This beautiful woman celebrated her birthday by having Beautiful You portraits taken. She had been in a dark place for several weeks, but after seeing her images she felt so much better about herself. We’ve all been there. We’ve felt too old, too fat, too skinny, too wrinkly, too something, but in reality no one else sees that. They only see our beautiful smile, our sparkly eyes, our inner beauty that shines on the outside.
What I want a woman to see with the Beautiful You collection is how her husband and others see her, not how she sees herself. I recently saw a Dove commercial on YouTube where an artist sketched a model hidden behind a curtain. The model described herself to the artist as he “blindly” sketched her. Then her friends came in and described her while he sketched a different portrait. The difference between the two sketches was amazing! The sketch with her friends description was beautiful, the other self-described sketch didn’t look like the model at all. There is beauty in all of us…it’s in the eye of the beholder!!
