Meet the Rainey Family

Confidence is the New Sexy!

“The most beautiful thing you can wear is confidence.” Blake Lively Confidence is the new sexy! It’s amazing to me how many people, especially women, are not satisfied with how they look. Let’s take for example, a beautiful woman looking at a portrait of herself. She will fixate on the things she does not like: a pimple, her nose, her arms, or whatever she feels is not acceptable and does not meet her standard of what […]

I got such a […]

Don’t Be An Egg Head – Get great business portraits

Learn how to get great business portraits: How do you ensure a great first impression? Having self confidence in yourself and what you do shows others you have trust in your own powers and abilities. How is your Avatar online or your business marketing portraying you in your business? Sometimes the “Selfie” just doesn’t cut it, and leaving your Avatar blank is worse because your then appear like you don’t follow through with things (incomplete profile) or you […]

The Uber Talented Talia

I had the pleasure of meeting Talia 4 years ago when I first moved to the Central Coast. I was immediately impressed by her talent and had no idea at the time that she was only 15. Now that a year has past from her graduating from High School I’ve had the pleasure of performing with her many times on stage and one very special performance at Carnegie Hall with our dance troupe SaJa and […]

The First Folio – Irene Neale

Irene Neale, a great client and now a great friend. She was so fun to photograph.

Her purpose for being photographed was to give her husband a very special anniversary gift after more than 30 years of marriage. I had no idea to what extent the effect would be. This is […]

Professional Headshots of Exceptional Women

Networking in San Luis Obispo has actually become a lifestyle for me.  This is fantastic because I originally didn’t know that growing my business also meant getting to know people and socializing. I get to see some of the most amazing businesses while getting to sample wines and tasty food with the SLO Chamber of Commerce.  I get to get to have breakfast every Wednesday and build my networking team with the BNI SLO Founding Chapter, and […]

I Believe!

I believe our culture has “manipulated” us into believing we must look a certain way to be attractive. I believe that we fall victim to over generalized labeling, and many of us live up to those labels that we are given by others or ourselves. I believe that if you want to feel better about yourself then you should see yourself in your true light – which is the best version of YOU. I believe […]

Free Dance – Dance With Intention

What do you feel when you hear a song with a great rhythm?  Many of us have taken dance lessons; some of us do it for fun and some take every step seriously and are driven to be perfect.  But many of us miss the point to dancing and don’t even realize the power it has on our overall health and wellbeing.  If we get so caught up in trying to “do it right” we […]

Practical Self Love
I know many women (including myself) tend to compare ourselves with everything and everyone we are surrounded by.  I’m not as smart as she is, or we don’t have hair like her, a figure like her, a car like him, a wardrobe like theirs, and on and on. Why do we do this to ourselves? Once we get into this endless cycle we start to feel inferior of what we have and who we are. […]
