Lauren Jauregui of Fifth Harmony recently posted about her photoshoot with photographer Nicole Cartolano. Turns out the photoshoot titled "Bare With Me" was shot with her ex-girlfriend Lucy Vives, serving as a coming out project for the two of them. The photos were taken at the end of 2016 and are just surfacing now after the couple has reportedly split. Cartolano spoke on the shoot stating,
"Both girls trusted me to photograph them together as sort of a coming-out, but they were nervous how their families would respond and the publicity they'd attract, especially from the Latin American community. ‘Bare With Me' is a compromise which allowed us to describe what Lauren called ‘love in the 21st century.' We felt like the way that these photographs are presented are very disarming, sensual, and empowering all at once. And they're not provocative or with ill intent. … It was important to use their voices to show the world that this is OK, this is acceptable, in the gentlest way possible."
The shots came out stunning and we are so proud of your strength Lauren! Thank you for sharing a little piece of your life with us and for taking a risk. We love you! Check out pics from the shoot below.
