Meet Gen

Gen's story is a little different from the other ladies who received a complimentary makeover and photoshoot this year. While some of the others needed a boost, a pick-me-up, Gen's session was all about celebration. Over the last year, she committed to getting healthy and lost an incredible amount of weight through nutrition and exercise. Now, let me be clear: my intent is not to glorify being thin. My intent is to celebrate the commitment and discipline people adhere to in order to obtain healthy goals.

Gen was not camera shy, and she was a ton of fun to work with! You can see the fierceness and pride in her expression. Check it out below:
