Contrary to common belief, being in a creative profession requires a lot work just like a regular 9-5 job. My days aren’t only filled with magical shoots(although I wish this was the case). I started off with a passion that led me to being a business owner and juggling all the hats in my small business.
I am a web designer, accountant, tax payer(ouch), advertiser, geek squad when technology fails me, editing queen, receptionist, writer, therapist, FRIEND, travel agent, and best of all PHOTOGRAPHER. There is no marketing team or HR department handling my contacts and legal terms. It’s ME! ✨
I’ve learned by trial and error through the years, but I’m so grateful for the clients who put their trust in me from the very beginning. Y’all made this girls dreams a reality and continue to each day! There is no other thing I’d rather be doing, and I can’t wait to make a fool of myself with lame jokes to make you laugh. ✨
As for now, I’ll be washing my eyes out every few minutes and sneezing like crazy...allergies are real here in northern CA and being in a field of pollen will not work to your advantage, but #DoItForTheGram ! I’m so glad I stepped away from my editing and work to remember why I love photography oh so much. There are so many opportunities to get outside and get inspired, and I have to constantly remind myself of exactly this. ✨
PS bikers may or may not have made fun of me asking if Coachella was here now as they rode by us and a rattlesnake may have almost been stepped on, but I’m feeling more inspired than ever, so it’s 100% worth being made fun of.✨
