In this small world that we live in, there are special people that touch lives in deep and meaningful ways.
Kelly, AKA “Mochamomma”, is one of those unique, wonderful and amazing people.
She’s an assistant principal at a middle school, mother of four, a writer, and one sassy, classy lady. That’s only scratching the surface of the world of Mochamaomma.
Our paths crossed online. Somewhere her friends and my friends intersected and I was introduced to the plain-truth-speaking, vibrant, joyful, full of life Kelly, who’s name shall forever be Mochamomma in my mind. You can follow her and be enriched by her insights by reading her online blog, found at http://www.mochamomma.com/ I guarantee that you will react, hopefully in a good way.
Here, Kelly is enjoying the travelling red dress of her friend Jenny (The Blogess) who bought it “FOR NO PARTICULAR OCCASION”. The dress travels to friends that Jenny has made.
As you can tell, it fits the Mochamomma personality to a “T” – It’s sassy, bold and pretty, just like Kelly is.
When Kelly found out that she was on the list to get the dress, I offered to take her portrait wearing it. Kelly excitedly accepted and we settled down to wait. Finally, this week, the dress came, and Kelly reached out to me. We settled on today around sunset and chose the Sugar Creek Covered Bridge for a location. My Karen Sue came to be my assistant, and help me see things that I wasn’t seeing. She always has better eyes for composition than I do. We work well together.
It turned out to be a popular place. About seven other groups with photographers were there as well, and a group of about 40 folks celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Sangamon County Historical Society. We almost moved on to another location, but the light was just right, so we moved around all the folks.
So, here’s to you, Mochamomma, AKA Kelly, and to that wonderful red dress. You and the dress were made for each other.
We all had a ball together.
