A company has terminated its plus-size pregnant employee after she posted some steamy body-positive pictures on social media.
A couple from Overton, Texas named Stephanie and Arynn preferred to keep their surnames private, they had decided to have a photo shoot in order to announce their engagement.
The couple went for a sensual outdoor photo shoot, the couple decided to go topless. They opt to go topless for the steamy river shoot, Arynn was in his jeans while Stephanie wore a bikini bottom for the shoot.
The pictures shot by Wolf & Rose Photography, the pictures received lots of feedback after posting on the photographer’s Facebook page.
The pictures received more than 66,000 reactions on Facebook and the comment section are filled with thousands of positive comments like:
“I absolutely love these. I wish I had the confidence to get something like this done”
“I love these pictures and this couple. OUTSTANDING!!!!!”
“These are absolutely beautiful photos. Captures the love shared between them in every shot. Stunning”
“Absolutely breathtaking beautiful pictures!! I want love like these two share… you can truly see that through their eyes as they look at each other”
Stephanie told HuffPost regarding the shoot, “I honestly have never felt more attractive.” She said, “I was so nervous to see the final result. I didn’t know what to expect. But when I saw the album, I was shocked. I look so in love and confident. Every person should be able to see themselves in that light. It is really eye-opening.”
The couple’s photoshoot pictures received highly positive response from their friends and Facebook but Stephanie’s work place, Austin Bank Texas, wasn’t happy with the photoshoot.
Stephanie told BuzzFeed, “They said I was topless, and it was inappropriate and we’re a family-oriented company.”
She said, “There was no defending myself, they had made their decision.” She added, “I gave over a year to a company that I worked really hard for and then to have them turn on me for doing something so positive, something that I was so proud of — to help myself as a woman — it was hurtful. People were pulling out their phones at work and showing the pictures and that was blamed on me.”
Eventually, the company decided to terminate Stephanie due to steamy body-positive shots on social media.
