It’s always a pleasure to spend time with Mary Anne, she has a beautiful, genuine and welcoming presence that draws you in to her calm, quiet nature. I had the pleasure of connecting with her through HATCH, (an incredible network that I feel blessed to be a part of) a curated group of real life superheroes, who support and collaborate with one another’s unique talents and passions and a shared goal of creating a better world.
I had the pleasure of capturing jump photos with these incredible humans at a Hatch reunion in San Francisco. As each person jumped we all became more energized, elevated and open. I knew that Mary Anne has a tendency to be a little shy and does not normally enjoy getting her photo taken so when she participated in the jump photos, it was even more beautiful to watch her laugh, have fun and open up to the experience. I how her photo turned out, she makes it look easy and effortless hovering peacefully in her jump… like she’s an elegant dancer in the sky.
Pure joy and so fun!
Thank you for taking the chance to play, to jump for joy and for sharing your beautiful soul Mary Anne!
