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.

Villas New Jersey Julie ~ Joy

"Joy is the most magnetic force in the universe." ~Danielle LaPorte

  Julie is one of the most exuberant people I have ever met.  She is able to channel her inner child and exude play and fun in a way that inspires me beyond words.  She is spiritual, passionate, joyful, and possesses a glow that you can't help but be drawn to.

  The beach is Julie's happy place and she loves to dance so we combined her loves and set the scene for her to open up and experience freedom.  We played music, opened our eyes and hearts to the beauty of nature, and giggled and danced through this joyful session. 

  Our story is a little unique as our original destination of choice is not where we ended up shooting her session.  The universe had other plans for us as we made a quick decision to photograph her at the Bay rather than the Ocean.  We ended up with a spectacular sunset on our own "private" beach and could not be more thrilled with the results!  It was a beautiful lesson to go with the flow and let the universe guide you because the magic that occurred was extraordinary.

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.
