How we feel about how we look plays such a huge role in our lives. It's inevitable in our culture. From a very young age we start questioning our appearances. One study reports that at age thirteen, 53% of American girls are “unhappy with their bodies.” This grows to 78% by the time girls reach seventeen.
And it doesn’t necessarily improve as we get older. When we talk about our relationships with our bodies, most women immediately go to their relationship with how their bodies look.
On today’s podcast, we’re talking with photographer Jen Dean. Jen is so much more than a photographer. She’s a storyteller, a guide, and a healer in the journey of self-embodiment. Jen shares with us how photography has always been a part of her life, and more importantly, its impact on her personal journey and how she helps others see their beauty.
Throughout our conversation we'll explore:
- Photography as a tool for self-acceptance and self-love.
- The significance of feeling good about ourselves and how it can change how we move in the world.
- Photography as a form of storytelling that helps people connect with each other on a deeper level.
- The power of changing your beliefs and giving yourself permission to see yourself differently to impact on your confidence and self-acceptance.
