What advice would I give my 20-year-old self…
Your heart speaks to you through your feelings deep within, while fear speaks through others and judgments out there.
Follow your heart over your fears.
We all experience many lifetimes in this one life. What did you find were the most poignant changes as you entered your 40s?
In my early 40s, I made a drastic decision that changed my life dramatically.
Through the many difficulties that came from that decision, I gained immense perspective & began to live my life with more intention.
Six years ago I met my husband, and for the first time in my life, I experience unconditional love.
All things work together for the good – just be patient!!
Thoughts on aging…
The lovely Donna Hay hair and makeup, while we all chatted and listened to music. I’ve known Michellé many years in the photography industry, and we’ve done a few shoots together in the past, and always had a good laugh. Michellé has this dynamic energy and complete zest for life. She is the type of person that makes everyone around her feel comfortable and welcome. She recently married the love of her life, Hannes. And he surprised her and purchased some additonal portraits for her from her 40 over 40 session. I absolutely love how Michellé’s spiritedness comes through in these portraits.
