I got a new camera!!
For the last few months I have been debating whether or not I should take the plunge and buy a serious business camera. The more styles I started shouting, the harder it was for me to capture the content to my best ability. I was feeling limited in my shooting capabilities but still felt the twinge every time I thought of making the purchase. I have such pride in starting my own company and I would not want to put myself in a tough situation. After talking with several friends, the consensus was unanimous. Get the camera and the business will come. Having a powerful camera would allow me to grow and attract the people who want to work with me. After weeks of anxiety, I made the leap. It was the best decision I ever made! It has inspired me and allowed me to dream big for me and my business! I feel now as though I can do anything. That my tools now match what I dream I can create! Thank you to my friends and family who supported me in taking this leap especially my parents!
This shoot is particularly special to me as it is with my good friend and absolute rock star Alyssa Gagarin. This was the first shoot I did on my new camera and it was absolutely everything I could have dreamed of! Not only is Alyssa the most fun to work with, but the colors of the food was so vibrant and beautiful! It was like I was seeing color for the first time ever!!
We laughed, we tasted, and we celebrated this new exciting milestone.
My relationship with Alyssa is very special to me because she truly is a woman who supports other women and helps raise them up. I feel so connected to this soul sister who will do anything to help another girlfriend if it's in her power! So often women create competition among each other and it just doesn't make sense to me. If we support each other we are able to do anything. Sometimes just knowing you have that support allows you to soar. Forever grateful for friends like Alyssa!
