Back in the middle of July we decided to test out a new product... the Tribe of Diamonds Group Photo Session! I took five amazing women out for the day of fun in Boulder, Colorado...a few hours in the studio, lunch at The Med, some time on Pearl Street, and then up into the mountains. It was a fantastic day of photography, fun, and friendship.

Participants included:

  • Helen Butler (Manchester, UK)
  • Maria Cucinotta (Sydney, Australia)
  • Theresa Johnson (Missouri, US)
  • Patricia Hopkins (Pennsylvania, US)
  • Serenity Heegel (Texas, US)

Contact me if you are interested in YOUR group day of photography. It's a great introduction to the Tribe of Diamonds brand, and gets you an amazing variety of photography. Lunch for everyone is included.

Also along for the ride were my daughter, Emma Hajicek, and our friend (and client) from Ireland, Amanda Boyd. A huge thank you to them for sharing videography duties.

Rachael Jayne Groover

When I first heard of Rachael Jayne Groover’s amazing work a few years ago, I immediately began wondering how we might work together. Her book “Powerful and Feminine” had just been published, and her Art of Feminine Presence program had already been changing lives for some time. I’d spent roughly the past decade trying to wrap my head around the transformations that I was witnessing through my lens, and somehow I knew that she would play a role.

Fast forward a couple of years, and here I am in the throes of the purpose of my life, in no small part due to the fact that I went through Datta Groover’s Authentic Speaker Academy six months ago. I found my voice, I defined my purpose, and I’m currently “touring” with both Rachael Jayne and Datta Groover and speaking to groups of beautiful, amazing women around the globe.

My photo shoot with Don Hajicek was one of the most amazing experiences of my life!

I wanted authentic photos for my business that showed my unique personality, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I keep looking at my pictures and saying to myself, “wow, is that really me? I am so freakin’ beautiful!” I feel so incredibly proud of my photos!

The basic purpose of my work is to serve however I can through the art of photography. But about ten years ago I discovered that there is a much larger purpose to my work, even if I didn’t fully recognize it at the time.

At the time, a woman hired me to conduct a boudoir photo session for her. The night before our session, she emailed me to tell me that she was a breast cancer survivor, and that she’d had a double mastectomy. She told me that she no longer felt like a woman. Then she asked me…

“Do you still want to do this?”
