s women we always feel that we are not good enough, that we can be better looking, smarter, stronger, better parents, more educated, you name it. We have a lot of self esteem issues, and a lot of self doubt. I spent a majority of my life thinking so poorly of myself, until I became a mother. Not just a mother, but my first child was a little girl.
I remember the first moment I looked into her beautiful eyes, she was the most gorgeous little being that I have ever set eyes on.
As time goes on she grows and somehow, even though I had raised my daughter to breath fire, even though I raised her to believe in herself, that the sky is not the limit, that she can do, be, become, whatever she dreamed and to be herself no matter what, because there is nothing more important then being true to who you are.
DESPITE ALL OF THAT MY NOW 13 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER
*Hates having her picture taken
*Feels she is to tall and too skinny
*Shames her body
*Puts herself down openly
This has been the same way fort the past 2-3 years. I feel like I have just watched the world take my daughters confidence and suck it straight out of her body little by little.
Because I could not and will not accept the situation, I worked harder to motivate my daughter, surrounding her with as much women empowerment that life had to offer, somewhere in between the realization of what society is doing to girls and now... With how strongly I have been trying to build my daughter up, I accidentally fixed my own outlook on life. I felt stronger, and started doing small things to improve myself because that's what makes me feel better about myself, that's what builds my confidence, building my knowledge and growing as a person.
I started Fleek Photography in June 2019 because Owning my own Photography Business has been something that I have been dreaming about for as long as I can remember .
