Beginning in 2016, The Awakenings Project began as a single affirmation image of the creator.  What started as a moment became a movement.

What do you use to write on us?

My chosen medium is waterproof eyeliner. Many women choose to wear their word on their skin for a day or two, but it can be removed with eye makeup remover and I do carry that with me.  I utilize a variety of waterproof, felt tip eyeliners and the liner I use will depend on the word and the location in which it will be written.

What do I wear? Should I bring anything?

You may choose to wear, or not wear, what you choose.  Due to the nature of black and white photography, participants wearing black may require a little additional time to ensure lighting is correct in the studio.   

As this is a photo focused on YOU, props are not encouraged, however many women may wear a scarf, piece of jewelry, etc that is symbolic and meaningful to them.   

Do I have to be nude?

Nope - you are in charge of what you choose to reveal or not reveal.  

What time should I arrive?

Most sessions take approximately 25-35 minutes., however some may take up to an hour.  Preparation instructions are provided upon sign up to help you get to your word.  This is often referred to as "soul work".   

Photography is often the calendar shuffle, so I ask that you please arrive on time or a few minutes early to ensure you are comfortable and prepared.  In the St. Louis area, I photograph in my home studio, so please be mindful that I also live here.    If you cannot make your appointment, please notify me prior to your session so that I may plan accordingly and examine rescheduling. 

Parking instructions and exact location will also be provided upon booking. 

Is there a cost and how do I pay you?

TAP is community built and community sustained.  Many provide a love donation (the average donation is $35-50).  Your donation helps offset the costs of time, travel, and supplies and also helps ensure everyone receives a printed copy of their image should they desire one.  

Cost will not prohibit your participation and all are welcome.  

I accept cash, PayPal, Venmo, and all major credit/debit cards.
