It was groundhog day yesterday and Alberta’s Balzac Billy has predicted an early spring!
I am entering a new season in my photographic journey as well. It started with the opening of my Portrait Studio in Comox. There is nothing more exhilarating than taking a step toward a goal that has been on my mind for a very long time. It is the beginning of a new phase in my life and it is exciting and scary all at once.
One of the first clients that came through my door asked if I would help her express herself through a portrait session. She told me her life coach recommended it as a way of reconnecting and exploring her feminine side. It is a new season in her life as well. We had a great time, she started off as a bundle of nerves in formal dress with hair and make-up done and as the session progressed the hair came down and formal dress was traded for a tutu and we explored many emotions along the way. Some of her images you’ll see with this post.
A week later another woman came with a similar request and I realized how much more there is to photography than a beautiful portrait on the wall. Yes, it can be as simple as a way to document one’s life but it can also be a journey of its own and within that, it becomes a tool of empowerment. I know that these women are not alone and my heart reaches out to them, to you, to know that you can be awed by your self, you just need to take that first step!
It’s easy to lose pieces of ourselves over time, to lose the woman we may have once been. We are all exquisite creations and I want you to see yourself as a work of art. You are perfect right now, just as you are and trust me, there has never been a more perfect time to let your inner light shine.
I invite you to a personal portrait session with me and I promise I will help you find and connect with YOU again.
