Never underestimate a woman!
Meet Athena. She works as a trainer for Miller Electric Manufacturing Company.
When Athena contacted us about photographing her for MissManual‘s podcast showcasing females in male industries, I KNEW this would be a blast. I didn’t realize just how awesome it would be.
I am seriously so in shock that this is my job, and I literally get to make a living making art and capturing people like this, and that brings me to tears on a regular basis.
A: Because I’m a baby and I’m just so grateful…
B: Because it’s pretty freaking incredible and I can’t believe it sometimes!
Not only is Athena absolutely beautiful, but she’s got the sweetest personality and is so fun to be around. She’s intelligent and talented and killing it in her field. Ever met a female welder? Neither had I, but she’s a BOSS, and it was truly our pleasure to spend the day with her learning a little about what she does. Never underestimate a powerful woman!
And I’ve got to take a moment and brag on my girl Candace Martin(Candace Martin Beauty). Athena is already gorgeous on her own. This Atlanta location was already dope on its own. But Candace absolutely killed the hair and makeup part of this shoot, and she took it from awesome to phenomenal with her vision. This woman is so full of love for her craft, so insanely talented, and always has the most insane vision for each job we do. Not only does she have the best ideas, but she executes them so beautifully. I am so honored to be able to work with this talented woman, and even more honored to be able to call her my friend.
Shoutout to all the BOSS BABES in every industry! The women killing it, the women supporting other women, the women running their own businesses, those excelling in their fields, teaching and mentoring others. YOU ARE AWESOME.
