• Begins with a brief consultation to better understand what you are dreaming of creating. I want to know more about your personal style and what images inspire you. We will talk about hair and makeup and all the details that go with it. 


  • The day of the photoshoot I will guide you through every pose down to your expression. We will play with 2-3 outfits in the span of about 2 hours. 


  • I will then take the best of the best images and those will receive a signature edit. When you come back for your reveal you will see about 30 images for you to select from. 


The Portrait Project began with my own Mother. My mom was struggling with deep depression, the kind of depression that caused her to sleep the majority of her day away. I would spend many days trying to get her out of her bed, getting her into the shower and dressing her up in attempts to lift her spirit. 

After 4 years of studying everything I could find on depression, encouragement, vision and creation, I discovered that the days where she saw herself all dolled up, she was much more positive. Her confidence would shine a little bit and it seemed she believed in herself a little bit more. I wanted her to see that beautiful power in herself all the time. 

I set up a full photoshoot, hair, make-up, styling, lighting and coaching to achieve the very best portrait. I printed a few of the photographs and presented them to my mother. She stared at them with awe, I could feel her growing with pride in herself. I could see her smile grow big, as she thanked me. In that moment, I knew I would spend my life investing in the encouragement of women through photography.
