So many of the folks we work with have multidimensional stories. They often aren’t just working on a single project, business or mission – instead they are often involved in so many things all at once and so we often wonder about what they themselves hope their legacy will be about. We’ve shared some of their responses with you below.

Alix Seracki | Photographer & Artist

I’ve been thinking about this a lot. Photography is what I’m most passionate about, it trickles into almost every facet of my life. I’m proud of what I’ve been able to accomplish and since I picked up a camera, it has been the biggest part of my identity. I have always had the thought that I want to be remembered, but specifically, for what? People who know me would laugh but I always have considered myself a wallflower, especially in group settings. I get along with almost everyone and if that was it, if I was remembered as the nice girl, I would 100% be okay with that. But I think what I’ve come to realize, what I love so much about what I do and why it’s become such a part of me, is I really have the power to make people feel good about themselves. It makes me feel confident that I am doing something with what talent I have. I don’t want my legacy to be just about my career, many have accomplished much more professionally at this age.

Legacy is a small word with such a huge meaning behind it. I want people to remember how my work made them feel both in the moment and when they got to see their portraits. I want to be remembered as someone who no matter how many times I failed, no matter how hard life got or how much loss i encountered I still pushed on. not just for myself but also for my number one supporter, my husband, my miracle girls, my clients past, present and future and all those who see work I got to create now and for future generations.

Denise Foley | Founder & Creator

My family is from Brazil & Peru and I grew up with my mother always telling me to love my body. I was raised in a small town in Oregon and my body matured much more earlier than any of my friends, this left me feeling self conscious and embarrassed of how I looked, so I think the root of the motto for Sunset Vibes #lovewhatyougot comes from that experience and all the times my mom would remind me to love myself. As a child, my father took me traveling to see the world and understand first hand that no matter where I came from or what experiences I had earned or been given I was no better than anyone else and that we are all connected. One of my favorite trips was going to the Amazon Rainforest where I saw colors more vivid than I could have ever imagined and saw so many different species ranging from pink dolphins to anteaters.

My mission in life is to inspire and edify the spirit of humanity through art. I hope to be remembered for generations to come for leaving a legacy of this mission. Creating monumental sculpture installations across the country, I hope, will continue to be relevant and inspiring. Read more>>
