“This wasn’t just taking a picture. It was a journey.”
Portrait Session Giveaway winner Emily finally has her reveal and sees her pictures for the first time. Watch her reaction for yourself and then listen to what she says afterwards when she sits down with me for a post-reveal interview.
Emily’s journey gave her a chance to explore and discover herself. She saw many different sides of herself—sides that reflected different times in her life. As she said in her interview,
“I see the me from before I had kids. I see the me from my early time with my husband, before we were husband and wife. I see the mom in there as well. I think I see a little bit of my future self—the wisdom that I’ve garnered over time.”
When asked why it was important for her to have your portrait made, she talked about her kids and how she wants them to see her when they’re grown,
“I want them to be able to see these sides of me. To know that I’m not just their mom. I am a woman and I have parts of me that haven’t come out to play for a while. I want them to show their kids and to show them that was their mom.”
