Behind The Scenes of the "Why I Love My Body" Photo Shoot

On August 21, 2010, twelve women came together in a photo studio in Williamsbrige, Brooklyn, answering the call of Editor-In-Chief Ms. Aja B. to take part in an editorial entitled, "Why I Love My Body". One fab photographer, one super stylist, 2 make-up artists, seven models (and ONE air conditioner seemingly on its last legs) later, the following is the result and declaration to serve as inspiration for plus size women everywhere--Love Your Body! TODAY!

Here are some behind the scenes images!
