In today’s media, we are being taught that appearance, weight, and general attractiveness is all we need. We are taught to often value these traits far more than intelligence, humor, and charisma. In studying photography, and aspiring to be the best I can be, I give the gift of beauty. I show clients just how astounding they are, despite the media’s ever present, “You’ll never be perfect” mindset. I hope to give the gift of self esteem and confidence; these are traits that will run today’s world. Give teenagers and young adults the power of themselves, and they can take on anything. Beauty creates passion. I am what is needed to spark a personal fire.
