I know all about the hard work you put in to be in front of my lens.
The passion that keeps you up at night and powering through your days, dedicated to your vision, all the while balancing commitments to family/friends/health.
Photography is my medicine. It heals & transforms.
It lifts the limitations we place on ourselves and that others place on us. I’ve experienced this healing both in front of the lens and behind it. You’ve passed through your own dreams, experiences, obstacles and challenges to get here. Somewhere in that sea of darkness and light, there’s resonance, a kind of shared ground that inspires your audience to transform with you and crave more of your work. I know what it took to get here, so I take photos that honour all of it. Powerful trumps pretty.
MORE ABOUT STACE
Working with Anastasia was an organic flow of creativity and joy. Not only were the photos beautiful, but they captured my essence. I am grateful to have such authentic images that have helped me to express the nature of my offerings and continue to build a business that reflects my values and desire for each person to experience their innate power, creativity and radiance.
"The day of shooting with you was such a beautiful & memorable experience. It was equal parts exciting and ease full. The enthusiasm I felt from your whole team, was so genuine and loving, it made me feel so held and seen and safe; it allowed me to just be me. I loved the depth of our conversation, it made me want to just hang out with all of you and drink wine and talk about epic shit all night.
The images you captured are so divine, I am speechless when I see them, and sometimes I cry a little, not gonna lie. You are such a beautiful human and it felt so good just being around you. Thank you for all of it."
Anastasia and her team really did see me and make it easy and fun to be seen. Now that I know it can be this way, there is no going back. I want to do a Women's Series photoshoot every year. Go for it! You won't be disappointed.
"Flow of creativity & joy."
