I see you trying to do all the things over there, isn’t it time for you to create space for yourself? You could be in your 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s plus. You do everything for everyone and feel like your less sexy, fiery , fun self. I’m here to tell you, you’re still you, even if you don’t feel like her. And in case you have that nagging voice in your head that keeps saying “I’m too old”, “I’m not hot enough”, or “I could never look like that.” You’re far from the truth and that voice is preventing you from doing the fun things in life, she’s a LIAR. I’m here to share the news that perfectionism is canceled and you are worthy of being photographed. I’m rooting for you, sister. <3
MEET YOUR PERSONAL CHEERLEADER

bachelor of science w/ the art institute of indianapolis

As a photographer, I am of the school of thought that authenticity > perfection. I want to celebrate the realness that’s proof of us being alive and the experiences we hold on and within our bodies. To share this is normalizing images of bodies that have aged, scars that carry meaning, and experiences that have shaped us into the beautiful realness of who we are. I chose this line of work to embrace all the messy, juicy, beautiful pieces of women.
Hi, I’m Bethany! I’ve been photographing women since 2013. When I’m not helping the modern woman feel more confident in her own skin, you can find me riding my motorcycle, hiking with my dog children Koda and Pippa, or catch me oil painting…and in light of realness, I really love a weekly binge of a great show or movie marathon.
