Two Border women are shining a light on female body positivity.
And after the first photo shoot was a roaring success, the pair are looking to continue helping other women feel comfortable and beautiful in their own skin.
Nicola Hutton and Kelsey McKay, of Kelsey Jayne photography, brought together a handful of local women for the initial photoshoot last month aimed at encouraging women to feel comfortable in front of the camera.
"While we had to postpone the initial date because of bloody COVID we ended up doing it two weeks ago with 16 women and it was amazing," Ms Hutton said.
"We had messages from women for days afterwards telling us how great they felt about their bodies, and how empowered they felt.
"It was so incredible watching the women start off by covering themselves, and by the end of the evening everyone was laughing and had relaxed completely.
"Bronwyn Wood, a local psychologist, donated a grazing platter, so everyone was enjoying something to eat and drink while they were posing.
"It was wonderful to see the strengthening of that relationship between food and body image as well.
"The response from the photos has been amazing as well.
"The women involved left feeling so empowered, relaxed and beautiful.
"And they're digging themselves in the photos.

"We had women in wheelchairs, women breastfeeding, bald women, and queer women."
The pair are now planning two more photoshoots to continue the body love.
The second photoshoot will be at Mount Buffalo on Sunday, March 28 at 5.30pm.
"It will be a bit more adventurous, with a bit of bush walking needed to get to the spot," Ms Hutton said.
"Women are encouraged to wear bathers as it's a local swimming spot." There is a Facebook group that people can join to keep track, or people can text or call Ms Hutton on 0412 985 842 or email email@example.com for more information.
They are again asking for a small financial contribution to cover the photographer's costs.
The third photoshoot will be in June which will be a body positivity photoshoot specifically for the queer community. "We plan on doing it at a local snow field," Ms Hutton said.
"Think rainbows in the snow."
Women who are interested in getting involved in the project can contact Ms Hutton.
"The female body is absolutely amazing, and I am so passionate about helping women to see that and change that negative mental narrative," Ms Hutton said.
