We have enjoyed hearing all the fantastic stories of the women who have participated in our Fabulous 40 project. This project has been so much more than just “taking pretty pictures.” Our hope for the women who participate in this project is that they genuinely reconnect with themselves, see their beauty and spirit the way others see them.
At Christine Nicole Photography, the portrait experience is a pampering, indulgent adventure, custom-tailored, and focused on YOU!
I would like now to introduce to you our next amazing woman from our Fabulous 40 project...Meet Tonya!
Tonya is a Case Coordinator for the Court System and the Guardian ad Litem Program. She was inducted as a member of the Who’s Who while attending college. She has received National Championship Awards for Speech and Debate while in college and a Toastmaster’s award for Speech.
In her current position for the Guardian ad Litem Program, she was honored as Advocate of the Year. She has won various awards over the life of her career for advocacy.
Her greatest accomplishment is developing positions that assist families, victims, children, and the Judicial system to advocate the best interest for all involved. She considers this to be her most outstanding achievement because making a difference in someone’s life is the ultimate reward. Her motto is to be positive, embrace change, be selfless, and never stop striving to be your best.
The quote that defines her is, “To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to leave the world a bit better; to know even one life has breathed easier cause you lived. This is to have success.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
The advice that she would give to her eighteen-year-old self would be that life isn’t about being your authentic self.
She wanted to be a part of the Fabulous 40 project because she wants to show women that they can be beautiful at any age, shape, or size and that it’s never too late to follow your dreams. Her favorite thing about participating in the Fabulous 40 experience was feeling sexy, beautiful, and empowered during her portrait session.
Thank you, Tonya, for choosing to be a part of the Fabulous 40 portrait experience!
