For most of our lives, we've been told we are not pretty enough, not skinny enough, not young enough, not fit enough; simply not enough. We are expected to change ourselves to fit into the unrealistic expectations of society and quite frankly it’s an exhausting, constant battle with our bodies and mind!
Well I have news for you. YOU ARE ENOUGH just the way you are!
“Confidence is the only key. I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be themselves” – Emma Stone
An intimate empowerment portrait experience is truly and deeply healing as you rediscover and reconnect to your sensuality, softness, strength, self-love and inner confidence. And, I am honoured that you are considering trusting me to capture in this light, to show you how beautiful, confident and badass you truly are.
You have a story to tell, a soul on a journey to reclaim your power through your vulnerability. I have helped many people through this journey already, and I am here to hold you with deep compassion, love, care and empathy as we create images that not only empower you, but alter your life forever!
Hey there beautiful humans! My name’s Jessie. I believe we deserve to feel empowered in every aspect of our lives – and it’s my mission to make sure that happens.
I discovered I was really passionate about empowering others to love themselves after spending too long struggling with my own insecurities and body-shame. Portraiture gave me the ability to work passionately to show others their unique beauty, shed shame and self doubt so they can live empowered lives.
Will you join me on my mission of changing the world, one self-love-revolution at a time?
"Working with Jessie was a fantastic experience from the get go. Jessie eased my anxiety about the whole process and I had so much fun on the day of the shoot, my make up looked amazing, my hair, and the choice of outfits was so cool, I had no idea my wardrobe was that flexible! But most of all I walked into that shoot insecure about myself and walked out empowered and focused on being a better me. I am enough." ~ Rebecca M

And if that list wasn’t enough I am also an internationally qualified Body Liberation Life Coach. So many of the benefits of our session together live in the experience of the day and helping you to see yourself as the truly magnificent human that you are (and who doesn’t want a life coach helping with that?).
"It was so much fun and I would recommend it to anyone. I know I’ll look back on these if I’m blessed enough to get older and slightly saggier, and think how glad I am that I did it. Even now as I look at the photos I can see a new beauty in myself and it gives me a different kind of confidence. We alllll deserve that." ~ Nina S
Enjoy a one-on-one consultation with Jessie, where you will get to design and plan your photo session. We will cover everything you need to know and what to bring to help you prepare for the big day!
You are beautiful exactly the way you are, and we don’t want you thinking that us throwing you into the makeup chair has anything to do with that. This is our chance to fully pamper you, and allow you to indulge in the experience. Getting in the chair helps the nerves dissipate, while the makeup helps the camera know where to pick up light on your face. Jamie (from Soul Glow Artistry) is my go-to hair and makeup witch, she’s been by my side from the beginning. We are your hype girl dream team, here to make sure you feel the best in your skin!
You will be artfully directed all throughout your photo shoot with simple posing and expression, that will give you more confidence in front of the camera. My promise to you is you will have an incredible experience and leave with a new found confidence and the most incredible portraits you have seen of yourself.
After having a fabulous day filled with laughter, there is no waiting for days on end to see your images. Straight after your session, we will sit down together and look through all of the amazing portraits we created, select your favourites and choose the products you would like to order.
"Jessie, you made me feel beautiful and important. I am so thankful for you for making me feel beautiful and look beautiful. This is an experience I would do a thousand times. It was like I was walking on clouds. The experience really boosted my confidence. Now I believe I am beautiful, and I am important and worthy." ~ Lucy A
