To your child you are the best, you are most amazing person on the planet.

Exist in photographs for them, they don’t see the 10 extra pounds you think you need you loose, they don’t see the greys or the crazy mom hair and the yoga pants that have yesterday’s lunch on them.

They see a soft place to fall, they see snugly hugs, tents made from the bed sheets, the 10th book of the night and a smiling mouth that kisses those little boo-boos.

Your child thinks you are fabulous….get in the damn picture with them. You are perfect, right now.

You’ll be glad you did….

Our mini sessions are the perfect gift for Mother’s Day! Whether your kids are 2 or 42…or anywhere in between.

Special packages available from your session, you’ll see the best images from your session and choose your package.

Hair and make up is available, please contact me for details.

Not suitable for newborns.

What inspires you? 

I am inspired by food, flavour, colour, nature and music.

 

Tell us about what your business offers?

I am a Registered Holistic Nutrition Consultant (RHN) and owner of Mindful Nutrition. I provide a whole food education to create a healthy diet but more than that I use food as a prescription to support healing processes within the body.  I love that not only does my work compliment many other healing modalities, adopting a whole food life diet is a means of prevention and maintaining a healthy mind and body.

 

What is the best thing about being your own boss?

I love being a business owner. I can make my own decisions based on what I feel is the right thing to do.  Service is the focus, people are the focus.  I have been very lucky to spend the last decade of my life creating work that I love. Makes getting up in the morning so much easier.  I never want to call in sick!

 

Tell me about some challenges you have faced?

The biggest challenge I have faced in my business is  getting people to understand what it is that I do and how food can be used to support their health. Many people feel they already know how to eat healthy but there is so much in the media confusing the issue.

 

Thoughts on creating a work and life balance?

Well…. you better love what you do if you own your own business. It is often hard to create balance but necessary still.  There is give and take. You end up spending way more that 40 hrs a week but because you are your own boss you have the freedom of setting the schedule that works for you.  It allows you do make things like yoga on Wednesday mornings a priority.

 

What words of wisdom do you have for other women in business?

Do it! Women have the all the skills necessary to do a great job.  Ask for help. Take training. It is a life long learning adventure.

 

Welcome Bella! Thank you for being part of our spotlight.

It was the perfect opportunity for family photos….both set of grandparents in town at the same time, quite a feat considering one set lives on the other side of the world! With a warm hazy evening, some fabulous sunshine (which I know we are all missing now) and some really awesome people, I’m thrilled to share these with you…

Thank you for choosing me to capture these memories for you, it was my pleasure.

As I come out from all the clutter and mess our fabulous Christmas has left us with I think of the coming year and what it will bring. I am not one to make resolutions; I think they can lead to disappointment when your magical list is just that; a list of things you didn’t do.

In the summer, I’ll still be 10lbs heavier than I want to be, I’ll still be drinking Pepsi (a bit less of it)  but that’s ok too. I’ll wear my bikini, I’ll smile and I may be chubby, but I’ll enjoy every bite of the Mars bar that I eat after my salad. It’s all about moderation and finding your groove.

I am aiming to live my best life. It’s that simple, allow the good stuff in and get rid of the old shitty stuff.

Hmmm…..what do I want for 2015?

 

Happiness, health and vitality, energy, peace, love, acceptance, joy, serenity, gratitude, abundance, work and life harmony, creativity, connection, spirituality, comfort…. just to name a few.

 

Push past boundaries and go for those dreams, and set goals so high they equally scare me and make me giddy at the same time.

More connecting in person and less time on line….if you can’t find me on line, there’s this thing called the telephone.

Let go and get over it already.

Laugh more often…even if it shows my wrinkles, not everyone has been blessed to live long enough to have them.

Pamper myself more.

RELAX…………..

Blessed happiness and abundance to you and yours for 2015.

Tara

So excited for our Women in Business Spotlight!

 

Meet Lindsay, Arbonne International!

 

What inspires you?  

I guess I’m inspired by the human spirit, especially when it is tested. I love when people have the courage to stand up for themselves and what they believe in, even when it’s hard. I love being around strong female leaders who are boldly stepping into & owning their own power. I’m inspired by working with my team as we help each other reach big goals!

Tell us about what your business offers?

I educate people about the importance of using healthy products on their skin & hair. If they are interested in purchasing Arbonne’s pure, safe & beneficial products for themselves and their family, I help them do that. If they are looking for a way to get more out of life (time, money, personal growth), I help them start their own Arbonne business. The business is truly the best ‘product’ I have to offer and I love seeing the positive changes it creates in people’s lives!

What is the best thing about being your own boss?

At this point in my business, I still have a ‘day job’, so I don’t think I can fully appreciate this in some ways. However, the reason I’m working towards creating a full time income with Arbonne is so I will have more freedom to choose how I spend my time. Before starting this business, I never realized that I don’t truly ‘own’ my time, and having two young children brings my time into a whole new perspective.

Tell me about some challenges you have faced?

Despite the fact that network marketing is the fastest growing business trend in Canada, there is still a negative stigma about the business model that has definitely been challenging for me. The upside to this is it has caused me to really think through my own beliefs and values, and to gain enough confidence to not let other peoples opinions define my own opinion of myself.

Thoughts on creating a work and life balance?

This is another reason I’m building an Arbonne business! I’m working towards a future where I will be able to work my business around my life rather than working my life around my job. Right now I’m working full time at my job, part time on my business, and my husband and I are raising a 2yr old & 5 yr old. Thank God my husband cooks & is a very hands-on Dad! We definitely don’t have it all figured out, but I’m willing to be out of balance in the short term to have greater balance in the long term.

 

What words of wisdom do you have for other women in business?

Build your belief in yourself and what you have to offer & nothing can stop you! In my experience, this belief is built over time by continuous personal development and surrounding yourself with people who share or support your journey.

If you are interested in some fabulous products (I love, love, love the Citrus body scrub) or if you want to see how an Arbonne business can help you achieve your goals, email Lindsay today .
