The theme of the shoot was “all about embracing your flaws,” she says.

A source reveals, “Amy does a lot of photo shoots but this one is especially close to her heart. She has always wanted to talk to young girls about accepting their bodies and not setting unrealistic standards of beauty. Keeping this in mind, Amy did this shoot for a digital magazine for Women’s Day (March 8), and though she has make-up on her face, Amy decided to go au naturel and flaunted her freckles in the close-up shot.”

Talking about it, Amy says, “I guess it is really important for girls to accept their body, their flaws, and feel beautiful about it. Nowadays, there is immense pressure around us to look a certain way and a lot of young girls are trying to achieve that. But, I feel we should not be a part of this. I am extremely glad and happy to do a shoot of this kind, and create awareness about this issue.”
