I felt very nervous before my photo shoot because I knew Benizo was a very well known photographer and I didn’t know if I could be powerful enough on camera. So I just went in with no expectations knowing I just wanted to have a good time and that’s exactly what happened.

There was a time when we were talking about the meaning behind the fedora and the story that created it. Hearing Ben speak so powerfully about his mission to empower women through their own vulnerability was incredibly humbling.

The reminder that as women we have more power inside us than we even realize was incredibly forceful. It made me demand myself to not only speak better of myself but to think better of myself because I deserve it!

As mentioned before, I went in with little to no expectations but being in my shoot blew me out of the water. I had so much fun. It was one of the most enjoyable and empowering shoots I’ve ever been a part of. I’m so thankful for the experience and can’t wait to do it again.

My biggest obstacle in this shoot was showing myself and my femininity. Ben helped me realize that I felt this way because of a stigma that had been placed on women and our bodies. I realized that the only opinion about my body that mattered was my own. This realization helped me push out of my comfort zone and allowed Ben and I to create art that I never thought was possible.


My experience was one I’ll never forget. Ben pushed me to a place I didn’t know I could go and still be confident. Everything about my shoot was fun and energetic. I remember most of all that I felt incredibly powerful!
