Beauty Revived

by Michelle Gifford | Guest Contributor

You’ve seen the videos, right?  The social experiment commercials showing how real beauty is lost on real women.  I love them.  These circulate through social media so quickly because it strikes a chord in our hearts.  It is something that we all believe in.  We want so badly to take back the true meaning of beauty which has been taken away by advertisers and tv producers.  These videos are wonderful and share such a great message.  I watch, I feel and that’s the end…until now.

One day, I woke up and decided it was time to stop watching and start snapping.  Photographers aren’t just picture takers.  They are storytellers, journal writers and history keepers.  We decide which stories to tell.  When we look back at the lives we document, will we have told the stories that matter?  I think we should.  We have a real chance to make a real difference.  Let’s make a difference and capture the stories worth telling.  Let’s revive beauty and remind the world what it REALLY looks like.  Beauty isn’t your size, your style or your status.  Beauty is how you treat others.  Beauty is service when weary, grace in defeat and kindness when tried.  Beauty is as beauty does.  So, if you are photographer who wants to find the stories worth telling, join us.  We are Beauty Revived: Beauty through the lens of photographers who care.

Beauty Revived is a site that feature[s] sessions from photographers who give away a session to women who are truly beautiful.  To kick off our Beauty Revived movement, we have collaborated with 30 of Utah’s most talented photographers to find Utah’s 50 Most Beautiful Women.  For the past few months, photographers all over the state have been on a search for the women who make a difference in the lives of others, show courage and are the epitome of true beauty.  None of these women share the same age or circumstance, but their stories have a common thread: they are all influencing others by their acts of kindness, love and courage.   

If you are interested in being a part of the Beauty Revived movement, no matter what skill level or city you live, 

Here’s what you need to do:

-find someone who is truly beautiful

-offer them a free session to tell their story

-submit your pictures and your story to be featured on Beauty Revived.

Please visit www.BeautyRevived.com for the complete details and ENTER THEIR GIVEAWAY for a chance to win a over $1200 in prizes including an Annual Chic membership {$78 value!}
