“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief she is beautiful.” -Sophia Loren
Their eyes twinkled as they surveyed the colorful wears strewn across the table. It may have been a first that thirteen little girls from 3 – 7 sat so attentively that you could hear a pin drop. They were given brief instructions and just one rule; have fun! Their excitement was palatable as their anxious Mom’s waited in the wings.
Eleven brave women dressed in the outfits their daughters picked out volunteered to be the blank canvases for their offspring. At the outset this isn’t unusual or even interesting until you add in colourful and shimmery palettes of make-up that were lovingly applied with the skill and creative flair that can only from those that are so young and innocent. This wasn’t about perfection or even a decent make-up application, this day was about mirroring the children’s belief that their Mom’s the most beautiful woman in the world back to her in the biggest and brightest way possible.
The expectations women put on themselves to be perfect along with society’s portrayal of beauty can be unrealistic. I want to change that. It’s my dream for women to believe that beauty has absolutely nothing to do with what you see and everything to do with what you feel.
When we can’t even delight in our own appearance it affects our relationships, success, health and even wealth. I think we should all learn from children, whether they’re our own or in general. They don’t fear, judge, analyze the way they look. When you tell them they’re beautiful they believe you 100%. So why is it as we get older we lose this ability?
I want to give you the opportunity to face your fears with an open mind and heart. To once again feel inside and out you’re beautiful and absolutely perfect just as you are. What are you waiting for? I’ve helped many others through photography and I can help you. Start your new year with a new perspective! Want more information?

Thanks again to the beautiful and BRAVE women who inspired me. It was empowering watching these incredible ladies let go of control and stand in front of the camera after their daughters unleashed their creative wiles on their mother’s faces. Absolutely beautiful!
