Real Women Au Naturale Project

Every Woman Has a Story and Their Story Should be Told….

Let me tell your story with my photographs

All you brave & independent women out there……. We are asking you to come forward and share your most valuable, vulnerable,  personal stories and experiences that you think other women can benefit from in hearing your story.

Think of this blog as a place to release any baggage, a way to get things off your chest,  put it out there and hang it to dry.

This is an opportunity to get your message out to women and make an impact in other people’s lives.

We will choose a new woman every month, for the next 12 months to feature your face and body to be photographed naturally, with barely any retouching.

Let us prove to you that your insecurities, your stories and your vulnerabilities are viewed as strength and not weaknesses.

This is your chance to share your story with the rest of the world and we want to help you tell your story with our photographs.

We want to transform how all of us were raised in comparing ourselves to one another and demonstrate what REAL WOMEN look like…

If you are interested in submitting your story, please send your submissions to:

The REAL WOMEN AU NATURALE PROJECT was designed to empower women, young and old, to feel beautiful the way you are through your story and our natural photographs. Society and magazines have mentally distorted the way we look at ourselves and how we compare ourselves to what we think “REAL women and their bodies should look like.”  We want to make an impact on other people and start supporting our business based on our personal beliefs – that we do not have to be super model thin, nor do we need tons of photo-shopping to make us beautiful.  We want REAL women to recognize you are beautiful inside and out, you are worthy, we are giving you permission to love yourself and this is a safe place to walk into and not feel like you are going to be judged.

We will love you the way you are, see beauty in your imperfections and remind you, you are deserving of love and loving yourself.

Please pass on this Project to any friends or family members that you feel may benefit from participating in this experience, & share share share!

Angela’s Story – February

  • Sarah Gomes

    Hello. My name is Sarah and I am currently a graduate student at Chestnut Hill College’s DeSales campus for clinical and counseling psychology. I am going to focus my practice when I graduate to help people with addictions and eating disorders. I am also a certified yoga instructor. My goal is to help those with addictions (and eating disorders are addictions) through mindfulness, meditation, yoga, and traditional cognitive behavioral therapy. My passion stems from my own experience as well as from witnessing people close to me suffering in silence. Ever since I was about 8 years old, when I went through a “chubby” stage – turning to food for comfort during a chaotic home life – I thought I was fat. Adults in my life wanted to put me on a diet and it really affected my self esteem. Fast forward a few years to when I was around 12 or 13. I began to run every day and cut my fat intake to only 5 grams of fat/day! I lost a significant amount of weight and in 8th grade, the nurse at school pulled me aside saying that I looked very thin and she was worried about me. That was the beginning of my battle with yo yo dieting and food restriction. I still struggle to this day with body image issues, looking at my “flaws” instead of my whole self. However, yoga has helped me tremendously to feel strong and confident. It has helped with anxiety as well as body awareness. When I am in tune with my body and what it needs, it makes it difficult to restrict calories and/or binge. It just doesn’t feel right. So, over the years I have learned to become more aware, but I still have more work to do. I hope to become part of this project by sharing my story to help others with similar experiences.

  • I am currently three months in recovery from an eating disorder. I kept this disorder a secret from all of my friends and many of my family members. In honor of National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, I have decided to share my story with my loved ones for the first time. I created this website, (just an hour ago) to explain some of my journey. After submitting this comment to you, I will take a deep breath, say a prayer, and publish my website for all my friends, family, and the world to see. I am healthy again, and I want the world to know it!

    Thank you for considering me and checking out my story.

  • Tracy Resetar

    Im 46.
    Im a survivor of domestic violence. I have an eating disorder.
    Although I have a handle on it now…everyday is still a challenge.
    I was with my husband since Im 24. He was a drug addict, alcoholic who was verbally & physically abusive.
    My therapist saved me!
    No one can imagine what goes on in the mind of a person who has eating disorder.
    Nothing could have prepared me for this…
