Beautiful, Powerful, and Loved - Audrey

When I asked Audrey WHY she was choosing to do this photo shoot NOW...her response blew me away. You can imagine how my heart stopped when I read that, can't you? Creating not only a legacy she is proud to call as her own but to give her a platform to STEP INTO BEING HER MOST POWERFUL, AND AMAZING SELF and have tangible evidence in front of her from now on, until well past her dying days that SHE EXISTS/ED. Yes!!!!! (Insert all the hallelujahs, amens, and hands to the sky here please)

Three Generations for a Family Photo Shoot

In April, Ace called me about photographing her daughters and mother-in-law for Mother's Day. She wanted a wonderful gift for her husband's mom to celebrate HER. I was over-the-moon!!! These three generations photo shoots speak to every fiber of my purpose in business; creating a legacy. What a wonderful day.
