It's been a while! No seriously, it's been over a year since our last blog post haha. Mainly because we really try hard to focus on the important things in life. Right now, that's our ever growing family of 2 boys and 2 cats. But I'll save the time-management topic for another post; this is about Nikki's styled shoot!
Nikki Avramovich is a super warm soul that reached out to me a couple times for one-on-one mentoring. She clearly has the photography bug and wants to quickly make it her full time job. Don't we all? Two things I always say to anyone wanting to do this full time are - you need drive and you need passion! You are guaranteed to fail without those two things.
Hustle hustle hustle, non-stop, and you will eventually succeed.
Since our first session, she has seriously impressed me with her hustle. I think she has more gigs booked this year than I did in my first 2-3 years! And last weekend, we went to her first styled shoot at Lake Affect Studios in Cleveland... I haven't even organized a styled shoot yet! Student becoming the master anyone?? Organizing anything like this takes serious work - there are vendors, models, stylists, other photographers, etc etc to manage and organize. It's also not cheap (you do have to pay some of these people). I took Nina with me, and we both had an amazing time.

Nina seriously impressed me with her photography at the shoot. I can't wait to see where she takes it this year.
I'm sure she'll be writing a post about it soon :-)
