I’m honored to introduce you to a remarkable woman whose story embodies the very essence of our mission: self-reflection, self-care, and the unapologetic celebration of one’s own beauty and strength.
Meet Kristen, a woman who personifies the idea that self-love and self-care are the secret ingredients to feeling glamorous, fun, strong, and powerful at any age. Kristen recently graced our studio with her presence for a photoshoot that was a soul-nourishing experience, designed purely for HER. Her story is a testament to the incredible resilience and beauty that can emerge from life’s challenges, and she’s confidently striding into her 40s with her head held high.
We often forget that to be the best for others, we must first be the best for ourselves.
As Kristen stepped into our studio, her spirit filled the room. Her desire for the photoshoot was clear – it was her way of saying, “I am here, I am beautiful, and I am worth celebrating.” In a world that often pressures women to conform to certain standards and expectations, Kristen’s choice to embrace self-love was nothing short of revolutionary.
Always remember that you are deserving of joy and love, of celebration, and of taking a moment to be your best self.
Q&A’s with Kristen
Who are you as an individual?
Strong, independent, motivated, caring, compassionate, intelligent woman who puts family above anything else! I love to travel, dance, bake and watch hockey.
How did you life change after turning 40?
I feel like I am in a totally different body. A body that is stubborn, uncomfortable, unattractive, and doesn’t like to cooperate. I have very few days where I feel like myself. My anxiety has increased significantly and there are days when I feel very sad for no reason.
If you could tell your younger self one piece of advice, what would it be?
Don’t let others bring you down. I chose a different career path because I was told to do so. I also did not have the confidence to pursue the career I really wanted. I love what I do, but I will always regret not going with my initial dream.
What advice would you give to other women about life?
Life is what you make it. Do what makes you happy and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
