I’ve been thinking a lot of about the types of people that are always in the spotlight and what they look like.. and how they look different than the majority of women in America. I don’t want to start a debate or promote obesity, but I DO want girls to know that if you’re a size 12 – you’re beautiful. Oh, you’re a size 16? You’re beautiful too. And you deserve for someone to take your photo and show you just how beautiful you are. That’s where Plus You comes in, a new photo project that I’m starting with Melanie Paul. We’ve just started this journey but check out our little mission statement just to see what we have to say and then check out a few images from out first photo shoot:
Founded by Vida Carson and Melanie Paul, PlusYou aims to serve as a foundation for girls who do not “fit the mold” according to the standards of beauty in today’s youth. Here at PlusYou, we hold the firm belief that beauty comes in all shapes and so why does modeling have height and weight restrictions? That’s where the YOU in PlusYou comes in. So, short and voluptuous women, we are looking for you! If you are sexy, fun, confident, and sassy and are interested in helping us redefine beauty, we want you on our team!
