Life can be hard at times as we are faced with our own personal struggles; struggles that rob us of our natural sparkle and joy and upend life as we know it. And as you battle your way through each day, the person that you used to be feels ever further away; but that is where photography has power.

Something as simple as a portrait session and photos can have a positive impact of how you see yourself and show you the sparkle you thought was gone forever; a beacon of strength and hope for better days to come.

Being able to help Madelien find her sparkle and joy again after a difficult period was a special experience for us both.
