Photographing women is my passion and sharing their stories is slowly becoming my life’s purpose. In my line of work I come across women who are holding the fort for themselves and their families. Strong pillars of support in their community.

Anyone who knows Kimberly knows how passionate she is about helping teens and parents struggling with the adolescent journey, which at times, bewilders us. She is tenacious and does not fear taking risks; and perhaps, that is an invitation for others to take their personal Leap of Faith. Her burning desire is to equip teens with tools and processes to eliminate their limiting beliefs early when they are developing their sense of identity. She enjoys empowering them with new perspectives, which allows them to acknowledge their unique gifts and creativity. There is an artistic quality to all this with balancing respect, wisdom, choice, boundaries, and awareness.

“I attribute my self-confidence to conquering challenges throughout my life. Much like physical strength training, where muscles are slightly torn to trigger the repair process to build stronger muscles, dealing with hurdles—even failures—leads to resilience in the cognitive realm as well. As a side note, “failure” and “success” are just judgments.”

“My greatest gifts are inspiring others through compassion and respect of my own struggles. I allow myself space, alone time, or time out in nature to ignite my creativity and to acknowledge my intuitive awareness. This combination often inspires me to action and to more joyfully engage in the action steps.”

“Value ‘You’ more than any judgment from another person. Be kind to yourself. Allow yourself time to be in nature, for exercise, and tea. Be confident, be authentic, be courageous, and every morning ask, “What Glorious Adventure will I have Today?” Every evening, reflect upon at least three things for which you feel gratitude, and on those days when this may be difficult, gratitude for the sun shining or a butterfly is okay, too.”

“Don’t feel afraid or weak to request support. Many of us wait too long before requesting guidance. We can avoid unnecessary pain by asking for support, instead of thinking that we can muster through it. Yes, we can get through it, but allowing more ease by seeking support is an act of kindness to ourselves; it also gives others the opportunity to be grateful for being of help to someone else!”
