Love Your Body

Three photographers, Sophie Spinelle, Carey Lynne  and Maxine Nienow, are doing their part to expand the definition of beauty.

In 2009, they started Shameless Photography, a photographic collective aimed at taking pictures of women and making their clients feel beautiful and confident. While their subjects may not have “ideal” body types, these photographers are so good at putting the women at ease that the results are undeniably sexy, fun, and body positive.

There’s something extra appealing about a woman who is feeling comfortable with herself.

“I’m shocked all over again. I keep looking at the pictures and thinking “Is that femme fatale really me?”

In addition to their commercial shoots, Shameless Photography holds an annual “Love Your Body” contest. Women are invited to write love letters to their bodies. The winners get a free photoshoot with Shameless Photography.

  1. I love this! There is similar, wonderful photog around my way that I love – Celeste Giuliano. I was in a calender of hers that raised money for charities (ALS) a few years back. (celestegiuliano.com if you want to check her out!)

  5. Wow, love this post. Not just a good read, very inspiring and motivational celebrating “real” women outside of the box of what is forcefully dictated as what a great body should be. They are all so beautiful.

  7. This is fantastic! These photos are what the young girls of today need to look at as role models, not the overly thin models gracing the covers of so many magazines! Beautiful women who are real!
