G Sunheart: The inspiration was I already had a fan base that was buying picture sets from me. It was good money. Easy money. Every month when I released these picture sets, it was like “oh my god!” these people are still buying these. It wasn’t a one time thing! So after the third or fourth installment of these picture set books, I was like I need to turn this into a monthly magazine. So I did and it’s still going strong!
G Sunheart: Well men have said that they are so grateful to see a woman who presents herself without makeup, without a bunch of photoshop, and is proud of the way she looks, and confident, and happy. I appear very happy in the pictures. That draws people in and I think that’s what they’re attracted to. It isn’t so much what I look like, but it’s my energy, my good positive energy.
And women are happy that I do it because it encourages them to Love themselves as they are. You know, which may be plus size, may be skinny, whatever! The whole message is to Love yourself the way you are and to show that. Be beautiful the way you are.
G Sunheart: When I was in third grade I knew I wanted to be a Playboy model. I knew that. That was what I wanted to do when I grew up. But being naturally Plus size and naturally curvier, well I don’t know if Playboy would want me to do (a feature). If they asked me I would say yes. But in the mean time I’ve created my own publication.
Comments from fans have been that the pictures are Playboy quality. But I think it’s better, because there isn’t a bunch of airbrushing, and photoshop and I’m not super skinny with big boobs. And I think it’s better in it’ own special way. But I’m still a huge fan of Playboy and I love what they do.
I love nude photography. But most of all I just love my life because I get to be so positive and do what I want and get to go where I want. I feel very blessed to have the fan base that I do, because they make it possible for me to live my dream of doing these photo shoots and being a plus size model.
G Sunheart: I got a copy of the magazine when my mom was dating this big loser. He was just a total jerk to her. But anyways, I flipped through the magazine and was like that’s what I want to do. For sure that’s what I want to do. I just thought it was so sexy and beautiful, and such an honor to be appreciated for the way you look. I don’t know if that’s shallow or vain or whatever, but I just love looking at beautiful things.
I love beautiful places. And I want to be beautiful and appreciated the way that I am. To me I’m beautiful. To each their own. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So if people love it great, if they don’t that’s ok too.
G Sunheart: Yeah. I love a guy who is generous with his time and his money and treats me like a Queen. That’s what I love. I like the finer things in life. I love to travel. I love wine tasting. And I love going to beautiful places. So a guy that is happy to accommodate he just might get the golden ticket.
Turn offs would be the flipside of that. It would be cheapskate guys, guys who try to make you feel bad about yourself, guys who say rude things. I guess they say “nice guys finish last”, but in my book it’s the opposite. Jerks finish last. Jerks don’t even get a chance. Nice guys get the golden ticket. That’s with me.
It’s basically the way they treat the people around them. Oh and if I’m out on a date with a guy and he treats the waitress/waiter disrespectfully that’s a dealbreaker, cause I know he’s a jerk. He’s gonna be a jerk to me once he gets what he wants. So if you’re on a date with me, be nice to the wait staff otherwise you’re done.
G Sunheart: What I love most about it is being a part of artwork, being a part of the photography. I like the timelessness of being a plus size model. Who knows? 60 years from now, 100 years from now, people will look at these images that are being created each month and honor it for what it is. It’s a beautiful unique form of art. And hopefully it will become a part of culture, pop culture, entertainment, and art work.
G Sunheart: Well hopefully the photographer is a hot guy! That always helps, because you’re in the presence of a hot guy. And it’s easier to be flirtier and sexier if your photographer is hot. You know that helps. I try to make sure my photographers are hot guys, so the pictures will happen. But if not, I can still get good pictures because I am very photogenic, I know my angles, I know the way the light hits me, and the way I should pose myself. I know all those things by now. So I’ll always get a good picture, but hot photographer? Super awesome!
G Sunheart: Yes, here is the best advice I can give you. If you are not happy in your life you’re not going to feel good, you’re not going to look good, you’re not going to be sexy, and you’re not going to be confident. So if you’re not happy in your life you need to acknowledge that. And realize that you are the only one that can change that for yourself. If you need to leave someone who doesn’t appreciate you, if you need to change your job, or you need to move somewhere where you’d be happier. Whatever it is you need to do to make yourself happy that needs to be your first priority.
Then once you’re happy, sexiness and confidence will follow. But you need to be happy. You are the one who decides how you live your days. You can’t blame your husband or your mom or however you were raised or whatever. You can’t do that cause you’re in charge of your life. You’re the one driving that car, so take control over yourself. Make the changes you need to make. Be happy. Cause happiness is sexy. True happiness is True sexiness!
You’re just going to attract people when you’re happy. If you’re not happy and you’re miserable you’re not going to attract anyone. So it’s not about buying stuff, it’s not about showing off, or being egotistical, it’s really about being happy. And that’s my secret to success. It’s changing the things in your life you need to be happy.
G Sunheart: I’ve been doing photography and modeling for about two years. I honed in on the Plus Size Perfection last October (2013). It became an official subscription magazine in January of this year (2014). I just realized, forget doing books, people want it every month!
Sometimes I go places that are so beautiful that the picture doesn’t do it justice. You need the film so that people can really experience the visual beauty of it. So I’m adding the films and subscriptions are $25.00 a month. That gets you the magazine and the films. And it’s quite beautiful. I get comments from my fans that are saying the month just doesn’t go by fast enough. People can’t wait for the next installment. It just makes me so happy, to know that I get to live my dreams, thanks to my fans!
G Sunheart: Yes, basically it’s like the PG-13 version of the magazine and the film, but it’s a great way to reach out and grow my audience, grow my fan base, without spending any money advertising. As is, I haven’t spent any money advertising at all! So I’ve just sort of organically attracted all my fans which is pretty freakin cool.
G Sunheart: Well as soon as I have enough subscribers to fund my travels I am planning on heading abroad, and heading out to New Zealand, Thailand, Indonesia, Iceland, Alaska, Italy, Portugal. I’m planning on spending about a month in each country. So if you live in some beautiful place and you’d like to sponsor my travels or host me then please get in touch with me because I plan on traveling the entire world. And doing my beautiful photography and magazine and films, and going to the most breathtakingly beautiful places throughout the whole world. I have to have enough subscribers to make it happen, but I’m not too far from that! So it’s really exciting and I can’t wait!
