Hello all! Name is Vanessa. What I am about to write, will probably make no sense to some, but I hope it will to others. Growing up some kids are teased for being "ugly", "chubby", "stupid", etc. Me.... I have always been teased for being "pretty". I always hated when anyone would tell me how "pretty" or "beautiful" I was, because I never saw (see) what they saw, in the mirror, when I looked at myself. I've always preferred being called "humble" or "amiable". Weird, I know. But I am weird, and I've learned to accept that. :) I've gone through a lot and I've always been the type to try and please and take care of those around me, but I think enough is enough. I want to do something for ME for once. I want to be able to see myself in the way everyone else does. I think that the art of photography can give me that. It can help me get that self-esteem, I am in MUCH need of. I see these girls on here, different colors, shapes, and sizes. And all of them seem so confident, and I want to know what that feels like. I have the urge to gain confidence and be able to call myself beautiful for once, and actually mean it. I'm down to earth. I love to laugh. I'm a big kid really, and I take pride in that. Of course, I know when I need to be serious, but that doesn't mean I'm going to be the girl who walks around with a stick up her, you know what, all the time. This is a new time in my life. I'm excited. And if you're willing to help me out, I'm willing to put in the work. Message me if you are interested. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this. Hope to hear from you soon!
