Colombian-born Carolina Guzik is a professional photographer based in Florida.
“I started photographing myself in 2006 when one day it just hit me that my body needed to be explored, documented and ultimately glorified. For many years I was under the impression that I was not pretty enough, tall enough or skinny enough, but as soon as I started documenting myself in an intimate way, I discovered that my body was just perfect as it is, and I embraced all my flows with open arms! The journey has been amazing and I am ecstatic to work with women of all races and shapes. I am here to empower women and to help them get their sexy back ” – Carolina Guzik
