Hey Darlin! Happy #Milspouse Appreciation Day!
Every once in a while we meet people who are so strong that make you wonder “are they super humans?” This is the case of a fellow mom; her name is Andrea. If you ever want to meet the face of strength, just take a look at this picture. Meet Andy, a fellow military wife who is a fantastic photographer by the way! Andrea has four beautiful children; she is a strong military wife, photographer, student, and a positive and great friend. I have learned several things from her, and I bet she doesn’t even know it. I’ve learned: • It’s okay to give yourself a second chance to find true happiness. • When the time is right, you will find “your person” as she calls it. • You should never turn your back on your talents. • It’s okay to have a friendly smile every day. • For the love of God, take pictures with your children. Don’t just stand behind the camera. *In particular is something I am getting better at. Andrea has no problem with this at all; she captures those beautiful memories with her children with her in those pictures. Such is the case that I had a difficult time finding a picture of her, by herself :) Andrea and I met back in 2011 shortly after my family and I got stationed in South Carolina. I didn’t meet her during the happiest time of her life, but that didn’t stop her from moving forward in life, from growing her photography business and from saying yes to her dreams. See, stories like Andrea inspire me to be a better mother, a better wife; her pretty face reminds me to wear my smile every single day because you never know when it will make a difference in someone’s day. See, I often wonder how this military spouse does it because life can get very busy with four children you know? She is a nursing student, owner & photographer of Hey Darlin. Just a note here, Andrea donates $20 to Paw4Warriors from every session she books. If you are in the Bluffton, Beaufort, Hilton Head, and Savannah areas get in touch with her, and she will be happy to capture those beautiful moments. Andy also travels all over the United States to take pictures of weddings. Even if you are not in her area, you should totally follow her work on https://www.facebook.com/pages/Hey-Darlin/122442594465475?fref=ts or visit her website at: http://www.heydarlinphotography.com/ Andrea- I hope you have a fantastic Mother’s Day & Happy Military Spouse Appreciation Day! <3 To Kallie Shoes readers- Do you know an inspiring lady in your life?
