I’m So Tired: Motherhood, Work, and the Balance In Between
Saturday - 10:45 am

Hi! I'm Abi and mama to three little souls- Finn, Stone and Indio. My husband and I are college sweethearts and fell in love at second sight. We live in Oakland, CA in a house in the hills with a hairless cat named Stabber and a fish the boys lovingly named Hot Lava. When I'm not working my 24/7 job of being their mama, I'm photographer- shooting mainly weddings. I've been shooting for ten years now. This last year I decided I needed a new challenge and started shooting families as well.  I also co lead a year long mastermind for creatives with Flight Design and teach an online workshop called Barebones. I believe there is nothing more beautiful then watching people come alive and embrace their weird and wild in their work. 

My favorite is helping people figure out who they are at the root of them, and the rawness and vulnerability that comes in the process. The figuring out that rules are meant to be broken, and the finding their eye. Portfolio reviews and mentoring are one of my favorite things. It's like giving permission to people to be themselves. And the fire that happens after? Oh man. It makes my heart explode.

I'm at home trying to clean the never ending mess my boys make, OR out adventuring with them. When we adventure we go hiking and to the forests and the sea.

Beyonce? I mean that's not a music group but she's my fav. Oh or little May. I don't know if I'd want to be in a band, but you know in the movies when the band hears their song on the radio for the first time? I'd want to be there for that.
