Portraits to Reflect & Transform
"Oh Janise...this is so beautiful! I cried watching it. I shared it with one of the veterans that comes to my Wednesday class and he was amazed by the intensity of it. Well done! I'm going to share it on my Facebook and website. Thank you for your beautiful vision." Susie
Portraits to Reflect & Transform
and Gain deeper Understanding
Susie asked the question:
what does it mean to be worthy?
She gave me permission to share this visual meditation with you.
I hope you enjoy!
Take your portrait experience to a new and deeper level through Portraits to Transform.
Because of my love of nature, quiet contemplative time and journaling that I’ve done for years; I understand the way nature has enabled me to connect with all my senses in a fully present way and also connect to my spiritual essence and the Divine.
I’ve had questions that have been answered through this time; insights into solutions; as well as next steps to take when I’m working or cultivating my dreams. I’ve found nature to be quite healing as well. It’s like Earth and Heaven embrace you in whatever you’re trying to understand on a deeper level. For me, nature is my studio; I love capturing memories and creating stories with others and providing a full experience which really goes beyond the photography. I’ve had so many people; families, brides and grooms and people whose portraits I’ve captured, tell me “Janise this is a wonderful experience – we had so much fun, it’s like an adventure.” And…yes it is an adventure into the beauty and wonder of nature, while you’re feeling joy and understanding what you desire on a deeper dimension.
I am now offering these Portraits to Transform packages personalized for you. This can be created individually or for an intimate group of people. I'm happy to brainstorm with you about your goal, question or intention. We'll then choose a place which resonates with you in the Sedona area. Through quiet time in nature you reflect and gain insights, which you’ll journal about briefly. As you enjoy these new insights there will be images in nature you’ll be drawn to, sometimes as a metaphor to answer a question and provide insight. I’ll capture images of you for this portrait as well as other visual prompts you enjoy during your journey. You may even want to capture some of the images with your smartphone.
When our photography is complete, I will then create a visual guided meditation with music that resonates with you, so you will be able to enjoy this personalized meditation when you return home and can use it regularly to help you answer additional questions and gain insights. As well, I will create a visual journal for you, so you may write your insights and again connect with these visual memories (or living mandalas) to continue to grow in your understanding; cultivate the next steps of your dreams or reflect on the healing and wonder that is taking place in your life.
What's great about this process is that it is personalized to you and for you! I am also happy to help you create your own visual meditations to enable you to move forward with your goals, answering questions or simply creating stories about your wonderful adventures.
Karen's Inspiring Story of Preserverance.
"The story I'm trying to tell is about Life's Journey. I'm wanting photos on a mountain top like I've seen in your wedding gallery.
And photos on forest paths, walking across the river, and the like.
These are spectacular!!
Looking at the photos brings me back there and
I almost feel the energy even more through the photos since I'm in a quiet place! I LOVE IT!!!
Oh - thank you!
I'm so excited and I'm really proud of what we did.
What if you really felt and understood that you were important and that you have a unique gift or gifts to share with the world that would make your life run more smoothly; and in a more joyful way. Maybe you know what your gifts are and I celebrate you; maybe you know some of your gifts, yet you don't know how to apply them.
I have a wonderful portrait offering, which really is about celebrating you. Whether you are celebrating something you've accomplished, have questions about where your gifts may fit in, need insights into your direction, or how to move forward with your dreams...I feel this may be something fulfilling for you.
It's about setting an intention, and centering yourself through meditation. We then meander through a natural place in Sedona, which resonates with you. I capture images of you and also images which may call to you in nature. As well, I have you journal insights you receive along the way; snip-its if you will, that you can go back to later.
I then have you choose your favorite images, together with music which speaks to your intention and create a visual meditation that you can continue to use to gain further insights into your process of transformation.
This is completely confidential unless you give me permission to use your images and intention.
Sylvia really enjoyed her process and also found different elementals in nature together with a vision she received during her quiet time that she wanted me to include in her visual meditation
In Sylvia's own words, "what a fabulous memory of an extraordinary day - one that will surely stand out as a highlight of 2017. You also captured the spirit of transformation so beautifully as my youngest daughter said when she saw the image of my hair blowing in the wind...Wow you look so beautiful and free. It feels like a new person almost - a healed person. What a special gift you have to share and offer."
I wanted to create a visual meditation of my Tuscany journey, so you would have an idea of what this process is about. When I had the opportunity to experience this for myself, I could really see and feel the value of this process, in a way I would love to share with you.
As well, please check out my journal, as an example of what we could do for your portrait at Blurb
