"The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides." - Audrey Hepburn.
I am a woman, just like you and I am in my mid 40's. I have a few smile lines, more than a few gray hairs from raising teenagers, a couple of extra pounds and hooded eye-lids. Why would I say this? Because, I have earned each and every one of them. I get it. I used to often be behind the camera more than I am in front of it.
Since 2009, I have concentrated on portraying women the way we want to be portrayed; however, many women are often afraid to allow themselves to desire feeling beautiful. There is some unwritten rule that once you are getting cereal on your shirt every morning burping your child, being the woman you are is unimportant. We are often so busy being wives, mothers, PTA chairwomen, carpool organizers, costume makers, family nutritionists, problem-solver and "boo-boo" kissers that we forget to allow ourselves to be women. By the time our children are heading off to school, we have a whole new set of priorities we did not believe included feeling beautiful. I don't know how many times I have peeked at the Juniors section, because the "Mature Women's" section of the department store did not appeal to my youthful inner self. We all do it.
It's a myth. There is so much more to being a woman than what we allow ourselves. We are all capable of feeling like a Cover Girl on the pages of our favorite magazine, if we allow it. We have all imagined a ourselves in some special way we have never allowed anyone else to see. I want to allow you to bring that vision to life. I want for you the most beautiful portrait you have ever seen of yourself that is full of genuine connection.
