Do You Know Who You Really Are?

At heart, we all want to be seen but are too afraid of being judged or rejected. Instead of looking to ourselves for validation and self-worth, we look for it elsewhere. We tell ourselves stories about who we think we are and what we think we’re capable of based on our limiting beliefs. We live in fear based on these beliefs because there is a part of us that feels that we are “not enough.” This is not who we are.

Be the Woman You're Meant to Be

We all have an innertrue self. Although we sometimes don’t see or feel her, she is still in there. She is the woman we truly are and the woman we’re meant to be. When we are connected to her, there is unimaginable strength and beauty. This is the woman I want to show you.

Imagine how different your life could be if you had a strong connection to yourself, accepted yourself fully, leaned into your fears and showed up as your most authentic self. What would your life look like?

Transformative Portrait Photographer

To hear my story, listen to my interview with Sara McArdle on her podcast “Women Who Went for It.”


Have you ever felt lost or disconnected from yourself, like your life lacked meaning and purpose? That’s how I felt as I approached my mid-40s. Through life and difficult times, I lost my confidence and drive. Instead of living with intention, I lived in fear and felt numb and helpless. I felt like I didn’t matter.

I had a family photography business I started years ago but resisted investing any real effort into it. Suffering from impostor syndrome, I lacked the confidence to even call myself a ‘photographer.’ That all changed when I saw a portrait photographer speak and it awoke something in me. I just knew women’s portraits was my calling and it became louder than my fear so I pursued it. I discovered I could capture a woman’s essence, her confidence, inner beauty, and soul. I felt destined to succeed but my fears kept getting in the way and I realized I was doing without being. I was asking women to be vulnerable in front of my camera but I wasn’t vulnerable. I was asking women to reconnect with themselves through my portraits but I wasn’t connected to myself. I had so much more to learn… That’s when I made the decision to face my fears and my journey to reconnect with myself truly began.* I didn’t know exactly what I was doing or where I was going — it felt like a leap into the dark unknown but one I trusted. Once I walked through that darkness, I discovered everything I aspired to be was already inside me, in my true self. I confronted my old fears, shed my old beliefs and listened to my gut. In that process, I found my life’s purpose unfolding.

I had to go on my own journey to realize my purpose is to empower women by giving them the opportunity go on theirs.

I want you to see yourself, your true self and realize the woman you aspire to be is already inside you. Just as I had done for me. I had to first learn to value myself, know my inherent self-worth and that had to come from inside of me. You can choose to show up for yourself too. If you’re ready to make a change, and something in your gut is telling you this might for you, let’s chat to explore

The Studio

"There is nothing more daring than showing up, putting ourselves out there and letting ourselves be seen."

- Brené Brown
