I wish we were sitting across from one another right now with our favorite cup of joe in our hands, talking about life, but unfortunately we aren’t so this sweet little place will be our meeting spot.
Something to know about me is that when I do meet you, I LOVE hugs. I will compliment you AND mean it! I love flowers but have never been able to grow them. (I am finally learning! YAY) And I love Photography. I have been shooting for seven years now only learning by experience. I repurpose wedding dresses, have a limited edition based apparel line, take pictures of women and self portraits, all for the sake and hope of encouraging YOU.
I am married to my high school sweetheart who also happens to be a crazy creative like me. 🙂 I really adore being in front of the camera but my soul is filled when I am behind it. I live for the moment when I see that switch from shyness and fear of being in front of the camera to confidence and happiness. It’s like this shell just falls apart, and being vulnerable isn’t as scary anymore. That is what I love.
Speaking of scary and vulnerable, I have been there. I have battled with anxiety, depression, confidence issues, and identity crisis. Miss Beautymark is a safe place where women of all sizes, shapes, color, and walks of life come to say, “Me too.” We are all humans and I think it’s time we remember that.
I love being vulnerable and letting down my guard because I know what it’s like to try and be tough. To convince myself I am okay when clearly I am not. I feel stronger when I share my story, and that is where my heart is behind Miss Beautymark.
Whether I share photos of myself, repurposing dresses, or allowing Miss Beautymark to be a platform for other amazing souls with Beautiful stories, this is a safe place for you.
My goal for you is to realize it’s okay to not be okay, and that you are loved, unique, and enough.
This is a community of women that thought they wouldn’t have anything in common with the next girl, but they gladly found that wasn’t the case.
