I help the everyday people unlock their potential and find new, exciting ways to find confidence and empowerment through self-portraits. Let's reshape the way we think about photos of us: It's for us first, and then for others second.

 Jen

Jen is a Korean-American mom of 2 and a content creator in the beauty realm. Jen was no stranger to being in photoshoots and seeing images of herself, but even then she felt like she has yet to see a full version of herself. Being in the beauty industry, she's had to withstand the pressure of showing up "perfect" in every scenario and she wanted to break free to express a more raw and vulnerable side of her. This conversation with David led to finding two other sides of her she wanted to explore and celebrate: her cultural and sensual side. 

meet jen

Lastly, having grown up with conservative values in Kansas, Jen felt like she always had to present proper. Her sensual side was always hidden away because of her fear of judgement. Now she wants to be able to express that side of her.

sensual

As a mom of 2 and as someone who grew up being taught that crying is bad, Jen wanted to connect with her vulnerable side more. To not only tell her inner-child that it's okay to be sad, but also set the right example for her two kids.

vulnerable

Jen wanted to connect with her Korean culture in a way where she could be unapologetically Korean loud and proud in a modern way. We talked what it means to be Korean-American that empowers her.

 Jilene

Jilene is a cheerful soul with a passion for her career as a creative tech designer. She came to us as she was turning 40 and engaging in a new season of self-love.

"I haven’t always made time to celebrate the woman I am and the woman I am becoming. As a woman who is in a caregiving capacity and who gives a lot of herself sacrificially, it is crucial to seize opportunities for self-expression and to celebrate and acknowledge all the self-development work and obstacles overcome. I am welcoming a new chapter with excitement, where I prioritize myself first, enabling me to be my best self for others."

She aimed to embrace her femininity and remind herself that she can be confident, powerful, and feminine simultaneously.
