PHOTOSHOOTS FOR SELF ESTEEM. Helping Survivors break the cycle of self doubt and reclaim the way they see themselves.

by Anna MissingLink in London, England, United Kingdom

New stretch target

Extra money would help may the day more of an experience of self care for the people involved, we would be able to give them copies of the photographs and chose one to have put on a canvas, as well as the digital files.  We would be able to offer a stylist, some light refreshments and a second photographer to provide a different angle.

And quite simply we would be able to provide this service, free of cost to more Survivors.


PHOTOSHOOTS FOR SELF ESTEEM

How you see yourself changes everything.

When you walk tall, feel confident and really shine that your are confident in your own skin, doors open for you. But this is not always easy to achieve, especially when your body has not always felt safe.

I would like to help break the cycle of self doubt and help people have the confidence to believe in themselves and their value.  Offering photoshoots to Survivors who want to take that step towards healing their own body image will provide something they can look at on a bad day and something which the mirror does not. 

The irony is that the people who need to reclaim their confidence the most, survivors of abuse, are often the least able to afford it.

I am trying to raise money to be able to provide shoots to Survivors who may feel this could be a really liberating thing for them for free, and heavily subsidised for those who can and want to give a little.

The nature of these shoots is going to mean different things for different people.  I want to help people be able to see how powerful their unique beauty is.  

" I really don't know what to say.  I have gone through the photos and I love them so much. Your work is worth so much more than you asked.  I am feeling very emotional as I type this. I never thought I would look so beautiful" - CG

I specialise in helping women reclaim their body image.  They be from their own personal history in these #MeToo times.  It may be as they move into menopause, it may be as they start on their journey to motherhood.  

This Crowdfunder has the potential to be match-funded. If I can raise £500 from more than 30 people then I will have this matched.

Will you help me get this project captured?
