Most Beautiful Woman in the World: Take that Angelina and Halle!

Teresha: My family is full of women with smooth skin ranging from cafe au lait to dark chocolate in color. In addition to their perfect complexions, they tend to have narrow features. I have a round face and struggled with acne all my life until a homeopath diagnosed me with a gluten allergy. My point is that I grew up being told I was ugly or the more PC "not very pretty," and I believed it. Even as an adult, I have a hard time accepting compliments about my looks. It took being pregnant for me to finally recognize my own beauty. I may still not fit society's definition of beauty (or my family's), but it doesn't matter...I am gorgeous! To prove it, the hubby and I recently had maternity photos taken. We were both sick with a stomach bug, and I threw up and fainted during the shoot, (I think I've discovered the models' secret). But our photos turned out perfect and I can't stop looking at them...does that make me vain? I don't care! So this is what it's like to feel like the most beautiful woman on Earth!

Damon: Yeah - so despite the vomiting and fainting, the shoot went really well. I have always thought that Teresha was the most beautiful girl in the room (no matter what room we are in). So - I love the shots and I can't wait for our next turn in the studio when Marlie gets here.

I had a girlfriend get pregnancy photos taken as well, and now I'm jealous of hers AND yours. :) But that glow that they say women get? Yeah, not me so much. LOL I never really felt glowy or soft or any of those other "pretty" adjectives during pregnancy. It's okay...I think I was wielding a knife in a photo my husband took of me at home. :) You two look gorgeous!!

Those are the best pregnancy photos I have ever seen! I cannot believe that anyone ever told you that you were less than 100% gorgeous! You're drop dead gorgeous! Some people in your family have been sniffing too many paint fumes or something....

Hi, I'm just stopping by from SITS and taking a look through your posts. I just had to say that you are one absolutely gorgeous lady! (And you didn't do half bad on your hubby either! :0) I can't imagine that you ever thought, or were told, that you were anything less than beautiful. That is just crazy!

Good luck with your delivery. May it be quick and easy and may your baby be completely healthy.

Many Blessings,

Teresa <><
