I was honored to be nominated and featured as A Daring Doer on the Spark and Hustle website a few weeks ago. Tory Johnston has a wealth of information on her site about women in small business. The Spark and Hustle Tour is under way and I can’t wait to go and absorb some serious business knowledge! You can check out the entire article here.
Cia, a fellow photographer, contacted me for help with a little project she has been working on. It’s called L.E.G.S (learn.empower.give.support) An excerpt from the artist statement:
“Independent and strong women stand on their own two feet, our legs give us support, they ground us, empower us and they wrap around our lovers gently. They are something to be grateful for. I am looking for everyday women who want to be a part of something larger than themselves and give back to other women. L.E.G.S. mission is to empower women through other women’s experiences. Along with the photo each participant will include a moment when they’ve had to overcome hardship be it abuse, addiction, homlessness or anything that they feel strongly about. Coming out stronger in the end is the positive example I want to highlight.”
The problem? She needed images for her own “legs.” I was happy and honored to be asked to help with such a positive project. Check out her website and the organization she is working with Courageous Woman.
Charla is just the sweetest and Kenny adores her. And of course Kia, their dog, was just happy to be there. When I asked about their story this is what she wrote:
”He fell in love with me on the dance floor, but he’ll say it was the other way around. It took us 9 long years to grow up and figure it all out and then all of a sudden we both just realized life would totally suck without each other. He moved out all his roomies and I moved in & turned his frat house into a home. 8 months later he proposed and made me the happiest girl ever!”
My favorite part – she turned the frat house into a home. These two are truly in love. We are so lucky to be photographing their wedding this summer!
