These pictures show me with my leg brace that I have to wear whenever I leave the house as I have missing ligaments in my knee from being ran over. I can't have surgery until I have a stronger thigh to support the new ligaments, but this is hard to improve as when I was hit it broke one of my main leg nerves - the femural one which goes along the front of the leg. I understand there are people who have to go through more on an everyday basis, but I want to show that just because you have a disability you can have your own personality as well!
I usually walk with crutches but it was amusing to try to balance to get the photo!
And finally I had one taken to show the scars on my right leg - everything on our body tells a story
The photography was a joint venture with photographer Rei Bennett, and you can find her website here: http://reibennett.co.uk/
We are wanting to take this further and Rei and myself would like to invite physically disabled or scarred girls to join us. We are choosing physically disabled or scarred girls as you can see the story they are telling through their body. It could be a scar from surgery or burns, or you could be in a wheelchair or have braces or other limb problems.It doesn't matter, and you don't even have to be a model - I haven't modelled before and Rei made me feel really comfortable.
Before I forget - all of the clothing used in the shoot is by myself except for the lingerie in the last image (and the leggings were made to fit my uneven legs too, so you don't have to be 'perfect' to have nice clothes! There's no such thing as perfect anyway!)
