Working Mama Spotlight on Rebecca Welch
Where are you from: Virginia
Where do you live now: Indianapolis
Career: I work at a local university and I also run my photography business, Rebecca Welch Photography.
Family life: Married to my awesome husband for 14 years. We have 4 kids ages 13, 11, 7, and 5.
Favorite Indy Eats: We eat at a lot of places where kids eat from, but one of my favorites is Los Rancheros or any Mexican place.
Favorite "me-time" activity: Girls night out or relaxing and watching a movie with my husband after the kids go to bed.
What are you reading right now? I read a lot of photography stuff. There is always something new to learn!
Best Mom Moment: The birth of my 4 babies, the hugs, and the "I love yous."
Career Highlight(s): I was recently nominated as one of the top photographers in the Fishers and Noblesville area by Hulafrog. That was such a surprise and honor!!!
What you love about being a Hoosier? I grew up in Virginia and went to college in Florida and lived there for a few year afterwards. I really miss Florida and living near the beach. You can ask my husband, I would never admit to being a Hoosier, but I guess I am. I've lived here for 16 years now.
As a child, what did you want to be when you grow up? An art teacher or graphic designer
Where you want to be in 10 years? I will probably be doing a lot of the same things. I would love to grow my photography business some more. My youngest will be 15 in 10 years so we'll probably still be a busy family. In 20 years, I would like to be living near a beach and have some grandkids to spoil.
My biggest mistake: Always do what is best for you and/or your family. God first, and then family. Everything else will fall into place.
Career/Parenting advice you would like to share with other working mamas: Everyone always asks me how I do it (working full time, photography business, husband, and 4 kids). I don't really know. I do know that it takes organization, patience, wonderful support of family and friends, and lack of sleep. I am tired...very tired, but it is worth it.
