Dr. Deb Kern- Shakti Sisterhood

What Deb says:

I’m not gonna lie. I was terrified to hire Anastasia because I was afraid I wasn’t pretty enough, thin enough, young enough, photogenic enough to warrant hiring such a talented professional photographer. But what I discovered was that Anastasia is more than a photographer. She’s a midwife.  She sees with the eye behind the eyes, listens with the ear behind the ear and then compassionately delivers you into the world through images that capture the bold, beautiful truth of who you are. Just like a good midwife, she tirelessly encourages you, coaxing just the right expressions, movements and angles…and she makes sure you’ve had rest, food and water J   I’ve never had so many powerful images to choose from to help me share my work with the world and I’m deeply grateful.
