SHE WAS UNSTOPPABLE, NOT BECAUSE SHE DID NOT HAVE FAILURES OR DOUBTS, BUT BECAUSE SHE CONTINUED ON DESPITE THEM.
— Beau Taplin

I'm the photographer for unstoppable women and their families.

 

I honor their story because (too often) we hear that we don’t matter. We are told that we aren't enough (good, beautiful, strong, smart, etc.). As a result, we try to do it all, be it all and sacrifice it all. And yet we are still ashamed, full of guilt, or doubtful of our efforts. We hide our passions and pursuits inadvertently, which only diminishes us even more. So we feel like failures and (at times) we no longer recognize the person staring back in the mirror.

 

We work hard. We are devoted to our families. We contribute to society.
We make a difference! We are the leaders of the next generation.
We are the advocates, bosses, change makers, coaches, mompreneurs, presidents, survivors, teachers, volunteers and visionaries.

 

I photograph women because the next generation deserves to see what bold, brilliant and confident women (role models) look like! I photograph Mothers because our children deserve to have tangible memories of their brave, loving and beautiful Mamas. I am passionate about sharing authentic stories so that others can be encouraged and inspired by the real life (struggles, pursuits and triumphs) of women (like them).

I celebrate women because I need them to know that they are appreciated. Their life and story holds deep value.

We matter and we are certainly enough!
