The Inspire Us Bham project was started by Laura Jett Walker, a wedding photographer, and Kali Peirsall, a wedding videographer. “ A 2005 car wreck left Piersall with a prominent scar on her forehead. Wouldn’t it be neat, she said, if Walker captured her in a makeup-free portrait?”

This conversation inspired the fun duo to host an event and photo shoot of 20 to 30 women all makeup free, celebrating raw beauty and the stories behind these inspiring women.

Piersall and Walker say their goal is to celebrate women and their individuality. “‘We’re all about people being different,’ Piersall says. ‘There’s a lot of jobs the Lord’s given me and given Laura. But judging people isn’t one of them.’”

Kerri, one of the many women involved in the project, tells her story of helping other women accept their uniqueness.

On Feb. 15, Walker will photograph these women and document each story. Applications are now closed, but you can join the event at The Nest in Avondale from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. We’ll be there!

Read Kerri’s story and many others here, and stay tuned for the release of the project!

DIY: High Waisted Shorts

Have you ever wondered how to make the summer’s hottest shorts? This how-to, step by step will give you your soon-to-be favorite pair of shorts!

Step 1: Find a pair of high waisted jeans. I used Gap in the demo, but Levi’s work the best. (Your local thrift store is filled with vintage Levi’s.)

Step 2: Cut them at an angle, low to high, from your inner thigh to your upper thigh. Make them have a slight V shape. For length: put them on before you cut them, and mark a little spot with a sharpie where you want to start cutting.

Step 3: When you have both sides cut, stick them in the wash on a basic wash cycle. After, dry them in the dryer for the perfect fringe look. Air dry works also.

Step 4: After they are completely dry, they should have fringed on their own in the wash, and you may have to cut/trim the fringe if it’s dragging down and way too long. And now, you should have your own High Waisted Shorts!

Wanting holes? Make a tiny straight line slit wherever you desire the hole to be. Stick in the wash, and it will fringe on its own!
