I have know Peace and Katy for sometime now. Firstly through Flickr and a joint love of photography and more recently through their company, Connect2Mums. A few weeks ago, Katy was nominated for Cairns Women’s Business Club Young Entrepreneur of the Year. I was invited to be a guest at her table by the beautiful Jill from Simply Hampers, Peace, Katy and their mum. It was a fabulous night and to top it off Katy won her category and is now the 2011 Cairns Women’s Business Club Young Entrepreneur of the Year … YAY for Katy and YAY for Connect 2 Mums. Katy and her amazing sister, Peace run Connect 2 Mums, a fabulous network of mums around Australia and New Zealand. It’s such a supportive and engaging network of women, all helping out others to be the best woman .. mum .. wife .. sister .. daughter .. friend .. business person they can be. Peace and Katy make the perfect hosts and leaders of this organisation. They are caring and compassionate and inspirational and amazing. Success to them is being the happiest person you can be, doing what you want to do in life. I get that!!
Well the night of the awards was fabulous, filled with lots of laughs, amazing food, frocks and high heels, stories of success, champagne and lost bags. Then night turned into morning when the lost bag was found and the laughs continued, the high heels were replaced with flat get about flip flaps and the dinner turned into a late buffet breakfast. The idea for this photoshoot was born. It was to be a photoshoot celebrating their success in business and success in parenting. A couple of weeks later, this was the result … two sisters, three mothers, five children, many friends, complete families, special love and amazing lives lived. Katy and Peace are amazing business women but more importantly, they’re incredible mums with the perfect amount success in their lives. Enough success to encourage and foster success in the lives of many others.
Until next time .. enjoy.
