“I have this belief that if you shed your clothes you shed your inhibitions, and the true you really comes to the surface. So that’s really what I’ve dedicated myself to, every woman has a story, I just take a picture of it.” (2:31)
“As much as I am helping other women and kicking their butts, they are also helping heal me and kick my butt into, you know, living the most full life I can live.” (4:09)
“Really being in tune with what makes you happy, what you want in life, what you will tolerate and boundaries, and when you stand up for those things, the love for yourself grows exponentially. And you become powerful enough to then go after what you want to do in your life.” (13:51)
“It is still a process, and I think that it is very difficult for women to be honest with each other about those processes that we are going through throughout life, and I would love to see more of that honesty and connection.” (20:23)
“I also try to stand in the moment and say I need to deal with this now, I need to feel the pain and the agony and the sadness because if I don’t it will come back to get me at some point. And I am not ready to sacrifice any more time of my life for that.” (27:59)
