A unique transformational artist and photographer who sees beauty wherever she looks, ECHO is by all counts a star maker. She has the unique ability and talent to make her clients shine, inside and out, as she works her magic to showcase their natural best in the photographs she takes, from hair and makeup to wardrobe style, all while bringing out what matters most for these important picture poses—their heart.
Her passion for making people feel beautiful began early on and as far back as she can remember. As a young girl of five, she remembers happily brushing peoples’ hair, often adorning it with flowers, freshly picked, and serving them her favorite treat, proudly presented, to show them just how special they were. She instinctively knew then the power of giving and to beautify in all ways, that few things make a person more beautiful than self-care to grow with love to confidence, and that her belief in their beauty would uplift and inspire them like nothing else could.
She continued to follow her dreams of making the world beautiful by studying her craft professionally and attending and graduating from beauty school when she was 18 years old. She was never deterred from her quest, even after a horrific winter night car crash that took her life for an instant—technically rendering her dead—and put her in a coma for two weeks before she miraculously recovered. Instead, she says that this life-altering experience manifested in another gift—a conscious awakening that she attributes her profound spiritual awareness and guidance she uses to do her extraordinary Transformational Art Photography (TAP).
A trail-blazing entrepreneur and business owner since the age of 19, she first worked in the music industry as a celebrity stylist. Her exceptional makeup skills led to high-profile jobs in video and film production, where she worked on celebrities whose stars were on the rise on the sets of major movies and TV shows. Her career, a stellar success right out of the gate, has taken her all around the world, to the White House and back again.
ECHO originally hails from Phoenix, Arizona, and now calls Tucson home. “Tucson is a sanctuary for healing and transformation, becoming a defining destiny experience for those who are drawn to its soul-soothing landscapes and healing sun energy,” she says.
People from all over the world who find Tucson’s natural beauty irresistible also find their way to ECHO’s door, lured by her stellar reputation and an attraction spiritually driven. Their search for meaning and transformation ultimately comes full circle when they meet ECHO, for as she works on their outward appearance, their inner selves inevitably shine.
Her work is more than skin deep. ECHO has the rare intuitive ability to read a person’s heart and heal any distorted self-image issues they may have. “A significant part of what I do is clear a person’s energy field—whether it is blocked from childhood, a painful divorce or any setback, heartache or distortion that veils their true essence, which is always whole and beautiful,” she explains. “I clear, restore and revitalize all their energies so they can reclaim their lives, achieve their personal best and realize their purposeful existence, which they rightfully deserve.”
Apart from her TAP shoots, her unique calling as both an artist and catalyst of the spirit have led her to perform “Soul Session” work with people who want to discover the most important spiritual part of their destined journey. A 90-minute Soul Session with ECHO entails a combination of astrology, where she looks into a person’s birth chart and sees their soul’s contract; and numerology, where she guides them to harmonize on their Destiny Life Path focusing on the energetic influence of the current year cycle, and empowers them to create their own “Destiny List” to realize their heart’s desire.
“We are all in a constant phase of transformation. With insight and awareness, we can navigate to powerfully attract and manifest our highest calling,” says ECHO. “All anyone has to do is work on their openness and ability to receive all the abundance we are surrounded by and give from all that you have and are. Your light is needed and is the foundation of a truly inspiring and fulfilling life.”
This compelling spiritual work led her to publish the 2017 ASTRO ECHO Destiny Calendar this year. An interactive blending of astrology, numerology and setting one’s own Destiny List to work with throughout the year, the calendar is visually brilliant, with original astral art for every month created by her “love” and soon-to-be husband, Andrei. Andrei, also a professional photographer, designer and an accomplished creative genius, is ECHO’s collaborative partner for EchoStarMaker.com. Together, united in heart, craft and calling as artists and photographers, they are dedicated to creating spiritually driven, extraordinarily magical images for their clients worldwide.
