Choose Beautiful for Mother’s Day

Personal care company Dove, has over the recent past launched empowering and thought-provoking videos addressing beauty issues faced by women all across the world with their campaign for real beauty.  Their latest video, Dove Choose Beautiful, takes an interesting look into how women perceive themselves versus how their real and unique beauty shines through.  In the video, women from all over the world make a choice to walk through doors marked either Average or Beautiful.  Choosing beautiful isn't always easy to do.

After watching the video, we wanted to join the movement to empower women to #ChooseBeautiful, and with Mother's Day soon approaching on May 10th, we are offering a special Creme de la Femme Portrait Session dedicated to all the strong and beautiful women in our lives.  It is a session designed to bring out your beauty from the inside out, and celebrate the love and connectedness women have for each other.  Our most popular gift to give for Mother's Day, the $299 price includes professional hair and makeup for each session purchased, (regularly $375).  This year, give the gift of #ChoosingBeautiful to all the beautiful women in your life.

Portrait, Branding, Fitness & Studio PHOTOGRAPHER

Fueled by equal parts Earl Grey tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come.
