I used to be a high school teacher and I always told my students that it was extremely important to network. Even as a high school student you never know where opportunities may come from, so it’s important to always be kind, do your best, and have an open heart to what ever comes your way.
For me, networking is how I connect with my clients. I don’t advertise too much but most of my clients are friends and referrals, or people I connect with personally. I always love when a client mentions how they found me! So thank you Traci, an old Academy of Art coworker, who connected me with her sister in law Heidi and Cari Slings.
Even though Sarah, the founder of Cari Slings is in North Carolina, and I am in California, working together was seamless. Those of you who are familiar with the sling company knows that it is inspired by literature, and this particular wrap (to be released soon) was inspired by LeVar Burton and The Reading Rainbow, a popular PBS show I grew up on.
Heidi and I wanted to incorporate Sarah’s literary inspiration along with Heidi’s love for knowledge and decided to shoot at her alma mater UC Davis. Aurora and Heidi looked beautiful, and Sarah’s sling popped in the sun and was very cozy for sweet Aurora!
This was such a fun shoot to be a part of and I cannot wait to see more wonderful families embrace this stunning sling to keep their children close. Stay tuned to the website for the release of this model!
