As time passes I really start to appreciate pictures and how they make memories last. They are a great tool for my work, to show off the new trends at the store. But they are so much more than that. A picture can spark a memory or take you back in time to a moment you forgot about.
When I met Tammy 15 years ago I was so excited to find someone passionate about life, I had just started my store and needed some pictures for an ad campaign to show our new clothing lines. Tammy immediately understood the style and reason we were in love with the new dresses and tops from Paris and rounded up some friends to do a photo shoot. She has a way of capturing that sparkle in everyone, showing their inner beauty and the feeling of the moment.
That first photo shoot has turned into a friendship, and many years of baby and family pictures as well as so many fun photo shoots for my businesses Tonic and Farminista.
I am so thankful for her and for so many creative people that give so much of themselves everyday and share their gifts with others. Putting yourself out for people to see and judge is the reason so many people gaurd their talents and keep them to themselves, don't do that. Do what you love, take some risks and be like Tammy😄
