A Return To Love
The name of this photo was inspired by a book I love by Marianne Williamson about women returning to the state of love to find the answers to life’s bigger questions.
This gal is walking quickly down this Parisian street like she has just heard the most beautiful secret of all time and can’t wait to get home to tell the ones she loves what she has discovered – herself.
The way she holds this big bunch of gladiolus is a metaphor for the feeling that comes when you truly embrace and love who you are. When you finally see yourself in all your beauty, full of respect and acceptance of the real you, do you return to the natural state of loving yourself.
The love inside feels abundant and joyous like this exploding bouquet of flowers.
The best journey is always the one home to you!
Young Girl In Bloom
This series was inspired by that delicate age when young girls are between teenagers but not yet women. This incredible moment in life when young women are on the verge of greatness but often don't realise it.
These photos were created with the young girls around me in mind, who are so innately beautiful and powerful yet often don't see it in themselves.
The images have names such as I Believe in Me, Great Future Ahead, On My Way and Standing Her Ground and my wish is that they inspire women to look within at their own beauty, find their uniqueness and tap into their power. And when a Young Girl Is In Bloom, when she knows her self-worth she is most powerful force on earth!
