Standing up for yourself was terrifying.
Accepting and loving who you see in the mirror seemed impossible.
Being vulnerable and trusting was scary.
Look at all you have overcame and become.
You have made it out of the darkness.
Let your light shine.
Celebrate this life milestone with empowering portraits of yourself.
"John will listen to your story and make a work of art out of it. He is amazing as a person and a photographer."
" When he started sharing some of the shots he was getting during shoot, at one moment I just started crying with joy. "
"Recently I've tried being a little more open to new experiences... John made me feel at ease right from the beginning. His passion for what he does is as obvious as his talent. "

"Not only does John know how to get the perfect shot, but he also makes his customers feel at ease while working with them. He is a great photographer and even better person."
"Creative, innovative and so easy going, he makes you feel like you are working with someone you have always known."

"It was easy to be natural around John and not feel "fake". He has a knack of posing his subjects so they appear natural and at ease (which I was). The photos he provided are excellent!"
"I’ve been following John’s work for a couple years and even then the final product of my photo shoot far exceeded my expectations. "

Seeing a wonderful photograph of yourself can boost your confidence on days when you do not feel like you're up for all of the challenges in front of you.
My heartfelt reason for wanting to discuss your photoshoot is to help provide you the gift of self-confidence. For much of my life I did not have the positive self-image that I do now.
That is why I am on a mission to help others feel empowered and self-confident.
In addition to my hundreds of portrait and headshot clients, some other places my pictures haveve been featured in are:
National Geographic, multiple Fortune 500 Companies, and some of the biggest names in music.
Let me prove that being in pictures doesn't have to be awful so we can show the world how incredible you are!
I believe in the power of sharing positivity and I would love to keep in touch with you.
One of the ways I do that is through my monthly(ish) newsletter, click below to sign up.
