We all need inspiration from time to time...
My Mission is...
To show outstanding strength, determination and grace by helping others find their self-worth.  As a photographer looking through a lens, I see the value that each of us possess and expose the value hidden within.
My name is Ida Schuman, born and raised in Texas, married for 20 years and together we have two grown sons.  Our youngest son was diagnosed with High Functioning Autism at the age of 4.  As a result, I have gone from a successful career oriented woman to a stay at home mom, balancing my life between family and my passion, using photography to show others there is another story on the other side of the lens

You cannot photoshop what you don't like about your life.  As a photographer, I get asked time & time again to erase the unwanted, but by showing others a healthier & permanent option, beautiful isn't always healthy but being healthy is always beautiful.

I can't believe it's only been a year since I've met Ida! It seems as if I've known her for a lifetime. Caring, determined, passionate...are a few words that describe her amazing character. I've had the pleasure of working with Ida as a coaching client. For me to see her transformation happen right in front of my eyes every week was phenomenal, to say the least! Her hunger to always improve her perspective, her attitude, her approach, her family, her friendships, her leadership just amazes me. Selfless ambition! She literally took the coaching information and immediately implemented change in her life. I am looking forward to seeing her growth and contribution to the world increase as she continues to personally grow and apply that knowledge. Tony Robbins says, "Knowledge isn't power. Applied knowledge (action) is power." Keep taking action, Ida! - Todd

From the moment I first spoke with Mrs. Ida Schuman I knew she was a woman that truly knew the difference from what is and what could be.  I have witnessed a real transformation over the last 3 years in not only her physical but also in her mental and spiritual growth to help others see and become who they are destined to be.  What many may see as a professional photographer at first glance,  will soon begin to see their true self from "the other side of the lens."  Ida has captured many photos that are memories in an album but has helped so many, myself included, with an improved self reflection.
