Reconnect with Yourself

No fancy outfits, no stylized setup, just a simple backdrop and lighting. My goal is to capture you, your true self, and who you really are.

You are feeling a little lost, disconnected from yourself and wonder how you got here. Maybe you were, at some point in your life, more self-assured and connected to yourself or maybe you’ve never really felt this way. You want more from your life but are not sure what it is or how to get there. You are yearning for something more… you want to reconnect with yourself.

I have been where you are and I too am on a journey to reconnect with myself. I have come to understand the following truth — I believe that all of us have a true self. It is our higher self. It is the self on our best days and the self we aspire to be. Although we sometimes don’t see or feel her, she is still in there and we can draw strength from her. When we are connected to this person, we reveal our inner light. This inner light is the person we truly are and the person we’re meant to be. When you’re connected to that self, there is unimaginable strength and beauty. This is the woman I want to show you.

Whether you are just beginning your journey to reconnect with yourself or already on your path, being able to see your true self can be a meaningful and emotional experience. Women are surprised at how confident and beautiful they look in their portraits and they see many different sides of themselves. The portraits can often remind them of someone they used to be or aspire to be.

Take my hand and let me help you on your journey. Whether you are curious or ready to explore yourself, let’s sit down together over a cup of coffee (or tea) and chat so we can discuss how I can contribute to your journey. Contact me at hi@judyleephotography.com or you can begin by joining me on my journey by subscribing to my Newsletter. In the meantime, read the Testimonials, watch the Reveal videos and see the Before & Afters below so you can witness what the experience is like for yourself.

She,
In the dark,
Found light
Brighter than many ever see.
She,
Within herself,
Found loveliness,
Through the soul’s own mastery.
And now the world receives
From her dower:
The message of the strength
Of inner power.
-Langston Hughes

Testimonials

I am a wife and mom and businesswoman who spends most of her time just playing catch up with life. The images showed ME. But not the me that barely keeps her kids in clean clothes. When I look at my images, I see the me that used to travel around the world. The me that does her own thing, and doesn’t care what others think. It’s the me that is still in there somewhere but on most days I don’t know how to get to her. Seeing myself in my images is giving me courage to look for myself again in my every day life.

I like that the pictures show different parts of my personality, different sides of who I am and most of the sides, you don’t really get to see very often, that sometimes I forget about. I see memories from different times in my life that I think of when I look at those pictures. They are a reminder that I’m not just the mom and the wife, but somebody else that kind of got lost along the way. I can pass the pictures down to my kids. I want them to see that there’s another side too. They might not get it now but maybe when they’re adults they’ll get it.

I look beautiful. I love the way I look in the pictures. I really like my smile. I’d forgotten that I really like my smile and just seeing the pictures kind of reminded me. I don’t know how but somewhere along the way I forgot and so it was nice to see it again. When I look at the pictures, I see more than a mom, I see the person I kind of remember being before kids. I see me. It’s how I want to see myself, it’s how I envision my best self looking which is not how I feel everyday. It helps me to remind myself of who I am, who maybe I want to be on a daily basis, my best self.

Tanya
Tanya

It showed me a part of myself that I never see in my mind and that was really emotional. I think I have to process this and I really just want to spent time looking at myself—really looking into myself, the part of me that was captured that I haven’t looked at in a long time. The longer I look at the pictures, the more I see so I’m getting to know myself. I’m learning about who that ‘me’ is. The experience has been really incredible. It’s not about the superficial, the makeup, the hair, the clothing. It got down to that person in there and for that, it’s been a really memorable and important moment.

Kate

It’s a good feeling looking at the pictures. There’s a lot of beauty that I don’t always see in myself… When I told my daughter that I was having this photo session, her immediate reaction was to ask for one of the prints to hang in her room which really struck me. Sometimes you forget that’s important to your kids and that they see you through the lens of that love and relationship that you have and they cherish it and they can have something physical to remind them of that. Not just pictures of me and my kids, or the kids by themselves or family, but having the picture of just their mom.

Kimberly
Kimberly

When I first saw the pictures, I felt like I looked beautiful. I liked how my eyes came through and they captured me. I don’t like pictures of myself usually. I get too critical and start nit picking everything. I’m not always confident in how I look but when I look at the pictures, I see a beautiful person who’s happy. I see someone who is confident and can let her personality show through and be beautiful, and relaxed. It made me see myself in a different way. I don’t have any photos like this. All the pictures that I have are of the children or family photos but there’s none of just me.

Reveal Videos

The reveal experience is different for everyone—some women react emotionally, while others intellectually. Watch these videos to witness for yourself what it’s like to see the many sides of you and get in touch with who you really are.

Ariane

Ariane had an emotional reaction to seeing her images because it brought up memories from a time in her life before she had kids.

Tanya

Tanya had a session with her daughter where she was both photographed with her daughter and separately. We focused on her for this video which made her realize something about herself.

Kate

Seeing her portrait gave Kate an opportunity to get to know herself better and see herself in ways she hadn’t before.

Kristin

Kristin doesn’t usually like pictures of herself but seeing her portrait helped her see herself in a different way.

Kimberly

Kimberly felt joy seeing so many different sides of herself. It helped her realize how important it was for her daughter to have a picture of her as a physical reminder of their relationship.

Before & After

A portrait is not about the makeup, the hair or the clothes. It’s about seeing who you really are on the inside, discovering the many sides of you and help you reconnect with yourself.
