It might feel awesome to be adored by the whole internet population for the pictures you share online, but are you still sure that it is the real you that they applaud online? Gladly, there are still people today who accept and love themselves for who they really are and they are not ashamed to flaunt their assets online.
Stephanie was nervous about having a sexy photoshoot with her fiance, but the results of the session left many netizens speechless.
Stephanie is considered as a plus size woman, but she found a man who would love her inner and outer beauty. Recently, she and her fiancé, Arryn, collaborated with their photographer friend, Bria Terry, of Wolf & Rose Photography to capture their romantic moments as a couple in a photoshoot. While the results have been really stunning and the netizens loved the Texas lady’s confidence, many still have odd comments to say about spreading her top bare photos just to be a patriot of bigger-sized people.
The photoshoot was uploaded by Bria on her Wolf & Rose Photography’s Facebook page. It was not shocking for the photos to go viral as they are indeed captivating, but it went quote overboard and caused such a stir on the internet.
Despite the divided opinion of the internet though on the couple’s photoshoot, Stephanie still felt thankful for some people who appreciated her and their shots. Through the shoot, she also came to realize her true beauty saying:
“This makes my heart so happy and gives me hope as a plus size woman that not all men care about what size you are.”
Furthermore, Stephanie felt honored to get the opportunity to send her body positivity message to others who share her size but struggle to handle the expectations pushed by social media. She hopes to break self-esteem issues by helping “bigger” people accept their appearance. She said:
“Over the years, I’ve come to accept that I am always going to be considered plus-size. I push myself out of my comfort zone by wearing clothes that I love but aren’t in society’s mold of what is acceptable for bigger women, like crop tops, tight shirts, shorter dresses and shorts. I walk around with my head high, smiling, and show no shame in myself.”
Stephanie said she’s never felt happier to see album. She also said that she “never felt more attractive” and hopes everyone else could feel the same bout themselves. Stephanie said about the photos:
“I was shocked. I look so in love and confident. Every person should be able to see themselves in that light. It is really eye-opening.”
According to Boredpanda, Bria also thought that the photos were truly amazing as the deep connection between the couple is obvious from the shots. She also said:
“It has always been my hope as a photographer to show people the beauty that they hold, and I feel like I’ve done this here. I am a firm believer in love. Size, race, religion, and sexuality are all things that are at times used to divide us, but at the end of the day, we all just want to be loved. I think that’s why these photos have become so popular. Above all else, you can see the love that these two share.”
