"YOU'RE PERFECT THE WAY YOU ARE
AND PERFECT THE WAY YOU'RE NOT."

“I’M NOT PHOTOGENIC.”
“I DON’T HAVE ANYTHING TO WEAR.”
“I’LL COME BACK WHEN I LOSE WEIGHT.”
“JUST MY KIDS NOT ME.”

I use the same excuses too! Confidence is about liking ourselves regardless of our imperfections, which by the way is what makes us unique. It is what makes us aesthetically interesting to look at. Many well-known models have made fortunes with their non-conventional beauty. It’s about time we women embrace our exceptional qualities. We shouldn’t be afraid to let our hair down and express ourselves, so trust me to show you what others see.

I can do more with lighting and posing to create beautiful lines and angles with your face and body. You don't need an expensive gym membership to have beautiful portraits. This photo shoot experience is transformational and fun. Let’s throw fear out of our lives and allow ourselves to “exist in photos!” Our friends and family will be happy we did.     

 

I am here to make sure your needs are met. I want to empower you to fall in love with yourself again. I want you to value yourself and be kind to yourself because you really are perfect the way you are and perfect the way you’re not.
