NOW YOU :: The eCourse

Through photography we express emotions, thoughts, and forever capture moments in a click. Most days focusing on the beauty before us and around us, not within us. Self portraiture is a journey. I turn the camera on myself to document a day, a time, a feeling, or a need to be seen. As a mom and a photographer I fully admit that I once hid behind my camera. Slowly I began turning the lens on myself, not for others, (though surely my children will one day appreciate them) but for me alone. In doing so I was able to dig a little deeper, accept myself with a better kindness, acknowledge the hard days, the sick days, and even pain, as well as the joy. Seeing beauty in the lines, the wrinkles, the stretchmarks. The stories that are mine alone. Lessons come from being on the other side of the lens. Being seen is as important as sharing your voice. I have found I am worthy. So are you.

Today I am excited to announce the launch of NOW YOU website and a first in a series of self portraiture eCourses co-created with my friend, artist, and fellow photographer Meredith Winn.

NOW mantra: Empowerment through photography can be life changing. It’s through self-portraiture that we learn to look kindly at ourselves. Let your camera guide you. The goal of NOW is inspiration, empowerment, and confidence building through photography.
