The Truth in You: Blake… by Emilie Iggiotti
Where do I start with this woman… there are so many things to say, and at the same time, I think the photos will talk by themselves.
Blake is a photographer and a mental health advocate. She is the creator of We All Believe in You! Many people in Edmonton know Blake. You don’t even need to mention her last name. She is so dedicated to being a voice for mental health, her fierceness and courage are beautiful to watch.
I was very honoured when she asked me to do a Truth in You session with me. I know it’s hard for her to step in front of the camera. However, I am glad she did it, and this is probably one of my favourite sessions.
Many people told me that when they saw those images of Blake, they felt like it was really “her”. This is the best compliment.
