Jade Beall Celebrates Real Beauty
Photographer Jade Beall has started an incredible, commendable project. She never saw herself as someone who was considered to have “traditional standards of beauty” and after giving birth herself, she made the courageous decision to post a semi-naked self portrait onto her Facebook profile page. The untouched image was an instant hit, with women all over the world sharing and liking the photo. It wasn’t long until they started sending Jade request’s to capture their own post-partum bodies too. Of course, she accepted and so began the ‘Beautiful Body’ project.
After she began lensing other women, the project turned into a mission for Jade, who saw it as the perfect opportunity to “redefine beautiful,” with countless women feeling empowered and attractive because of this project. They began to stop looking at themselves as ruined and began to take great pleasure in embracing themselves, with their families and children showing an unbelievable amount of love and admiration for them.
