“I’m the owner of Ferne Boutique in Bay City, Michigan and married with 4 fur babies (no human babies). I’m a lover of travel, wine, food …and I love making a difference in the community.

I was last photographed for headshots and wanted to do a For Real shoot because it’s empowering to all women. It is hard to be confident sometimes when we are always being told to be someone else in society. When I saw the photos on Instagram of other women without makeup, it really made me want to do the shoot since it is such a unique concept.

When viewing the images (during the Reveal), it was a little hard for me at first but I remember that my skin was looking pretty good that day (lol) and I would love them! I hope more women will do the shoot after they see how naturally beautiful we all are in these photos!
