a FREE photo shoot

with Black Locust!


Submission Deadline: May 29, 2016


" We see beauty in everyone else. The challenge is seeing beauty in ourselves."

Everyone has a story of a time they haven't felt beautiful, confident, noticed or loved. In a decade of photographing individuals, every person I've had in front of my camera has scrutinized some part of themselves while being photographed. I understand the struggle of accepting and embracing the way we look. Through photography, I help individuals see past their perceived flaws to reveal the beauty and strength of their true selves. There is no formula, no cookie cutter design. Every detail of each photo shoot is tailored to the individual being photographed.

"Art is the lie that enables us to realize the truth."

Whether you've already persevered through hard times to get to the other side or you're still immersed in the struggle, tell us your story and share what a Black Locust photo shoot would mean to you.
