I’ve been raving on about my epic photo shoot for days now — well here it is! This is the first time I had a taste for being in the spotlight, and I must admit I had an incredibly fun time. This is a direct result of my lovely photographers Julia Ehrnstrom of Jay Photographics and Emily Valentine. There wasn’t a single moment when they made me feel awkward or uncomfortable — in fact, they made me feel like the prettiest girl in the world. Thank you to both of you for being so wonderful and easy going!

Looking back at the shoots I’ve done thus far for the Positively Plus section of Big&Beautiful&Bold — the charismatic Brittany and adorable Christina, young women who I love and admire and who never cease to amaze me with their radiating spunk, I realize that my hope for this blog is to inspire confidence in others — to get heavier gals to love their pudge. And if just one curvy gal looks upon this site, at the photos of gorgeous and poised plus-size ladies, and feels a bout of realization that being chunky is beautiful, I will be beyond happy. It’s taken me a long time to reach a point of confidence — a few years ago if anyone had told me I’d be standing up in front of a camera in a bikini I would have thought said person belonged in a mental institution. But here I am, showing off my chunky bits in a fatkini for all of cyberspace to see. And I would do it again in a heartbeat, because guess what, being fat, chunky, voluptuous, or any adjective you want to use to describe those jiggly bits, is stunning. I for one love my fat, and wouldn’t change it for the world!
