The tween and teen years…. a transition from childhood to adulthood. As a mother of three kids with my oldest being girls that currently going through this awkward stage in their lives. In them I see so much potential and opportunity. I see just how beautiful and unique they truly are as people. It breaks my heart that they may not see that in themselves.


In the age of social media, it’s harder than ever for parents to help their children believe in themselves and love and cherish who they are as people. Emotional health and well-being are vital to help our kids feel successful and create positive change that lasts. It hurts to see our children doubt themselves and I want to help empower them and show them that they can do anything they dream of and to accept their unique, beautiful self.


With my UPLIFT campaign, I want to give tweens and teens the gift of confidence. I want to show them how beautiful, unique and strong they are on the inside as well as the outside. If I can help them FEEL that during a 2 hour session and then they can remember how they felt each time they see their beautiful portrait in their home, then I want to do that.
