Vancity Business Babes Mompreneur 2016 Event

Yesterday was a loooong day. And by loooong day, I mean 17 hours long - any other entrepreneurs out there who start working at 5 am and go until 10pm?

But regardless of the length of the day, it was amazing. A lengthy day that is spent doing exactly what I love to do will leave me tired, but never drained.

I started off the morning with a maternity shoot with Ally (more to come on that later, I cannot wait to share her images with you all!). 

As with any business, there are many things that go on behind the scenes. Yesterday afternoon happened to be full of admin, bookkeeping, blogging, consultations, and other business essentials.

The day topped off with me having the privilege of photographing some seriously amazing local entrepreneurs and all around awesome women at the Vancity Business Babes Mompreneur event last night. Thank you Danielle for arranging such a beautiful event!

When I think about the 17 hour days like today; the ones that are really more common than someone might think, I am always blown away by the women who successfully run both a business and are simultaneously raising a family. With the amount of time and effort I put into my glamour and boudoir photography studio, I cannot imagine tacking on more than my husband into the mix.

If you are a mom and a business owner, you seriously need to pat yourself on the back and give yourself a round of applause. 

Kudos to each of the fantastic speakers last night, as well as to the vendors at the VCBB: Mompreneur event last night! 

To any of the vendors, sponsors or attendees who would like a copy of their image, please email me at and I will get you hooked up with it!

- XOXO, Chelsey
