Webcam Sessions are LIVE!
We stayed home to do our part, and it became business as UNusual...
It sucked, the uncertainty and stress of Covid-19; what is certain, though, is that we're feeling a collective sense of depression, anxiety, loss of control... confidence and self-care are taking a dip (I know mine is) and I wanted to offer a way to connect, give a boost in self-esteem and to shake up the monotony of the day for a while: get out of pajamas, shower, put on something that makes you feel good, laugh your ass off at how out there the whole thing is, and at how fun.
And I loved it so much, the connecting with folx from around the world, being invited (virtually) into your homes, creating art and documenting moments, and bringing a slice of joy to humans I never would have met or worked with otherwise... so I'm keeping this going. Permanently.
It doesn't replace in-studio sessions but is an experience uniquely its own.
I've always said that I'm a body image activist first, and photography is how I choose to share that message. When the studio closed for quarantine, I couldn't shoot sessions in my usual way. I guess you could say it was business as UNusual.
You make the best with what you've got, and what we've got are smartphones, laptops & the internet, and I have a mighty need to make art and keep promoting Babes being Bold in their Bodies.

How Does This Work Exactly??
After you book your session, I send you a confirmation with our platform of choice, etiher Facetime or Zoom). If you're familiar with Zoom, it's easy-peasy, and if you haven't it's still easy! (If you don't have zoom, you can get it here, or we can use Facetime instead). I have you take me on a tour of your space so I can see the light and how it shows up with your device (laptop, tablet or phone - phone works best!). You'll prop that webcam (a phone stand, large mug, or something sturdy to lean it against is handy!) Once that's set, I direct you on where and how to pose, stretching my communication skillz. While you're posing, I “snap shots” just like in the studio. We'll repeat that series of "you move and adjust the camera then I direct you and click a shot" through a few different areas with a bunch of different poses. Once we're finished. I edit your images with some artistic flair and send you an email link to download your 10 digitals (or more) to use however you want!
What to Wear??
The short answer: whatever you want! Go comfy, go fancy, go nudey, whatever works for you and your space. Try lingerie for the bedroom, a towel for the bath, whatever seems to suit the room and works for you.
To Tidy or not to Tidy??
Don't make "but my house is a mess!" be the new "when I lose 10lbs!". Documenting what IS, is important. It's your space and your body and you exist in both and that is awesome. Plus, both are full of character. Great places for us to work in are: the bed, a chair, blank wall, by a window, a cool tub, your backyard, whatever works. This is Art.

because I can't stop creating...
Prints, Instant-Film Style
You know I LOVE prints and feel like "print what you want to preserve" is a mantra I can get behind. Webcam images don't print well at larger sizes becaue of the quality, but these print like a dream. 2x3 mini prints are vintage polaroid style; something for you to keep and remember your experience by.
Single Prints $10 each | 5 Prints for $45 | 10 Prints for $85
Digital Art Collage Featuring your Image
It could be a pose, a gut feeling, a colour combination, there's something in an image that sparks a bit of extra creativity.
Have your art image made into art - very meta. I'll choose the photo and create a digital collage based around you! Now, if your reaction to that idea is "but I don't want to be narcisisitc!", let's squash that critical voice and remind you that you are WORTHY of being art, because you ARE already art. Got it? Good.
Single-image digital collage $45 | Digital collage & 2x3 print $60 | limit one per session
