#TBT 2014 shooting the @Scosha Spring campaign. This is one of the many posts that got deleted when my IG got hacked. I #love all the pics we took and how they remind me of the #time before @H.Crowne when I was just a #jewelry lover and collector. Getting to meet and work w/ #Scosha definitely gave me a bit of #inspiration and #motivation because she makes being a #RenaissanceWoman look so effortless! She is an #artist and #adventure gal, plus #mother and wife. She actually directed the whole photo shoot with her #infant daughter on her hip #breastfeeding between set-ups. I often think back to her example of modern womanhood. It's so seldom that I get to see it in action, with all its moving parts.I aspire to maintain the level of #joy and #zen mastery she displayed that day. To be a woman of #achievement is great, but to keep the warmth and love around all that you've achieved seems to be the greatest achievement of all
