My darling friend Leslie, at takesthevillage.com chose me as mom of the month, and asked if she could come photograph me and my kids in our home, and asked if I would answer a few questions about motherhood and creativity over on her blog.

The fabulous news, is that Leslie is going to share her photography secrets with one of my awesome readers, for free! Details below.
These are a few of my favorite photos from the shoot in my home.
Some of the things that I love about Leslie's photography style, is her use of color and light...
And, how she captures everyday moments. She is gifted! I feel so lucky to have these photos and to be a mom!
I certainly don't feel like, Mom of the Month, and I think my kids were a little confused as to why she picked me, haha ;) Thank you Leslie! I am honored.
Here is a little clip of what I had to say:
Do you have any advice for mothers trying to find their talents?
Each one of us has talents that are so special, and individual. If there were a million of me walking around... life would be so boring! My advice would be this: Don't be afraid! Try new things. See what makes you happy. Find your own personal style (trial and error is the best way). If you don't like a project you have done, or an outfit you have worn, tweak it until you do. It took me 7 years and lots of moving furniture and thrifting, to actually feel like I nailed my living room. Be happy for and supportive of your friends in their creative endeavors! Don't give up. Don't be too hard on yourself. Have fun. If thrifting is fun for you, do it! If running is fun, do that. Don't be afraid to start. Don't worry if it's not perfect the first time!
