Allison - North Park
This journey of starting a photography business is not even close to what I thought it'd be like. First off, it is a lot more work than I had anticipated. It's not just taking pictures and editing. We are essentially the CEO, the social media marketer, the web designer, the accountant, and the photographer all-in-one. I've found that when just starting out, 75% is all marketing and advertising. It's about gaining that confidence to be able to sell your services and your skills. I learned so much through this and it hasn't even been a month yet! Not only am I gaining tons of experience, I am also embracing being pushed out of my comfort zone. Not many people may know this but, I am an introvert. When given a choice, I prefer spending time alone rather than socializing. But taking on this career has pushed the boundaries of my comfort zone. The people I have met, thus far, have been so kind, so easy-going, so passionate, and so creative. This creative community I have stumbled upon continues to feed my own passion. I can honestly say that I love all of it.
One of the people I am referring to is Allison, from butwhatshouldiwear (Instagram: @butwhatshouldiwear). She is one of the most genuine and inspirational bloggers I have met. Her sense of style is on point and my camera just loves her. Here are some of the pictures from the shoot. You can see all of the pictures from the shoot here. You will definitely be seeing more of her :)
