EMBRACE YOUR NATURAL BEAUTY
When: Monday, March 30, 2015
Where: AFSCME, Washington, DC

Are we allowing societal factors to determine our value?

Through public speaking and social-change projects, Mrs. Cunningham is helping to shift the dynamics of beauty into a positive outlook.

We believe that although we may come from different cultures, and various life experiences, as Maya Angelou says “we are more alike than we are different”. All women wish they had things they can do better, or do at all. We all experience times when we feel we are alone in our endeavors. Every woman, no matter her walk in life, struggles with weight (issues of life).

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” ~Maya Angelou

Feminine Transitions is a tribute to that little girl who is constantly told by society that she is not beautiful. For the older woman who hides behind her mask and colors her gray hair. And to the senior woman who feels that her wrinkles are a negative reminder of growing older.

Know that you are all beautiful, just the way you are. Let the radiance you were born with shine through.

Feminine Transitions: A Photographic Celebration of Natural Beauty is a photography book that promotes and celebrates the true natural beauty of girls and women at all stages of life. It includes a portrait series of females faces ages 7 weeks to 103.

FEMININE TRANSITIONS: A PHOTOGRAPHIC CELEBRATION OF NATURAL BEAUTY

by Alyscia Cunningham

Feminine Transitions book cover and photo of Alyscia Cunningham

It has been four years in the making and Feminine Transitions is finally a physical book. This has been far from an easy process. However, it has been most gratifying to experience my project blossom from a thought to reality.

Feminine Transitions is a photography book that promotes the importance of self-love for our authentic selves as women.

This book is a tribute to that little girl who is constantly told by society that she is not beautiful. For the older woman who hides behind her mask and colors her gray hair. And to the senior woman who feels that her wrinkles are a negative reminder of growing older.

Know that you are all beautiful, just the way you are. Let the radiance you were born with shine through.

Come and join me and share the experience!
