photograph by Cheryl Fair, Corset by Ethereal Threads, model Deena Lynn
I had a shoot with Deena while I was in Albany, NY recently. This photo from the shoot is now on the Ethereal Threads site. It was an unseasonably hot day, but we had a good time anyway. More photos from the shoot can be seen on my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/CherylFairPhotography
sorry for not doing stuff today like i wanted but there was more books to arrange and clothes to go through ad blah de blah. anyways. here’s a list of the threads i have saved as of now. shoot me a message if there’s anything i missed or anything someone wants dropped.
I am currently working on a photography project named “Self Image.” Whether you are a size 2 or 22, there is beauty in all of us. So many times, I read comments on petite models of “you need to eat a cheeseburger” or on the average or commonly named plus sized models “good for her, that she is confident enough to wear that” etc. It’s all judgemental.
I for one have NEVER been a size 2. I fit into the average or “plus size” category. Am I happy about it? Most of the time..well not happy…but I’m “OK” with it. I am currently wanting to do something about that but not because society thinks I’m too big but because I need to be happy with myself. Your health and happiness should be top priorities.
The most recent outburst of “size” is from a well known clothing designer..well, I wouldn’t call him a designer but I am sure you know who I am referring to. I wish that more designers would carry larger sizes. It is very hard to keep the positive outlook on yourself if you are stuck wearing the brands made specifically for “plus size” women/men. I know. Some of you are going to say, “Well, if you want to wear the other brands, you are going to have to lose some weight. There is your motivation.” It’s not that easy and 9 times out of 10, it just pushes the person in the opposite direction.
Please stay tuned for the completion of this project.
