Being a photographer, mom, and teacher is a challenging, but rewarding role. As a photographer, I have the opportunity to capture and preserve memories through my art. Whether I'm working on a personal project or taking photos for a client, the ability to freeze a moment in time and share it with others is a unique and special gift I love to share.
Being a mom is one of the most demanding and rewarding roles a person can have. It requires a lot of love, patience, and dedication to raise and care for your children. As a mom and photographer, I have the opportunity to capture and document my own children's lives, which can be a beautiful and meaningful way to remember and celebrate their childhood. I hope they will look fondly at all the images I created when they are older.
Being a teacher is a noble and important profession, which is why I have continued to teach for the past 15 years. Whether I was in a classroom or online, I am passionate about the opportunity to inspire and educate others. As a photographer and teacher, I use my photography skills to help illustrate and enhance lessons, which brings a new dimension to my teaching and engaging students in a unique way.
Balancing these three roles can be demanding, but it is also incredibly worthwhile. I feel lucky to have the opportunity to make a positive impact in three different areas: my art, my family, and my students. It may require some careful time management and organization, but the rewards of being a photographer, mom, and teacher are well worth it. So, these three roles have been a great combination for me because I am passionate about photography, I love my children, and I want to make a difference in the world through education.
