The understanding of how important it is to be seen through someone else’s eyes has taken on a new meaning to me. I have always talked about and created shoots around making sure children feel seen and shoots to let them know how amazing they are and how their parents see them. I recently did this shoot and have a stronger understanding of how important it is for women at any age and maybe even more so, over 50. When Rachel saw her images for the first time she couldn’t believe what she saw. This woman, she clearly knew was her, except a version she never sees in the mirror. Mirrors play with our mind and show us all our flaws, it does not connect, or show us our beauty that is on the inside. Rachel saw what I see, what the world see’s.
Rachel originally came to me because she needed personal branding head shots for her work. We created the shoot around her drumming and soul retrieval work that she does. What was captured was the work, the woman, and her inner intensity and beauty she had forgotten was there. You can find her on center-now.com if you would like to learn more about the work she does or order her book.
