The world needs strong women.
Women who will lift and build others, who will love and be loved.
Women who live bravely, both tender and fierce. Women of indomitable will.
The older I've gotten the more I've come to realize that we as women have the power and opportunity to support and lift each other. One of the easiest ways we can do this is to share our stories. In addition, the older we get the less and less we're seen in the media. I felt the need to change this. Thus, the Be Seen portrait experience was born. By taking part in this photography campaign you'll be acknowledging that your story matters. That YOU matter. You'll be standing up and encouraging others to stand with you.
I have been moved to tears as I've gotten to know the women who have already decided that they are enough just as they are. Their stories are unique and yet universal. They have started their own businesses, overcome self-doubt and the negative voices of others who have told them they're not good enough, known the pain and sorrow of losing children, spouses and parents, and having to start over after divorce or illness. They have come to me unsure of themselves, and left feeling beautiful and seen. And I have loved seeing that transformation happen right before my camera.
What is your story? Are you ready to tell it? Are you ready to experience the transformation that comes with seeing yourself the way I see you? Strong, powerful, capable, beautiful, and worth it? Take part in a revolution happening right now. Ordinary women everywhere are discovering their extraordinary. What’s your extraordinary? Come, find out. Be Seen.
