Using Portraits to Inspire Self Confidence

August 23, 2017 • Body Image, Inspiration, Recovery • Views: 1454

I have more than 10 years experience as a photographer, using portrait sessions to make my clients look and feel their most beautiful. I encourage people to celebrate their lives, where they are now, and what it took to get there. When a client comes for a portrait session, the resulting photographs are for them and for the people who love them.

I believe that portrait experiences help you reconnect with yourself. It’s my job to capture your beauty, and show it back to you. All the years of telling yourself you aren’t good enough or pretty enough, struggling with self doubt and insecurities… I’m here to tell you that you are enough! And you DESERVE to have beautiful portraits that will be passed down for generations to come.


I want to us my gifts and abilities to uplift and encourage others. There is so much beauty in the world that I see. I so enjoy transforming the lives of those I photograph by showing them and saying to them:

  • You are enough.
  • You are loved and worth of love.
  • You were created beautifully in God’s image.
  • Your story matters.
  • Your story can help others.

I want to not only collect beautifully portraits, but stories of lives well lived. The stories of how men and women were transformed to see themselves for the first time how they truly are… beautiful. So much self-hate is taught from a young age. That we’ll never be enough. That we need the approval of others. I want to create more meaning than a social media like, but something of substance where someone chose to celebrate her accomplishments and do something for herself. To get a portrait taken for the ones you love is so powerful, and can greatly aid in recovery from body image issues, eating disorders and other addictions if you have struggled.

Our stories are unique to us and deserve to be celebrated. Your recovery is unique and you have worked hard to achieve health and stability in your life. That deserves to be celebrated in photographs. Your story deserves to be told. In doing this, you can inspire people around you and transform other lives.
