Mentors: an important piece of success

As a journalism teacher, knowing photography just came along with the long list of things I needed to be proficient in. Once I had kids, I was trying to freeze moments in time for my family since we didn’t live near them.

Sarah from Sarah Jo Photography has been an amazing photographer and given my family so many wonderful memories. More recently, she's been an amazing mentor, helping me figure out how to start a new business.

When we moved to DC, I found Sarah Jo Photography and fell in love with Sarah’s  lifestyle style, her easygoing attitude, and her unique eye. She’s captured so many memories for us…newborn photos of both of my boys, birthdays, a session with my mom. Her art is everywhere in my house. No exaggeration. She encouraged me to try photography myself and has mentored me answering a million questions along the way. This week she moves to a new home. I’m so sad. (And I’ll never be in pictures with my family again!!) Sarah, thank you for the gifts you gave me and so many families. You’ll be so missed!

One thing I have realized is that no matter which hat I am wearing—teacher, mom, wife, photographer, dog mom, military spouse—it’s important to find mentors. I’ve been lucky to have so many people I admire who have been willing to help me out, encourage me, and give me tools to help me succeed. I know that I wouldn’t be able to make it without all of these wonderful people. So, thank you to all of my mentors–Patty, Chuck, Fr. Kevin, Avis, Stephen, Brian, Lisa, Leah, Yvette, Corby, Joy, Sarah…I’m so lucky to have crossed paths with so many amazing people who have made all of the facets of Teresa a better person.
