As a mother and a photographer, I stand proud for all the Mom’s With Cameras in our industry.

Nearly sixteen years ago, I gave birth to my first baby, and at that time, I picked up a camera and started taking photos of him. He was intense (still is), and what fascinated me was not that I was able to capture how beautiful he was (still is) but that I was able to capture his intense personality. I became hooked.

My whole life up until that point, I thought I would like to be a stay-at-home mom, but boy was I wrong. Being home with a very intense newborn made me feel isolated and lost. I needed an outlet, and photography became exactly that.

Mom's with cameras make great photographers and business owners!

I am obsessed with my children, but being a stay-at-home mom would never be enough for me, and it’s okay if it’s not enough for you either. It’s okay to want more. Gasp.

You are so much more than a mother.

You are sexy, and fun, and serious, and smart, and interesting, and funny, and strong, and innovative, and nurturing, and tender, and creative, and every damn thing you want to be.

Photography unleashed an artist and an entrepreneur that I never knew existed. Photography saved me. Taking photos of my baby boy has turned into a multi-faceted mini-empire over the past 16 years. I am proud of myself for sticking with it. It makes me so proud that my kids get to see their mama making a living as an artist.

So, like I said, I stand for all the Mom’s With Cameras in our industry. There is a solid place for us at this table. And this is only the beginning.

As a mom, pursuing your passion for photography can be an incredible outlet for creativity and personal fulfillment. Photography allows you to capture special moments in time, express your creativity, and create art that you can be proud of.

While it may not always be easy to juggle motherhood and a photography business, it is possible.

And get this, being a mother makes you a master at time management and a master at working with kids. You can use these skills like I did to run a photography business that focuses on families and children, if you so chose.

Being a mom with a camera can be a powerful and rewarding experience.

It’s essential to remember that you are more than just a mother, and pursuing your passion for photography can help you express your creativity and achieve personal fulfillment.

I am so glad you are here! Us Mom’s with cameras need to stick together!
