Melanie Kern-Favilla is an award-winning photographer and KelbyOne instructor. You may also recognize her as the winner of the second Gallery at KelbyOne contest with her beautiful floral work. In her other life, she is a train engineer with the Long Island Railroad, wife, lover of dogs and big weather (the kind that brings tornadoes). If you’d like to see what a life of pushing past your fears looks like, look no further, this lady is the real deal. I hope you’ll take the time to watch Melanie tell her full story here, it’s exciting, inspiring, reassuring and calming all at the same time. Who wouldn’t want to watch that? 😉
What happens when your passion and determination are led by grace? Incredible, wonderful things that’s what. Sit with Tracy Sweeney and me as she talks about how she got started, her role as a mom, how she connects with the families and children she photographs, and how it all comes together to serve her purpose. The love and gratitude she has for her family shine through in every moment, as does her teaching background in the stories she captures in her work.
This Personal Side of Tracy Sweeney interview was inspiring, fascinating and joyful for me and I know it will be for you too—I hope you’ll make time to watch it.
