Love yourself.

I met Eyerusalem a year ago. I was struck by her outgoing personality and unique look. I knew I wanted to have her model for me, though it didn't happen immediately. This year we connected to plan a portrait of her for an award competition. I styled her with a "touch of glamour", using a bustier and flowing tulle fabric. I was looking to capture a moment that showed her sense of self, her femininity and a bit of vulnerability.

It's important to have a healthy view of who you are. So often we look in the mirror and catch ourselves in bad lighting or at the wrong angle, and our thoughts can spiral down from there.

Fresh Portraits was created to provide portraits of yourself that you would love, that would increase your confidence and self-worth. It's easy to get down on ourselves, but with a fresh look you might see yourself in a whole new light.


Eyerusalem has many talents, one is as a creative, transformative hair and makeup artist. She has a mobile salon at, in San Francisco and Marin.
