You are Art.
Some people break plates. Some people scream into a pillow. Some jump into the water and become mythical creatures. Some wander into the woods and get naked with nature. Sometimes, it just needs to get out.
Whatever the It, the need is the same. It's a kettle that's whistling. It's a well that's overflowing. It's a voice inside that's quiet, but needs to scream. Just once. Just so you can hear it and remember who you are.
I know, because this is how I feel, too. It's the answer to why I take my camera into the woods and lean into trees, or stretch across boulders, or curl into crevices. It seems a little crazy. But there's a release you get when you let go of your fear and allow yourself permission to fully trust the ride. Something deeply rewarding. Something freeing. Something that transforms you.
I want to give you more than a photoshoot. I want to give you an experience. I want you to embrace yourself, to be bold and dare to see yourself the way that I do - as something fragile but strong, brave and beautiful. Resilient. Radiant.
You are a masterpiece. Right now. And you don't need experience. You don't need to know the moves or have the costumes or props and you don't need to travel to the seven natural wonders. Right here, right now, you are enough. All you have to do is believe it. Are you ready?
LOOK. I GET IT.
I know magazine covers and social media influencers tell us every day who deserves to love themselves. Sometimes looking in the mirror and being kind to what we see is an act of radical acceptance. Some days are easier than others. All around us, there are reasons to believe that we're not worthy. Not yet. Not until we lose the weight, or get the skin tucked. Once we've got the clothes, or the career. Sometimes, society tells us it's too late, and our moment has already passed us by.
Those are hard messages to ignore. It takes courage.
Maybe you've wanted to be a part of something like this and felt like you didn't have enough experience or confidence.
I'm here to tell you, you do. I promise. Over the years, I've helped countless clients through their first ever modeling experience. I've heard the words, "I don't what I'm doing" and "I'm bad at this" more times than I can count. There's nothing more rewarding than when someone takes that step, puts themselves out there and does something boldly creative, despite their fear. There's no greater fulfillment, as a photographer, than helping others liberate themselves and see something beautiful and so much deeper than skin.
I truly love what I do. I can't wait to share this experience with you!
