Invitation~ 2 for 1 makeover and photo shoot for Mother’s Day


Behind that worn t-shirt, saggy jeans and outgrown highlights, hides an amazing and powerful woman that has always been there for you. Your mama. Or, this is

Y O U! A mama that deserves to glam up her hair and make-up, slip into a fabulous dress, even if it’s been dusty for years, and step into feeling like a stunning and confident woman.

Whether you want to gift a mama or treat yourself to something special this Mother’s Day; a reSOULution photo shoot will make for a fun and memorable experience with images to treasure forever, and a reminder to treasure

y o u r s e l f.

For the month of May, I invite you to enjoy 

a 2 for 1 makeover and photo session*

Schedule a glamour shoot for Y O U or with your mother/daughter and let me inspire, empower and capture the very essence of Y O U! I am a creative artist who captures your beauty, and guides you to see yourself in a new light.

Deep down we all want to be recognized for the exceptional beings we are. I want to be the person who makes you realize the potential and fire within you. Girl, you’ve got some one-of-a-kind energy!

I invite you all to connect with your inner showstopper in front of my lens!

I got a closet full of clothes and NOTHING to wear…

…sounds familiar? I don’t consider myself much of a fashionista or a shopper for that matter. I like to feel comfortable  in what I wear (middle-age alert) and I never seem to be able to match shoes with what I’m wearing. Shopping for clothes can be such a painful and disappointing experience. My 155cm (about 5 foot) frame, makes everything looks too long, oversized and bulky.

Last month I had the super talented and amazing Skyler McCurine with Le Red Balloon come over to my house for a closet organization and consulting session. All I could think was, “what can she possibly find in my closet that I don’t already know about?” and “what if she doesn’t find anything?”.

We started off with some questions like “What were you wearing the last time you felt really comfortable, confident, and utterly fabulous?”, “Describe your current style in three words” and “Describe the style you want”. All fun and surprisingly hard questions to answer.

Skyler, being the professional that she is, cheered me on as I tried to figure out what kind of style that I really wanted. I believe I came up with comfortable, bohemian and most importantly; sassy!

We jammed out to some groovy tunes, toasted with bubbly water as Skyler did her Magic in my closet. Magic is the right word as she managed to pull out and put together no less than 17 fabulous outfits and combinations that I never would have dreamed about creating myself. FullSizeRender-1This fabulous skirt from Anthropologie became a dress!

She asked for me to pull out items that I loved but simply couldn’t figure out how to wear or what to wear it with. And voila`! She found the perfect combinations with items that I never wore but didn’t want to let go of.

I felt like a million dollars after my closet re-organization with Skyler and didn’t have to spend a single dollar on new clothes!

I highly recommend this amazeballs experience to anyone out there that utters the famous words “I got a closet full of clothes and NOTHING to wear!”

Skyler is also a great resource to help select outfits for a photo shoot with yours truly 🙂

Contact Skyler at and check out her website Le Red Balloon

Peace, Love & re-vamping galore

What’s your New Year’s reSOULution? 

Sometimes what you are most afraid of doing 

is the very thing that will set you free


Only one more month to the new year, did anyone keep their 2014 New Year’s resolution?

How come it always feels like the year just flew by? Especially when we haven’t taken care of all those things that we said, “I’ll get around to one day” or “it will happen by the end of this year”.

It’s almost December, and lucky for us, we have another opportunity to start over fresh, and the feeling of “everything is possible” seems a bit more realistic.

I’m quite fascinated with the word resolution, so much that I decided to adapt it (with a bit of a tweak) into my tagline “Express Your Divine re|SOUL|ution”. How can you resist such a juicy and inspiring word with synonyms like purpose, tenacity and courage? I think it is so much more than just something you promise yourself after a few glasses of champagne as the ball drops on Time Square, or when you wake up on Jan 1st with “I’ll NEVER-(fill in the blank)-again!”

Your reSOULution is your purpose, your essence, your determination and spunk. It’s a lifestyle and has taken you to where you are today. Sure we can get a bit off track sometimes, but your inner fire and drive is still the same.

Your reSOULution is who you are.

If you would describe yourself with one word, your reSOULution, what would it be? What is that one word that sums up who you are, how you make your decisions, how you react and how you live your life?

That word is an important reminder of who you are and it should be in the center of your vision board. If you have never made one, it’s time to do so, and if you have one… maybe it’s time to re-vamp it?

Just grab a thick poster board, a bunch of old magazines and start to cut and paste images and words of experiences, feelings, and relationships that you would like to manifest in your life. Place it in a spot where you will see it every day and watch the Magic happen. I have created vision boards for years and have realized amazing travel opportunities, manifested unexpected income…the list goes on, it is crazy how well it works!

When I work with a client to prepare for a reSOULution portrait photo session, I have her fill out a questioner with fun questions about themselves. I also encourage my clients to create a Pinterest board with images and quotes that they like the look and feel of. It is, in itself, a bit of a vision board that will help me create the best experience for my clients photo shoot.

So, for this New Year’s reSOULution, why not create a beautiful vision board around your very purpose and desires. Perhaps that includes your very own reSOULution photo shoot with yours truly!

A photo shoot makes for a beautiful gift for yourself, your family, and your significant other.

I invite you all to connect with your inner showstopper in front of my lens!

PS, I will be at Lemongrass Salon and SPA’s holiday event on Sunday Dec 7th 11am-4pm.  You’ll receive a $100 credit towards photos, when you book a reSOULution photo shoot with me that day.

Wishing you all a fabulous and inspiring December~
