March is international #WomanHistoryMonth.
Every now and then, I still find hard to believe the outstanding news my friend @maude_m_rivier woke me up to on the 23rd morning of this month.
That day, my grand'Ma Jacqueline and my twin sister Lisa were chosen by @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas), to be featured into a series of 31 photos celebrating womanhood throughout the world.
Very few words can quite discribe the pride we all three felt...and to be featured amongst such talented women photographers is a honor that i will cherish for a lifetime.
Thank you @natgeoyourshot @kemcnicholas for highlighting emerging photographers!

#YourShotPhotographer Chloé Serignac captured a timeless, tender moment between her twin sister and grandmother. This image resonated with me personally because my grandmother was my first best friend, and I was her namesake. Photography has the ability to freeze moments, and people, in time. I’m so thankful for the images that I have of my own grandmother because she taught me how to stand my ground, how to laugh until I cry and when I was a kid and had no idea how much I would love photography, she let me take her picture. Women’s History Month isn’t just about remembering and celebrating the women in our own lives, but we simply wouldn’t be who we are without them. That’s something worth celebrating.
The images I chose to feature this month celebrate female-identifying Your Shot photographers telling a visual story of empowerment, the freedom and flexibility of womanhood, photographers and their images #BreakingBarriers whether it’s identifying women’s issues in their images or a beautiful landscape or underwater image. — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)
