yep. the volunteer state has been good to me!
one of my newest friends and sistogs is the amazing trunetta atwater of trunetta atwater photography and the Fancy movement which aims to empower all women. when i first moved to west tennessee, i did a search for photographers in my area to see if there was someone i could connect with. tru was one of websites i found and i reached out to her. in a few days we were already cackling laughing and sharing a love of panera. so when she needed a photographer for the amazing concept event “a healthier you meets fancy,” she reached out to me to be that person.
now, how do stephanie and lakeesha fit in? stephanie is created a facebook group in january 2013 called a healthier you (AHY) where more than 1,000 women of color (including tru) form a community of support to live healthier lives. stephanie and tru joined forces to get the word out about both AHY and Fancy. enter lakeesha is a member of AHY, tru’s office mate, AND an awesome event planner based in jackson. sounds like a match made in heaven, right?
enter over 200 women from as far as georgia and you get the “a healthier you meets fancy” event held on september 12, 2013 at the carnegie center for the arts. vendors, a fashion show, giveaways galore, music, and more made for a great evening. they did an impeccable job! can’t wait to see the next thing from these ladies. 🙂
