It’s hard to fit into a box when you don’t know where you belong. Because of this, I created “The Truth in You,” a lifestyle session designed for women. You don’t have to be on the cusp of a “major moment” like engagement, marriage, pregnancy, or birth to celebrate yourself. If you’re like me, you’re tired of the world telling you how you should be, how you should look, and how you should present yourself to the world – it’s a heartless world, a ruthless world, and I want to change it.
The older I get, the more I find myself rejecting society’s representation of beauty in favour of the quiet, unassuming, confident, and profound beauty of a woman who’s truly lived, who’s abandoned the unattainable quest for perfection and surrenders to the joyful beauty that comes with each different age, stage, and experience.
I’m drawn to the lines that hint at the endless intensity of emotions an older woman has endured, the weathering of her skin, the vast and deep knowing in her eyes.
I’m struck by the softness that reminds us of our mothers, the curves, the fulness, the sheer womanliness of our natural bodies.
I’m fascinated by the scars that give an inkling of the burdens, the hardships, we’ve borne in our journey to now.
I’m enraptured by the subtle movements, the idiosyncrasies, the mannerisms that belong to you, that you inherited from your mother and your grandmother – your family legacies living within you.
I’m enchanted by your slightly crooked teeth, your archless brows, your frizzy hair, and your big thighs – where you see fault, I see beauty and I will show it to you.
These sessions are born out of solidarity and love for women. I want to change the way you see yourself by allowing you to see yourself through my eyes. After your session, I will leave you with a sense of relief – not anxiety – relief and elation at finally showing the world who you really are, that unbelievably beautiful you that’s been hiding. Through attentiveness, sincerity, and generosity, I connect with you and I photograph you. In this session, I give as much as you do, we work together, collaboratively, to uncover the truth in you.
Send me a note to book your session today, I can’t wait to meet you.
