At the heart of every issue of BRAVA are the women whose stories we tell. They’re not professional models and they’re not always comfortable in front of the camera—but they’re shaping our community and inspiring our readers.
Not only do I coordinate the logistics of each shoot and direct the photographer, but I make sure our featured woman feels confident every step of the way. Nearly every month, I get an email along the lines of this one from our August 2010 model, “I really enjoyed working with you and [your photographer] David and felt like a supermodel for the morning! You both made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. Thank you.”
