“As I have reached the half way point (50) I realize more and more how important it is to practice self love and acceptance. I have two young daughters (11 and 17) and as their mother I owe it to them to to model this behavior. We live in a constantly changing and critical world, and sometimes we can be our own worst enemy.

The ‘For Real’ shoot was a chance for me to do something for myself and to teach my girls (and maybe others) that it’s ok to look natural and be yourself inside your own body at any age. Trisha is a true artist and her gift to let women be who they are through her photography is her gift to us.”
