Yes, another Personal Branding session. I told you the Universe was listening!
Meet Jessica. Jessica is one of the sweetest, most kind and compassionate, open and authentic women I know. I met her at Pure Prana Yoga Studio where I teach yoga.
Jessica is a prenatal yoga instructor and doula and was in need of images for her website and business Bliss Birth Yoga. I was so excited when she contacted me because I love photographing women, I love photographing women entrepreneurs and I love photographing yoga and wellness entrepreneurs. Triple love!
I have questionnaires for clients that help us identify what they want out of their session. Often, myself included when I had a photo shoot last year, we don’t know what we want other than great photos. But I want to reveal that magic that lies within you, so sometimes we need to dig a little deeper.
For her business and website, Jessica wanted to show her nurturing confidence, her strong desire and ability to support women and to show that she is a “woman’s woman.” More love because I’m ALL ABOUT the ladies — empowering, supporting, uplifting. And to help Jessica show her qualities that related to this? Let’s just say synchronicity flowed.
She also shared the following with me: “I love supporting women during one of the great, most challenging days of their lives. Every time a woman has a positive birth experience, it’s a step forward in changing the culture towards valuing women, and their physiological natural power. I do this work to create change for women and their families. I love my clients and all my students so deeply. I love them for their struggles and challenges – for the stage of life that they are in and all it’s richness for growth. I love them because they are me and I am them. We are interconnected as sisters.” Makes you want to get pregnant and have a baby so you can have Jessica support you, doesn’t it?! She embodies this, 100% even when it was a photoshoot. You can feel the love she has for these ladies.
I love this and I loved working with Jessica. What an amazing, bright soul.
