thankful for our photographer, marissa easterling
Thanksgiving might be over but we are still reflecting on all the things we are grateful for.
This might sound random but we are thankful for small businesses. Small business owners are amazing! They work so hard, all because they love what they do.
Think about it…how many small businesses do you buy from or use their services? Probably a lot that you had not even thought of…a tutor or coach who gives “private” lessons. The boutique where you found your HOCO dress. The farmers market that you went to over Thanksgiving. Ok, you get the point.
Small Business Saturday was a couple of days ago and in the spirit of thanksgiving, we want to recognize one of our favorite small businesses. Marissa Easterling Photography, which is owned by…you guessed it…Marissa Easterling.
Marissa does almost all of the photography for yooou! – both for the blog and the subscription box. She adores working with teen girls and loves to bring out their natural beauty. She wants girls to love themselves and believe in themselves, as much as we do. (Check out the recognition she just got).
So we wanted to take a quick second to say, THANK YOU MARISSA!
If you ever want to work with Marissa and model for yooou!, click here and tell us. We love our “real girl” models.
Marissa is also available for everything from family holiday card photos to girls’ Senior Photos so if you want to work with her on another project, click here. Tell her we sent you (she doesn’t know we are writing this post so she might be confused or surprised at first, haha).
Also, look for a post from her at some point. We are always asking her for tips on how to take a good photograph and how to look good in a photo taken of you!
Anyway, a huge thank you to all small businesses! Without you, the world would be less colorful, less unique and certainly less passionate.
