I am so lucky to have really good friends. Friends who feel like family. Business besties who are my cheerleaders. Clients who stay connected with me even after the job is done. I am proud of the network of women that I have found and become a part of here in NJ :) So when my dear friends Priya of Privee by Priya and Mona asked to host a private ladies night soiree to celebrate my book, of course this party girl said Y E S!
It was a beautiful night! Completely surreal to be the honoree of the evening and speak about my journey in writing this book. And never easy to have all eyes on you, but I felt loved, appreciated and supported.
The scariest part was sharing the ACTUAL book. Seeing and watching everyone open it up, look through the pages and read it. Will they like it? Will they get it? Will they find value in the content? Will they buy it? It's hard to write, create and publish a book but even harder to send it out in the world with hopes that it is accepted and loved.
But that is all part of the creative journey! And I do believe this book can help so many entrepreneurs and businesses who are considering photography to help build their brands. It is loaded with information from strategy, creative direction, logistics, styling, tips, tools and pages of inspiring images! All real women with real businesses. And the design and look of the book still blows me away every time I open it up. Here is a sneak peek of a few chapters:
My official book launch party is set for September 15 at 12-2:30 at Dressed by Lori in Millburn, NJ.
