Body Hair Picture Book

Hi! I'm Cat :)

I want to encourage self-love, body positivity and body acceptance, specifically, accepting & loving our natural body hair.

A few years ago, I quit shaving and embraced my natural body hair. This path has led me to accept myself in ways I never could have if I'd continued to shave away a part of myself.

I believe that society has created a culture of body-hate, which contributes to self-harm, eating disorders, depression, anxiety and suicide.  And I intend to do everything I can to change that.

MY GOAL: Create a picture book of females and males embracing their natural body, hair and all. I want this book to be beautiful,  I want this book to be inspiring.
My hope is that everyone who reads this book will be inspired to fall in love with their natural, beautiful, magical self.

I've met thousands of people who think body hair is awesome & beautiful.  And I've met many girls who want to see more women confidently rocking their hair! The more we see something, the more normalized it becomes, and the more comfortable we are with it.

YOUR DONATION: Your donation will go towards photo shoots, props, set design, equipment, travel, & compiling and printing the book once enough photos have been accumulated. This is a long-term project & I'm so excited to get started.

WHAT YOU GET: For every donation above $200 (or sometimes less if possible)  I will do my best to dedicate a picture to you! If you donate and want a picture dedicated to you, you can suggest what color, prop or theme you want for the picture.  (Keep it appropriate & respectful, obviously.)

EVERYONE who donates will appear in the book's Thank You page, because this book will only be possible with your help!

I will be so incredibly thankful for each and every donation. Even if all you can do is share this donation page, you'll be helping a great deal!

Back at it, working on the book! In a couple weeks, I'm doing a cool photoshoot with an amazing photographer, and those photos will be used in the book! I'm so thankful for the donations, which allow me to pay this wonderful female photographer for her services. I'm excited because I want great photos for the book, and I'm just so happy that the donations have made that possible!

We've done a few very successful shoots, and are excited to do more! I'm now looking for models in Florida, so if you or anyone you know wants to model for the book, send an email to bodyhairbook@gmail.com with info, social handles, etc. ❤️✌️

Thanks to my first donation from Courtney Foxe, I have my first picture for the book!
I've decided that for every donation above $20 (and sometimes less if possible) I will do my best to dedicate a picture to the donator.
If you donate and want a dedicated picture, you can suggest what color, prop or theme you want for the picture! (Keep it appropriate and respectful, obviously.)
Hope everyone is having a great morning!
To Courtney Foxe, for being the first ray of sunshine for this project!

Good luck with this. Fully supported my me! How about including fat hairy men like me? I know the central theme is embracing women having hair, but I recently stopped being ashamed of being fat (I've just messaged you on tumblr), though I want to lose weight to stop damaging my health. Body looks are not the person!

A beautiful image / photo set of you in a glamorous ball gown or something similar, that highlights your gorgeous natural body hair. Just because we have hair, doesn't mean we are any less stunning! This book is a lovely idea, I can't wait to see it. Much love and moonlight xx
