Photo shoot promotes healthy body image

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - A local group is hoping to raise positive awareness for young women's body image through photography. The movement is called "All Shapes are Perfect" and in an effort to boost women's self-esteem they created photo shoot that will be shared on social media.

Organizers say they hope to spread the idea that all women are beautiful inside out no matter what shape or size they are. Thirty-three ladies participated in several cowgirl themed group photo shoots along with an individual shoot at Rider Ranch on Wolf Lodge Road in Coeur d'Alene Saturday afternoon.

Event coordinator Chantel Petit says not only do they hope to promote body positivity they also hope to create a Northwest sisterhood in the process.

"Just much like the Dove movement, every women is perfect and beautiful in the skin they are given. They come out of this experience feeling better about themselves and they can go out into the world with a new confidence," Petit said.
