I'd like to invite you into my story and an into experience.
Last year I was in the middle of a difficult breakup and the very early whispers of a spiritual awakening. I felt lost AF but also strangely empowered and at peace. I couldn't see where I was going, but I was learning to trust the voice within me. I was at my heaviest weight ever, but I felt the key to my transformation was learning to love myself more. And so I decided to embrace myself and step in front of the camera. I thought I was just documenting that season in my life with the added bonus of taking branding photos for my business. But what happened was so much deeper that that. You see, that photo session was the biggest gift, because it was an opportunity to show up AUTHENTICALLY and to practice loving myself more deeply. Up until that point, I was so concerned with polish and perfection. But when I stepped in front of the camera, I was invited to let it all go. All of the expectations, all of the perfection. I was invited to be EMBODIED in my truth.
When the photos were delivered, I pored through each one, expecting to notice the extra pounds and every moment of awkwardness. But what happened instead was an overflow of LOVE for myself.
For THIS body. For THIS heart. For THIS soul.
The photos weren't perfect, but they were ME. I was in tears, but they were tears of joy.
I'd like to do the same for YOU, beautiful.

A Soul Embodiment Portrait session is an energetic exchange. It is process of alchemy and co-creation where we both show up vulnerably and in our power. I will hold sacred space for you to tune into your inner being and explore what wants to be expressed. I'll connect with my own guidance, and together we allow the muse to show up and do her thing.
We'll start with a centering meditation with cacao and sacred sound to get tuned into your intentions. The gentle spirit of cacao is known to be a very heart opening sacred plant*. The vibration of music promotes relaxation and helps you feel grounded in your body and at ease for our shoot. And if movement is more your jam, we'll have a mini dance party to get the empowered energy flowing!
I'll guide and encourage you the entire time, as you begin to embody your truth and intuitively feel into the practice of showing up, being seen, and photographed in your radiance and light.

*A few notes on cacao: I use 100% ceremonial grade cacao from Guatemala and have sat in sacred ceremony training. 100% cacao contains trace amounts of caffeine and a chemical compound called theobromine, which is also a naturally occurring stimulant, but one that creates greater mental focus and creativity without the jittery after effects of caffeine. Cacao is often called a plant medicine and is credited with opening up the heart space and greater dimensions of consciousness; however, it is not psychoactive in any way. It is an MAOI and should not be consumed if you take prescription anti-depressants, SSRI's, or MAOI inhibitors or if you have serious heart conditions. Please consult your medical doctor if you have any concerns. I am always happy to use a decaffeinated herbal tea in its place for your session if you let me know in advance.
