Whenever I get the opportunity to network within my local Bakersfield community- I do! Second Saturday is such a fun way to meet other like-minded entrepreneurs (and other “momtrepreneurs” like myself). Having gone to several of these Saturday events, I have built relationships with several vendors in town such as Cafe Smitten, The Bella Rae & The Rustic Petal Trailer. I was welcomed by the manager of Cafe Smitten, to go “behind the scenes” of the local coffee shop and showcase why it’s such a popular “must try” spot in town. All the shops I have worked with have showcased my images on their social media accounts (as have I). Supporting one another in this town is so crucial and humbling. It was great for us to build such amazing friendships as well as recognizing the importance of each other’s talents so we could all come together to support each other. In this portfolio, I wanted to feature all of the images I have taken thus far from the local shops in the community. I do offer packages for larger & smaller local businesses in town. From local coffee shops or flower shops; to hair stylists, makeup artists, craftsmen, or jewelers. If you’re a local artist or entrepreneur, message me so we can talk shop, create some modern-day content & share advertising networks!
