This month, we’re thrilled to welcome our very own Ciara as part of our #beboldbeyou guest blogger for March 2019. This lovely lady is the voice of our Firefly phones and is extremely talented in a variety of the business.
She’s enrolled on a college course to learn graphic design and had a fantastic topic which she embraced in the only way Ciara can… We’re thrilled with the final graphic she produced along with her take on the subject of “tolerance”. Let us hand over to Ciara (but before we do, just to let you know, we’re really proud of you!)
As part of my college course I had the task of creating a poster surrounding “tolerance”. I chose the controversial subject of diversity, exploring topics such as racism, gender, sexual orientation and body image.
For my final design I created a piece focused on women and body positivity. Our current generation is widely influenced by the media which can have both positive and negative impacts. When it comes to body image many of us feel there is an expectation to look a certain way in order to be classed as beautiful. This expectation has been supported by what we see in the media, including television, magazines and even social media.
As women who may not fall into society’s guidelines of being beautiful it can often create disappointment and the feeling of imperfection, which can lead to a whole heap of issues including self doubt, confidence issues and more severely depression or body dysmorphia. We are all guilty of comparing ourselves to other people and wanting to change aspects of the way we look (me included!), however I wanted to create a piece to promote body confidence for all women, no matter their shape or size. My piece unites women together creating empowerment and overall portrays the message that no matter what you look like, what shape you are or even how tall/small you are that everyone is beautiful in their own way and that learning to love yourself is important.
“be bold be you, everyone else is already taken”
Our aim is to get as many men and women to be bold by embracing a photoshoot at Firefly Photography at our studios in either Derby or Lichfield. We have so many shapes sizes & styles come through our studio doors and it’s time to show those who are too scared to pick up the phone that they can do it too (and we’re rather lovely to talk to!). To arrange a FREE, no obligation, chat by phone about what photoshoot we can offer you simply enter your details below and a member of the Firefly team will be in touch. #BeBoldBeYou Experiences are priced at £59. Our bookings team are available Wednesday through to Saturday from 10am until 5pm except for Saturdays when we close at 4pm.
