit photo shoot taking place with professional swimsuit models! The young women were quite small in size. May I even say, tiny? I began to feel my old negative feelings resurging: shame and inadequacy. Just who did I think I was? Why was I taking pictures? What will people think of me for wearing this swimsuit? Almost just in time, the most amazing thing occurred: One of the models called out to me, and she said: “I just have to say, you look amazing.” Another then said: “I just love your suit, where is it from?” As a result of those kind words, my insecurities melted away. I remembered that we are indeed, all beautiful. Yes, women are beautiful in every shape and size. And even more remarkably, I realized the power that women have to inspire, and encourage another.
