    Owning it with Annette McNamara: Embracing Adventure

    Owning it with Annette McNamara: Embracing Adventure

    Tiffany O'Donnell talks to Annette McNamara. In Sept 2018, long time photographer Annette, had an idea for her own photoshoot. Growing up she struggled with her self-image and allowed other’s negative words to affect how she saw herself. Beautiful Strength was born out of a need to say those struggles out loud and finally accept herself for who she was. No filters, no Photoshop, just her and her words. That one idea blossomed into an initial shoot that consisted of 45 people. Little did she know that throwing this positivity out into the world would connect to a bigger purpose… the need for ALL people, regardless of race, gender, sexuality, religion, political views, economic status, whatever… to be heard and have a chance to connect with others. Annette never could have imagined that one shoot would lead to so many awesome stories and connections. She believes everyone deserves to be told I see you, you are beautiful, you are strong, and you are loved.

    On today's episode, Annette talks about her project, Beautiful Strength and what inspired her to name her sparkly bus, Atticus.
