Hands down, one of my absolute favorite parts of being a Motherhood Photographer, is our little community of extremely talented photographers. I am so fortunate to be a member of a really amazing group of women who are value inspiring each other, helping each other grow, and the overall community rather than competition. We raise each other up, rather than tear each other down.
They are my tribe. And I would not be here without their support, encouragement and the learning and growth we get from listening to other photographer's experiences.
So I was beyond honored when a member of my tribe from Alabama contacted me to photograph her beautiful family when they were here in Leesburg visiting their family.
If you haven't heard of Julie from Paisley Studios Photography, you really should go check out her beautiful work. She is amazingly talented. She is also a superstar Mama to 4 gorgeous children. I honestly do not know how she does it all, but she runs a successful business, home-schools her children, is an amazing wife and mother and handles it all with beauty and grace.
Truly, her reaching out to me to photograph her family was such an honor and it has been one of the most fulfilling sessions I have ever photographed. So much, in fact, that this past Christmas, Julie sent me a text saying that she had one of images from our session hand painted on a Christmas Ornament. This message, truly made my heart sing. How grateful I am that not only will these images be proudly displayed throughout her home, but also as a special family heirloom that will adorn her Christmas Tree each holiday season.
I can not explain how important my tribe is to me on my photography journey. And how incredibly grateful to have beautiful and inspiring women like Julie from Paisley Studios Photography in this amazing community.
Here are some of my favorite images from our session together. Her family is so beautiful, inside and out. And I hope that they venture up to Loudoun County again soon, or I may need to make a trip down to her!
