Our newly launched RISE portrait sessions are something entirely different that a typical portrait sitting. After photographing women for over 13 years, I’ve loved learning how to create a really fierce, jaw dropping portrait of someone. And honestly, it has nothing to do with the right hair and make-up, but everything to do with channeling that quiet force inside of you. We want to spend time doing just that.

We want your RISE portrait to remind you of your strength, vulnerability, passion and love every time you look at it. A reminder that you are whole and you are enough. One thousand times more than enough. Creating this powerful of an image takes experience, focus and quite a bit of time. All of which I am so happy to give you. Let your RISE session mark a new chapter in your life of self acceptance and power. Or perhaps something else significant of your choice.

This session will start with a long consultation before your shoot. Where we sit down, have some tea or a glass of wine and talk about what you want to convey with your image and why you are here. I want to ask you powerful questions that you can actually answer to me or quietly in your own mind.  This shoot will take place in our new studio space, a shared space of my home. Our hope is that you can feel relaxed and more connected to me and the experience this way. The larger version of this package will include a guided yoga and meditation session customized for your specific experience. Lunch and hair and make-up will follow.

So very looking forward to photographing you in our studio space in Encinitas, Ca.
