Behold.Her, started as a portrait and conversational event series. It has created a welcoming and challenging space for women to experience personal breakthroughs and discover true threads of relationships beyond professional interests. Behold.Her events are unapologetically breaking barriers and normalizing stigmatized conversations.
Each curated event focuses on developing self worth and challenging women to not retreat to their comfort zone. No phones are allowed at ANY of the events and they make another rule to not share who you work for or what you do. This is intentional so that women who are participating in a private event or public happy hour, practice on listening and building new relationships.
In a year, the brand has developed partnerships with local businesses, many of them female-owned, which have positively contributed to the local economy and amassed an extensive list of collaborators.
This project series has captivated a community of women and celebrates its diverse racial, cultural, religious, and sexual orientation backgrounds. We’re proud to have photographed and interviewed over 200 women in the first year. So far, this series has provided many women in Washington, D.C. a place to find acceptance, beauty, depth, and understanding.
