In celebration of Mother’s Day, my next post is dedicated to two special ladies. My mother was a single parent, but I was raised by several “Mammas.” In fact, I have two Godmothers whom I adore.
My Godmother, Anne, has been around all of my life. I’m sure she and my mother had several conversations about dealing with me as a teenager. She’s the sweet Godmother who always knows the right things to say and offers sage advice.
My Godmother, Vernell is a riot. I credit her with talking my mother into allowing me to have any kind of social life in high school. She’s who I went to (and still do) for advice on men…she keeps it way real! LOL
These two women have been extremely influential in my life. They are wonderful community servants and role models for all young women they meet.
As I mentioned, my life has been shaped by several strong women and I photographed several (but not all of them) with my mother last year.
