Karianne Munstedt is an award-winning portrait photographer and business owner, speaker, coach, and author. She is an artist and nurturer who is fiercely motivated by using her talents to make women feel confident, empowered, and whole. As a curvy woman who was very critical of her body, she spent nearly a decade hiding behind the camera, never stepping in front of it out of fear of shame and judgment around her body and choices. Now, Karianne exists fully in photos for her business and in her personal life. She routinely posts real and raw photos of herself, shifting the way we define beauty and proving that we all are worthy of existing fully in photos, no matter our perceived flaws. Karianne inspires women around the world to show up as real versions of themselves in their photos, not the “perfect” versions they were taught to show. #realisthenewperfect
