Mission Statement

Growing Up Girl is a collaborative project celebrating individualism, beauty, and the empowerment of women. The basic premise is to promote a healthier, positive message for women of all ages, ethnicities, body types, and backgrounds. Since my portrait sessions are basically my interpretations of each of my subjects, I wanted to find a way where each individual could have a voice too. I’ve invited each participant to write a short personal essay about being a woman. Their stories, coupled with my images, are incredibly powerful. This is a collection of stories from many courageous women, with lived experiences. It is a chance for each participant to share, be seen and be heard. The goal is to inspire young women and girls to feel more confident and self-assured. We all have great perspective in our own individual ways. Considering all that is in flux with our world today, I feel this message is vital. — Lori Pedrick

 

Artist Statement

A portrait is a celebration of an individual, a commitment to slow and careful observation of beauty and uniqueness. The desire for acceptance lives within us all. I seek to embody the spirit of women, in their
glorious, natural state. I aim to capture the strength and confidence in each of my subjects so that she too may see herself in the most positive, healthy light. My portrait sessions are a collaboration, a time of openness shared between women. The culmination of this exchange helps to empower the subject, the viewer, and myself. I am exploring current standards of beauty in our culture.
