Have you experienced the darkness of postpartum depression?
If you have struggled with PPD – and you’re open to sharing your story with us – we’d love to chat!
We are joining forces with professional photographer Bri Oliver to create a campaign and book, titled The Naked Truth, on postpartum depression.
In a society that fears – and shames – mental health issues, our goal is to raise awareness and shatter myths on this common issue that many women face after childbirth.
Not only has Bri gone through PPD, she has shared her story in hopes of reaching other women also struggling.
The Naked Truth campaign is calling on women to openly share their stories of PPD, and later do a boudoir photo shoot.
“There is something very powerful and liberating about doing a boudoir photo shoot,” says Bri, who has years of experience as a boudoir photographer. “Having gone through the pain of PPD, and coming out the other end with beautiful photos of yourself is incredibly liberating. It brings me immense joy to show women how truly beautiful they are with the photos I take of them.”
Bri says that the boudoir photo shoot – from the experience of getting glam, to tapping into your inner goddess during the shoot, to seeing the beautiful images – is another level of empowerment and healing after PPD.
“When women have been through the depths of PPD, survive it, and then see their images, it, truly is, a full circle moment,” Bri adds.
We are looking for participants to take part in The Naked Truth campaign. Are you willing to:
- Share your story of PPD?
- Do a glamor boudoir photo shoot (either in Vancouver, Canada or Seattle, WA)?
If this sounds like the perfect project for you, please fill out this form.
If you have any questions about The Naked Truth, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from many of you — let’s reveal ‘the naked truth’ of PPD together!
