Batsto New Jersey Crystal ~ I am power. I empower.

“Every mom has had that time in her life when she just needed an extra lift in life; someone to believe in her; to educate her. That’s where I come in.” ~Crystal V. Pizarro

Crystal is a gifted life coach for moms. She is passionate about empowering moms with the tools they need to live a fulfilled life. She is authentic, grounded, and inspiring. It was my absolute honor to capture these photos for her business platform but most of all to take her through this unique personal experience.

We chose to have Crystal’s photo session in Batsto because she loves earthy elements as well as old architecture and feeling the history in places. It was a gorgeous autumn day and the golden sunlight was dappling through the trees providing the perfect backdrop for us to get in our creative zone. We approached each photo with emotional mindfulness as she channeled the confidence, calm, balance, happiness, and focus that she helps her clients achieve through her work.

Crystal is doing such amazing work in the world. I have personally worked with her as an overwhelmed mother and the tools and support she has provided me with have been priceless. It was so gratifying for me to photograph her and allow her to be on the receiving end for a change. She certainly deserves to feel her power and beauty as she helps so many others find peace and calm in their lives.

Cape May New Jersey Cheri~ Ocean soul

"Waves are inspiring not because they rise and fall, but because each time they fall they never fail to rise again." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

  Cheri is exuberant, present, and joyful.  She has a contagious positive energy about her and she is an incredible storyteller.  I was captivated by her bravery and enthralled by her stories of travel, adversity, and adventure.  Her story is especially inspiring as she left a corporate six figure job to pursue her dreams.  Her journey has been full of adventures, overcoming obstacles, and risk taking and following her heart has taken her to amazing places. 

  The beach is Cheri's happy place, so I wanted to capture her in her element.  It was incredible to see her come alive as she allowed herself to be in the moment and one with the ocean.  She commanded the waves, she created art in the sand, and she meditated by the water.  She was playful, present, and free. 

  Sharing this experience with Cheri influenced me in so many ways.  I gained courage through her stories and inspiration through her adventures.  Working with her was an incredibly joyful and grounding experience.  I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to create this beautiful art with her.
