“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”

I got fresh microblading done the other day by @justinmyworld_beauty and I’m super happy with how they look. My over plucked 90’s brows are gone! I had bushy brows as a kid and he gave them back to me! 😭 〰️These photos I just took outside with natural light, no filter. If u swipe -the last one is a before and after. I have nothing on my brows except the work he did. They will heal and I will get a touch up in a month and fill in what we need. ❤️ Go see him - and tell em’ Schlee sent ya! 😘DM me about price or just go follow him and make an appt!
“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.”

I love portraiture and consider it my specialty as a photographer. Of all the things I do with my camera, there is nothing I enjoy more than being one-on-one fully dropped in with a person, capturing who they truly are.

Today is National Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day!
Breast cancer occurs in 1 in 8 women. Women who have undergone a lumpectomy (partial breast removal) or a mastectomy (total breast removal) can have reconstructive breast surgery using a variety of surgical options including flaps, fat grafting and breast implants. Most women in North America are unaware of their options. Fortunately in Manitoba, patients are able to easily access this type of care .
Dr Islur is 1 of 3 Board Certified Cosmetic + Reconstructive Plastic Surgeons in Manitoba that offers this specialized care. He is an expert in Implant Based Reconstruction, Fat Grafting to the breast and Latissimus Dorsi Flap Reconstruction.
Be grateful for what you have ✨ but still working towards want you want 🙏
Happiness isn’t something you achieve when everything is perfect. It’s not the latest car or purse. It comes from making the most of what you already have. It comes from smiling in the rain, looking for the light in the darkness. Or even just having faith that the future will be better. Happiness is a mindset 🌸 #happiness#positivevibes
I've been up working past midnight all week but I'm still nothing but smiles tonight. Tomorrow I go to Vegas for a retreat sponsored by my mentor 💃🏼
I've had to work hard to get ready for it, but I don't regret a minute of it. I am one of FOUR girls that is being treated to a vacation with a professional photo shoot (with professional makeup 💁🏼), fancy dinners, business master mining, and working out with my girls 👯❤️#girlboss#motivation .
One of the things that excites me MOST about this retreat is the fact that I know that this time next year, I'll be treating MY team to a girl boss vacation 🙌🏼
That feeling when you’re waiting for your S.O./friend/hotel employee to untangle your necklaces because you just. can’t. anymore.✨
🛍 Hey #clevergirl ! Grab a #blingsling on cleverdesignsla.com and NEVER UNTANGLE (or wait for someone else to untangle😜) A NECKLACE AGAIN!
These types of shots aren't really my "thing". Most my skin bearing posts have me half awake, with my hair a mess and my face looking 🙈🙈🙈 since such posts are usually progress posts. It might be to the chagrin of some of you I don't post more pics like these but I get the impression that 99% of you totally are supportive of my family posts, product shout-outs and my less than glamorous progress pics and workout videos. THANK YOU!
I'm a self professed goody-goody and have been called a prude and this is much of why I usually don't try to create "thirst" with what I share (plus duuuuuh I'm married!! 💍). And, the PRIMARY reason why I don't share much pics like these is because I'm a MOM of a young man. I want him to see that the appeal of a woman first should come from her values, personality and intelligence and lastly from her physical appearance.
So yuuup you'll get a smattering of "these kind of posts" 🙈 because it's part of who I am as a woman 💁♀️, but ya gonna get a lot MORE posts full of my long essays, product shout-outs, no makeup and family. If you're new here and don't like that...oh well! 🤷♀️ But for the rest of you - you're cool cats in my book! 😎

“To know where you came from makes it easy to know where you’re going”-Quincy Jones
I couldn’t wait to graduate High School so I could finally leave the desert. I come from a small town in California. Indio? Like where is that? You might have heard of it by now. You know where Coachella the Music Festival is at? Well yeah that’s my hometown. It wasn’t always that popular or cool. Let’s not even talk about the summers... that heat is no joke. I left to college and really never looked back.
It wasn’t until I got older that I really appreciated where I came from. The fact that my parents are both immigrants and chose to leave their country to seek out the America dream runs in my blood. I am 1st generation Mexican-American and the first in my family to go to college. Let’s just say it wasn’t always an easy road. Life has had its ups and downs. Struggles that at one point seemed impossible to overcome. Though I lost my Father at a young age I’ll never forget how much he believed in me as a young child. It’s coming close to year that I lost my Mother as well, so let’s just say the past couple of years have been tough. Though I no longer have my parents here, I love going back to my hometown because it’s reminds me of them.
What keeps me pushing towards pursuing my dreams is remembering their sacrifice. Knowing everything they went through to give me, my brothers and sister a better life. I always knew they were proud of me, but I want to continue to make them proud.
They are my why. I don’t have kids or a family of my own now, but one day I hope to be able to give my kids everything my parents gave me and more.
Remembering where I come from reminds me of where I want to go. Though I live in a big city now. I will never forget where I came from. It keeps me humble 😊
I share this because we all have a story. We all come from somewhere. What is your story??
So this chubby little beauty keeps sneaking under the fence (how? Not to body shame but he’s SO chubby!) and running into the street! I’ve had to keep the kitties locked away which I hate to do because they get so sad and also we need them out patrolling the property and keeping the rodent population down. Definitely going to need to reinforce my fence.
