writing in the margins

What are you afraid of? By nature, I’m a scaredy-cat. I don’t watch horror or suspense movies because I will have nightmares for weeks. The two times I tried to be cool at sleepovers and watch the scary movies with friends I traumatized myself. I’m terrified of clowns as a result of trying to be […]

Can I ask you a question? When you think of the word professional, what comes to mind? Is it a suitcase caring, suit-wearing, office in a cooperate office type of individual? I’ve been seriously contemplating this question because when do we, small business owners, scrappy, creative, innovative individuals know when we reached professionalism? I know […]

Can I be honest with you? I’m exhausted from posting on social. Don’t get me wrong, I love engaging with people, and Motivation Mondays are a lot of fun, but creating content is a full-time job… scratch that, it’s more than a full-time job. I’m always jotting down ideas. Drafting scripts or outlines and then […]

The phrase has been thrown around a lot. What exactly is imposter syndrome? Google defines it as “a collection of feelings of inadequacy that persist despite evident success.” This bad boy robs you of joy.

Like a rocket ship launch that propels astronauts in motion to fly into space, a business launch sets a plan in motion to promote a new product or service for a business. I’ve been officially a full-time photographer for a year, and I’ve […]

Today is my 9-year wedding anniversary. I remember being in the earlier stages of my relationship with Stephon and wishing it was 9 months instead of 9 weeks or 9 days. I have a habit of always planning the future. This habit, although constructive, can sometimes prevent you from completely submersing yourself in the joy […]

Guys, I’ve been so busy with life and business that it totally escaped me. August 4, 2020, I signed papers to make Pereyra Photos an official recognized local business! Today is August 6, 2021 and I just want to take a moment to reflect all that happened in 1 year of entrepreneurship. Pereyra Photos launched […]

I’m excited to inform you that Pereyra Photos will be hosting our very first Head Shot Pop Up. Headshots are expensive and I know that when you are first starting out you are counting all your pennies and thinking thoroughly before you invest. So pumped for this headshot pop-up, not only because I’ll be hanging […]
