Journal: Dinner with a Stranger


If you know me in real life, you’ll know I can be a little shy and am fairly introverted. I don’t really know what made me do it, but at the end of June I made an impulsive decision to put a request on an online platform called Honeybook looking for a “photography mentor.“ Someone who is not only willing to take me under their wing to help me navigate the business end of owning a photography business, but someone who was also willing to take me on as an assistant and expand my skill set.

I’ve always heard about the power of “positive manifestation,” but was somehow still surprised I got a response! I got one reply from a bubbly woman named, Natalie of Natalie Moore Photography.

So, a few weeks ago after a photography session fell through, we ended up meeting up in Aurora, CO at a place called Bar Louie. We chatted all things photography over appetizers. After meeting her, I believe that I’ll learn a lot from her.

The point I’m trying to make of this short blog post is this: Sometimes doing something out of the norm and being willing to seek discomfort is important. It not only opens you to new opportunities and new friends.
