Do you lose yourself when you’re in a relationship?

When you’re in love, it’s so easy to replace ME with WE

When was the last time you did something just for you?

We want our partners, our friends, our families to be happy so much so that we’re constantly compromising. It starts small, but overtime it builds up. When you look in the mirror, do you wonder where that inner wild child has gone? Dating coach & marriage therapist Bree Jenkins is constantly reminding women to take care of themselves. As much as she is a huge proponent of going on special date nights, she is also a big believer in taking time to love yourself. Which is why we planned this amazing water inspired self-care photoshoot.

Weddings are beautiful events but they are also incredibly stressful and full of compromise. This photoshoot I did with Bree after her wedding in Hawaii is a story of self love and self care. Even though many of the photos were gifts to her new husband, the photoshoot was also about play. This photoshoot experience was all about what Bree wanted, without compromise. Of course I gave some styling & pose input but overall it was to give this beauty the images she wanted and deserved. When you give yourself the opportunity to let go and just be, it’s amazing the beauty you can create.
