MEET KIM BRUNDAGE
Authentic | Beautiful | Playful
“You might think I’m crazy or maybe you can relate to this…My husband thinks I am beautiful and so do my friends. But what do I REALLY think? I didn’t share the same opinion of my body (not even close). I could blame people from my younger years or the media but I’ve come to realize that critical voice in my head was really my own.
I realized I wanted to see myself through my loved ones’ eyes. I started studying different poses and lighting. I made myself practice in front of the camera and thought I was going to delete all the images at first. But after time I finally saw the beautiful woman that my husband sees every time he looks at me. I finally learned how to capture the best version of myself and that is what I want to share with you.”
