Women Mini Session: Valerie (my mom!)

Meet Valerie
aka my mom
aka my best friend
aka the funniest person ever.

That's right people - this is my mom! I'm just a little bit proud ;) Some you may also know her as my assistant! haha Yeah - we like to keep everything in the family around here lol. My mom is seriously one of the most amazing women you will ever meet. I could not even begin to tell you all of the sacrifices she has made for me and our family my entire life.  My mom and I have the same sense of humor - we laugh at the most ridiculous times - something the rest of the family has a hard time understanding. For example, when I asked my mom why she wanted to do this session she replied "I'm going to need good pics for my obituary some day" - I honestly do not know what I would do without her.
I promise you my mom didn't have me when she was 10 years old - she is just that amazingly beautiful - that and I look older than what I really am haha. I was so excited when my mom said she wanted to do the mini session - one because she totally deserves a little bit of pampering and two because I knew I would cherish these pictures of her forever.When I asked her what her greatest achievement was she answered "my children" - thanks mom ;)
My mom works for the Methodist Children's Home - she basically takes care of kids all day that need a little extra attention. Yeah, I don't have that kind of patience, but my mom is so selfless and loving - she is so great with those kids.
Mom - thanks for being the best ever, I love you!



  1. I think your mom is really nice too! All you ladies made me feel so comfortable and I felt like I fit right in :) Nice pic mom!
