#bonnieboudiechallenge UPDATE || I've had a few girls enter who have said that the pressures of the conservative circles they run with have stopped them from entering. I've had some other girls say that they're just not comfortable in a swimsuit. And I get it. "I think I have a lot of funny ideas, and to be honest, judgments about girls who post bathing suit pictures. Some of my feelings probably stem from jealousy sometimes. But some are just like, hm." Is how one put it. I have to agree.
This is the last photo I remember posting of me in a swimsuit. A little secret: this was during the worst year of my life, I never hated my body more than in this photo. It's been a long two years since this was taken. My soul has been wrecked and healed a lot of times.
I'm not out to free any nipples, I actually prefer those kept under wraps. But we have one body, and it's high time we learn to love it for what it is. To hell with the body standards of the world.
I'm extending the contest to Saturday. Get in your swimsuit and either post or send me a photo of you in it, you could win a free boudoir (or whatever kind of glam portrait) session. I don't care how you enter, just do it. Do it because you deserve to believe that you were perfectly made. This goes for everyone. If men want to jump in for some lols for the ladies, I think we'd all get a kick out of it. (Don't forget to hashtag #bonnieboudiechallenge) Winners will be announced on Sunday. #bodypositive
Can Texas Tuesday's be a thing? Southern California sure thinks it's the Midwest, today.
Still laughing at how @rachel____williams decided this was the most effective way to cool down and decide what she wanted to wear out for birthday shenanigans. #firstin24
This is how photographers do it. We hide in bushes even if it means literal thorns in our ass and dirt in our shoes. "Proposals are the most stress you will ever feel and the best high of this job, all at once." #hiskeysayido
I know they're good ones because they understand how much I want to be part of letting my girls know how greatly they're loved. I'm 2/2 with completely fooling my friends for their proposal.
Now let's get you guys married. #hiskeysayido

Known this hilarious soul for almost a decade and he never fails to make me chuckle. Happy graduation, friend. I love you to pieces.
"I remember for my 13th birthday you wrapped my present in a Victoria's Secret bag and hyped it all up and I felt so awkward and then it was actually a super thoughtful present." I don't remember it at all. But I love the fact that 11 years later you were actually expecting everything that came with the bag.
