My Journey to Here...

2017: I'm in my early 30's, I have 2 beautiful babies, a successful full time career in technology sales, I'm building a photography business I'm passionate about, and I'm drowning in fear and anxiety.  I realized if I didn't make changes to my life, I would inevitably destroy it.  My anxiety level had reached an all time high and it was time for me to just breathe again.

So I took a step back and I've spent 2018 in a conscious state of mindfulness...

Starting January 1, 2018, I made self-love my #1 priority.  That meant creating an at-home yoga practice that I could actually do instead of excuse away.  I began meditating daily, allowing myself to feel what it is I need to, want I want out of my work, my vision, my images.  Realizing that I don't want to live my life in fear of rejection or failure.  I wanted to connect deeply even if it was only for myself.  It wasn't until I attended the Click Away 2018 conference in the beautiful Omni Resort at Amelia Island that I began the process of discovering my path.  I came home and immediately started my focus on Motherhood Photography.  

To show women in all stages of motherhood that you are worth it and connected is my chosen path.  You are worth the self-discipline it takes to make real change in your life.  You are worth your dreams and they are there for you to take hold of.  You are worth the stillness that mindfulness brings and realizing that you are exactly where you need to be at this exact moment in time...
