This series came to fruition a year after the concept came to mind. I've aspired to create a space that welcomes all bodies to experience empowerment in vulnerability. To bring the concept of this space to life, I reflected on my own paths in identity and self-love. I have always found peace in nature, especially in the sun's light, and I often take moments to ground in such surroundings. My practices in gratitude & mindfulness have taught me to appreciate each moment in my journey and to be open to learning from what each moment has to offer. While we are constantly evolving, I am grateful for the opportunities to photograph steps along the way.
