Danielle Bertoia embodies the strength and drive essential to finding success while remaining devoted to family, health and spirit with the same commitment. This is a young woman who has got it together. As a Yoga and Ayurvedic Instructor, Danielle helps women rediscover the parts of themselves lost along the way due to domestication, shame, fear or the desperate need to fit in. She says “Using Yoga, Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology, I re-introduce women to their wildness, assuring them that you can still wear red lipstick and be a yogi, meditate and yell when you’re mad, and unleash your wild spirit while still bowing with grace to the infinite.” I feel like many of us can benefit from a dose of that medicine!
Living in a rural area in Vancouver, BC, Danielle is well versed in working virtually with her clients. Finding that common ground in me and mine, she reached out in hopes I could help her by styling some outfits for the photography on her new website. She was flying to L.A. to shoot with three different photographers, and needed at least five head to toe looks, complete with make-up and hair, that felt true to who she is – vital, connected, bohemian, bold!
This one captures an elegance and ease that resulted in the beautiful shots below…
The shopping she had done in BC before meeting me left her disappointed that everything was fitting too big and bulky. Danielle is petite and muscular and wanted her body to be accurately represented on camera. Once her orders arrived, her looks came to life! We had a long conversation over Skype deciding on the five final outfits. And now, not only does she have gorgeous images representing her personality and brand, she is left with a capsule wardrobe appropriate for her professional life and beyond!
