Body Positive Photo Session

In Art, art portraiture, body positive, Photography, Portrait, self care, Uncategorized on December 2, 2017 at 2:05 PM

I got to do a very inspiring photo-shoot recently. A woman contacted me about putting together a “Body Positive” session.  She’s given me permission to share the images from our time together – and here are just a few.

Over the past few years her body has changed a lot. She’s had a baby, experienced lots of other life challenges and her perspective on what is sexy and what she values in the world has shifted…along with clothing size, stretch marks, etc.

One goal of the photo shoot was to claim that who she is now is just as valuable, sexy and powerful as the person she was as a “size two”. We HIGHLIGHTED stretch marks because they are a proud sign that she grew the love of her life in her body. They are not something she felt ashamed of – and to witness this was beautiful.

It makes me sad when I photograph people who put themselves down throughout their entire session. I understand it – but it also makes me mad when I see a stunning soul standing before me, tearing themselves to pieces because they are not physically flawless.

To define ourselves by a false definition of beauty that is endlessly marketed to us by companies who want to make us feel bad about ourselves in order to sell their newest product is disheartening. And to have someone stand before me, with confidence in and love for themselves was really kick ass.

 

If you’re on a courageous journey of learning to love and accept yourself as is – documenting the moment with photographs may be a powerful elixir.  I’d love to do more empowerment sessions like this…maybe with you.

New Studio Location

I’m excited to announce that I have a place to shoot studio lit head shots and portraits again!! I love natural light photos as well – and have enjoyed shooting on location while in transition …. and, as the weather is about to get colder and the days shorter, it’s so great to have the option to shoot indoors again. I look forward to working with you soon.

Changing Sleep Patterns

In Essential Oil, Massage, self care, Uncategorized on September 22, 2017 at 2:02 PM

Fall is here. With that comes shifting schedules and potentially interrupted sleep patterns. Kids have to change their nightly routines in order to get up for school on time and our natural rhythms get messed with as daylight grows shorter and the time clocks change.

An easy self-care tool to support your sleep during all this change is to use high quality, pure essential oils.

A popular oil for relaxation is Lavender. [ Don’t get Lavender, Spike – as that is stimulating]

Here are a few ways to incorporate lavender into a nightly, calming routine:

1. Use an aromatherapy diffuser. Add approximately 3-5 drops of pure essential oil per 100 ml of water. You can start the diffuser 30 minutes before bed time to get the scent in the room, and then let it run all night.

2. Make your own linen spray. Add about 20 drops of lavender essential oil to one ounce of distilled water in a spray bottle. Shake well – and spray before bed. Add or remove the amount of essential oil based on your ‘scent preference’.

3. Give yourself a light massage by incorporating the lavender essential oil into a carrier oil such as jojoba or sweet almond oil. Add 15 drops of essential oil per ounce of carrier oil for a 2.5% dilution and massage into your feet, temples and pulse points.

My personal favorite is the diffuser method. It not only lulls me into a deeper state of relaxation … it also makes the whole room smell great.

Let me know if you try any of these and what your experience is like.

Have fun!

P.S. – Massage is another great way to help you relax. You can book your next appointment online by going HERE.
