Completely naked and covered in empowering words, the natural beauties showed off their bodies and exposed their truest, most inspiring qualities for the world to see.
“Its purpose is to offer a platform for the participants to speak their truth by choosing positive words that represent who they are and what they strive to embody,” wrote photographer Taylor Ballantyne of her lovey #MeToo photo shoot. “The unique quality of this project is that it allows the subject to become the art director. By using her own words and body placement, she can position her body to create her own message, to make a personal and public statement and to stand in her own truth. I challenged these women to stay positive with their word choice regardless of what they were feeling in the moment to demonstrate that if we change our perspective, we have the ability to change our outcome.”
Speaking of the purpose behind the nude shoot, Ballantyne stated that while she chose gorgeous models to portray the movement, their inner beauty is what should be truly empowering.
“Though these women are undeniably breathtaking on the outside they are much more than that — they are mothers, daughters, sisters, creators, entrepreneurs, champions, role models - they are smart, strong, intelligent women that have aspirations and goals. They have voices. Voices that deserve to be heard,” she wrote on Instagram.
“Owning who we are and the choices we have made to create ourselves, is something that can make us feel proud while also challenge us to self-reflect. We are all a work in progress. In order to move forward to be better, we must own our truth and stand in it without shame and without fear,” she continued.
“These incredible women have trusted me to create a safe environment for them to explore those things about themselves. I have had the honor and privilege to get to know these women on a deeper level, to discover what’s inside each of them, and to see how these qualities have shaped their character,” concluded the photographer in her touching post.
On her account, Ballantyne shared her steamy photos of Cook, as well as of fellow models Robyn Lawley, 28, and Paulina Porizkova, 52.
The beauties voiced their pride over the shoot, with Cook even commenting one Ballantyne’s post: “I’m so proud of you Taylor!”
