Titi is an immensely talented spoken word poet and writer. I actually didn’t know much about her at the time of the session… I just knew there was this calm, wise, and stunning depth to her. Titi knew of me back in our hometown of Edmonton, Alberta, and heard through the grapevine that I was spending the colder months in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic – the very place she was visiting for a wedding! She quickly decided that the beautiful beaches of Punta Cana would be the perfect setting for capturing her essence.
From Titi’s heart:
“I believe that as human beings we are always telling stories, in our faces, in our bodies, with our voices, whether we realize it or not. My hope is that by sharing my stories, I can touch on the pulse of what someone else is feeling and remind them that we are one and the same. The gift of the spoken word is that it has the ability to transform lives. I feel blessed to be a medium.”
The peaceful and quiet sunrise at Bavaro Beach really did set the mood. Look on and see what I mean!
