First of all, I loved sharing stories with other moms. Photography or mommy related. I met SO many amazing women who let me in to their lives, their struggles, their daily drive to be MORE. As women we need to spend more time embracing each other, and supporting each other to lift each other up. At the end of the day, we are all just trying our best. Right?
Which led me to how each of these women continue to push themselves to grow artistically and fundamentally every day to always challenge themselves for MORE. For themselves, and for their children. My own family was my inspiration to switch gears into Families, Children and Babies. I absolutely love it.
Words hardly describe the feeling you get as a parent experiencing all your child's "firsts". Their superpower ability to change your mood like a flip of a switch…that joy they feel that is so infectious it consumes you. Or even that feeling you get every time your child throws themselves into you and wraps their tiny little arms all the way around your body. As tight as they can squeeze, their body just caves into you and your crying because your just so damn happy. Or what about that little whisper ... "I love you mommy". I don't ever want those moments to end…ever. My heart burst wide open every time. This is what makes me happy. This is what life is all about. This is what should be cherished forever.
I raise my children, work full time and also run my business. This is my motivation. This is what drives me to be the best I can. Whether it be Jessi, mom, or photographer. Overall, whatever it is. I am their role model. They depend on me. I want them to be the best version of themselves. May their passion arise challenges that guide them as mine continue to do for me, mold them and push them to become everything and more.
