Tracy’s Day With Drew

A few weeks ago I spent the day with new Orange County photography Tracy Laulhere (website coming soon!).  She’s a Stanford educated mom of 2 who’s decided to turn her love of photography into a business.  It’s a good thing I didn’t know she was a Stanford grad until we had already started our session because I would have been intimidated!  Tracy has done her research in photography.  She’s bought all the right equipment.  Gone to seminars with the best photographers in Orange County.  And has perfected her logo and is working on perfecting her website and blog.  She’s getting everything lined up perfectly before starting her business.

But, my question to her was, is it ever going to be perfect?  My advice to Tracy was to listen to her heart and dive in.  Let her emotions drive her instead of her brain and see where it takes you.  A lot of photography is emotional.  The way you connect with your clients.  The way you depict the love you see through your lens.  You can’t (or at least I can’t) rationalize everything that I do with photography.  Sometimes you have to just go with it and let your heart lead the way.

I am very excited to see Tracy’s website and blog!  I know she will put out nothing but an amazing product!

The awesome Enoch family modeled for us.  I love how bright and colorful their outfits were!  They totally matched their outgoing and fun personalities.  Had so much fun with this family!

Krista’s Day With Drew

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of spending the day with Orange County photographer Krista Secoda of K Sue Photography. Krista is the Mom of two young girls and is also currently a teacher. She’s decided to take a big step and take next year off from teaching and pursue her passion for photography! I think anyone can start a photography business. But, to be successful you have to have an eye for photography and be driven. Krista has both so I know she is going to do great!

The super cute and fun Cisneroz family modeled for us. They are on a very exciting adventure to Africa this summer to adopt two kids from Ethiopia!  This session was to capture their family as a family of 4 before they grow to a family of 6! I’m really excited for them!
