We met Millie, the face behind M BRAND PHOTOGRAPHY, where all good connections take place these days, online via IG. And it was love at first DM.
At BITS, we’re all about celebrating individuality and normalising ALL body types, so we couldn’t love what Millie is all about any more.
Through sharing vulnerabilities, and intimate stories, Millie has connected over 14,000 women.
Now, we invite you to join the movement too.
We partnered up with Millie, and some of her community, to help spread the #LOVEYOURBITS message.
This is Bri’s story…
MEET: BRIANNA, @briannacreenaune
Burn survivor, childcare worker and body positive influencer
Bri’s Bits: L/14DD
I am a burn survivor and what you may call a micro influencer. During the day my life is working in childcare with young kids and on the weekends I’m in my underwear doing photoshoots! I love both of my works, completely different and yet the same in teaching people how to love themselves and see others as more than just a body or their outside appearance. My page is all about my own self-love journey and how I have reached the point I’m at today.
My relationship with my body:
As a teenager I always struggled with my body image and my weight. After I was burnt I had a whole new body I needed to accept. This traumatic event pushed me harder I could have ever imagined but it ended up being a catalyst in my self-love journey, pushing me to accept and celebrate the scars I would have forever. It’s helped me learn to love myself at any shape or size and it’s changed my perception entirely of my own body as well as other peoples.
About the bits I wore for the shoot:
The underwear is so soft and comfy and just completely moulds to your shape which I love! And I have never had such a supportive bra (that’s still super cute!)
How I found the experience of being photographed:
I’ve shot with Millie before so for me this was just a fun little catch up! She is such a beautiful woman that is so easy to get along with, you’re barely aware you’re shooting at all. My first shoot with her felt just the same, like I was catching up with an old friend! Her work and way of connecting people inspires me endlessly.
What I do to help love your bits:
One of the first things I did to help me see myself in a different way was sit down and take photos of all of my scars. It was the first time I looked at my body as a symbol of strength, when I’m feeling crappy, I still do this and take photos that make me feel like a work of art. It makes me see myself in a way my 12 year old self never thought I would.
