I like to say that I grew up in a therapist’s office, which is a simplification of the truth. My mom, being the healer she is, and my stepdad, being the hypnotherapist he is, couldn’t help but influence the lens I see the world through. More literally, though, I am no stranger to a therapist’s office. Growing up, I was always in and out of therapy, and I am so grateful for the lessons I learned there.
When I was young, I vacillated between wanting to be a therapist, a photojournalist, or a fashion designer. All of these things came true in their own way. By trade, I am a photographer, but I remain passionate about the healing arts. (I also love putting together a fabulous outfit in the morning, though I am no fashion designer.) Since I was a teenager, I have taken all of Deanna and Kirk’s courses. I enjoy watching the immediate effect that healing has, and I try to instill healing qualities into everything I do. As quite the busy body, meditation continues to help me all the time. I can’t wait for you to dig into the online resources we have created!
Session description: I work with small business owners, get to know their brand, and create dynamic visual content for their websites and social media. If you’re a small business owner and like the imagery on our website and in our classes, view my website to contact me (www.sofiaangelina.com).
I also use photography as a healing modality. For years, I have photographed myself to heal trauma of my own; I help others to do the same. A few years ago, I started what I call “The Body Beautiful Project,” in which I ask people to tell me something that makes them feel empowered. I then write what they tell me on their bodies, and photograph them, creating self-portraits of sorts.
