Australian birth photographer, doula, and mom Lacey Barratt is going viral with her project encouraging women to stop body-shaming, especially in front of their children.
Called the Humans Uncensored Project, the mother of five was inspired in 2015 by the many, many thinkpieces about Kim Kardashian's naked selfie, Barratt wanted women to feel comfortable with themselves whether or not they have a "celebrity" body.
Barratt also wanted to make a point, the same point that the witch sings in Into The Woods (Anyone? No? You didn't do that show in high school?) that children are listening.
"I find myself getting ready to leave for places. Looking in the mirror, putting on makeup, checking myself out. Silently judging. Whilst I am self absorbed in myself...I fail to realise my preteen is staring at me from the open bathroom door," she wrote on Instagram. "She is watching me, my body language, my facial expressions and judging me judge myself. It is hard to remember that my children are sponges..and what I put out to them, they take it all in."
She shared a picture she took of a mother with her two children, marking up her "flaws" as her son joins in.
Barratt interviewed women in her home, asking them how society has affected their body image.
She asked women's partners to react to the photos, and if they see the flaws women so frequently see in themselves.
If only we could all see what our loved ones see.
