One day, at the end of summer, I strolled through those ridiculous toy aisles that are in Barnes and Noble, ( I, obviously, love toys, but don’t like them being placed right before the kid is supposed to look at books, i think it’s a deterrent, I know mine are always like, “when can we go look at those toys?” But, I digress. So, there I am, with one of my boys, and I find @mudpuppykids
spread through out the shelves. And I started to cry. Because all three of those brands had sent me care packages in the mail in exchange of photos. Little ol’ me? A plain freckled girl with glasses, who takes pictures of her kids with her phone, someone would think I could take a nice picture for them and their product??? Guys, I’m not kidding, I say this so humbly - I’m in awe that I’ve been sent things this year. It’s an absolute gift and blessing to my family. That being said, when you see a picture that is showcasing an ad or a product, I get it that not everyone likes to see that, as the likes do go way down, but if you look at it like you’re congratulating me (or any influencer for that matter) on getting a new job - that would mean so much. Because that’s really all it is, showing our latest photography gig. And I’m so proud of those “gigs”. And I promise to only ever talk about what we genuinely love and is an actual part of our life.
