~ Heather ~
These are her words:
“Anyone who knows me knows that I have struggled my whole life with my weight and hormones.
In 2017 after 2 years of hell weighing 128.8kg and a size 26, the medications were no longer working, I was gaining weight and nothing could stop it, I was becoming someone I didn’t like so on the recommendation of my gynecologist i had my stomach sleeved in hopes that it would swing my hormones around.
Fast forward to today and I’m 75kg a size 12 and I don’t see the difference between the two me’s, I know I’ve lost weight but I just don’t see it when I look in the mirror which is why I decided to have a portrait session with Lea to try and get me past my body dysmorphia.
Unlike normal people who are so excited about a glamour session and being made up I was anxious and excited and feeling ridiculous for doing it all at once.
It’s been a long time since I have been in front of the camera and I am so much more comfortable behind the lens these days.
But let’s face it who could not have fun when hanging out with lea, she is a ball of positive energy and just makes you have no choice but to feel good about your self and your body, I had so much fun from start to finish.
I loved my makeover and lea’s imagination has made for some amazing images and I still can’t believe that it’s me in them.
Thank god I will need updated headshots next year so we can do this again – Heather xx✨
Oh heather, you have always been beautiful, and am so glad you finally see you how everyone sees you.
To see your wall of self-consciousness drop and this incredibly feminine beauty appear in front of my lens was mindblowing to witness.
Thank you for trusting me.
