“Being able to feel safe with other people is probably the single most important aspect of mental health; safe connections are fundamental to meaningful and satisfying lives.”

Storytelling Branding Photography – The Healing Journey

I’m always curious about people’s life paths, especially when it leads them to doing what they love.  Working with healers, I’ve noticed some  common elements in their life path.  They often:
  • experience glimmers of their innate talents and gifts at an early age
  • may set out on a corporate or more structured career path, many times requiring a left-brained approach to their work
  • experience some sort of catalyst – for example, a health crisis, burnout, exhaustion or dissatisfaction – that inspires, or forces them to do things differently
  • begin to explore new approaches to healing and finding joy and purpose in their lives. These often incorporate their innate talents that may have been lying dormant for many years.
  • feel moved to share their lived experiences and healing modalities with others to serve and uplift them.
In our branding session, we wanted to not only capture the many ways that Ami works in her sessions, but also parts of her own healing journey that are echoed by many of the clients she sees.  We wanted to create an entire suite images for Ami’s website and social content that illustrate her story and share her offerings with warmth, respect and compassion.
Enjoy this glimpse into Ami’s world,
