Alloway New Jersey Autumn ~ Blooming from Within

“We all have the ability to gift our children experiences that fuel their confidence and serve them in a positive way that will affect their lives forever.” ~Jennifer Roth

My daughter Autumn is 14 years old and she is in a very special time of her life. She is now a young woman in the throes of figuring out who she is and how to navigate the world through this new lens. Truth be told it’s been a struggle for her adjusting to these new emotions and effects that “womanhood” has on your body and mind. Any parent of a teenage daughter can attest that it can be challenging to witness them going through these struggles and the outbursts of emotion that they can evoke.

As a mother I cherish this time with my daughter. I see this as an opportunity to hold her hand and guide her through this journey of becoming a woman. I am extremely open with her and talk to her about the many issues that we face as women. I teach her about the importance of self care and self love while modeling it so that she sees me leading by example. I include her in trips to the gym and making nourishing meals as well as talk to her about the importance of having healthy outlets and being her own friend.

I am blown away by how confident and strong Autumn is. This transitional time in her life is symbolic of blooming from within. So it only seemed appropriate to do a photo shoot demonstrating that. Gifting her this experience to see her strength and beauty has been so powerful. She will forever look back on these photos and remember this time in a positive light. I am incredibly grateful to share the bond that I do with her and look forward to creating more art together. She is my daughter, my teacher, my friend and it is truly a privilege to share this journey with her. To say that I am proud of the woman she is becoming would be an understatement. Look out world because this young woman is going to do BIG things…

Thank you jennifer designs events for the incredible floral work and your artistic vision.

Alloway New Jersey Beth ~ Trusting inner source

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” ~Dalai Lama

Beth is an empowered woman. She is very grounded in her spiritual practices and guides others in their own healing work. I was thrilled to collaborate with her and create some images that reflect her spirituality as the work she is doing in the world is so aligned with my passions.

As Beth approaches the completion of her 200 hour shaktinanda yoga training, we wanted to document this exciting time in her journey. She is now guiding others to tune into their bodies and aiding them in energetic healing practices. These images are a beautiful demonstration of her abilities and desire to help others achieve inner peace and happiness.

Witnessing Beth tune into her inner source and harness her divine energy was extraordinary. Her peaceful yet playful energy truly inspired me. I am so grateful to have created this beautiful and spiritual art with her and I am so honored to have been a part of the positive impact she is bestowing upon the world.

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.
