You’ve probably seen them. We’re talking about the now-famous body-positive photos that took the Internet by storm earlier this month. They proved that you don’t have to be a size 2 to be sexy and the Internet loved them. Unfortunately, while most of us looked at the photos and felt inspired, not everyone had such a positive response.
In a shocking turn of events, Stephanie, the woman who posed for the photos, claims she has now been fired from her job as a result of the viral photos.
Earlier this month, Stephanie and Arryn’s boudoir photo shoot went massively viral online.
The photos were taken and posted by Bria Terry of Wolf and Rose Photography.
Stephanie and Arryn (who prefer to be referred to by their first names) live in Overton, Texas and have been engaged since February of this year. You may have seen their photos as they made the online rounds.
Stephanie said she was super confident while taking the photos.
“I honestly have never felt more attractive,” she told Huffington Post. “I was so nervous to see the final result. I didn’t know what to expect. But when I saw the album, I was shocked. I look so in love and confident. Every person should be able to see themselves in that light. It is really eye-opening.”
As soon as the photos were posted, people began reacting to them in a major way.
People were impressed by both the body-positive nature of the pictures and the obvious connection between Stephanie and Arryn. The photos quickly went viral and currently have over 85,000 shares.
However, Stephanie now claims that the viral photos have cost her her job at Austin Bank Texas N.A.
