I'm Vanessa and I'm a portrait photographer.
There are very special times in each of our lives. Times that we recognize warrant celebration. Graduations, births, anniversaries - milestones. And then there are the other times. The in-between times. The hard times. The times that we feel invisible, or wish that we were. I understand the power of not feeling good enough. Of not seeing yourself clearly. But it is my job to make you understand and believe that you are worthy of being seen and of being remembered. I want to take a portrait that will honor your existence in this life. It doesn't matter if you think you're not thin enough, or not young enough, or not whatever enough. You are enough.
This experience is about capturing a moment in your life that your loved ones will be able to share long after you're gone. It's about celebrating who you are right now, in this moment. I want you to see the value in having an extraordinary portrait of yourself. One day the people who love you will look for photos of you. What will they find? Exist in photos for them and for you. Celebrate your life now.
