She walked into the studio for her makeover and glamour photo shoot and I remember asking her a bit apprehensively: "So, will your boys be ok with the baby sitter for the afternoon while we have your photo shoot and makeover?" (I was actually starting to wonder if I was going to be the reason the baby sitter was going to have a tough afternoon with two boys looking for their mom!) But thankfully my fears were quickly re-assured by Holli's friendly smile and an enthusiastic reply of: "Oh, they'll be just fine!"
Meet the lovely Holli. Wife, a busy mom to two very active little boys, writer, and entrepreneur.
A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of providing her with an afternoon filled with not only an in-studio glamour photo shoot and professional makeover and styling from the talented Angela LaFlamme, but a chance for her to take a break from her busy schedule.
It was a smile-filled afternoon being able to chat with Holli and learn more about her, her two young sons, being a wife, and yes, even chatting about some pretty awesome mineral-based mascara she brought along for the makeover! (Hey, we're women, when we chat, you can bet we chat about everything!)
Holli, you were a joy to work with and absolutely rocked the photo shoot! Thank you for not only trusting me to photograph you, but for also just being a friendly face to connect with and get to know as a person. I hope that these photographs remind you every day that in the midst of being a busy mom, wife, and business woman, you are valued and awesome not because of the many hats you wear, not because of what was accomplished or missed on your to-do list, but simply because you are YOU.
And of course, here is a little more about Holli!
I am a freelance writer and I own a skincare business. I love
helping people correct common skin conditions so they don’t have to feel
self-conscience about their skin and can confidently put their best face
forward! I truly love helping people, it makes my heart sing!
I am passionate about fitness and
am an avid Crossfitter. I also enjoy spending time outdoors hiking and golfing.
I have always been a sports fanatic. I enjoy watching professional football,
and baseball as well!
My advice to other mom entrepreneurs is to remember that you can’t do it all, and that is ok! It
doesn’t mean you are failing! We put so much pressure on ourselves to be
perfect, but just remember that you are doing your best and that is all that
matters! Just keep going and don’t quit!
Happy Friday and have a fabulous weekend!
