Minneapolis - July 2019

What inspired this photoshoot?

In May 2019 I took a big leap and signed up for a year long retreat-based coaching program with Darla LeDoux to support my business and overall well-being at a deeper level. I had a sign so clear pointing me in this direction, and it’s one I haven’t regretted in the least. As part of the program, we have 3 in person retreats. Our first retreat took place in Minneapolis. It’s such a fun city filled with many beautiful bridges and old factories. I had an opportunity to do a photoshoot with Darla’s wife, Kimmi. I jumped at the chance.

How did you find your outfit?

I was not prepared for this photoshoot in terms of clothing. I had arrived straight from Europe at the retreat and aside from the dresses I wore in Paris, I mostly had yoga clothes. And that is what I wear 90% of the time, so it was actually very fitting. This photoshoot captured my true essence in many ways.

How did you feel during and after the photoshoot?

I had so much fun with this photoshoot. It was a group event with 3 other women in my program being photographed alongside me. I felt very light-hearted, playful, and full of spirit. It’s one of the funnest shoots I’ve had to date. Adding a group dynamic makes it so much more playful.

I had fun styling myself in this shoot. I kept my makeup pretty subtle, yet vibrant with red lips and curled my hair to be a bit more playful.
