As much as everyone around you believe that you are beautiful, the only opinion that matters is your own. That's why you're here right?
I know it must feel a little weird planning for what feels like a LUXURY. We are constantly told that we are not good enough. That we, as women have to live up to such a high unrealistic beauty standard. We have to be perfect, put together but look natural while doing it. To put in "effort" but not that much or we're too self-absorbed. You have to love yourself but not too much or we're considered conceited.
However you're feeling about your body - My studio is a safe space. You're free to express and be who you are authentically without judgement. Because everything that you are in this moment, is enough.
Together, we create beautiful photography experience that will change your life. Having your uniqueness captured through an artists perspective really empowers you to see how beautiful you truly are.
Meet the Photographer
As a Filipino-Canadian, who grew up with strict conservative parents, I know what it feels like to struggle with your personal appearance and sexual expression. Self-Love is a life long practice that takes work. That’s why I've made it my mission to empower femmes like you, to feel comfortable in your own skin.
Believe me, I get it
“Emmeline is wonderful to work with! It was my first photography session and Emmeline made it relaxing and easy. She asks you if you are comfortable, demonstrates how to pose, has fun with you throughout your entire session start to finish. Highly recommend her to anybody!”
