Our unique experiences are the source of our individual beauty. Sharing our

experiences strengthens us. We are stronger for understanding each other.


It has been my experience that being photographed is difficult for many women.

Regardless of profession, economic status or age, I often detect a sense of

emotional nakedness among my clients; that being photographed is a self-

indulgence that is somehow not deserved; that a woman feels she is not worthy

of being captured on film. That somehow, she is not…enough.


I designed The Gardenia Project to focus on the incredible beauty each woman

possesses. To share the truth that each of us has a story that is uniquely ours,

and that our stories – our experiences – are a bond that can offer each of us

strength. Let’s hold each other up through the realization that every story is an

amazing story, and deserves to be told.
