Stephanie Tait is a mother of two, currently living in Salem, Oregon. She walked away from a successful portrait photography business to launch her personal brand, for which she is now a full time blogger, author, and speaker, sharing her unique style of whimsical photojournalism paired with her humorous and heartfelt musings on life. You can find her at The Joy Parade.
In today’s episode Stephanie shares why she left her photography business + why her family left the hustle of the Silicon Valley for a more slow paced life in Oregon. She shares about her son, Aidan and his journey through life while being on the autism spectrum. She shares how Aidan’s positive outlook on life inspires her daily.
Stephanie talks about how her definition of success shifted when she stopped worrying about how the much was coming in and instead shifted her focus on what she was putting back out into the world. She also shares the meaning behind her tattoo, “immeasurably more” and how the phrase has become a family motto.
We talk a lot about how the journey isn’t linear and often times things don’t make sense in the moment, but everything is building block for the future.
“Your stories, that’s the most powerful assets we have. That’s the way we’re impacting people.”
