“Photogenic” is a Dirty Word…and Other Conversations to Break the Beauty Myth

May 9, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event


Presented by 

Meka Hemmons, Personal Branding Photographer


Ripping apart all kinds of undercover filthy words when describing how we look, like “un-photogenic” and “flawed” and “imperfect” is just the beginning. There is a long and terrible history of toxic messaging rooted in our media and echoing in our psyche that prevents us from simply being able to look in the mirror and smile at ourselves, let alone show up confidently to be photographed. Having transitioned from working with high profile glamour culture to turning every-day women into believers of their own stunning power, I’m here proving that beauty is not completely in the eye of the beholder… but it is absolutely in the energy you’re giving and receiving.

During this session we will:

  • Address damaging and common habits and language we use to amplify our “flaws”.
  • Discuss how to prepare yourself to change your perception of your reflection.
  • Share tools and techniques to own your beauty & power.


“Spider” Meka Hemmons is more than a portrait and personal branding photographer – she has unparalleled ability to put people at ease and represent them In their most impactful and inspiring light. Meka’s background comprises 25 years of visual communications, design, and branding, including 10 years of celebrity retouching during her tenure at Harpo Studios, Inc. and The Oprah Winfrey Network.

Meka merges her branding philosophy and personable talents into bringing natural, polished essence often attributed to celebrities out of the everyday person and spreading the message of accepting, appreciating and celebrating ourselves the way we are.
