I’m Renee Bell. Photographer. Mother. Dreamer. Artist. Life Coach.
On Friday, that last bit became official.
Wait a moment…
Why does a photographer become a life coach? After 7 years with a successful newborn photography studio (read :: one that allows me to live the lifestyle I want to live) why take a break from that and head in, what seems like, a completely different direction?
Let me see if I can explain a little…
Increasingly over the last few years I have been pulled more and more towards exploration.
The concept of balancing structure vs wildness. My passion for empowering my daughter ~ teaching her about self love and self acceptance. Being more courageous. Allowing myself space to indulge my creativity. Getting out of the studio and connecting with other passionate entrepreneurs. Understanding my body, my health and how that fits into my life. Core desired feelings.
Transformation. Passion. Joy. Abundance. Beauty.
It changes before you’ve even registered; a pregnant belly becomes a baby, a toddler becomes a child, or you become who you were always hoping to be.
Memory is fallible. Vision loves form. Time passes without these transformations being fully appreciated.
As a photographer I’m in the business of capturing fragile moments of time. I craft memories and messages through my art.
As a health and life coach, I partner with self-aware women who wish to grow through gratitude, good health, grace and plenty of giggles.
As a dreamer I’d been searching for many years for a space to celebrate, share and connect my seemingly distinct passions…
So, after quite a personal journey, plus extensive study, Little Girls with Great Big Dreams was born… That is, of course, why you are here reading this blog…
For now, back to the photography…
I’m more than just a photographer. (A lovely lady recently called me a multi-talented minx).
// I nurture your inner vision so we can bring it to life.
// I draw out the side of you that’s been hiding.
// I coach you through the entire process.
// I’m obsessed with details
Photographer + Life Coach
= One Powerful Combination.
You see, be[love] is more than an amazing photo shoot. It’s a transformative experience.
To understand you and to capture your transformation, I need to have traveled that road myself. Got down and dirty with my desires, my mission, my motives, my plans. Taken the steps (and celebrated the wins) plus analyzed the road blocks as they came along… and, of course the road blocks always come along! To teach, to empower and to strengthen resolve.
The process of training to be a life coach, was not a conscious decision to be simply that. It was a step in the journey. A puzzle piece to add to my collection, of random bits and pieces of sparkly and colourful delight. What the final picture looks like in the end – who knows!!!
But I am enjoying the ‘collecting’ 🙂 The anticipation of not knowing what is next. Of living each day as it comes..
Please stick around and watch as I transform, hopefully I might inspire you to take a little leap of faith yourself!
