Balboa Island Photo Session

Our memories are made of experiences.  Every time we partake in an activity together as a family, all the happenings are locked into our minds.  We re-live them through stories and of course, photos.  This is why I love the idea of families ‘doing things’ together.  Recently, I did a photo session where we brought ice cream, cones and a scoop to the beach.  For this session, we just walked up and down Main Street in Balboa and simply had fun eating.  Of course it’s not the perfectly posed family portrait, but it’s real life.  A little messy and perfectly imperfect.

Investing // Newport Beach Family Photographer

I was thinking the other day about how important it is to believe in people and invest in them.  Years ago, someone believed in me and bought me a sewing machine.  At the time, I was making little girls dresses out of vintage linens and selling them online.  I was getting by on an old junker of a sewing machine when someone from church told me they loved what I was doing and wanted to gift me a sewing machine that would make my job much easier.

Fast forward a few years and I had saved enough money to quit sewing and buy a professional camera, lenses, a Mac and everything else I needed to start this photography business.  I feel like it was that initial investment that got my foot in the door.  I learned how to run a business through those initial years.

Look around you and encourage those hard-workers in your life.  Whether it’s an uplifting text, watching their kids for the afternoon or spending cash on them…believe in them.  I’m so thankful someone believed in me.
