Use Your Resources

Awhile ago I highlighted one of my very good friends Niya and her business Candy Cake Co. Since that post, Candy Cake Company has grown by leaps and bounds. Niya has been relentless in building her clientele and she is certainly beginning to reap the rewards of her hard work. Last week was epic for her business and she has some faaaaabulous things in the works. One of which required some professional photos of her treats…on very short notice and even shorter dollars.

Fret not. This circle of besties make it happen. I mentioned a few posts back that my dad sent me his old camera, so Niya, my other bestie Erika over at Blulabel Bungalow and I went to work…okay, I kind of stood around and ate cake pops but whose counting. We, make that Erika and her keen eye for detail and decor took the camera and got some really awesome shots. Once the work was done we played around and shot a few fun pics of Addison and us. We worked it out, and had fun at the same time. For real, it is absolutely necessary to fake it till you make it..sometimes.

  1. These shots are absolutely FANTASTIC! I’m so proud of you guys and love that you made away! Keep up the great work.

  2. I love anytime that people can save some bucks by doing stuff themselves. Hiring a photographer would have been hella expensive. But you ladies did a great job.

  3. The pics look awesome! Addison is too cute!

    I use my resources all the time. Whenever someone needs their hair styled or braided for free(family only) or on a budget. Or whenever someone needs something drawn I’m the girl they call.
