Refreshingly real ladies.

Vancouver based photographer Mandy-Lyn may only be 24 years-old, but you won't find any immaturity in her stunning body of work. In fact, she's old school in the most badass way, using a '70s 35mm Canon camera given to her by her grandfather. Mandy-Lyn draws her inspiration from being a young woman and wants to throw back to the visual pornography of decades ago.

She features all nature girls, completely untouched in various conceptualized themes including sandy beach play-dates and bedroom strip downs. "In 1974, Hugh Hefner said, 'Women have traditionally been either put on pedestals or damned as the source of all sexual temptation and sin. These are two sides of the same coin, since both place women in a nonhuman role. Playboy has opposed these warped sexual values and, in so doing, helped women step down from their pedestals and enjoy their natural sexuality as much as men.' I couldn't express my intention more keenly than that; I'm just looking for a place where a woman's natural self is accepted as a woman's loveliest self," she tells Nerve.

Here's a look at some of the beautiful nude portraits by Mandy-Lyn.
