I met Liz when I first moved back to Virginia Beach from Florida! Among the many things that I do besides photography (I am an Aries so apparently that means that I do lots of things!) is teach group fitness. Liz is one of the amazing boss babes at one of the many OneLife Fitness gyms we have here. Fortunately for me, she became my friend before she became one of my bosses! That’s how I know I got the best of all the worlds… plus she’s now stuck with me for life!
Liz is incredible! She is one of the most amazing humans I have ever met. She is funny and kind and immediately makes anyone and everyone feel comfortable in her presence. There is something about her that when you meet her, you just gravitate towards her! She has a light about her that is so genuine and fun and bubbly! She is just so natural and honest that it automatically puts you at ease. She is someone you can let your guard down with and automatically be yourself around!
She is super strong and as a Boss she has the gift of going from light hearted fun to no nonsense. I will never ever forget the time when I was struggling taking over a class and she looked me straight in the eyes and gave me the pep talk that I needed. It was the tough love I needed at the time and her words have stuck with me to this day! I was her friend but in that moment she gave me what I needed most… as an employee. I don’t know many people that can navigate like that very well but she does with grace and she does it every single day beautifully!
When she asked me to capture her family, I was so excited! As a mom Liz is even more fun! Her girls are just amazing! They are both so different but yet they are also the same. They have the most incredibly relationship and you can tell that they truly love each other the way best friends do. I can also see how much love and respect they have for Liz.
We had so much fun on the beach that night! We laughed and played and I truly enjoyed seeing them love on each other!
Thank you Liz for letting me be a part of your family that night! Thank you for choosing me and trusting me with these memories! Thank you for letting me be a part of your life and for always being such a great friend to me! I love you dearly!!!
