A few weeks ago, I previewed a shoot from the owner of Take A Break Massage Therapy, Erika Denney. Born and raised in San Jose, Erika is not only a business owner and shaking things up in her own career, but also a loving mom to a beautiful little girl named Labella.
What I remember most about my own first meeting with Erika is that you can immediately see that she is a no-nonsense go-getter, full of life and a passion to not only build a successful business doing what she loved but exerting that same passion and energy into being the best mother as well.
Erika, I am thankful to have met you. It is refreshing to be around your energy and conviction as it challenges to me to grow, to think outside of the box, and most importantly, to be unafraid to just go out and get it! It was an honor to photograph you and also learn a little more about who you are as a business owner, a mother, and as a person. Keep it up, girl - the world needs more women like you who are unafraid to shake things up.
