  • Happy Friday friends!⁠⠀
Beautiful Christy✨
This session was more than fun, as you can probably tell from this image!
Portrait sessions are not only for head shots.  Portrait sessions can, and will, rejuvenate you and help you rediscover sides of yourself that you may have not seen in a while. ⁠⠀
We will celebrate YOU.⁠⠀
You will be pampered with professional hair & make up, I will guide you with what to wear, and pose you EVERY single minute of your session.  Your only job is to show up and have some fun!⁠⠀
If you'd like more info about a portrait session, message me & let's chat!⁠⠀

  • You may remember beautiful Francine from her session a few months ago, she was in the studio to update her author headshots & personal branding.  Francine shared VERY exciting news yesterday,  that her latest book titled Lightly has landed on the Amazon and Audible best seller lists!! A dream come true for Francine, to be listed next to @michelleobama ! 
The publisher loved Francine’s headshots so much , that they put this one here on the back cover✨
Oh, and did I mention Lightly is also on shelves at Target?! Exciting stuff.
Congratulations Francine, and thanks for choosing me⭐️

  • One of the biggest perks of what I do is meeting so many amazing women, and ultimately becoming friends and supporters of each other✨⁠⠀
I adore my friend & bada$$ #ladyboss Laurie, who will be back in the studio in October for our 5th shoot together! (This image circa 2015)⁠⠀ Laurie is genuine & kind, keeps me laughing, and is a dream to photograph.  We may even include one of her fur babies this next time!⁠⠀
