Channeling the spirit of Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra, The Off The Wall (1979) album was Michael Jackson's own bildungsroman, a coming of age art piece. It signfied his detour from the Jackson Five to his own path to superstardom. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀The outfit and photos were stylized and shot by creative director Mike Salisbury and Stephen Harvey. Salisbury is the genius behind L'Oréal, Rolling Stone, Levis 501 jeans and Volkswagen, to name a few. He recognised the undeniable star that Jackson was set to become and was determined to be a catalyst in his journey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀The tuxedoed image they devised gave Jackson an iconic look that would subliminally link the singer to swing-era legends such as Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly. The socks were inspired by the ones Kelly wore in An American In Paris. This style would be retained, becoming a part of Jackson's branding, featured in videos like Don't Stop Till You Get Enough and Billie Jean.
Self-Portrait Day 1 :: Morning
Or is it mourning? I mean...someone tell my face that I’m in France and that I should smile a little more. (Just kidding. Don’t ever tell a woman to smile. She’ll do it just fine on her own whenever she damn well pleases.)
My first morning in Cannes is full of leisure. Thanks to a long day of travel with little to no sleep (and a healthy dose of melatonin), I passed out at midnight local time and slept for a full 8 hours. Take THAT, Jetlag.
I then took the morning to walk the city and explore a little. Being Sunday, most of the city is slow and closed, which made it all the more easy to wander around at my own pace.
It also made it easy to return to my hotel room and my gorgeous view (Swipe 👉👉 to see the view from my terrace).
So far, this vacation is truly just that. An actual vacation. I have nothing to do and I’m both thrilled at that idea and totally bored by it at the same time.
I’ll probably venture out again in search of a wine opener for my complimentary bottle of wine. Or maybe I’ll just call the concierge and have it delivered to my room while I’m taking a bath. WHO KNOWS!
Either way, this self portrait definitely sums up my morning. Lounging in bed. ❤️

Business branding is something I could just burst speaking about -- I'm just THAT passionate about it! Every brand I work with has given me the honor of being part of their story and trusted my lens to capture their beautiful, do-good business. This is a shot from one of my faves -- the @gatherseattle @designanddigest
Congratulations to Bianca & Lashley! Thank you again for sharing your special day with me! Everything was absolutely beautiful! ✨💕#capturedbycoriss

Time “Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is.” – Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now
So powerful and on point! Xoxo
Wanna know something? I’ve been working on my dream of acting, writing, performing, and creating since I could talk. But it’s not always easy. 😔
Actually, 8 times out of 10 it’s really freaking hard. Despite all the struggling and battles I’ve lost or won, I’ve learned through all the peaks and valleys that have brought me to where I am now, that the real key to my success, the one thing that allows me to keep this business going is reminding myself to keep going. 🏃♀
Maybe I don’t always feel supported, or encouraged, or liked, or heard, but the vampire of despair is only strengthened by these beliefs. I have to shut her up and focus on doing what I believe in.
The reassurance from each of you, showing up just to say hi, reminds me that what I’m doing is worth it. So I keep going. Thank you for joining me on this journey, and helping me silence the doubt.

When we show up, we show each other what’s possible. When we embrace all of who we are, we show each other the beauty in accepting our humanness. Shine bright and let others see what’s possible. It creates even more connection and you are meant to be seen! 💞💞💞
Saturday’s are for editing ☕️
Shot some products/flatlays this morning and went for walk this afternoon. Now time to hunker down and edit some photos ☺️
How is your Saturday treating you so far?
what helps me through my hurdles is never forgetting to.. • in frame Violeta ☺️ : @violeta23_official
I LOVE reading so much but when it comes to choosing something to read online or looking at what to purchase, it is the pictures that go with the offer that get my attention.
If you have a business, here are five reasons to include images in your marketing.
1) Articles with images get 94% views.
2) If you include images in your content and on your site, people are more likely to remember you.
3) Images can make or break a deal when it comes to local searches. Bright local found that 60% of consumers are more willing to consider local search results that include images and another 23 percent are more likely to contact a business showcasing an image.
4) Engagement rate on Facebook for posts with photos are 37% higher level of engagement for photos over text.
5) 65 percent of the population is made up of visual learners, leaving auditory and experiential learners miles behind.
So many people are full of self doubt about their being visible. I really get it!
My job is to take away the doubts before and during a photoshoot. My mission is to make people feel happy and proud.
I have a framework that I use that helps people relax before and on the shoot.
The business photoshoots are designed to be excellent value, fun but relaxing and my clients always find loads of images that they love to share to attract their tribe. #personalbranding #brandingphotography #portrait #commercialphotographer #lifestylephotographer #brandphotographer #brandingphotography #getinspired #marketing #businesscards #headshot #photography #portrait #businessportrait #creativepreneur #value #visualbranding #personalbranding #personalbrand #entrepreneurlife #brandidentity #creativebranding

Looking better and better. What do you think?
Good morning, and happy Saturday! Ten years of running my business full time, I’ve received a ton of feedback from clients. ⠀
Some hurt my feelings, but I believe all of it has made me better at what I do. By and large, I get the most positive feedback on my customer service and relationships with my clients. I have a strong commitment to openness with clients in sharing my own story of weight loss, depression and anxiety of being in front of a camera, or behind it at times as well. ⠀
I’m thankful that my clear branding draws only my ideal clients—those who appreciate and actually encourage my cut and dried approach to photography and fitness. Immediately creating a sense of empathy with my clients allows me to gain their trust—the most important part of creating an amazing session!⠀

'No' doesn't necessarily mean No.. But a lot of the time we take it as that because we're a little too shy to be persistent. Sometimes on the 3rd, 4th or even 5th time of asking, a 'No' can be turned to a 'Yes' 😉
