We are all biased when it comes to our children and their special talents and unique abilities.  But I have to say, I’ve been absolutely amazed by the children of others who are so determined and committed to being the best they can be.  At a young age, it’s just spectacular to see.  I remember when I was young and tried many different activities…but nothing ever really stuck.  I don’t think I had that “fire” in me to really take any one interest too seriously.  There is one particular young lady who has a passion like no other.  It’s mind blowing.  She’s only seventeen and already on her way to becoming an accomplished photographer.  She has won several awards, runs her own business, has an established list of clients and has even been accepted into a prestigious art school in Nashville.  All I can say is WOW.  To be that young and so ambitious.  I know this young woman very well and what captivates me most about her is her realness and uninhibited spirit.  She’s not afraid to put herself out there and be heard.  She has so much charisma.  She’s also warm, sweet and caring at the same time.  She has taken care of Maya a few times so they had a special relationship.  I asked Eden to do a photo shoot with Maya.  Something tasteful and fun.  As I watched Eden in action, I was taken by her professionalism and fierce determination to capture Maya’s character and personality through the most incredible shots.  She was NOT afraid to take risks, dressing Maya in amazing costumes from her special wardrobe collection and carefully orchestrating every angle and position.  Eden let her imagination take over and produced such exquisite work.  I’d never seen such drive in one individual.  Her dream is to a become an international high fashion photo photographer.  *** Pretty confident she will *** …and by looking at her work, you would already think she was an industry veteran.  This is the type of young woman who can and will inspire young girls like my daughter to be the BEST she can be and that success can happen with confidence, hard work and determination.  You get what you put in.  This is the difference between those who succeed and those who ‘just get by’…we’re so proud of you, Eden!!
