Beating the cold weather blues one bouquet of hyacinth at a time. 🌸 . (p.s. Did you guys ever see the British sitcom “Keeping Up Appearances”? It was a huge part of my childhood and I can’t ever hear the word hyacinth without thinking of the main character on the show. 😂) . Back to #womenmakemaine tomorrow! It’s a good one so be sure to check in. ❤️
#repost (sorry for the duplicates) - (poise pose 🙄) I was asked to participate in a series called #womenmakemaine created and photographed by the talented miss @nina.cutter (although I have no business rollin with ladies - they be 🙌🏼) and the out come has been truly inspiring. I love maine and think the people of Maine make it the incredible state it is. We are all fighting our own fight and it’s the people who surround us that keep us keeping on. Strength in numbers kids - Support your people ✌🏼 ・・・ I’ve always believed that if you have a story inside of you, you should share it. If you have an idea that you’d like to build or invent something, you should create it. If you have a vision that could make the world a slightly better place, it’s your responsibility to deliver it to the rest of us. All it takes is the courage to get started and the persistence to push past the inevitable bumps in the road. . . Defeat is always looming and obstacles will constantly enter your path. It's the difference between allowing these obstacles to overtake you or accelerating past them that gives you the chance, hopefully, to reach success.” . Sarah Madeira Day is an artist with a passion for the outdoors. She's been a distance runner for many years and gathers most of her images and inspiration from her runs. Her goal is to create a variety of pieces at different price points so that everyone has access to beautiful art in their homes. #womeninbusiness #makers #supportlocal #believeinyourself #flashofdelight #thatsdarling #mainemakers #maine
(Poise pose 🙄) I was recently asked (although I am highly under qualified) to participate in a #womenmakemaine series developed and photographed by the fiercely talented @nina.cutter and am blown away by the women featured in this series (and really, all the people who make Maine). Strength in numbers kids - support your people ✌🏼💗#makers @nina.cutter ・・・ I’ve always believed that if you have a story inside of you, you should share it. If you have an idea that you’d like to build or invent something, you should create it. If you have a vision that could make the world a slightly better place, it’s your responsibility to deliver it to the rest of us. All it takes is the courage to get started and the persistence to push past the inevitable bumps in the road. . Sarah shares: "Success as an artist looks to be a mixture of passion, research, support, drive and the choice to just go for it. I recently heard an interview with inventor James Dyson where he talked about luck, success, and achievement. Like me, Dyson is a distance runner. When he spoke about his accomplishments he said, ‘Take long-distance running ... you only succeed by doing a huge amount of training... having great stamina (and) understanding that other people are also feeling tired. So, when you feel tired, you should accelerate. That's when you start winning...when you feel like giving up is precisely the point everybody else gives up. It's at that point you must put in extra effort. If you do that, success is literally just around the corner.’ . It seems to me, this advice can be applied to any passion. Defeat is always looming and obstacles will constantly enter your path. It's the difference between allowing these obstacles to overtake you or accelerating past them that gives you the chance, hopefully, to reach success.” .

A couple of months ago, my lovely friend Nina (@nina.cutter) invited me to participate in a photo project she has been working on - #womenmakemaine . The goal of her project is to feature creative female entrepreneurs from Maine during the month of March. Nina fittingly chose the month of March as International Women's Day is celebrated next Thursday, the 8th. I am honored & humbled to be included alongside this incredible group of talented, creative & inspiring women. Please follow along with @nina.cutter to read more about Betty Louise Studio and to meet some really fabulous and empowering women throughout the month. I can't wait! . . . Also, on the 8th, @westelmportlandme is hosting an event to celebrate International Women's Day from 6-8 pm. Nina has been asked to participate and will be sharing the portfolio from her #womenmakemaine photo series! . . . Congratulations, Nina! I'm very proud of you and your work! Thank you for inspiring all of us! ❤ 📸: @nina.cutter
Today my darling friend @nina.cutter kicks off her #womenmakemaine series, and yours truly has been featured. I’ve copied below Nina’s beautiful words about feminism and femininity...and all I can say is that I am honored and I am proud. Proud of my friend, proud of myself, and proud of my community. • “It’s been said that a woman who grows to love herself becomes convinced of her social worth. This, in turn, extends to rightful social demands: more love, more money, more sex, more commitment to children, and better health. In other words, if a woman loves her femaleness, she champions its rights. Jennifer Bravo embodies this idea, and her goal is to help people achieve wellness through balance, self-love, and nourishing foods.” Words and 📸 by @nina.cutter • Please go check out Nina’s post to read what I have to say about being a female creative entrepreneur. And be sure to follow along for the rest of her series. You’re going to meet some truly incredible women if you do. • • • #women #maine #feminism #womenempowerment #womencreatives #empowerment #empoweringwomen #bethechange #proudfriend #portlandme #portlandmaine #thewomenofportlans #creativesofportland

This month I'll be on there other side of the camera for an amazing project by @nina.cutter, #womenmakemaine . I'm excited aaaaand a little uncomfortable with being a subject rather than the artist. 😏 Most of all, I'm SO honored to be included in this group of amazing women. So far this year, I have found myself trying more new things, putting myself out there in ways that I'm not always comfortable with...and so far, I have to say it's been GOOD. It has always been important for me to find connections with people I meet; it's one of the reasons I love photography. Even when you've barely met, you're invited IN. You get to share in some of the most special moments of other's lives: weddings, pregnancies, births, babies, growing families, remembrances. I don't know if I can fully express how thankful I am for everyone who takes the time to share their life with me, camera in hand or not. Just know that however briefly it may last, it mattered.
Excited to a part of this inspiring project celebrating other women business owners. Follow along in March for more! #womenowned #mainewomen #makers #creatives #hardworkinghands #interiordesign #textiles #womenmakemaine #dowhatyoulove #workingmomma • • • #Repost @nina.cutter with @get_repost・・・About six months ago, I was sitting in a restaurant with some of my best girlfriends. We were laughing, nodding, ordering more food and drinks, and enjoying each other’s stories. It was a feeling of belonging and inspiration. But most importantly, it was a feeling of power. Is there anything stronger than a bonded group of women? Is there anything that we can’t achieve if we do it together? Maine is filled with bright, hard-working, brave and creative women that are changing the fabric of their communities. In celebration, I’m excited to announce a photography project coming to my Instagram account in March where I will feature women entrepreneurs from Maine. At the risk of sounding dramatic, it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done. 💪🏼 I hope you’ll follow along. Help me spread the word with #womenmakemaine .✨✨✨✨✨✨
