The Creative Process | The making of an image

March 21, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Sometimes as an artist, a photo shoot needs to be about creating something just for you. I've had a fascination with wings for a long time. This video shows the creation of the wings, then there's an image created from them below. The beauty of this setup is that I can make an infinite amount of looks with these wings, below is just the first. It's a bit of a departure from my usual work, but then we all must spread our wings a little to grow. I hope you enjoy it!

This sweet lady is Cindy. We get along so well because we have similar goals for the people we work with in our businesses. She partners with people to help them transform by creating optimal wellbeing through lifestyle. I help my clients feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera so that their true self shines through in their personal branding images. If either of those things sound like things you identify with, maybe we could help you too! Please get in touch to learn more. 



Ovarian Cancer Survivors Makeover Transformations | Fun Day Out |

August 28, 2016  •  1 Comment

These six lovely Ovarian Cancer Survivors came to the studio to have a photo shoot. Cancer can strip you of a lot of things, and sometimes as a woman, it may take from you that person you used to be. The one who was carefree, lighthearted, and felt beautiful while she was out and about in the world. We wanted to connect these ladies to that feeling again. I hope you will watch and share as there are many other ladies out there in the world that may be feeling down, not feeling pretty, and we want to show them that beauty that they might have lost touch with. These transformations are a little on the outside sure, but when you look at an image of yourself and see that beauty that others see you, sometimes that transformation happens on the inside too. Because you feel you've lost that piece of yourself to cancer, age, or just plain life. We want all women to feel the way we believe these women did after their photo shoot, watch and see, and if you know someone that needs this, please reach out.

I was so excited to have the ladies in the studio today for the reveal of the Ovarian Cancer Awareness Video they all participated in! Here's a group shot that I also made of all the ladies that were featured. None of the ladies were photographed together, but we wanted to see them as a group, so using my "very particular set of skills" I was able to put them together later! How did I do?!

STAY TUNED- Videos to follow in the next few days! You can also subscribe to the RSS feed at the bottom to be notified of new posts here.

And here's a behind the scenes of the ladies watching the videos today. They may or may not have used up all my Kleenex!
