Hey friends,

I'm so incredibly excited to share the images from this Project Beauty shoot with you! It was awesome to strip it back to simple. There was no hair or makeup, natural light, and no retouching. This was all about true beauty not the superficial beauty that society forces on us every day, but something deeper. Something with more meaning. So below, you'll find 9 amazing girls who shared what true beauty means to them along with their images and our behind the scenes video. 


"Rather than seeking a definite denotation, beauty holds an obscure concept in which no single person can ultimately recognize and define beauty based off of a physical trait. Beauty can only be obtained from ones actions and through character. In order to perceive beauty, one must find it within themselves first."-Anne


"Beauty, expressing yourself to the world letting them know that you are pretty in your own way. Letting your beauty come out and telling the world that I'm so happy that this is me." - Courtney


"When I think of beauty I think of art. I don't just mean art in museums but the art of life. I like to think of people as little paintings because everyone has their own style, story and pieces that are ever changing. And while your painting the piece known as yourself your also painting the world around you and I think that's beautiful." -Bri


"Beauty is not just how you look physically but how you express your inner self and feel confident in your own skin."-Brianna


"Beauty is entirely subjective. No matter how simple or complex it might be we all possess it. In the end, we will only be remembered by how our inner beauty leaked through." -Mya


"Beauty is not what clothes you wear or what make up you put on but rather what's inside, what kind of person you are and that is what should be glorified and appreciated more than anything else. "- Courtney


"There are so many ways that someone or something could be beautiful. Like when you see how passionate someone is about something and just how genuinely happy they are i feel like that's beauty. When someone doesn't care as much about how they look and more about what they're doing and getting better, that's beauty. It's not as much in someone's looks but more like their personality and the way they think. Intelligence is beauty."- Kirsten


“Personally I think it all has to do with your flaws; what you are and aren't. Which is what makes you most attractive. Physical aspects aren't as important as what lies inside us and what our personalities have to offer :) "- Natalie


“To me beauty is having confidence and really loving yourself & being comfortable in your own skin. “- Kayla
