Pinup December – Duchess deBerry
In a bit of a departure from the standard pinup/burlesque theme for Pinup December, The Duchess has asked that I share this raw and may I say, completely beautiful, image of her. Read on to find out why …
What Duchess deBerry is most proud of this year … (in her own words) “The photo I’m submitting isn’t a traditional “pinup” but it’s a RAW photo from my latest shoot. I would like you to please consider using it despite the lack of hair and makeup, because I think there’s more to being a pinup/performer than just what you put on, and that’s something I only recently learned.
This year has been a year full of huge changes in both my personal and professional life. My greatest accomplishment was only recently, but I’m not any less proud of it. I regained my sense of self. I’d been drifting into some sort of strange mindset, thinking I wasn’t good enough or pretty enough or smart enough; just not enough in general. But I snapped myself out of it, when I decided that no one is responsible for my personal happiness except myself, and that every day I must CHOOSE to be happy, to succeed, to push myself and to grow into a better version of myself. Not to become like anyone, but to become my own inspiration.”
The Duchess’s charity of choice … is Kids Can.
