embodiment (n.): a tangible or visible form of an idea, quality, or feeling. the representation or expression of something in a tangible or visible form.
Since my journey as a photographer first began in my late teens, I have worked with women one-on-one to empower them through creative and honest portraiture. This work is very dear to my heart and my own embodied self-portraits have helped transform me in profound ways, which is why I offer these sessions. Women are so often photographed in relation to others; as fiancées, wives, and mothers. These facets of our identities can hold so much love & beauty, but a woman's personal journey often extends beyond these roles, while other women simply don't belong to any of those categories. Whether joyous or sorrowful, or more commonly a bittersweet mix of both, I believe that all stages of life and growth are worth honoring honestly, as there is much strength to be found in vulnerability. Being photographed alone allows a woman the opportunity to honor and explore herself; to create a visual embodiment of the complex, glorious creature she is; to celebrate those often unseen & unsung triumphs that she holds deep in her heart.
