Massage or Photography

In Art, art portraiture, Head Shot, Massage, Photography, Portrait, Uncategorized on June 4, 2016 at 9:25 AM

Clients often ask me what I enjoy doing more, Massage Therapy or Photography.  The answer? They both energize me in different ways and have more in common than you’d think. In both spaces I’m working with people and quite often, their insecurities.  There’s a lot of ‘space holding’ involved. Ensuring that no matter what type of work we’re doing the person feels safe, respected and witnessed. In both professions I get to meet fun, interesting people and always have the goal of having them leave me feeling better [about them selves] then before we met.

Last week I got to do a head shot for a gentleman who is training for an Iron Man competition [wow]!

Yesterday I had just enough time between massage clients to play with some photography techniques for a photo group I recently joined. Our prompt for this week was that the image had to be “artistic and red”. I played around with studio lighting, no lighting at all, long exposure, having a fan blow on the flower petals, etc … and choose this as the image to share with the group.

Then I had a massage client who had a major shift in her body during our session. No matter what’s going on in the studio it’s always about creativity, growth and supporting people in living their best life and I’m so grateful for each connection, no matter how it’s made.

It snowed today! April 16th. What? I clearly have not been watching the news because I was stunned to wake up to find white stuff stuck to the windshield of my car. Just a few days ago someone gave me a beautiful bouquet of yellow tulips – because it’s Spring. This afternoon I set out to photograph them in all their cheeriness and for some reason the black and white is what spoke to me. Cheers!

The Open House on Saturday was a great success!! Once the guests arrived I was so engaged with interacting with everyone that I neglected to take any pictures, but there are a few detail shots here. It was  fun to meet new people and I’m so grateful for the love and support from so many friends and family members.

There were lots of flowers everywhere and these were my favorite. I’ve spent this rainy Monday morning playing around with a few photographs, making homemade bread AND drawing the winners of the raffle prizes…

I’ll be mailing the gifts out this week and can’t wait for the winners to come in and use them.

Drum roll …. winner of the 10 minute hand massage is Karin G from Manchester; winner of the 30 minute Swedish massage is Ann A from Glastonbury; and winner of the 20% off coupon is Carey P from Vernon!! Yay!

For everyone else who came please remember that your gift for signing up for the mailing list, $20 off a 30 minute massage is valid only for June and July 2013 – so call to book your spot now. If you weren’t able to make it Saturday you can still take advantage of the $15 off 30 or 60 minute therapeutic massage special rolled over from May.  Looking forward to seeing you!!
