An Inspirational Note From "Image Photography" by Laurie

"Dear Readers,

I am writing to you all to give you a little bit about me, Laurie, and why I started Image Photography . I am an art major with a knack for drawing. I have always liked doing pictures because it's like telling a story without words. I think my favorite thing about the photo industry is that there's always something new to look forward to there's always something new you can try. It lets me explore my artistic side.

My goal is to be able to travel more and worry less. I want to focus more on maternity and newborn shoots. Because I'm a mother of 4 kids and a grandmother of 2 boys, I have a deep empathy for and interest in mothers and their babies. I donate my time to those who have lost a child or mothered a premie. I shoot them free of charge. I ,myself, lost two babies to SIDS and can understand their pain.
This served as more inspiration for me shooting babies in the NICU was the fact that I lost my own children .

On the side,I do a bartending and waitressing in addition to my freelancing with visual designing and photography. While raising 3 teen daughters and one son, I started my business about 5 years ago and I never looked back! I remeber those day of trying to get good photos of my kids and the heck that i had to endure! How happy I am to look forward to many more experiences and memories doing what I love. My heart goes out to all of the mothers around the world and their families <3

About Me

  Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! I'm Calynn, 18x Award Winning businesswoman, media personality and former pageant queen (Miss United States Universe Tourism 2021, Miss World America Nation 2020). I started this blog when I was barely 15 years old in January 2011 as a supplement to my application to the retail business internship at the downtown Chicago Nordstrom mall! I stayed there for 3 years learning the fundamentals of everything fashion business from sales and marketing to media and modeling. This was a phenomenal foundation to my career as it gave me the rudimentary knowledge and competitive edge that I needed to be successful!  From there, I went on to college and obtained my first degree in Business and Humanities (the arts and social sciences). I wrote as a freelance journalist and editor for several large publications and hosted live cable television for two years. I walked countless red carpets being a VIP media guest at major industry events all over the country

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

Hey Guys! Thanks for checking in! I hope you've been well :) Do I have quite the update for you all! I know, I know. My failure to regularly post on my old faithful blog has gotten out of control. I used to post at least monthly, however, for the past couple of years I can only find the time to write you all two or three times a year. I want to thank you all for the continued support and readership from the bottom of my heart. Even reviewing my blog stats to see that this blog still receives 50-70K+ reads a year, even with my minimal posting makes me so happy. This post will discuss various events, endeavors and adventures that I've been getting into for the last several months so stay tuned to peep my highlights.
