This one is a long time coming.
One of my dearest friends is the mastermind behind Suite Paperie . We first met when she was just quitting her day job to really devote 100% of her focus into her business. She was looking to rent some office space and ended up bunking up with some fellow dreamers at my old office. To say our crew loved her instantly is an understatement. I think we even told her she could move in that day if she wanted to.
Thus began a great friendship with Becca and I for many more years to come. At the time, I had not even really toyed around with photography as a legit thing in my life yet. If that makes sense. Sure it was a passive hobby of mine but nothing beyond taking photos on vacation and the occasional weekend jaunt out in the city. That's pretty much most people. But at one point things shifted for me and photography needed to become a much bigger part of my life than it was so far to date. Becca was by far one of the biggest cheerleaders of mine to just go for it! And there's been some days where I've doubted myself, but Becca will be the first to pull me up by my bootstraps to say that I'm thinking crazy thoughts.
To see her build her business and see it grow so rapidly, has been an incredible inspiration for me. Not only that, but we've become mothers together around the same time and really leaned on each other as we transitioned into the role of "working mom" and attempting to juggle it all. Her hard work and awe-inspiring creative genius is something our girlfriends and I are humbled by. She's seriously kicking ass and taking names and really a force to be reckoned with when it comes to her growing business.
At home, she is the most amazing wife and mom. Her daughter has cooler clothes than I do. And while I know motherhood is not this, she somehow makes it look effortless. Even though I know we've all had our rough days, she makes being a working mom look super cool. I was lucky enough to capture this #girlboss and her crew prior to her son being born. I can't wait to continue to watch her grow her business and grow these amazing kids.
