What is Beauty Revived?
Beauty Revived is a site and online and print publication dedicated to telling the stories of real women with real beauty. In a world where the media celebrates only those with perfect skin, weight and hair, Beauty Revived is a site that focuses on real beauty. Photographers from all over the world donate photography sessions to women who exemplify this real beauty. These sessions are featured on our blog.
What is the Beauty Revived’s Mission Statement?
To uplift, inspire and empower photographers of faith and integrity to shed light on the good, the strong and the beautiful.
When do campaigns happen?
Every other month, we host a campaign that focuses on a specific group. In the past we have done: 50 Most Beautiful H.S. Seniors, 50 Most Beautiful Mothers, 50 Most Beautiful Children, 50 Most Inspiring Adoption Stories
Who is able to be a part of the campaigns?
Photographers are able to apply to be one of the 50 to be a part of the campaign. The application process includes submitting your site and social media sites for review. The sessions completed by the chosen 50 photographers are featured on the Beauty Revived blog and in the Beauty Revived print and digital magazine.
Are there fees for applying to the campaign?
There is a $15 fee to apply to be one of the 50 photographers for the campaigns but there is no fee to submit a general Beauty Revived session.
Where does the money go?
This money goes to help run the Beauty Revived site and campaigns. There are a lot of costs that go into running the site (business fees, assistants, website costs, etc…) and charging a small fee for applications allows the site to be run without asking for donations. It also helps keep the applicants limited to those photographers who are serious about being a part of the campaign.
I thought Beauty Revived was a charitable organization? So why is there any charging at all?
The purpose of Beauty Revived has never been to make money. Having a small application fee does allow for it to be self sustaining. On a personal note, I, Michelle the founder, have donated hundreds of hours and dollars to Beauty Revived because I believe so much in its message. As the movement has progressed, so have the responsibilities of the blog. Because it is growing and because I’m a mom to four young children, I have found it necessary to hire an assistant to keep the movement progressing. I’ve also found need to update the site and other business related costs. The small application fee for the campaigns, which is not uncommon in the photography industry, allows for Beauty Revived to expand and its message to reach more people. So, I thank you. I thank you for being willing to donate your time and money to this cause. It would not be possible without you.
What if I don’t make it as one of the 50 photographers for the campaign?
You can still participate by donating a session that corresponds with that campaign’s theme. The month of the release of the magazine will be dedicated to that campaign’s theme.
What about Beauty Revived sessions that aren’t part of the campaign?
We accept general Beauty Revived sessions at any time. You do not have to wait for a specific campaign. you can donate a session at any time and submit it here.
What is a Beauty Revived Session? A Beauty Revived session is a session donated by a photographer to a woman who displays attributes of true beauty. These sessions can be done any way and style but should be appropriate to tell their story.
Who should be in my Beauty Revived session? We welcome women ages 12 and older. These sessions can be done of the individual or them with their family or spouse or anyone that helps tell their story. The focus should be kept on the woman.
Will everyone that submits a session be featured? Featured sessions will be chosen based on quality of work and level of expertise in photography.
Can I do a Beauty Revived session even if I don’t get featured? Of course! I encourage every photographer at any skill level to give back and find those around them with true beauty.
Where can I buy Beauty Revived shirts? You can purchase shirts at our shop here. We love to see photographers wearing Beauty Revived shirts, especially on Instagram.
