Health, photography, Unveiling Invisible Illnesses

Astrid is my 12 year old daughter and she also has Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and POTS. She is incredibly strong, talented and beautiful.

Astrid is very athletic and she keeps her Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) under control by staying hydrated.

Health, Unveiling Invisible Illnesses

It’s Okay to Feel

Yes, stay positive! BUT don’t stop having feelings. We have become such an image of perfection and only showcase the positive side of our story. This makes us feel like we can’t ever be raw or have feelings. It’s okay to be frustrated, cry or feel angry. Just don’t live there. It’s okay to feel! 💛👏🏻

Once a Day – Engage Challenge

Do we ever really stop and truly engage, looking into someone’s eyes and feel their existence? We are always too busy or thinking about what we want to say, and let our distractions consume our mind. Our world is disconnected, digital and diluted and we wonder why people feel so invisible and the war on mental health continues to bleed on. I challenge you to engage once a day, whether it is a stranger or your child, friend or spouse. Turn your mind on mute and look them in the eyes an listen.

“How is your day?”

Mermaid Morning

I have always loved mermaids! I got Manic Panic from the Premiere Orlando hair show and decided to play. My model, Frazier was previously featured in my Invisible Illnesses Unveiled feature. Check out the photo shoot we did this morning.

Thirty AF! Thirty Is The New Black – Photo Shoot 🖤🥂

I remember the scare of my thirties haunting me by the age of 25. When 30 finally approached, I already accepted it the years before while whining about being old. I am now 33 and I would not change it if I could. The 20 something me was lost, confused, not good enough, insecure, a doormat, dramatic, stressed and flailing about in life. The 30s were so different. I grew a backbone, developed self worth and confidence, put my damn foot down, figured out what I wanted and what I DON’T want, got my shit together and found balance. 30s are awesome!

Check out my business partner, Theresa Lanno at Bombshells Glam Lounge! I photographed her on her 30th birthday. She is thirty AF and thriving!
