How I see my beautiful life - sprinkled with light. 

How I see my beautiful life - sprinkled with light. 

BEHIND THE CAMERA 

 

I AM A MOTHER FIRST.  I HAVE THREE GIRLS WHO ARE TRULY THE BEST THINGS I'VE EVER CREATED AND NURTURED. THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL LITTLE HUMANS AND I'M THANKFUL FOR EACH DAY I'M GIVEN TO BE THEIR MOTHER.  I AIM TO TEACH THEM TO BE STRONG WOMEN WHO GO AFTER THEIR DREAMS. I WORK HARD - EVERY DAY - TO SHOW THEM EXACTLY HOW THAT'S DONE.

EVER SINCE I PICKED UP A CAMERA AS A TEENAGER IN HIGH SCHOOL - I'VE AIMED TO DO NOTHING ELSE BUT PHOTOGRAPH LIFE - HOW I SEE IT. I BELIEVE IN MY VISION. WHATEVER IT IS THEY CHOOSE TO DO IN LIFE - I HOPE THEY TOO BELIEVE IN THEMSELVES - FEARLESSLY - AUTHENTICALLY - RELENTLESSLY.  

WE ENJOY LOOKING UP AT THE SKY WHETHER IT BE AT SUNRISE, SUNSET OR LONG AFTER THE SUN HAS GONE DOWN.  OUR FAMILY FACILITATES THE LINK BETWEEN SCIENCE AND THE ARTS WHICH OFTENTIMES FEULS OUR CONVERSATIONS AT THE DINNER TABLE.

I'VE BEEN MARRIED FOR 10 YEARS AND IT FEELS LIKE OUR GIRLS ARE GROWING SO FAST.  I AM A SPECIAL NEEDS MAMA AND WHILE MY GIRLS ARE HIGH FUNCTIONING - I FEEL PULLED TO CONNECT WITH OTHER FAMILIES WHO HAVE BEEN FACED WITH SIMILAR STRUGGLES AND TRIUMPHS - ESPECIALLY MAMAS. 

SOME THINGS I ESPECIALLY ENJOY BEYOND MY WORK INCLUDE: COOKING, MAKEUP TUTORIALS, MY SIDE HUSTLE: MONAT, MAKING SOAPS, WANDERING AROUND TARGET, THE AMAZON PRIME LIFE, GOOD BEER AND GREAT MUSIC.
