The other day I had the honor of shooting the grand opening for one of my favorite stores– The Lucky Knot!! I have been in love with this store ever since I started following them on Instagram a few years ago, and when I found out they were coming to Annapolis I couldn’t have been more excited!! A few people have asked how I got the chance to shoot something like this. My answer is that I had courage. When I saw their Instagram post on opening a store in Annapolis, I knew I wanted to be there for it. I was hesitant at first, but eventually I commented on their post and said something along the lines of “I really love your store, if you want someone to shoot your grand opening I would be honored to be there!” And that was that. All it took was a bit of courage. There have been many times in my life where I really wanted to shoot something or do something or hangout with someone, but I was so scared to say anything. But I’ve learned that so much good can come from speaking up and getting your voice heard. All it takes is an email to your favorite photographer asking to grab coffee with them, or commenting on an Instagram post of one of your favorite local stores asking if theres anything you can do to support their business. Have courage to go after what you want, and turn your dreams into plans!
If you’re ever in downtown Annapolis, be sure to check out this little preppy shop on Main Street!
