I was so scared to take these photos with this phenomenal photographer. I wore no make up, no fancy lingerie (I made the panties myself) I was completely bare & honest both physically & mentally. These photos are a tool with which I can see beauty in myself & realize that no opinions of me matter. What matters is that I choose to be in love with myself & marvel at the beauty I find in me. Thank you Andrew ;)
I have been thinking about taking this picture, or something like this for nearly a week now. But, I felt like I needed to submit this one to here. This portion of the man seems to draw a lot of focus, and I see this area highlighted often on men. But, often on what one would call ‘harder’ men, and I look to be much ‘softer’ on the outside. There are no abs you can see or that nice v of muscles, there is a jiggly belly and love handles. But, that is still sexy and I want to show that. The softer man should appeal to the eye as much as any man.
I definitely understand the point you’re driving home. I think this is a great photo and it’s much more about the implied meaning behind it than rock hard abs or airbrushed muscles :).
