10 on 10: Beauty From the Inside Out

Though she is one of my best friends, I feel so fortunate that she hired me to take her portraits for her new health business.   Ali, who has spent years as an acupuncturist working to heal people in their addictions, is in the process of growing a new business called Simply Wellness.  She is committed to helping people improve their health, wellbeing, and quality of life by teaching simple, sustainable daily practices.

She practices what she teaches, and as beautiful as she is on the outside, she is that beauty squared on the inside.   She smiles, listens, and inspires, and always radiates the light that shines inside of her.


Until her website is up and running, you can follow her on twitter here.    Her business will include health for the mind, body and soul, through nutrition, exercise, and so much more!

We spent a few hours shooting on a private beach in Laguna, an absolute dream for me, so we played around in the caves at Three Arch Bay.

We spent a good portion of our shoot doing a fitness segment too, so here’s a sneak peak…

I will certainly keep you posted on Ali’s new business, as I know it will have something for everyone!

Please follow around our blog circle, starting with the uber-talented Bonnie.   I’ll see you a little bit earlier next month for our 10 on 10 post.  It will now be available on the 10th!  See you then!

    Stunning portraits of a beautiful woman. You really make her glow in your pictures. And I wish I lived closer so that I could look into her Simply Wellness business. I wish you both all the best for your businesses.

    These portraits are amazing, Kim! (as usual). I am sure your friend is very pleased. You have a knack for showing women’s beauty and joy. I love the one of Ali laughing. I don’t like push-ups (I know they are effective, though), but she sure makes it look easy and fun :) I look forward to seeing more about Ali’s business!
