Schedule a Consultation

Before our session, we discuss where you are in your self-love journey, personal goals that you have for yourself, and build a photoshoot around how you want to view yourself moving forward.

After our consultation, you'll pay the session fee and review and sign the contract to secure the shoot date.

We will also  guide you through our shot list, wardrobe, hair, and makeup suggestions to create images that give you an entirely new appreciation for who you are.

My Promise To You

I am VERY camera shy - to the point I am reluctant to let my boyfriend take photos of me. Today, however, I felt confident as all get out thanks to Jackie. She quickly put me at ease, involved me in the process and took some amazing shots. I felt like a model by the end! Highly recommend, had an absolute blast.

Learning to love yourself is a lifelong journey, but you have to start somewhere. 

Since I was a kid, I’ve always been a bigger girl and that made me a target for bullies and weird and unhelpful comments from “well-meaning” relatives. I was first made conscious of my weight when a gym teacher in middle school pulled me aside and “advised” me to lose a little weight if I wanted to get through our running drills in gym class. I remember feeling awful for the rest of the day. I just couldn’t shake that comment off despite protestations from older relatives to just move on. 

My insecurities grew the bigger I got, the more attention my weight garnered, more off-handed comments from relatives and classmates, and rejections. I didn’t realize how much of my past experiences I’d internalized until one night where I was feeling at m lowest. I hated the person staring back at me in the mirror. One night, the amount of negative things that I often said to myself got so bad that I didn’t want to exist anymore. 

I’m a woman of faith, so for anyone who’s not familiar with prayer, this next part might strike you as odd, but I heard God say “Are you pretty enough for me?” That stopped me dead in my tracks. 2 things happened: 1) I thought, “oh, ok this is my psychotic break. I’ve officially lost it.” And 2) I went back to crying and eventually cried myself back to sleep. I woke up the next day and asked God where I go from there. It was then that I heard, “Tell yourself you are beautiful.”

Dragging my feet to the bathroom mirror, I barely got the words out, but I said, “You…are beautiful. Whatever.”

I did this every day and eventually got to a place where I’d start taking selfies until I got a shot that I liked. 

I don’t know where you are in your journey to truly loving yourself and I know what it’s like to feel like you’re not good enough based on your looks because experiences and people have always given you a reason to believe otherwise. I can tell you that I still have a long way to go, but it starts with that first step. For me, it was doing something that took me completely out of my comfort zone – affirmations and photography. So, depending on where you are in your journey, I invite you to make that next step (or leap) into appreciate who you are and your unique beauty right at this moment. 

Let’s schedule a chat to talk through more of what your self-love journey has been thus far and join a community of people who are also learning how to love themselves on Facebook. Then, once you’re ready to make that bold choice to step in front of a camera and see yourself as beautiful, book a Self-Love Session with me and let’s create images that mark this moment and that you can proudly display for all to see.
