One day, I was browsing through Instagram and came across a bold, beautiful image of a woman covered in confetti. I quickly wanted to find out what this was all about, and my love for The Confetti Project was born.
Jelena is the creator of The Confetti Project, which is an amazing photography series that douses amazing humans in copious amounts of confetti. And when I say copious, I mean POUNDS. Even months after my experience in her Brooklyn studio (check out my session here), I STILL find confetti peppered throughout my house.
This is more than a photo shoot for Jelena, though.
In this week’s episode, she talks about how confetti is a metaphor for life. Experiences, whether good or challenging, are often taken so seriously and we forget that life can be fun. She reminds us that we don’t need permission to play and you most certainly don’t need to be perfect.
Jelena also talks about her new book, Cancer and Confetti, and how the grieving process of losing her dad to cancer impacted her career. The concept of Celebration Therapy was born and has since impacted thousands of people, from women to men, couples, to friends, sisters, and parents.
This was a beautiful episode to co-create—I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
