It looks like a snow storm has hit our home, but instead of actual snow it's crumpled up tissue! Yes with snot! That's what happens when all 3of us are sick at the same time! A house full of snot, chapped noses, & groggy voices! It's gives us an excuse to stay in our pj’s all day & bundle up watching Stand by me! Oh and Forest Gump!
This post is a part of the “What I learned in my first year” Series. There’s no specific order that these posts are in… I’m kinda just jumpin round to different topics! So I guess Im not that organized lol Click here if you would like to read Part 1:”The Investments”
Today we’re talking about “Getting published!” I know that I’m no pro in this topic, but I just wanted to share this experience with you & maybe one day if I can come back and retouch on this topic, if I get published more often! :) Until then Im gonna pretend like I know what Im talking about so bear with me!
So I know Im a few weeks late but i really wanted to talk about how SUPER STOKED I am that I was published on Any Given Party! This is such a huge deal for me! It means that my photos were good enough to be published (or they just really liked the party details!)
This has given me a spark of confidence to now submit more sessions... maybe some weddings & engagement sessions because that's the market that I'm trying to reach out to. But anything is good for me right now! Getting Published is an awesome opportunity to get marketed to future brides & hopefully future clients for FREE! Holla Balla! If you didn't see the featured post feel free to check it out :) Here

By the way isn’t this a beautiful day to end the world! Wish I felt better so I could get off the couch & do something awesome today! Hmm O well maybe Ill get a chance at the next “end of the world scare!”
I probably won't be back on the blog until after the Xmas chaos is ova, but u gotta admit I was on a roll this week with 3 blog posts! Woop Woop! Have a wonderful time with your loved ones and cherish these moments ya’ll have together! I know I will while I'm wrapping tamales, baking cookies with my lil munchkin, Tappin Jacks bootay in some games, & just laughing with the familia!
From your furry Lil friend, me!
I'M JANELLE MARINA
Wife, Mama Shark, + Photographer.
Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
