"If you're searching for that one person that will change your life, take a look in the mirror."
These sessions have a special place in my heart. I love getting to connect with my subjects on a deeper level, and to simply let them be their wonderful, beautiful selves in front of the camera.
For those who don't know, awareness & healing sessions were created when I began a self portrait series to bring awareness to my auto immune disease Morphea. While photographing the process, I started to notice beautiful and positive things about a subject I had once thought so negatively about. If you'd like, you can read more about this project here. It was a very liberating experience for myself and I wanted to share this feeling with others, and couldn't be happier that Amanda wanted to have an awareness & healing session.
Amanda has been my friend now for a few years and I am so proud of how far she has come with her self love and self discovery since we first met. She has come incredibly far with her business as well, and I know she has worked so hard to achieve all of her personal and business goals. She is a one-of-a-kind #girlboss. Throughout the session we were constantly laughing, having deep talks, and enjoyed the peace of the setting sun. I couldn't get over how beautiful the dress she designed and created was, and how comfortable she looked in it.
Please check out her work and mission here and here and make sure to send her some love!
