Ya' ready? Here I go again...

Ya' ready? Here I go again...

What a busy week it has been! I just had my very last photo shoot at my Goat Farm studio and it was bittersweet. I’m going to miss this place! We’ve had some seriously magical and transformative moments throughout the years here. Six years this October I took the risk to get that studio — cleaned it up, had an open house, and got a few renters so I could sustain if needed and I did it!

And so here I go again — in more than one way! I have recently gotten a new studio (next week I’ll take ya’all through some behind the scenes moments with the move … a little scary with new changes but FUN!) because the Goat Farm is going to go under redevelopment and we can’t be there after the fall AND I am making regular trips to Asheville as you guys have noticed!

I know, I know, I might as well just move to Asheville already! And MANY of you actually texted and called me to tell me that last time I got back in March! Evidently, I always say, and have been saying for the past 5 or 6 years now every time I return, “I so want to live in Asheville — maybe one day I will.”

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

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!!”

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.

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!

While the cat's away...

Hey everyone! Caitlin, here. Rupa’s trusty assistant and right hand girl (behind the scenes!). See what I do here.

With Rupa busy in Asheville all week, I figured I would take over this week’s blog post. She’s driving back to Atlanta but every. single. time she goes to Asheville, she says it’s on the “possibly move to” list, so we’ll see how long it is until she doesn’t head back to Atlanta. I’m in Massachusetts so it all sounds good to me at this point!

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!

Grace, Love & Attention

Grace, Love & Attention

This morning I had a cup of coffee with a very good friend of mine shortly after texting my coach about how I so wanted and needed and was ready to shift out of my old paradigm… I am so done with it!

During the coffee, Melinda and I talked about how I felt so “stuck” in my business ... just chasing money and goals (which I totally understand are necessary and yet when out of alignment, they don’t come out without it all feeling so uphill!) and it all felt out of whack. It wasn’t like I didn’t like what I do.. I love it! It felt like doing it w heart wasn’t coming to fruition lately.

A RENEWED CONFIDENCE, SWAGGER AND SMILE

A RENEWED CONFIDENCE, SWAGGER AND SMILE

Have I told you lately how much I LOVE working with my badass entrepreneurial women!!!?? Their stories inspire me and I am grateful for their own vulnerabilities they show every day! I met Lisa years ago when I needed a new stylist and I've been with her ever since! She's no stranger to my journey and I'm in awe of hers!

At my first hair appointment, I told her I wanted my haircut just like hers. She begins to tell me that that was not her own hair and proceeds to pull off a hair topper to show me what she wears every day due to her hair loss. In that moment, I knew she was a total badass and I was in love!

The Power of a Single Bloom

The Power of a Single Bloom

Today I was loving on my orchid that I never thought would come back to life and smiled because it is blooming so naturally and beautifully.

And as I admired it more, I realized that in the past day or two, that I, too, am that orchid as I have gone through my own blooming phase slowly and then suddenly.

Meditation and deep work on self compassion and trust and embracing a new future that is full of exponential potential instead of allowing the past to interrupt my new road along with powerful and thoughtful conversations recently have allowed me to realize that I need to honor voice again.

This voice is three-fold ...
