How Taking Nude Photos Helped Me Fall in Love with My Body

When I was 29 years old, I took my clothes off for a professional photographer. I posed, I contoured my body, and I stared into the camera with my sexiest pout.

The entire experience was empowering, healing, and exactly what I needed at that point in my life.

For the record, I’m not a girl who ever before had much interest in naked images of myself. To this day, I’ve still never sexted a nudie. And to say I’ve got some body image issues would be an understatement though I’d like to think I’m at a healthier place with each passing year.

The real reason for that photo shoot was because I was broken and I was trying with everything inside of me to claw my way out of the hole I had fallen in.

Just a year and a half before, I had undergone my second IVF cycle. Like the cycle before that, it failed. My body had let me down in this agonizing way that I had never before believed would be possible.

I would never carry a baby. The one thing I had known I wanted my entire life was now forever out of my reach. And I hated my body for that fact.
