This empowering portrait session is so special to me because Ashley is such an incredible woman! Ashley and I have shot together a handful of times over the years. But, this was the first time I had the pleasure of shooting her by herself. She’s grown tremendously as a person. Ashley has upended her life multiple times on the journey to find herself and what would create her completely blissful life. It’s been an honor to be a part of that in my small way! This was a celebration of her and how far she’s come and how far she’s yet to go.
Portrait sessions for a single subject work just a little differently than portrait sessions for a couple. Instead of getting to know you two and your connection, what your love looks like, I focus on getting to know you by yourself. That means focusing on what your connection to yourself and to your body looks like. We laugh a lot, I make a lot of inappropriate jokes, and we get really real.
My entire mission is to create both a safe and empowering space that lifts you up. I want to capture who you truly are, and making you feel comfortable is a huge part of being able to do that. Ashley was able to laugh and celebrate who she’s become during her empowerment portrait session – and that’s all I could have asked for!
