About Your Powerful Goddess Photo Shoot  

“What makes you happy? What do you love best about your life?” These are the questions that open our conversation.  A Powerful Goddess  photo shoot is a celebration of gratitude for the strengths and talents that make you the unique woman that you are. It is a fun and memorable experience of playing dress up (or undress, if you prefer!) and stepping into the sandbox of creativity–winks, giggles and lots of laughter included. Let us create a legacy to capture the richness of your life’s many facets as career woman, mother, daughter, sister, friend, lover and goddess.  

This five generation portrait inspires my work.  I’m the screaming baby on my mom’s lap as she sits serenely beside her stoic mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.  The photograph leaves me curious:  Who are these women aside from being wives and mothers?  What were their joys, dreams, desires, fantasies?  How different (or similar) are we in our journey of womanhood?


At your Powerful Goddess photo shoot, we will play with a range of moods from dreamy to steamy, adorable to reckless, trying each one like a change of costume, a different persona: a star of Old Hollywood, Super Model or Heroine, Goddess, every man’s fantasy, or the woman next door–with a touch of mystery.  Every pose is a beautiful expression of a woman’s confidence and power to be present and alive to all parts of herself, peeling back layer after layer, offering clues to her many, and often hidden, selves.

Give your daughter (and the rest of womankind) a glimpse of your unique power to make the most of what you’ve got, that they might take the cue to be their own  biggest fan, to claim the freedom to be true to their own self, to honor their own joys and desires. Your Powerful Goddess portraits leave a legacy imparting strength, confidence and trust that whatever makes a woman happy always leads her home to her own truth and power!

You are beautiful.

You are powerful.

You are more than enough!

    Hi Sharky, I had been meaning to comment about your site for sometime now. It took the photos of the “Elusive Beauty ” to push me. It is an interesting metamorphosis your site has gone thru. I like it and hope you will still write about your family, travels and the inspiring topics with the same flair that always makes me think or smile and laugh. I enjoy the photos you include. I am especially a lover of B&Wphotography. I think it tells a detailed story of the subject. I also love your self portrait. You are as beautiful as Ms Elusive but not so elusive. I like the apron photo…shows your humorous side…:) Being the wrong sex I will most likely not be one of your models…a good thing! The best of luck with what I discribe as “your works”, whats next, the book? I want a autographed copy!

      Dear Mountain,

      Reading letters like yours is the only way I want to start my mornings! Thank you so much for your bright ideas and appreciation.
      Your kindness, good taste and intelligence are evident in your writing. I know quite a few single ladies who appreciate such qualities.

      And yes, more of me will be on this blog bit by bit… a book is definitely in the horizon of possibilities!

      Keep spreading love and laughs…

      PS There is no such thing as the wrong sex. 😉

    Hello Sharky – I love your work . I would only suggest that you eliminate the constriction of ” wife and mother in her 40’s ” demographic from your copy and stress the inherent glamour and sexiness of women of all ages . You would still be attracting the same niche market , without the unecessary limitation imposed by extremely limiting parameters .

    Wishing you continued success …
