"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 extra gray hairs, 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. But, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder in front of the mirror every morning.
Over the past decade, I have concentrated on portraying women the way we want to be portrayed, but we are often afraid to allow ourselves. We are all capable of feeling like a Cover Girl on the pages of our favorite magazine, if we allow it. We are often so busy beingwives, mothers, PTA chairwomen, carpool organizers, costume makers, family nutritionists, problem-solver and "boo-boo" kissers that we forget to allow ourselves to women. I am not just in the business of making portraits, I am also here to remind you how important you are.
My husband always says, "Honey, what we are doing is the closest we will ever get to a time machine." One day, your portrait will be the most important thing your loved one may ever own. I have a story to tell about that very detail. When we speak, I will be happy to tell you all about it. Until then, I want you to know I take creating your portrait very personally. It is an absolute honor to tell your story and to be able to provide you and your family with a custom portrait you will cherish for generations to come.
I look forward to hearing from you.
With love and respect,
