FOR A CHANGE?

HOW ABOUT SOME

My mission is to show you that you are a beautiful, dynamic, sexy woman. I am so tired of living in a world where women are made to feel like they are not enough – not thin enough, not sexy enough, not young enough, not pretty enough, not qualified enough, not tough enough and all around not good enough. Fuck that!

I am here to tell you and to show you that YOU ARE ENOUGH!

I'm changing the world, one woman at a time – with every single woman that I can help to stand in her power and know her worth, to know it in her bones that she is sexy and sensual and alive, to take no shit and go for what she wants.

Can a photo shoot really do all of that?! Hell yes!

The power of a photo shoot should not be underestimated. It takes vulnerability to get in front of the camera, whether you are in lingerie, a dress, or your bossest business wear. It takes strength to look at the resulting images with love and compassion for yourself when we are trained every day to find fault with ourselves. A photo shoot with a loving, skilled photographer can literally change your life and start a journey to true self love. And self love is the most important super power of all.

If you are ready to go there, I am ready to help you power up.

"I realized the last time I felt good and smart and sexy and powerful was when I was with Laura so I immediately sent her a message, and said, 'hey document this journey with me,'" Elaine remembered.

The two embarked on a series of photoshoots, the first... just after her diagnosis, another photoshoot during chemo when Elaine had lost all of her hair, and another photoshoot this month, just after Elaine completed two rounds of treatments.

"It has really changed my whole outlook on myself and what it means to be beautiful," Elaine said.

Elaine first came to my studio 4 years ago to celebrate turning 40. Recently she came back for another reason: she was diagnosed with breast cancer. As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Danielle Leigh of ABC News 7 NY did a beautiful story on Elaine that I was grateful to be a part of.
