    I had to leave the Build and Bloom group, there are many talented photographers in the group, but it made me feel my work wasn't good enough and I want grow and get inspired from the world around me, not other photographers.

    Love you Jessica!! Need to brainstorm mine! Los Angeles and Orange County Blogger and Mom?? I feel like I can’t pick between LA and OC bc so many brands think I’m in LA (and it’s an hour away) but then I am local to OC. Ah!

  20. Kyle ChenNovember 13, 2018

    Super helpful! What do you do when it doesn't fit within the 30 character limit? Some of the names look to be longer than that – is there a trick?

  21. Teddy HendersonNovember 13, 2018

    I live in a suburb of San Antonio. Would you recommend putting "San Antonio Photographer" as my name, or where I am actually based. I've done work in both cities.

  22. Kayla VNovember 17, 2018
