It happens so often – I get so inspired by my clients  for being powerhouse business women and role models for other women and young girls who aspire to build their own businesses. I feel like every woman that crosses my path has something to teach me and the other women around her.

Nicci Colussi is one such inspiration. She recently celebrated the 1st anniversary of her Sorbet salon in Kenilworth and I was privileged to be there to help celebrate. I was even further honoured to be able to photograph Nicci, creating for her a collection of images that represent the successful and vibrant business woman that she is.

During the shoot Nicci chatted to me about her business journey, her goals and her aspirations. It’s inspiring to hear how other woman manage and build their business and I firmly believe that every person has a story that can inspire those who need to hear it, so I’m honoured to introduce you to Nicci Colussi.
