THIS IS ME CAMPAIGN FIRST STARTED around July 2019 and it is going strong. The main purpose of the campaign is to encourage and empower women who are in the age range of 30's, '40s to 60's by creating beautiful and powerful portraits showcasing their own unique beauty and strength. That no matter what their age, color, or body size to help remind them how incredible and extraordinary they are. 

What I love about doing this campaign is that these women have gone through so much in life and yet where they are now, they are fully loving and embracing in their journey. They are stronger than ever been and by sharing their story through this campaign, hopefully we can change, give hope to someone's life and make a positive impact to women who can use some positive encouragement. Each and every one of us have a beautiful and unique story that needs to be told and shared.

Each woman who are selected for the project gets to experience her own Magazine-style portrait session and be finally SEEN by her own self. Because it always started with YOU first.

THIS IS ME CAMPAIGN FEATURE: MONIQUE


Monique is one of the nicest person I had the pleasure of working with last year. Her personality is as beautiful as her smile is. PLEASE PLEASE STAY AND READ TOWARD THE END OF THIS BLOG.


"One day I will not be here for my 2 beautiful daughters and the majority of the time I am not in the pictures because I am behind the camera. I would love for them to have pictures of their mommy to cherish."


INTERVIEW WITH MONIQUE


Is there any advice you would like to share with others who struggle to see their own beauty?


Beauty is not always on the outside. Beauty can be the person you are & how you make others feel!


Tell me your story!


I am 33 years old and I have 2 young daughters and a son if still alive who would be 12. After my ex husband left me after my son died for another woman he told me I was damaged goods, therefore I have struggled with self esteem issues. My weight has recently gone up due to an injury I sustained from a student. I am getting married in October 2019 to a wonderful man and I really would love to feel beautiful in my own skin. He tells me I am beautiful but I keep hearing my ex's comment over and over.


A SIMPLE MESSAGE FROM JORGE WHO WAS MONIQUE'S FIANCE NOW HER OTHER HALF.


What do you like most about Monique? What makes her unique and special? “Oh my goodness where to begin. Monique is the strongest woman I have ever met, she has gone through a lot in her life but none of it has stopped her from reaching her goals. On the contrary she uses her experiences to do something that is truly unique in cases like hers, she helps others. She has an amazing heart that loves, she looks good opportunities to make this world a better place, one person at a time. And now she is going beyond just giving out "blessing bags" to the homeless she educated herself to provide hope to families going through what she did. She is an amazing mother! There is nothing she wouldn't do for her 3 kids, she always makes sure they know they are loved no matter what. She is raising two beautiful girls that will one day change this world because of the love, influence, and guidance she provides.

And then there's me. She loves me in a way I could have never imagined. A love that some people may never know. I feel humbled, honored, and at times unworthy of it. But I am truly grateful that she does love me.

What I love most about Monique is who she is, she is the most beautiful person I have ever known.

What makes her unique is the way she loves, she truly is my everything!” -Jorge A.
