One of the things I have realised since becoming a mother and running my own business, is that there are so many amazing, strong mothers out there doing the same and more and they need to be seen and to be celebrated.
And so, as a newborn and family photographer, I wanted to go further along on this journey and photograph the women raising their amazing children while still raising their other ‘child’ - their business!
Most importantly, I wanted to go beyond the ‘headshot’ and show you family life as a mum and business owner.
A few months ago I caught up with the first amazing lady I’m going to celebrate - Angela Fogarty-Mendez from Pregfit.
I met Angela at a local business mums group that I attended, where a bunch of us get together, unload, get inspired, inspire others and work out the kinks in our own businesses.
Angela runs an online business focusing on maternity fitness wear called Pregfit, and one of the things that sets her part is that she is one of the most authentic and thoughtful women I have met. She manages to infuse this authenticity throughout the business. Pregfit isn’t a faceless online business, because Angela really does live and breath her brand.
When I caught up with Angela and her two beautiful little girls though, what we talked about and agreed with is how much of a journey being a mother is, and it’s a journey that is rarely seperate from our business. As mothers, we are constantly juggling time for our business and time for our family and a lot of business is done while the kids are running around too.
So here it is, Angela’s life in images. Working from home, with her beautiful daughters Miranda and Bianca, and juggling time, energy, business, family, everything!
And stay tuned! Angela is going to be creating an awesome new blog early next year that will take a holistic and soulful approach to motherhood and the journey we are on, hopefully connecting mothers to others on the same journey.
