I spoke at the Mom 2.0 conference this year about the import of leveraging social media for social change. While there, it was my goal to hear the stories of the women and moms there, so I offered to take headshots. We found a beautiful Japanese garden and grabbed as much of that West Coast Sunshine & good vibes conversation as we could. Later, I was shocked to receive an award for my work. It was a transformative experience to photograph 30 people in 2 days, speak on a topic very important to me and to be recognized by my peers. Looking forward to going back in 2019.
