What makes you feel beautiful?, is my biggest inspiration.

Founded in 1998 when I wanted to honor clients of mine each month just for being. Women like my colleagues, friends, clients and family are all wonderful women who have empowered my life.

Also the women who may not know that they have encouraged and empowered my existence through there walk in life are people like the great

Maya Angelou, Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson, Oprah Winfrey and  Frida Kahlo. and so many more.  I wanted to find a way to give back and always wanted to do something special to honor all women.

I thought by offering to do a complementary beauty photo-shoot and makeover of my most inspiring clients, would be a nice way to honor them. They would come in and see their beautiful pictures from their photo session framed and hung on the walls of my business. As part of their gift they got lots of copies!

That went well so after a few years of doing that I asked women to share with me what made them feel beautiful? from the inside and if I could share their answer on my website?

Since then hundreds of women and counting have shared their thoughts on inner beauty, "what makes them feel beautiful" and have had their beauty photo-shoots for free. All published here, an online website about inner beauty. It really has evolved and morphed into a great healing movement for thousands including myself. Through this journey I want to reach billions of hearts with the message of self-love. It's possible. 

Once a woman becomes "beauty of the month" for WMYFB  and is honored with her own beauty spread, she's then considered a spokes model for inner beauty. The spokes models help by speaking and being a part of my women's empowerment events, and with other nonprofit organizations that are geared toward the health and well-being of women.

What Makes You Feel Beautiful, was create to empower, encourage and inspire women to realize their self worth and inner beauty. This is important to me because my childhood was difficult. I was a child that was bullied and a survivor of incest and rape. I managed to persevere and overcome many struggles and challenges, I give thanks to the woman who helped me discover my inner beauty.

Because of the love and encouragement I have received throughout my life, mainly from other women, I've become a healthy person mind, body, and spirit.


For most of the shoots in the passed I have done the hair, makeup, styling and photography. 

What Makes You Feel Beautiful is something that I not only feel passionate about but driven to do.
