Last year my friend Dr. Amy Davis invited me to document the rites of passage for 10 beautiful women. This is a very unique and very special journey for the women that Amy and her team invited into. I was honored to have been invited back to do a new set of portraits for 18 new women before they completed this year long process of stepping into their identity as women.
Here’s an excerpt from the women’s Affirmation of Identity –
“We will continue on this journey called womanhood, realizing our identity through relationship with God, self, others and creation….We will continue devoting ourselves not only to other humans, but to the world God has given to us, caring for the earth in the ways available to us, and seeking to steward the earth in a way that opens possibilities for a richer life for all.”
It was an incredible honor for me to be able to take these photos of each of you. I hope that you will see a true glimpse of how beautiful you are. Thank you for letting me witness such a personal part of your journey.
