This outfit was from my very first shoot ever for Mind the Curves.
It was in a freezing parking garage, with a photographer who patiently waited for me to stop pulling faces and playing the fool, while my stylist sweetly instructed me on how to pose, and ensured that I had a neck in the pictures and that they weren’t all just up-the-nostril shots, on top of doing all of the important stylisty things.

I learned a tremendous amount that day.

When I think back on it, I’m met with a strong wave of insecurity, and recall the mortification of having a camera pointed at me and how uncomfortable I was being the centre of attention for such a long period of time.

But when I look at the pictures, I see other things too. That dress is completely outside my comfort zone, but I dared to wear it. I got over myself, and my fears to take the first step towards a project I really believed in. If I can do that on day 1, what else can I accomplish on this journey?
