Today Audrey Christensen of Hey Be Fab shared some photos from her recent headshot session, along with a spot-on “That’s what I’m going for!” review of our time together on her Facebook page,
"Ashley Thalman is an amazing photographer and a dream to work with. She made me feel so comfortable and allowed my spunk to shine through with these amazing photographs…”
Audrey did all the work, don’t let her fool you. It takes a lot of work to show up self-assured. It takes a lot of work to use your artistic voice, to show up at Farmer’s Market and Winter Market and to teach classes and to sweat your ass off in the heat of all that. It takes work to love yourself, it takes love that is stronger than the war inside us that is hell-bent to shut us down. It takes a lot of fight and tenderness to say what she shared yesterday about her self-love journey. I want to share these words before you scroll down to see these really kick-ass images of her. As we fiercely focus to raise the power of the feminine force on our planet, we will see and do see, over and over, that one woman’s success provides a rising effect for an entire generation, community, and species of human beings on this tender mother crust. Read this and feel the invitation she offers. It really is why she is so damned “fab”:
“My whole life I have always been told that I am too much. Too loud, too in your face, too over the top. Stop being sooo dramatic Audrey, calm down, shhhhhh.
But then I found people, a community of people who celebrated my over exuberant personality…
They asked for me to be loud and challenged me to be even louder. Demanded that I told my truth and celebrated my out of the box persona.
Once I leaned into who I was including my over the top, always over sharing, in your face person I am.
My world changed.
I became free.
Free to be fully me.
Friends, this photo that @ashleythalmanphoto took of me at her amazing studio @thatsultraviolet embodies every ounce of who I am.
I see her, the women I am and I believe that she is a damn fine bad ass go getter not stoping world changer and this, this is her time to shine.
Watch me. I ain’t stopping anytime soon.”
