Beautiful, contemporary portraits by a custom, boutique photography studio.

What I say ……

I have enjoyed many achievements in my life and am grateful for each of them – even my failures because through them I grew and stretched. But aside from adopting my two daughters – nothing fills me with such excitement and sense of accomplishment and purpose as helping women transform their perception of themselves and find their true inner beauty, freeze it for them and present it to them as a gift to cherish their whole lives. When a client says to me “feeling beautiful today made me feel like I can conquer anything!!”I want to bow my head in reverent gratitude for being a part of this amazing process. Sometimes I wish I were filthy rich so I wouldn’t even have to charge for this (…but I’m not….just sayin’).

What humbles me the most is the trust my clients give me – to coax, ever so gently - their fragile, beautiful selves out and encourage it to bloom and embrace all its fullness and magnificence. It’s an amazing experience to be part of. The connection I have with my clients is sacred and makes the whole experience much more than just a photo shoot – much more than just taking a photograph.

Celebrating … beauty!

Lorie Johnson, psychic medium
Guest Occupation: psychic medium, clairvoyant, empath, channeler, automatic writer, aura reading, medical intuitive, shaman
Guest Biography:

Hello, my name is Lorie Johnson and I am a psychic medium. In addition to that, I am also a clairvoyant, empath, channeler, automatic writer, aura reading, medical intuitive, and shaman. I also have the ability to communicate with animals. I have many guides and guardians, including the seven Archangels and call upon them regularly to protect me whenever needed.

I have been seeing spirits since the age of two and had an experience at the age of six where I saw three spirits laying on cots. I was able to spell the burning flesh and assumed this was their way of telling me how they died. One spirit interacted with me and I later realized that this spirit was a guardian of mine.

When spirits come to me they take the form of silhouettes and I can see and speak to them. Sometimes they come to me seeking help wanting to get a message to a loved one that it is still living. These spirits see the light around me and know that they can trust me. I’ve even been told that spirits that are angry are scared of me because they know I am not afraid of them and I will not be intimidated…I see their truth.

When I do my readings for clients I have to tell them upfront that they cannot hide anything from me. I see it, hear it, and feel it. In order to help one unlock their Pandora’s Box I have to walk their life and uncover whatever secrets are hidden. Not everyone likes what they are told but what comes forward by their loved ones that have passed isn’t about me nor do I judge. I am a very blunt person. If I see it I say it. If they say it I tell it. I’m just the messenger and honestly, after it’s all over with I don’t even remember what is said. If I held on to all that I have seen and heard I would be living everyone’s life that I’ve ever read.

I have helped in many police cases dealing with missing children and runaways. I have a strong passion for helping kids and the elderly as these two groups have a hard time speaking for themselves.

I love my gifts and who I am. God made me this way for a reason and I will continue to use these gifts given to me by Him to help anyone that comes to me.

Terry Hollimon
Guest Occupation: Sports Analyst
Guest Biography:

Terry Hollimon also known as T-Holla, grew up with in an athletic family. Both him and his brothers played college football and his dad played professional football. Having a passion for acting and entertaining, his peers remembered him as a thespian in high school. With football being his number one passion, acting and entertaining would be considered his 1-A. His family fully supports the Barbershop Movement for what it represents and because they know how much entertaining and football means to him. His family considers it a blessing that Terry gets to enjoy doing what he loves for a living.

It was tough at first in the beginning to have people understand their vision and to see what they were talking about. They wanted to create a platform where they can talk about sports in a fashion where it is understandable to the average person. The average soccer mom can understand a football game better by listening to the Barbershop then they can from someone who has been talking football for the last 15 to 20 years. That was their biggest hurdle.

His long term goal for the Barbershop is to see it grow and to be on television with a worldwide audience

Fun Facts: He got to meet Marcus Trufant through his younger brother who played football with Marcus in college. Terry is a HUGE family man!

Neveen Dominic
Guest Occupation: Beauty and Fashion Entrepreneur and Philanthropist
Guest Biography:

Founder Neveen has a passion in fashion, beauty, community development and entrepreneurship, and is currently on a Foundation Domination World Tour 2018-2019, sharing her Flawless Makeup, Skin Care Kits, and Cosmetic Business Essentials. She has an inspiring story!

Hailing from South Sudan, Neveen Dominic often struggled to find cosmetic products made for her ebony skin tone. With so many cosmetics companies touting their foundations' "wide range" of skin tones, Dominic was often let down when she found that these same companies' color ranges so often stopped short at "mocha."

She remembers the days she struggled to find any products to suite her skin tone and although she was passionate about beauty, the limited product choices made it hard to achieve that glam look every girl dreams of. The job of perfecting the complexion is even more daunting for dark skinned women, who often have to perfect intricate makeup techniques or are left without being able to wear makeup at all.  She noticed that even professional makeup artists shied away from taking clients with deep skin tones because of the limitations in their own product offerings. When Neveen saw other dark skinned women turn towards extreme methods such as skin bleaching to fit more Eurocentric standards of beauty, she knew that the issue was more than skin deep.

Fed up with having to compromise, Mrs. Dominic created Neveen Dominic Cosmetics with the goal of making all women look and feel beautiful, regardless of skin tone. The philanthropist and entrepreneur had a vision for celebrating and embracing multifaceted beauty and making accessible cosmetics for diverse women.

Naveen is the author of "Beauty from the Ashes of War: Testimony of God's Love and Dreams Come True", and the recipient of the True Beauty Foundations's "Woman of Inspiration and Impact Community Spirit Award", and one of 23 finalists for the 2018 Mompreneur awards.

Guest Occupation: Contactee, Paranomal Photographer, Elemental Communicator
Guest Biography:

"Cheryl from Texas" has an extraordinary ability to connect in with the multi and ultra dimensional worlds.  Her gift started at a very young age and along with a photographic memory she was constantly receiving guidance from what as a child she called "from those above."  When adults would ask her a question, her "folks from above" would telepathically give her the answers which led the adults to think she was exceptionally bright.  

Although her grandmother was intuitive and her grandfather had a genius I.Q. they discounted her sightings until one time, at the age of 15 when Cheryl was in the woods walking with her Grandfather he saw her "friends" plain as day...it scared him and they never talked about it afterwards.

She remembers small green beings coming to the window, place their faces near the glass and smile.  Her Mother, being very religious, would have none of it even though two children of her mother's friends swore they also saw Star Craft with her.

Cheryl went through various stages of wanting to fit in, wanting to be normal and during those times her ultra-dimensional friends honored her wishes and pulled back, but she knew they were always around her.  They were near yet no longer conversing telepathically and their level of protection was not as strong.

Now she celebrates her connection with the elementals, the fairies, the elves, dwarves, small folk and of course the Galactic Beings.  Cheryl is honored that they allow her to take photos...she sees them in a field that looks like parallel world's converging.

Her honoring of the elemental realm includes not cutting trees except with their permission to trim, leaving tall grass for the small folk and the animal kingdom and communicating with the elementals when work on the land needs to be done to be in harmony with all living there.

Cheryl frequently experiences plasma, organic and metallic ships flying over her home.  There have been many interactions between military craft and the Galactic Craft where she lives.  Her photos of orbs, plasma craft and Light Beings are spectacular.

Cheryl's main message is to the importance of raising awareness that we are not alone...we share space with so many beings.  Being kind to all sentient beings is important.  The more we are kind to each other...to Mother Earth..to animals...to the plant beings...to the elementals...the more we raise our consciousness and vibrations which allows us to see and interact with Beings from all dimensions.

Bill Sweet
Guest Occupation: Author, Researcher, expertise is connecting prayer with paranormal research
Guest Biography:

Bill Sweet was always interested in paranormal phenomena which include the spiritual phenomena of prayer. Through meeting the founders of Spindrift Inc., Bruce and John Klingbeil, Bill began to grasp new ways of applying consciousness research to religion and science. Bill learned that the Klingbeils were healers in the Christian Science tradition who were doing scientific tests of consciousness and prayer.

Spindrift investigates prayer and human consciousness.

Bill Sweet was president of Spindrift for four years.

Bill was brought up in Wilmette, Illinois. He graduated from New Trier High School, which was the top public high school in the country at the time. He went to Illinois State University and received a communications degree. Bill has the highest-level ham radio operator’s license. He is also an audiophile and musician. For the Chicago area, Bill’s booking agency handled bands ranging from Dixieland, Rock and Roll, Disco, Big Band, and small group jazz.

The Spindrift research has been helpful in showing that aspects of prayer and consciousness are real phenomena and not the human imagination. Spindrift studied the positive effects, biased effects, and the dark effects coming from people’s prayers. An historical tidbit is that before 9/11, Spindrift tried to advise people to pay attention to the words in the dark prayers that militant Muslims prayed toward Jews and Americans.

The word Spindrift means the fast-moving spray atop an ocean wave during a powerful storm.

Spindrift points out: scientifically it is shocking to think of a force as intelligent, loving, kind, good, and aware of needs. The research suggested that prayer somehow linked to a loving Intelligence moved organisms toward their norms.

Attention:

Bill Sweet’s book on Spindrift is called A Journey Into Prayer: Pioneers of Prayer in the Laboratory: Agents of Science or Satan? (375 pages published by Xlibris.com)

Area of expertise is connecting prayer with paranormal research.

Here is a book review by Dean Radin, Ph.D.

  • Review published in Shift: at the Frontiers of Consciousness, the quarterly newsletter of the Noetic Science Institute.

What we’re reading...
The current pick from the Ions' staff:
A Journey Into Prayer by Bill Sweet

This book documents the inspiring and cautionary true story of Bruce and John Klingbeil, a father and son team of devout Christian Scientists who dared to test their faith in the power of prayer, and of Spindrift, the research organization that helped to support their efforts.  The story describes the Klingbeils’ courage and personal commitment to learn the truth about the efficacy of prayer, their self-taught but ingenious experiments, the staggering hostility they attracted from both the religious and the scientific communities, and ultimately, the unbearable poignancy in their untimely and mysterious deaths.

--Dean Radin, IONS’ Senior Scientist,

(Interviewed in the movie What the Bleep.)

Spindrift applied consciousness research to religion and science.

Bill Sweet joined www.SpindriftResearch.org. Spindrift studied human consciousness, spirituality, and the positive effects, biased effects, and negative effects of prayer.

Bill Sweet has written A Journey Into Prayer about the scientific aspects of prayer and the story of Spindrift.  See a sample chapter at Xlibris.com.

Brought up in Wilmette, Illinois, Bill graduated from New Trier High School, the top public high school. He went to Illinois State University and received a communications degree. Bill is a ham radio operator, a parapsychologist, an audiophile and musician.

The Spindrift research indicates that aspects of prayer and consciousness are real phenomena and not just the human imagination.

Spindrift points out: scientifically it is shocking to think of a force as intelligent, loving, kind, good, and aware of needs. The research suggested that prayer somehow linked to a loving Intelligence moved organisms toward their norms.

As the former president of the Spindrift Research Group (www.SpindriftResearch.org), Bill Sweet has been involved in the Spindrift study of the positive and negative aspects of prayer phenomena. The positive research suggested prayer was somehow linked to a loving Intelligence and was a normalizing force. The negative research suggested a negative intention in prayer was a destructive force.

Guest Occupation: Author Medium Teacher facilitates energy transmissions with a modality she calls ETS Energetic Transmission Sessions
Guest Biography:

Rev. Donna Lopez has been a member of hgsa since 2000, was ordained here in 2007.

She is an author of a book on spirit photography “Energetic Transmissions through Spirit Photography 2nd Edition”

She facilitates energy transmissions with a modality she calls ETS Energetic Transmission Sessions, whereby she moves and transmits energy for the client; moving them beyond their current state, whether physical, mental, or emotional in real time.

She offers a free transmission call each mid-month to anyone in need.

She also has a YouTube channel by the same name where she shares channeled messages for the month and mid-month energy forecasts.

She is a teacher since 2006, a medium for the last 26 years, a happy grandmother, who feels blessed to be with all of you today.

 

I have a book I wrote a few years ago "Energetic Transmissions through Spirit Photography 2nd Ed." that is not about the paranormal. Instead it gives insight to the influence we are having on our environment through our conscious, or unconscious alignments. The photos share that as I discovered and was taught by my Spirit Teachers that every thought, every emotion, every pondering is creating our reality. In the photos that came through what I was receiving from my guides was then showing up in photos as confirmation. As photos were shared many describe feeling dizzy, different, and the emphasis in the book is to choose consciously, eliminating perceived boundary's for what is possible. The book is available on Amazon.com and Kindle.

As an offshoot of my insights my healing, intuitive/mediumship work entails working in real time to clear patterns in one’s energy field dissolving long held conditions or conditioning. 

My work continues to evolve.

As for influence, I am aware of my own choices and that they be sovereign and free of alignment with mass consciousness, but they also may be in alignment with the masses.

I have a YouTube channel ETS Energetic Transmission Sessions where I share a channeled message for the month and mid-month energy forecast sharing the energies we may be encountering during the rest of the month. (like a weather report)

I am open to flow wherever the interview takes us.

Dada is a yoga monk, a meditation instructor, an author, a keynote speaker and a musician. Born in New Zealand, he was ordained as a monk in India in 1979. Dada has appeared on stage with the Dalai Lama, taught or performed in more than 40 countries and has spoken for TEDx, NVIDIA, Google, CISCO, Lam Research Intel and Facebook.  

I’m also a humor writer, so that is a big part of my classes, presentations and products.

But the experience I create with music and humor and more is just a vehicle to inspire people to adopt the life changing meditation practice I have learned. Their ongoing practice is what brings the real lasting value.

 I’ve played music all my life, and been a meditation teacher for more than 40 years. I combine music and meditation to create an experience that people remember. Last week I met with a marketing and sales team at a big hotel, a potential client. I brought out my guitar, taught them a mantra and had them all chant and meditation. Several of them were crying afterwards (in a good way). It was a done deal.

Doane Perry Talks about Life After Jethro Tull
Guest Occupation: Drummer,Songwriter,Author
Guest Biography:

LEGENDARY DRUMMER

CHATS ABOUT HIS TENURE WITH JETHRO TULL

AND  LATEST PROJECT

GUITARIST TONE MASSEVE'S "AMP L' ETUDE" 

EXCLUSIVE

“Determined, talented, driven, passionate” …these are just a few of the adjectives people use to describe this multifaceted percussionist. A professional musician since 1972, Doane Perry has been called one of the most prolific and versatile drummers in contemporary music.

His career spans over 28 years with the internationally acclaimed progressive rock band Jethro Tull, incorporating 18 world tours, countless records, videos, and DVDs, and a Grammy. As a performer, composer or producer, he has appeared on more than 100 records to date, many of which have attained gold or multi-platinum status, and on numerous #1 records in multiple genres. He has worked in the recording studios of New York, Los Angeles, Sydney, and London. And as an author, he has been a featured writer for musical magazines, anthologies, book publications, websites, CD liner notes, Jethro Tull concert programs, four treasure hunts and one crossword puzzle!

Born June 16, 1954, in Mount Kisco, New York, Doane began piano lessons at the age of seven and later picked up drums when he was eleven. “The Beatles arrived on the scene and changed everything,” he says, adding with a smile and his characteristic charm, “and the possibility, however unlikely that might have been, of young girls chasing me down the street if I took up the drums!”

Determined and smart, even at the young age of 14, Perry had his own working band. He spent his time gigging on weekends until he graduated from high school at 17, filling a brief beat as a Baskin-Robbins ice cream vendor. He never stopped studying music, crossing a myriad of styles and absorbing music from some of his major percussive influences, which included Ginger Baker, John Bonham, Mitch Mitchell, Keith Moon, Billy Cobham, Tony Williams, Elvin Jones, Max Roach, Barry Altschul and Clive Bunker (Jethro Tull’s first drummer) amongst many others.

The year 1972 found the 18-year-old already a professional, juggling time between school and gigging — which ultimately created a serious conflict. Having to choose which direction to go, Perry made the life-changing decision to pursue his music full time.

No sooner had he made his choice, then Doane embarked on gaining a broader understanding of as many musical genres as possible. This opened doors to both live and studio work — Rock, Pop, Jazz, Fusion, Latin, Classical, R&B, Folk, Indian, Middle Eastern, Asian, Celtic, Broadway Shows, TV, and numerous film scores. It was New York City, and the age of diverse thriving ethnic and world music surrounded him. “It was a wonderful time to be a young musician, particularly in that city,” says Doane.

Perry’s love not just for music but also for literature and learning had him attending Browning, St. Bernard’s, and Collegiate Schools in New York City. He also spent a brief time at New York University, and was part of extension programs at The New School, Rutgers, Julliard…anytime his busy music schedule would permit and immersed himself in private musical study in Jazz and Orchestral Percussion.

Thomas Vanacor
Guest Occupation: Founder of Rock Dust Local
Guest Biography:

In the late 1980's the founder of Rock Dust Local, Thomas Vanacore, was introduced to soil remineralization as a viable local alternative to conventional fertilizers and soil amendments with benefits extending to global concerns such as climate change. The idea is that by revitalizing the earth's green mantle acre by acre atmospheric carbon can be captured, reversing rising levels of atmospheric greenhouse gas emissions; Local action and global benefit. Being a mason and stone carver by trade Tom had extensive experience working with rocks and minerals and years of experience with mines and quarry operations. This and Tom's connection to the early revival of organic farming  in Vermont set things in motion. 

In 1991 Tom decided to try his hand at starting a small business sourcing and delivering local rock dusts to regional farms. This would be a first step to introduce remineralization to area growers.  But as Tom says "I couldn't give it away". But times have changed.  25 years later, after continual work with rock dusts in organic farming himself, and building up a network supply of regional sources, Tom and Joan, his wife and partner of over 15 years, decided to try again.  Rock Dust Local set up shop at a local Farmers Market in Vermont hawking 5 and 10 lb. bags of "Local Rocks for Local Crops".  "I literally had to stand out in front of the table and call people in, like an old fish monger." That's how it got restarted in 2010.  From there Rock Dust Local began delivering rock dust in bulk to regional growers interested in nutrient dense farming,  many of these growers learning from experienced farmers and educators like Dan Kittredge, Gary Zimmer and Eliot Coleman.  Building the website and store came about by people calling up for information and bags of rock dust. And the story has just begun.
      
Rock Dust Local was established as the first company in North America specializing in local and regional sourcing of rock dust for remineralization.  We are the largest distributor of regionally sourced rock dust and a growing presence in the field of agrominerals.  This is still a small business. We like to work directly with our customers.  Our mission remains the same; to revitalize the earth's green mantle one acre at a time. We support local agriculture by providing the BEST rock dusts, fixed carbon and biological companion materials through sustainable and responsible business practices with a dedication to affordability, quality and localization. We believe biologic management practices can provide a major solution to the growing problem of climatic instability by sustainably capturing carbon as well as reversing the decline in nutritional value and yields in commercial agriculture.  We believe family farms are the future strength of the land.

To quote William Albrecht "May rocks their silence break and speak nationally through a better knowledge of soil for food as the basis of national health and thereby a national strength for the prevention of war and for the simplest road to peace. Our future national strength must rest in our soils."- The Albrecht Papers, Vol.I
