We have everything we need to live the life we want. The world supports us, God and the Universe support us. Everything we need is already inside of us. When we work on and improve the relationship we have with ourselves, more doors open and more possibilities come to fruition.

I’ve learned that we come to this plant to not only live extraordinary lives, but to grow and create expansion for the world. The wonderful thing is that we all have the capability to create expansion in different ways. We all have our own unique gifts, and we choose how we want to express those gifts and help others.

It was not until about 8 months after starting photography that I realized WHY I really started in the first place. When someone who knows me describes me, they say I am genuine, bubbly, joyful, funny, warm and inspiring. I have used these traits in my nursing career, but I want to use these traits in other ways in order to impact more people.

So, photography to me is not just about creating beautiful images of people, it allows me to fully expand into the best version of myself and create a positive impact in people’s lives through the unforgettable experience I give them.

Starting my own business was never about me – it is about how many lives I can improve and how many people I can help. It is when we help others and create such expansion that we receive those equivalents back into our own lives. It’s no longer about wanting or hoping to create positivity for people, but looking at it as my duty – it is my ‘ultimate job,’ and it is what God brought me here to do.

Every new change I make in my business is based around the following principles: love, care, concern and giving. I think we can all agree the world needs a little more of this, right?! The more I can be my happy, bubbly, genuine self, the more positivity I spread and the more people I can elevate.

I never thought I would be a photographer or a business owner, but God sometimes shows us what we need to be doing with our lives in the most peculiar ways, and it is up to us to answer that call and trust Him.

When we are living our purpose, our dharma, we are automatically aligned with our highest selves and that is when we begin to attract and create the extraordinary, seemingly out of reach lives that we dream so often about.

So, maybe that dream life where we own a big beautiful home and we drive a car we love, and we never stress about money really ISN’T out of reach . . . maybe we need to do a little digging, do a little soul-searching, get quiet with ourselves and reflect deep within. We can’t be scared, we can’t doubt. When we get quiet, we hear our call, and when we hear our call, we must answer. This is when we live our lives the way we were always meant to.

There is so much more to our existence here.


With Love,
