I want more.

I want more.

Travel is lighting me up each time I do it. And I want more.

I’ve enjoyed myself for the past few weeks and feel like I am just now coming off the Boston high. It was a lot of fun! I had set an intention a few years ago that I wanted to be able to go on a trip at least once a year with my kids and treat them to a few days and have a blast. And, I accomplished that this year!

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!!

Do you give yourself permission to recharge?

Do you give yourself permission to recharge?

Do you look at this time of year as the time to ‘go, go, go’?! Or do you give yourself permission to slow down and recharge?

I’ve always felt like all the marketing for this time of year is all about planning big for the New Year and spending money on gifts and dinners and stuff that we really don’t hold any value on later and it was exhausting to be in that energy space.

So a few years ago, I made a conscious decision to walk away from that energy and…

Transformation: It's an inside job

Transformation: It's an inside job

You know by now that I LOVe watching women show up and feel beautiful and confident in their skin! It is so much of what I do as a photographer and you would think that after all the women that I have worked with, that it would be something I do for myself as well right?

And, to be honest, it is now finally something I have gotten better at -- I mean it only took 20+ years for me to get there! :) And it is a constant practice that requires patience and diligence and habit. It is a way of living for my physical body to be well and also for my mindset to stay strong.

But for a LONG time, I wasn’t exactly walking the talk and it occurred to me every time I would meet with a client.  You see, back in the day…

Tell Your Mean Girl to STFU

Tell Your Mean Girl to STFU

Every time I meet a woman for a photo shoot, the first thing I hear from her is a list of what is “wrong” with her.

Have you noticed that “ego feed” that pops into your brain throughout the day? That mean girl voice that show up on most days and that voices things that you would never say to anyone else?

Well, I would hear that all the time. The more I heard these unkind words of self-loathing, the more I would remember feeling that way about myself. It was like looking into a mirror, and it just made me sad.

And then the dream became real.

 And then the dream became real.

You know the one thing that you really want to do and it sits deep down inside of you and you always think about it but (at least for me), can’t get yourself to move forward on? Or you think others will judge you on so you ignore the nudges.

I had that “thing” for many, many years. Always wondered. Always doubted (myself). Always would dream about if I could make real “artwork”.

That dream for me had always been to photograph nudes.

I almost feel silly saying that out loud. It makes me feel super vulnerable and judged.
