Lisa makes 40 look good! She actually did her beautiful session with Misha Media on her actual birthday. Her session was her gift to herself.  What a perfect way to start the celebration!  :)

Lisa, lives a very busy life as most women do. She is the eldest of 2 daughters to her parents. Lisa has been married for over 14 years to her high school sweetheart, Eric. They have been together for a total of almost 23 years. Lisa is also a mother of two.  She has an 8 year old son, Logan and a 6 year old daughter, Samantha.   Her kids definitely keep her busy and on her toes at all times. From taking them to school, to coordinating all of their activities; to golf, dance, piano, and many more, every minute of her day is jam packed! Lisa and her family also loves to travel.   It’s important to show their kids the world. Lisa also has a full time career as a hospital liaison.  She’s a hard worker and is very successful at what she does. She loves her job and looks forward to continued success.

Last summer of 2013, Lisa was very mindful of her upcoming birthdays, so much so that she was determined to try to turn back the hands of time. She woke up one day in June 2013 and put on her running shoes. From that day on she ran everyday, striving for more and more miles. Although she does not run marathons, she runs to keep fit and feel good. Currently she runs 3-5 times a week. Even though she couldn’t stop from turning 40 :), Lisa feels even better at 40 than she did when she was 20 years old.

After having kids after 30, there were many times Lisa did not feel good, let alone beautiful, but with her perfectionist self, she worked to love herself in her own skin. Now at the age of 40, she feels more confident and has a better self awareness to live the next 40 years in nothing but greatness!
