My Mom: Inspiration, Encouragement and Unconditional Love

I’m going to start sharing a little more of my personal life - I’d like my clients and “fans” to know who I am, and what inspires me.

My post today is about my Mom. I believe that success is possible when you are driven by yourself to be great, and also encouraged by others. My Mom has always been my number one supporter, my shoulder to cry on, and my “push” when I need to move on or try a little harder. She is a successful woman with many talents and accomplishments, and knows the dedication and open-mindedness that is required for achieving your goals. 

She is a beautiful woman inside and out, who truly cares for others, and who believes in helping me create my own path in life, instead of making it for me. So many parents insist on paving the way for their children, and show great disappointment when they stray, or want to do something a little different and not as secure.

Clearly I have not picked the most stable career path. It has been filled with many ups and downs, and at times, I worry that photography will never quite be enough. But my Mom has always been by my side, encouraging me and letting me know that it is okay to not know the future, and to be open to possibilities. 

I wanted to take the time to thank her for always inspiring me, lifting me up, and also bringing me down to earth. 

Love you, Mom!
