Passion, Purpose and Reason


Where shall you seek beauty, and how shall you find her unless she herself be your way and your guide? And how shall you speak of her except she be the weaver of your speech?

Kahlil Gibran ~excerpt from On Beauty

I was excited to shoot Luisa on a new dramatic red backdrop. Red is such a symbolic color with so many associations: from Valentines, passion, and love to the stuff of life like fire trucks, stop lights and so much more. We see incarnations of red everyday.

Luisa is currently studying for her Associates Degree here in Santa Rosa and heading to Seattle Pacific in the fall. An accomplished and honored athlete, she captained the Volley ball team to State finals. A natural leader, she trains relentlessly to maintain her A game.

Sports drive her forward, and "nothing else makes me feel so rich or high on life other than music." 

Highlighting the natural beauty in all of our clients I always like to ask what beauty means to each one of them. Luisa says " Accepting and loving yourself is one of the most important things in life. You must love yourself before you can love someone else." 

What's not to love about this lady in red?
