I have always loved accents, the different sounds of the world in different people we meet.
Being from Peru Lisseth has a beautiful accent to go along with her gorgeous face and sweet personality. Seriously I could listen to her all day, no matter what she says it comes out sounding beautiful.
Both her and her mother arrived at the shoot all smiles and positive energy which is something I completely respond to and love to see in parents.
Baby boy has the same happy go lucky – easy going personality and gifted us with huge smiles, lots of delightful baby laughs and I even got some hugs ! Sadly our session was only an hour and I didnt get to spend as much time as I liked with this beautiful family. However, we got so many pictures it was hard for me to narrow it down.
Please enjoy the pictures and get to know Lisseth in her own words by scrolling down.
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR WORK ?
” I work for South West airlines. Before I got pregnant I used to travel a lot. Not so much anymore, but hopefully I’ll soon be able to with my little one. I cant wait to show him all the beautiful people and cultures.”
WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT AND DREAM ?
” When I was a little girl I used to have postcards from places all over the world on the ceiling of my bedroom so every time I went to bed I saw it right before, and I would dream about it. My dreams have come true. My passion is to go to new places, try the food, see the locals and learn about the culture. My greatest accomplishment is my son Liam. He is the greatest thing in the world.”
WHAT FEMALE INSPIRES YOU THE MOST ?
“My mom. She is strong and did a great job raising my sister and I. She was living too far away in Peru and now is here with me. She helps me a lot with my baby.”
WHAT HAS YOUR GREATEST CHALLENGE BEEN ? HOW DID YOU OVERCOME IT ?
” Living here in the USA without my family. That was really hard, but I thank God for all the incredible friends I have here. Now I am happy because I have my own family, and my parents with me now, but that was a very hard challenge. My friends and my faith in God got me through. I love my family, they are the most important thing in the world to me and we are very close.”
WHAT DO YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOU ?
” I wish people knew more about where I’m from…Peru. Its a beautiful country in Suuth America and has many things to offer, great food and good people. So if you have the opportunity to visit Peru please do so! I am also very happy to have the opportunity to live here in America and make a life here.”
WHAT KIND OF MOTHER DO YOU WANT TO BE ?
” I want to be a better person for my son and be the cheerleader of his life. I want to be an example of a beautiful woman with brains, determination and integrity. There’s no doubt I’m going to be the loudest person in the stands at his baseball games or whatever he wants to play. I want him to know I’m always there for him.”
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO THE SAME AND DIFFERENT FOR YOUR SON FROM HOW YOU WERE RAISED?
” I want to raise my son with the same values and manners I was raised with and show him whats important in life like my mother showed me. However, I want to take him on more adventures and show him more places then I was able to do with my mother when I was young. I just want him to be happy and I just ask God everyday for the strength to raise him and the wisdom to show him all that I know. ”
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO OTHER MOMMIES?
” The greatest advice I can give to other mommies is that there is no perfect way to be a mother. Each mommy has different children and different challenges, but what matters the most is the love you give to your child. Love them deeply”
WHATS YOUR STATEMENT ?

Lisseth thank you so much for being a part of this ! I know what it is like to be alone and lonely in a foreign country and your right it was my friends that got me through it.
I’m sure your words will encourage many who are missing their families right now.
I can’t wait to see you all again and hopefully we can get hubby to come next time for some family photos
Please leave Lisseth and her family your kind words below !
