Go With Your Gut

Congratulations to Nutritionist Laura De Sanctis, who is now working with two fantastic brands, CaliiLove and Hyba with so much more news coming! Here are Laura's new photos from her recent Personal Branding Session.

The He/She Project

The He/She Project is Daniel Pillai's celebration and acceptance of all the experiences that have led him to this point of self-expression.

Daniel was bullied as a child in school and at home with his family. Often times whenever he experienced and faced this unacceptance it was through derogatory terms such as "He/She" to distastefully highlight his feminine characteristics as an innate abnormality.

This photo editorial is an attempt to reclaim the phrase "He/She" and any variation associated with it, across any language and culture.

Today Daniel uses the phrase which was used to malign him and his spirit to celebrate himself through images.

"I am proud to be HE. I am proud to be SHE" - Daniel Pillai

Beautiful Tricia is a mom and a Real Estate Agent. She came in for business portraits, but during her consultation opened up about the fact she has always wanted a beauty photo shoot experience and gorgeous contemporary photographs... Of course nothing gave me more pleasure than to capture her beauty in this way so she can have photos she feels proud of to cherish forever!

“Beauty and femininity are ageless and cannot be contrived” - Marilyn Monroe

Celebrate who you are right now in this moment!
