ALWAYS A REBEL.

ALWAYS A REBEL.

In my line of work, I meet some of the most badass women - women who don’t censor themselves in their personal or professional lives and I have to say, it’s pretty damn refreshing. Today I want you to meet Lisa.

Learning to F.L.Y.

Learning to F.L.Y.

I found a video as I was cleaning out tons of stuff and it made me smile! It was so weird seeing myself laugh and smile and be happy after so long of not! The night we shot it, I cried because I hadn’t seen myself in that space for so very long and I couldn’t believe that it was actually me!

And today, just a few months later, the two words that came to mind as I watched it again, this time with a smile on my face, were: sexy and fierce.

I won’t lie. Sexy had always felt like something or someone I had to be for another person. I think this was my wiring growing up. And then as I started owning who I was and started loving myself more fiercely, like true self compassion and finding voice without apology, this new way of being felt super sexy.

Destination: Pleasure.

Destination: Pleasure.

Last weekend, I was told to go find pleasure to add to my day…

So I did just that. I put the top down, grabbed a coffee, and decided I’d enjoy a drive with the wind in my hair and the sun on my shoulders and the music turned all the way up!

Destination…nowhere! Perfect!

And as I headed out on my ‘Destination Nowhere’ day out, little did I know that there actually was a destination up ahead (but more on that in a bit.), but what I did promise myself in that moment is that I would do it in a way so it all felt downstream.

The storm behind the magic.

The storm behind the magic.

Last Spring when I headed up to Asheville, I shared all of the fun stuff that happened behind the scenes. We did have a blast but what you all may not know is that before the magic happened, there was a bit of a storm that didn't seem to end until the night before the sessions started.

Between my little Bella having a seizure to the weather deciding it would be frigid beyond belief (it truly felt like it was -20!) to my makeup artist getting so sick she had to cancel two days before … I honestly felt broken. It was rough but, at the same time, I always feel like it is a bit of a test from the Universe for me on strength and resiliency! And I want to say that I think I’ve been passing each time!

Getting My Life Back

Getting My Life Back

Recently, I received the BEST news ever: "Your test results are gorgeous!"

I don't ever think I have heard a doc use those words when it comes to test results and as they relate to me and my body, and I totally teared up but was also very proud of how far I have come!

We celebrated how far I have come on this emotional and physical journey of mine and I think I may still need to truly celebrate because that is a thing that I am still learning to FEEL...not easy for me!

New Studio Vibes.

New Studio Vibes.

Got keys. Making new dreams happen. Terri-cited AF.

YA’ALL!!! I’M IN!! The new studio is ON and I’ve already done a session there and two more coming up this week! Here is a little sneak peek into the new space and some behind-the-scenes fun and craziness from the weekend we moved …with a few rain drenched selfies cause, of course, storms and tornadoes were in the forecast on the day of the move! Totally my life, so I just went with it!

I will tell you what though, this growth is bringing on some super emotional moments and days ... from working out of a tiny bedroom studio to a space gifted to me by an awesome rescue to the Goat Farm where I’ve had the most amazing memories and now to a gorgeous loft with a kitchen, bathroom and our own Reveal room, the memories have been flooding in!

Big Magic Outside the Studio

Big Magic Outside the Studio

So much fun. So much joy. But Let’s get to the heart of it shall we? The deeper, personal side of this story … it allowed me to see from the “outside in” and there were big epiphanies.
