Beautiful Women


Title: Practical + Quirky

My perspective on life has much to do with how my mother and five older sisters raised me. So hands down, I’ve always been surrounded by some amazing women. But I have to admit by working on this collection of portraits, I’ve met so many talented, down-to-earth and beautiful women. It truly reflects on the many levels that women in our society and worldwide are very much under-appreciated. I hope any women reading this post whether young or old knows just how beautiful, wonderful and much-loved they are. The women a part of this series have granted me this rare opportunity to showcase a diverse landscape in particular young women here in the Seattle area.

P.S. I wanted to give a shout out to Naomi Wachira for making time in her busy schedule to be a part of The Core Collection. Here’s a plugin to this incredibly talented Singer/Songwriter based in Seattle but making a name for herself worldwide. Her song  “I Am Women” is such an inspiration to me…… go figure!!
