Tell me your story:

I’m a mum to four boys who has worked in a mainly a male dominated profession. I've stepped out on my own, embracing my life for what it is and being at peace with myself on this journey of new experiences.

What did you think of your day at the studio?

I wasn't sure what to expect but all the girls made me feel so welcome. It was a wonderful personal experience. I felt good about myself. Janiece showed me the back of the camera during the shoot and I was blown away by it.  Janiece truly captured the essence of me.

Janiece says…

It was so lovely to spend the day with this beautiful, strong, intelligent woman. Nelly's warmth and positive way of looking at things certainly shines through.

With love,
