Ever since I was a little girl I knew I had a mission. Rooted deep within was this knowing that I was here to help celebrate women. To show them & the world how beautiful they are. You see, I have a gift, I have the ability to see people, like really see them. I see beyond the exterior, beyond the limiting beliefs, doubts, and fears. I see them for who they truly are & I'm able to reflect that back in an image.
It started when I was a little girl growing up in a small Midwest town. I was around four or five years old (or so my mom tells me) and I tried taking my dad's deck of "nudie cards" that he got in Vietnam to school with me for show and tell. When my mom busted me I told her...
"I'm just trying to show everyone the pretty ladies!"
Fast forward to college, I did my entire senior show based on a project I called "The Beauty of Women" [shown left]. I photographed over 50 women, ages 18-80 years old using a polaroid transfer process, much like the women each one original, each one unique. My project showcased the beauty within women of all different shapes, sizes, backgrounds & upbringings, the yummy stuff that makes us who we are. Each unique, each beautiful in our own way. I thought eventually I'd create a book and tell the stories of these women, I haven't yet… but celebrating women never left me.
In 2007, I started my photography business & I began celebrating women through boudoir to heal my own body image issues. Photographing them helped me heal and fast forward to present day, I've come full circle and I've combined over a decade of experience photographing women, my background as a graphic designer & stylist together with my coaching & intuitive skills to help women celebrate themselves... The format has changed a bit over the years but throughout my entire life I've been on a mission to celebrate and share "The Beauty of Women" with the world.
