You’re a strong, fire-starting woman: we ALL are.
.…some of us simply give ourselves permission to truly believe it.
Yes–we have the amazing privilege to tell some truly powerful stories with our Empowered Portraits. Women overcoming addiction, kicking cancer’s ass, and surviving domestic abuse to name a few. –It’s truly an honor.
However-one thing that weighs on us just a bit is when we tell people what we do –we are often met with responses like ‘Ohh…I love that idea! But I don’t have a story like that.’ or ‘I love her art–but I couldn’t imagine being brave enough to see my face on a wall.’
Ladies-repeat after me: I AM A STORY WORTH CELEBRATING.
“Finding Your Fearless” is about encouraging women to take center stage in their own lives. Being unapologetically seen. Women come to us to celebrate many aspects of their lives and businesses. …And we ALL have a story to tell.
Curious as to some the fearless things our clients found worthy of celebrating with an Empowered Portrait experience?
