Taryn’s message has reached over 100 million people worldwide via social media and has seen her interviewed by Good Morning America, 60 Minutes and The Today Show and featured of the cover of Women’s Health and Fitness.
Despite being happily married, and successfully juggling motherhood with running a thriving photography business, Taryn Brumfitt was privately struggling with crippling body image issues. Close to resorting to plastic surgery to ‘fix’ her post-childbirth body, Taryn decided that what she really needed to change was not in fact her body, it was her attitude towards it.
