The Power of Truly Seeing Others with Stormy Solis and Tessa Rae
As photographers, we sometimes focus on the technical side of photography, the styling, or the trends - but if we would hold space for our clients & really open up ourselves to be able to truly see them - it would change our life, our work & our relationships completely. If we understood the gift we have, if we could grasp the magnitude and importance of just being available & open to our clients and how powerful and life changing that can be- magic would truly happen. So if you are someone who really wants to connect, tell meaningful stories and truly help your clients feel seen for who they are - this episode is for you.

Tessa Kozłowski (Tessa Rae Photography)
"Let life break you wide open, that's where the golden light is." Photography has healed my soul in ways I can't put into words. This camera in my hands and the people in front of me have forever changed my life. It is a gift to forever preserve the moments when we are stripped bare, and all we have left to give is what’s held in the deepest corners of our hearts. We are here to live. To bring forth our softness, our sweetness, the parts of us that are wonderfully and recklessly divine. To embrace our humanity and give this world a loving energy so strong, it will stretch out for generations. This life is a gift. All the eyes my eyes have met, all the places my feet have touched, and all the beautiful strangers I get to dance under sunsets with.

Woof, I hear you. As a mama of 5 and a family photographer for over 10 years, I know what it's like to wrangle rowdy kids—and get lots of stunning photos of them (even if they aren't too crazy about the idea of a photo shoot). I'll walk you through EXACTLY what you need to know about connecting with families and kids so that they want to participate—and so that you can get high-quality, authentic photos, no matter what.
