Today I want to share about the importance of community when it comes to photographers – specifically here in Hampton Roads. Typically on Wednesday, we post a blog geared towards helping/educating/entertaining photographers, but yesterday. you may have noticed that I did not post anything. That’s because I was at the Leila Alexander Boudoir studio with a fabulous group of ladies trading headshots!

The Importance of Community

As someone who is a full time photographer who works from home, it is very easy to become chained to the computer and never get out to interact with people in the outside world. So when Leila announced that she was hosting a get together for local photographers at her studio, I knew I wanted to go! I’ll be honest, it’s literally been years since Leila and I have seen each other, so it was wonderful to get together again to catch up and see where life has taken us.


I also got to meet some new friends, eat delish tacos, share some laughs, boss people around (unintentionally – I swear!), and take some gorgeous images! I know… you’re thinking – wait, can we go back to the tacos?! 😉

To all the gorgeous gals who came out to the event, it was awesome getting to hang out with you and y’all really reinforced the importance of community in our business and in our lives! Can’t wait to do it again!
