I am beyond grateful to have reconnected with a high school classmate of mine, Megan Ramminger of Megan Ramminger Photography who will be the warrior behind the camera helping us take this project to the next level!
The photoshoots will be at Megan's main photography location (address above)
What Are We Doing?
We will be holding individual photo shoots and interviews for brave new warriors interested in joining the fight to #ReclaimBeauty. We will also be working out some other details to have some snacks and maybe entertainment for people who want to hang out for a bit and meet other warriors! Stay tuned, more details will unfold soon!
Each person interested in attending will wear all black clothing and if they are comfortable, sports bras/crops tops/bandeauxs and/or spandex/briefs/shorts (essentially anything goes and the less clothing the better as long as your genitalia is covered and you feel comfortable). Otherwise, anything you are comfortable wearing will be great as long as you are in all black! Also, some have asked about make-up. Ideally, it will be little or no-make-up but again, I want people to feel comfortable so do what feels good for you!
Individual sessions will be approxmately 10-15 minutes long with you having the time to interact 1-on-1 with Megan in a private area! She will make you feel completely at ease and comfortable as you take the courageous step into the light as a warrior working to #ReclaimBeauty!
In addition to the 10-15 minute session, I (Kyira) will meet with each of you to capture a bit of what that experience was like for you. This will be about 10-15 minutes and will include some recording if you are comfortable. For some, greater reflection comes over time so I always welcome follow up submissions and writing but am excited about the opportunity to engage with you and hear more about why this project speaks to you, how beauty standards have impacted you in your life, and how you can empower people to join us as we #ReclaimBeauty!
Note: All participants must sign a release allowing us to use your photos and quotes for the purposes of the project. However, if there are special circumstances or stiulations, we are HAPPY to work with you!
