The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness (2013)
Hi dear! - hope this finds you well.
It’s funny for me to look at this photo (myself and two very good friends) and think back to just a few years ago when my self-esteem and body image was probably at the lowest point in my life. It’s really only very recently that I’ve accepted my body and it’s limits, and I’m so happy I have because I’d miss moments like this photo.
The three of us pretty much spent the afternoon nude, baking sugar cookies and talking about art, porn, sexuality and life experiences in general. It was lovely and, unfortunately, the day ended much too soon. No worries though. We do have plans to spend more afternoons like this soon.
My evolving acceptance has also helped me to branch out with regard to working with other people. Just yesterday I modeled for a local photographer (which up until now I’ve only shot self-portraits) and another female model, both of whom I’d never met before. It was a wonderful experience and I had a lot of fun! Now I’m really looking forward to other opportunities modeling and collaborating.
'Nuff said :)
Anyway, I hope you have a lovely day.
Hugs! - Grae :)

Grae i’m so thrilled. As if your self portraits aren’t amazing enough - knowing that you are now letting others take photos of you makes me so happy. I bet you’re a lovely person to work with. There is a wonderful story in this photo somewhere - i can just barely see the edges forming.
