Dancing and zhoozhing her way to magic.

Dancing and zhoozhing her way to magic.

When I spoke to her weeks ago, she said, "I only want to work with YOU and I cannot wait to do it!" And then she promptly booked and made plans to travel to Atlanta for her photo shoot. Judy Martin Brinkman -- I was so honored to capture your laughter and joy -- you are amazing!!

And what fun we had together! I was sure I'd get smacked down after the dancing and the zhoozhing and so much more! BUT here is what happens when we do all that -- MAGIC!!

I am learning that helping women get OUT of their bodies through movement and laughter, actually allows them to FEEL into their bodies and the shine comes through!!

Adventures are necessary.

Adventures are necessary.

Ya’all, I went to COWGIRL CAMP recently! It brought back all the awesome memories of my younger days when I used to go set up a tent, make fires and get back to nature in a deep and reconnective way.

This time was no different really even though it was done many, many years later! It was a total badass advenutre! One that I am so grateful I decided to go on for myself! 

I drove to Kentucky last week to spend the weekend at Cowgirl Camp at Little Wing Hollow. It was started by Anessa Arehart as her dream has been to connect women organically and to create experiences during the weekend which will do the same. We had everything from a Birding class to Crystals class to live music each evening under the sunset and stars.

Showing Up for Yourself

Showing Up for Yourself

I am letting you in on one of my secret pleasures – a bit of hip-hop and ‘70s music – totally dance-worthy and self-care worthy! The songs take me to a place where I don’t have to think for a while! Having fun, dancing, and singing out loud when no one is watching helps you shed the vulnerability in real life. It allows you to be yourself without apologizing for any of your quirks. AND it is just plain FUN!

My ‘Freedom Tour’ . . . all about receiving!

My ‘Freedom Tour’ . . . all about receiving!

I realized today that it was ok to celebrate me and that it was time to receive all that was given yesterday. From wanting to cancel the party earlier in the week to making it happen in less than 48 hours and knowing that I had a connection of some sort with each person who was there to celebrate with me, was such a magical experience that I wouldn’t trade for anything!

Celebrating My Mom's Legacy

Celebrating My Mom's Legacy

I love telling this story because on the days that I’m exhausted and think about all the work it takes to be an entrepreneur and a strong woman, I look to her and see my role model.

The woman who after her second stroke, who had lost her speech, but not her spirit, who pushed me out the door when I didn’t think I could do this thing anymore and said in her limited ability, “GO!!! To your meeting. Go!”

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!

This is why I come from New York . . . to work with you!

The next thing I hear is Karmen running towards me and yelling “OH MY GAWDDDD!!!! THIS is why I come from New York to work with you!!! YOU are the ONLY one who can get me out of my skin, dancing, being silly and allow me to SHOW UP as I am!! I wouldn’t do this for anyone else … just for YOU Rupa!!”

Owning Her Own Light | Janet

Owning Her Own Light | Janet

Meet my dear friend and badass musician and entrepreneur, Janet Feld.

It was such an honor to photograph her when we were in Asheville recently. This woman who I have watched over the years, grow into the confident and successful business woman that I now know is inspiring and kind and a lot of fun!

I first met Janet through our business coaching circle, Uplevel You. She was one of the first women who responded to me when I posted on the private FB page to see if any women wanted to join me for dinner the first night of our business retreat. Mind you, I did not know a SOUL and was just jumping in for some crazy, amazing reason!

Empowered. Bold. Inspired.

Empowered. Bold. Inspired.

I met Darshana in 2017 as I was searching for peace and so desperately trying to get my intuition back! I know that sounds weird, but there so many parts of me that just thought I had “lost it” somwhere in the abyss that was my life at that point in time.

After my first session with her (I referred to her as a f’n wizard of magic!!) where she used deep Reiki and energy healing techniques with me, I honestly felt like I had resurfaced. I started manifesting my intentions and my body was feeling in alignment again for the first time in ages!
