Before each session I like to take a few moments to check in and see how someone is doing mentally. The answers have ranged from pumped to anxious to paranoid. Some people need these moments I give them to express themselves and we did just that with Hannah.
We spent far more time than I usually do chatting about life before we got to it. I enjoyed learning about her struggles and getting to know someone like a new friend. Part of what you don’t realize about this work is how close you get to someone so soon. And you want to see them love their bodies how much they deserve to.
Hannah LOVED on her body the entire session and even during her gallery preview she was kind to herself. I’m proud of her and these photographs!
