Some Background

 

Behold.Her, a portrait and conversational event series, 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.  

The series has grown from a monthly photography project to an ecosystem of active participants who have been helped in recognizing sexual trauma in their childhood, confront depression, discover self-love, understand the importance of personal identity, and connecting with women to cultivate new friendships. Each topic is geared towards breaking through the bullshit that women in our society tend to throw at each other out of fear of betrayal, jealousy, or personal insecurities.  

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.

You may not know how to love yourself and you may not know how to forgive yourself, but walk into a community that will show you that you’re worth it. And if you have trouble knowing where those people are, make time to recenter and evaluate why you’re doing what you’re doing and value those who value you for what you bring to the table, on good or bad days.

The space moves, it has no singular location, but in this space stories are not interrupted by the tap of a texting conversation, the din of a hushed phone call in the corner or a group cliqued together. Instead, there is an embrace that befalls all who enter the space, one that is open and inclusive and warm...

I try not to jump into anything that’s too trendy,” she said. “A lot of people want to talk about self-care. Well, what about self-care? We have enough people who talk about that already, what about everything else?

Setting photography aside, I’ve witnessed and experienced as a woman, the toxic insecurities and self doubt caused not only by our minds but the people around us. With that being said, the older I got the more I hoped the cattiness, the two facedness, or the bitterness would end...

"I really focused on what needed to be gained from these intimate gatherings. I started to reflect on how difficult it has always been to have friendships with women. [ Which is odd] because women are always craving a connection with other women."

 Love and forgive yourself. You know what’s best for you. You know the signs of fatigue. You know when you’re being used. You may not know how to love yourself and you may not know how to forgive yourself, but walk into a community that will show you that you’re worth it...

Is there such thing as work-life balance? We  can’t ignore that our personal life seeps into our business life. What happens in our personal life is usually what has us step out to create our business, good or bad, those influences are there.
