Preview | Van | Glamour and Contemporary Portraits | San Jose, CA

I absolutely love when my craft goes beyond me and makes someone smile, makes them feel inspired, and helps remind a woman that she is stunning simply because she is herself. 

Photographing the lovely Van felt like it was an afternoon spent with a beautiful friend who absolutely rocked that inner model. Van is not only one of the nicest, most down-to-earth women around, but she's also a wife, the proud mother of 2, and a driven and passionate entrepreneur, serving as founder of Tempo Bicycles

I'm so excited to share a sneak peak into Van's photo session below - there are definitely  more lovely images to come, so stay tuned!

Many thanks to Kat Tinney for the styling of Van's hair and makeup!

What Is Beauty?

What beauty is not:

1. One figure type
2. A label of clothing
3. The same hairstyle everyone has
4. Your height
5. Your weight
6. The length of your legs
7. The size of your feet
8. The size of your breasts
9. The money you flaunt
10. The amount of make up  you do or do not wear

So, then, what exactly is beauty?
