I had the most wonderful time shooting with Lavinia for a half day up in her gorgeous home in Malibu. Lavinia needed some new shots for her website as well as social media and headshots. She is on a mission to help people lead more fulfilled, balanced, and joyful lives. She certainly walks her talk! We spent the day cruising around her amazing home and the surrounding area. Everything about Lavinia seems mindful and on purpose. She emanates grace, strength and warmth, and I felt immediately welcome and at ease around her. I am so grateful to meet strong women like Lavinia who are out in the world using their gifts and strengths to empower others! What an inspiration!
Sarah wanted a variety of images to serve multiple purposes from business to personal. We started with some more conservative business headshots, and then ended our 2 hour session with fun personal portraits. Sarah was the best sport, and we had a blast together finding cool spots to shoot in Marina Del Rey! She ended up with so many wonderful and varied images for her to choose from (I told her she should be a model)! Here are a few of my faves from the day.
I honestly don’t even know where to begin with the amazing experience of working with Tabby. She is not only my business coach, but I have participated in her wonderful Women on The TEDx Stage class twice! She is a force to be reckoned with and wields her wisdom, grace and strength as magical superpowers as she empowers women to stand up and find their voice! She is also one of the creators of 50 Women Can , a leadership program for women focusing on gender parity in Hollywood.
I could go on and on about her accolades, but what I love most about Tabby is her peaceful confidence, and the way that she can instill the same in anyone around her. She can fill a room with her light, and in doing so she lifts other women up into their own light. She is so inspiring to me and so many others! When she asked me to work with her to capture some images to support her mission, I was so honored. In this session, we focused on the side of Tabby that is a business coach, speaker and leader. Stay tuned for the second session which will capture a whole other side of this luminous woman. I love personal branding portrait sessions like this, because we can co-create an experience that captures every nuance needed to support a woman and her unique brand or goal!
I am so grateful for Tabby, and for the work we do together, and most especially for our blossoming friendship! Thank you Tabby!
All of these ladies are powerhouses in their fields! I captured these portraits in a group session which left us all enriched and happy and with a belly ache from laughing!!
As you can see, Robyn is a beauty! I had the honor of shooting her wedding a while back, and was thrilled when she hired me to do a portrait session honoring the start of her new career in real estate!
Andrea started Take A Smart Step in 2007, to (in her words)," to educate people about money and to help them make the world a better place". She is smart, funny and compassionate and I loved working with her. Our portrait session was so much fun, and reminded me once again why I love what I do. Getting to connect with entrepreneurs like Andrea is so inspiring!
I love this woman! She is a bright and shining example of living your truth and being fully in your body! She is a psychotherapist and an artist...you can check out her website HERE. She is also an amazing teacher and now trainer of the NIA technique, which is a sensory-based movement practice that draws from martial arts, dance arts and healing arts. It empowers people of all shapes and sizes by connecting the body, mind, emotions and spirit. Jule will inspire you to move and shake and relate to yourself in a whole new way. She teaches classes at Move Studio in Dallas and does NIA trainings worldwide. I am so blessed to have her as a friend and fellow traveler on this amazing creative journey oflife! We did a head shot session in my studio with lights and the whole shebang. I don't normally do this, but she needed some specific images, so we went for it. I of course had to have fun with the whole thing given that shooting with lightsmakes me feel all boxed in and freaked out. I made sure to sneak some great shots of her laughing and being silly in between our "serious" shots! She is a beautiful soul! see what I mean............
