Lindsey is a beautiful, vibrant woman in her late 20s. She’s young, has a great job and has the whole world at her fingertips. And you can tell she’s just glowing with life. She’s also my sister and incredibly supportive.

When I decided I want to do this – to help women see the beauty already there within themselves – she thought it was great. With no plans at all, she became my first glamour portrait session in Portland.

Glamour has such an interesting cultural definition about it. The 80’s and 90’s definition of glamour somehow entrenched neon and soft focus in our minds when we hear that word. That is not at all what I’m doing here. This is all about letting down walls and showing who you really are. This is real beauty, no filter required. She embraced everything I asked of her, gave me all that and more.
