For todays blog post I wanted to share with you the woman in my life who I would consider my everyday hero. My mom has helped me so much over the years especially when it comes to my blog and all of the behind the scenes work. She encouraged me to start the blog and helped me take all of my photos before I met Andrew. She would never tell me to give up and supported me when everyone else thought I was crazy for starting a blog. I wouldn’t be where I am today if I didn’t have the encouragement of my mom. I feel so lucky to have such an amazing mother and I hope I can be the same way one day. Last summer we got these cute matching dresses from Old Navy and I thought they would be perfect for this photo shoot.
This photo shoot was inspired by the artist Annie Leibovitz who published a book of called Women in 1999 in collaboration with Susan Sontag. This book features portraits of powerful women and the popular series of photographs were accompanied by an exhibition at the Corocan Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
Launched again in London in January 2016 the UBS x Leibovitz collaboration continues to explore and challenge the roles of women today. This art tour will travel to ten host cities over the course of twelves months. Exhibition cities include the following:
• San Francisco
• Hong Kong
• Mexico City
• New York
If you happen to be near or live in one of the host cities then I would highly recommend going to see this exhibition. You can also submit your own photo of your everyday hero by visiting: www.ubs.com/annieleibovitz
