Kim knows that one’s body image is a deeply personal thing. Many weren’t comfortable with how they saw themselves. Many of her clients, however, felt empowered when seeing the beauty in their portraits. She now tries to use every session with every client to show them their beauty and what their loved ones see every day.
Nowhere is the dynamic of self body image more important than in the psyche of a young woman. Kim began approaching middle schools to see if she could use her art and photography to plant positive seeds in the minds of tween and teen girls.
She now gives interactive presentations to girls at schools like St. Catherine’s Richmond Academy, and others. She teaches skills to deflect negative messages, and tools for recognizing the beauty in all of us. She finishes with posing tips and camera secrets that reveal that beauty.
When Kim photographs young women, she has the client submit a short essay on beauty and confidence. She and her Dream Team discuss the essay with the client, and the end result is an amazing portrait of a beautiful teen blossoming into a beautiful woman, allowing them to know their TRUE beauty.
