Beauty and Success Through Lens

Laura Govan has graced the cover of rolling out magazine October edition. We have only seen Laura's reality star side, but photographer DeWayne Rodgers sees a whole other side of the Hollywood scarlet. He says,

As the photographer on the shoot, the real story to me was the inner beauty that Govan is now working to both accept and emote more consistently. When the public constantly holds you under a microscope and critiques every imperfection, I can see how one would lose themselves, and begin to doubt whether or not they are in fact beautiful. My time with Laura revealed just that … it revealed a woman who was still coming into her own — one who was still working to reclaim the self confidence that so many women lose after child birth."

"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it." ― Confucius
