Bare Face Feature: Laura Ganci

Laura is this over-the-top-talented musician/singer/songwriter/artist who grew up in the same town as me. She was a few grades behind me, but we still somehow always ended circling in similar groups of people. Although I don’t know her very well, there are some things I do know about her. She is loyal. She is a very hard worker. She is loving and she has amazing friends. She and her twin sister Nina are inseparable. She loves her family. She is an artist through and through. She is extremely talented, and I am so honored that she wanted to share a little part of her story with us and this project.

Her message is so profound, talking about where this uncovered beauty began, where it has gotten hidden, and to why she chooses to let it free again ..


Thank you Laura for sharing with us. Your words resonate with so many.

A Bare Face Feature: Kristina Nichol

Kristina and I are Instagram friends. She lives in Calgary, Canada. We have never met.. But I do know that she is a very talented photographer. I love following her gorgeous feed, and was absolutely thrilled when she chose to share her bare-faced self portrait with us. But what I was even more thrilled with was what she chose to write underneath it. I love her story, because it is exactly what this project is all about: learning to love and accept one’s self for who they are. Sometimes it takes time, but it is always possible.
