Portrait

Me In My Place ® - beautiful women at home

Real women in their own place.  Not too crazy and just a pinch of naughty…

By creating evocative and alluring portraits of women with body types that have traditionally been left out of mainstream media, Me In My Place is redefining a genre that has been over-run with unrealistic expectations of what it means to be beautiful.  With full acceptance of the “male gaze”, the images promote not just acceptance, but also an aspirational message about everyday appeal.  The project is a celebration and is meant to be fun and open to all.

In an effort to monetize the project to keep it going, we created a simple mobile web app, more commonly called THE MIMP APP (https://mimp.findrow.com).  This gave fans of the project a simple and inexpensive way to show support.  In exchange, they receive more images, exclusive images that are not on the tumblr, and the ability to quickly view and ‘like’ their favorite content.

The MIMP APP was such a success, we decided there must be other content providers like us who would like to give their fans something extra, so we created FINDROW.  With flexibility that Instagram and Facebook won’t allow, we give our content providers the freedom to express themselves as they see fit… even if that is not always safe for work ;-)  Again, they control their own content and are leading the conversation about how they feel beautiful in the world.  For a complete list of all the Findrow apps, click here.

A Day with Me…  A Day with Karla… 

Just in case you missed it yesterday, here is a little reminder about our new A Day with Me project here on MIMP.  For all you lovely’s out there that I can’t get to, this is a great way to be apart of the project.  Shoot simple self portaits for an entire day…  shots of you, what’s in your place, what the sky looks like where you are, what you eat that day… you get the idea.  Then just shoot me an email and we’ll get you on the site.  It’s turning out to be a total winner :-)

A Day with Me…  A Day with Karla… 

"Born in the Philippines and raised in Miami, FL. Being the only girl in a family of three kids, I was sheltered for all of my life. I battled self-esteem and confidence issues and it made high school a living nightmare. College made life a little better, but I still didn’t feel comfortable in my own skin. Finally, I decided to become healthier. I started eating better and joined a gym, which helped me lose weight and made me a happier person. For once in my life, I am finally comfortable in my body and actually find myself attractive. Because becoming healthier has made me happier, I want to share that with other people who struggle with body issues and show them that they too are beautiful, it just takes a journey to realize that."
