Jami is a Des Moines based photographer, emphasizing the intimacy of a shared portrait experience. Her Creative Confessional is a pop-up portrait experience, exploring the authenticity of sharing your creative trials and errors — the wins and losses, the dreams and dreams dashed and the imagery generated from that shared space of the souls. Her background in audience research and strategy, coupled with her own creative work, creates a unique experience of digging into the desires and despairs of the creative process.
The Creative Confessional is part portrait booth and part exercise in intimacy. Enter the clear booth to share transparently and commit to exploring your creative confession with the intention of speaking it into existence or finally setting it free.
Participants within the Creative Confessional will receive three to five hi-res images generated during their session, delivered digitally within 24 hours of the experience.

Unlimited Breath over oxygenates our blood, waking somatically stored trauma. Each inhale invites Divine Love into our being. Each exhale releases toxins and trauma. Participants will learn the Unlimited Breath technique and lay on their backs breathing for 60 minutes with Jodi’s support.
Wanting to do more than manage triggers from her own trauma Jodi, enrolled in a six month intensive Unlimited Breath workshop in 2015 and began healing her life. Having such a positive experience with the modality she became a master practitioner in 2018.
Maori + Rieki
Dena is a native of New Zealand with a deep history as a member of the Ngāpuhi tribe, Dena’s great grandmother was a Maori healer as well. Through her family tradition and training she has been able to bring this traditional form of healing to our community. Maori actually translates as ‘way of life’ and this single word manages to encapsulate one of the most essential principles of New Zealand’s indigenous people: there is no separation between us and the world, between humans and the soul, heart and spirit.
The traditional Māori system of healing works from that exact idea. Healing sessions connect and balance the soul, heart, and spirit. Practitioners of Māori healing work through the body, reading it like a map, to find and release both current and past diseases, emotions and physical problems.
