Embracing and loving our bodies is a conversation that needs to be ongoing. It's vital to start these conversations early. Embrace Your Body is about loving and embracing our bodies TODAY! That doesn't mean you should stop achieving, gaining, losing, accepting or whatever else you want for your body. It means you should allow yourself to love you today.
Let's teach girls to respect their bodies, be kind to themselves, love who they are and give others grace. This is not easy; we must constantly work on it.
We will pair seven high school/college-aged young women who are interested in photography with seven professional photographer mentors. The girls will be given one-on-one photography coaching and will be paired with two younger girls for a photo session.
We will have a one day shooting event at the Franklin Street Bazaar on the morning of Saturday, Sept. 9. The park, Franklin Street and its shopping vendors are available for the shoot.
These photos will be displayed at our Girls: Embrace Your Body event on Oct. 21.

The application will close on Friday, Aug. 5. We will notify the chosen photographers by Monday, Aug. 7, and that week we will give the details of who their mentor and models are.
