By trade, I’m a portrait and boudoir photographer. My personal philosophy is “An empowered woman is a powerful woman.” And it’s my goal, with this blog and my photography, to empower, encourage and strengthen any woman that crosses my path. I believe that women who are confident and have the support of other women, are an unstoppable force. This is my manifesto.
Aside from being a photographer, I’m also a beauty & lifestyle blogger (obviously, lol) with a passion for the arts, food & travel. My style tiptoes between grudge glam and edgy chic and I love a fly pair of shoes. I love to laugh and I’m always excited about life and it’s possibilities residing in the Washington DC/Maryland area.
About The Blog
I live in a house full of men with my husband & three sons. As the only girl, I’m certainly outnumbered and I originally created OhYesItsV (formerly Luxe Beauty / formerly formerly Pretty Girl Rock) in July 2010 as a means of deviation from all things “men and boys”. Despite the fact that I’ve rebranded more than I care to admit, this blog is about more than looking “pretty”. It’s a platform to share thoughts and encourage discussion on all things beauty & life-related with a focus on personal growth and women’s empowerment. This blog features my thoughts and experiences, hair and makeup tutorials, product reviews and style advice. Take a look around! I hope you enjoy your visit!
