Ashley

Here is our final lady of the project, she is certainly not the least. I love her vibe & how beautiful she is!

Here is Ashley’s story:

The reason I chose to participate in the photo shoot is because, I wanted to showcase the ability to be many things at once. I am a Mother of two beautiful babies. I am a wife. I am a sister and a daughter. Last year I was promoted to a new posistion as The Vice President of operations for a Boutique commercial Real Estate development firm. I have felt as though l am not the stereo typical choice for this role. But my boss saw something in me that made him feel I was capable, and in this mostly conservative working environment, I challenge the standard. I am so proud to be multi-faceted. I love being able to wear many hats. I can be in a conference room with investors dressed nicely at work... I can be on-site with contractors in jeans, a hard hat and boots. I can be at home with my kids cooking dinner in yoga pants, or I can be in leather, ready to hop on the back of my husbands Harley. I think all too often as women we are trying to adhere to a standard that is set forth by someone else and I loved the idea that I don’t have to choose one thing.  I can have it all. I owe this realization to my Husband who has empowered me to be everything I’ve ever wanted to be and supported me through each new role. I think it’s so invaluable to have someone who loves and supports me unconditionally and makes me feel as though anything is possible. I hope this project empowers women to embrace all of their different sides and own all of their many roles. 

Thank you for making all of us feel beautiful! 

Thank you to all of the beautiful women that shared their story with us you will forever have a special place in my heart. To all of the women out there, I want to tell your story- your hopes, your dreams, your struggles, your outlook. Let me tell it.
