These images were captured before March 2020, and were not taken during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Some events are just events. Some events are transformative for everyone involved, and Camp Heal was one of the latter. Around a hundred people gathered in Angeles National Forest for three days to explore, laugh, cry, improve their body image, be vulnerable, move forward in recovery from eating disorders, and enjoy a body-safe camp experience.
We also heard from luminaries like Carolyn Costin (legendary recovery author and founder of Monte Nido), Kara Richardson Whitely (author of Gorge), actor and comedian Jen Ponton, Bevin Brandlandingham (of Fat Kid Dance Party), Kara Hardman (of the Curvy Kili Crew), recovery specialists Jennifer Rollin and Dr. Colleen Reichmann, and many more. I was privilege to capture some of the most amazing moments.
Please enjoy volume 3 of my favorite shots from camp.
