We said goodbye to 2018 by hosting our first Pop-Up & Portraits open studio event in NYC.

Pop-Up & Portraits is a gathering where Alexis Mera customers and community members meet IRL to mingle, shop, and have a photo session with founder, Alexis Mera Damen.

Get to know a few lady bosses who came by to our first event.

Sophia Holly

Meet Sophia Holly

AM: What do you do and what do you love about it?

SH: I teach yoga. I work with a diverse population, and focus on helping women heal trauma and body image issues. I’m grateful to witness my students learn how to listen to and eventually love their bodies. The strength and self-awareness yoga can create is powerful. I also love countering the diet and fitness culture messages we are bombarded with so that my students can treat their bodies with compassion and respect.

AM: What are you celebrating in life today?

SH: I’m celebrating my freedom from eating issues and self-doubt. I can really feel how far I’ve come. Some moments, I feel like it is a miracle!

AM: Could you tell us about your experience at our Pop-Up & Portraits open studio event?

SH: I had so much fun at the Pop-Up! Alexis created a really safe environment to be photographed. Photographs can still be a little hard for me, so I was grateful to be in compassionate hands. The photos came out amazing as well, of course! 🙂

Stacie Sussman

Meet Stacie Sussman

AM: What do you do and what do you love about it?

SS: I’m the owner & founder of SSR Digital Group. I provide expertise, guidance, and efficiency around scaling early to mid-stage start-ups and businesses to beef up their bottom lines. I love being able to put execution tactics in place and seeing how these companies flourish.

AM: What are you celebrating in life today?

SS: I reflected on 2018 as a year of growth. I’m excited to have professional (and personal) clarity, vision, and focus to jump into 2019!

AM: Could you tell us about your experience at our Pop-Up & Portraits open studio event?

SS: Alexis has a sense of ease in capturing the "perfect portrait." She's a whiz behind the lens, provides guidance on poses, and of course how my hair looks. It was a pleasure working with her and I already know my images came out great!

Jenna Hillier

Meet Jenna Hillier

AM: What do you do and what do you love about it?

JH: I'm a life coach and fitness instructor, specializing in activating vibrant health through healing, emotional-eating, and cathartic movement. I offer emotionally-intelligent coaching and insightful accountability because I believe small daily action leads to lasting transformation. I love the intimate relationships I share with my clients and witnessing them take their power back and design a healthy lifestyle they can stick to with ease. It lights me up to watch their lives change and their health transform!

AM: What are you celebrating in life today?

JH: The supportive women I have the privilege of doing life with, my able and miraculous body, and the ability to watch my niece and nephew giggle and play.

AM: Could you tell us about your experience at our Pop-Up & Portraits open studio event?

JH: Pop-Up & Portraits was fun! Alexis makes you feel right at home and so comfortable in front of the camera. Plus, from purchasing to delivering the photos, she was on top of everything, making the experience really easy and effortless for me. I even met a new friend I'm excited to support and collaborate with! I'll be back for sure!

Clare Hackney

Meet Clare Hackney

AM: What do you do and what do you love about it?

CH: I consult as a construction subject matter expert on real estate development projects and portfolio acquisitions. In some cases I also serve as a project manager.

I’m an engineer and love solving problems. Early in my career I learned that communication across the construction and finance disciplines was a source of friction and inefficiency within real estate overall. Solving that problem and seeking to diversify my background has made my work more interesting and has made me a better team member and leader.

AM: What are you celebrating in life today?

CH: Every day, my four-year-old twins.

AM: Could you tell us about your experience at our Pop-Up & Portraits open studio event?

CH: The event was great, and felt like friends getting to know each other and taking some pictures while chatting. I really enjoyed meeting the women who were there.

Find Clare on Facebook and check out her website.

Alexis Mera is a clothing brand and platform that's celebrating women and telling their stories. We love meeting our community in person and hope to see you at our next event!
