Interview with a Photographer Mom: Tab McCausland

I met the awesome Tab McCausland, along with a wonderful group of photographer women, on a Flickr Group for Florida photographer girls which no longer exists. Tab is downright funny, amazingly talented, and filled with energy and ideas. I love that she seems to live life to the fullest and enjoys everything to the max. She is one of those people that truly experiences everything and it makes her a better person and photographer. She shoots a lot for herself, which is something that I have not done for myself enough. Tab rocks!!
