A portrait series inspiring, empowering and celebrating women and
their incredible stories
CELEBRATING THE RESILIENCE, WISDOM AND BEAUTY OF
WOMEN THROUGH AN EMPOWERING PORTRAIT EXPERIENCE
The Worthy Woman Portrait Series is a photography project dedicated to empowering, elevating and uniting women through portraiture & conversation. My team and I are looking for 20 women to have their own incredible portrait shoot, and share their personal story. Each participant’s portrait and bio will be featured in a gallery style event at the end of the project, and each woman will be featured in our "Worthy Woman" magazine. This project seeks to explore the multi-faceted nature of being a woman, the meaning of true beauty and authenticity, and entering new eras of life. Explore the themes of finding ourselves, overcoming struggles, aging, self-value, and celebrating women from all walks of life.
Availability Is Limited To 20 Women
YOU ARE WORTHY OF SHOWING YOURSELF SOME LOVE!
ARE YOU READY?
You are invited to a transformative experience celebrating individuality, authentic beauty and helping women reconnect with themselves in the process. Acknowledge your worth regardless of your appearance, age, ethnicity, or life journey. Partake in self-discovery, exploration and self-expression - celebrate your accomplishments, triumphs and vulnerabilities. We believe in beauty that is not based on youth & perfection but rather beauty that is real, raw and honest. Beauty that speaks to courage to be yourself and to your unique self. You have permission to love yourself more, to celebrate who you are and how far you have come. You have permission to make more time for yourself, to listen to your inner voice more, to receive kindness, to feel seen, heard & valued.
Let's discuss how you want to be seen, how you want to be photographed. Sexy & sassy, professional & powerful, a combination of looks.... you are multi-faceted, and this is your time to shine. You will have access to our incredible hair & makeup team, and assistance on wardrobe selection & set styles prior to our shoot.

Why The Term "Worthy Woman?"
As a photographer, I have heard all the excuses we make to avoid getting in front of the camera. I've also never had a single woman in front of my camera who hasn't been critical of herself in some way. I've heard it all!
"I need to lose weight, then I'll book a shoot"
"Make sure you edit my _________ (insert body part)!"
"I'm too old to do a shoot like that"
"Those women look like models, I could never look like that."
We all have insecurities, I get it, I struggle with these thoughts too. But I also know how incredible an empowering photo shoot experience can be for any woman, no matter their age, weight, ethnicity, background, marital status, parental status, etc. I see women transform from shy & uncertain, to radiating confidence, right in front of my camera! I see them step into their power, and unapologetically own their boldness, take up space, and begin to embody the woman they have envisioned becoming. I know the potential of an empowering photo shoot experience, and I want every woman to experience it! The women I photograph are not models. They are everyday women who are ready to celebrate and invest in themselves, and who trust my team and I to take their hand and guide them through the process. We will discuss your favorite features, your least favorite features, flatter the things you love, and hide things that you don't want to showcase as much. We're all on our own journey of true self-acceptance & self-love.
Let me tell you... You are WORTHY of having this experience, WORTHY of owning beautiful portraits of yourself, and WORTHY of taking the time and space to be celebrated! With professional hair and makeup (full glam, or super natural), wardrobe styling, gorgeous lighting, and posing that flatters your body in the best way... you'll be looking and feeling your best.
WHEN YOU SEE THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF REFLECTED IN PORTRAITS, YOU CONNECT WITH HER, EMBODY HER, AND BECOME HER.
Hi! I'm Kayle!
Photographing women was a no-brainer for me, especially when I realized the impact I could make for others who might relate to my journey. I carried self-destructive thought patterns and limiting beliefs from my past that no longer served me. I had low self-esteem, body image issues, and truly no voice for the longest time, and didn't understand my worth. I suffered from feeling inadequate, while also knowing I had so much to offer this world if I could just overcome the things holding me back.
Now, after a long (and ongoing) journey of healing, soul work, and truly finding my own self-value... I'm stronger, less apologetic, I don't live life to please others... and I'm closer to knowing my purpose on this beautiful planet. I know I'm meant to give people a safe space be seen and heard, and to be part of their journey of healing and growth. I want women to feel beautiful and empowered through their own portrait experience, and truly see themselves the way they are ready to show up in the world. You are WORTHY of experiencing your highest potential.
I would be honored to share this experience with you!
What's Included, and How Much?
I want every woman to be able to join me on this journey. For that reason this experience is being offered at special rate of $550.
