Several months ago I read a blog post via facebook of a local photographer inviting Women in the community to share their stories of overcoming adversity in their lives. A selection would be chosen and a photo shoot organised culminating in an exhibiton of the photo's at the end. Something about this sparked me into action, I wrote a brief passage of my experience and sent it of to Robeccer at Adori Studios. I received a very warm response and we made a time to meet, I turned up for my shoot some weeks later, not knowing what to expect, just that I was being fitted out by a lovely local boutique for my dress, and borrowed some divine wings from a friend - thank you Johanna.
I won't share the details of the story just now, this will form part of the exhibition, but I am delighted to share a link to Robeccer's blog showing her recent entry into the APPA'S (Australian Professional Photographers Awards) where one of the photo's she took of me and another beautiful forest water-fall shot both won her Silver Awards!! Congratulations Bec!
The exhibition will be held on Friday 12 August at Adori Studios in Mooloolaba.

“There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic.”
