Nervous, excited, sweaty palms, palpitating heart, butterflies in my stomach!….does this mean I’m in love? You betcha! In love with life and excited to be going on another adventure with Crystal! When she offered me the position, it was impossible not to accept. Crystal always had a way of convincing me to do the most non-sensible things…like moving across the country with her or becoming an officiant to marry her and Ben!
Q: Tola, congratulations on “joining the family.” Given the common pressures of today’s society (high unemployment, impolite discourse among political leaders, a lack of good Pho options in many major cities), how do you stay consistently awesome? – Ryan B.
A: Thank you, Ryan! I must admit, sometimes its tough staying so awesome. 😉 It helps that I have amazing friends! But here are the essentials: always keep some type of hot sauce around, like Sriracha, since some spice makes any food oh so nice! Escape to the woods/ocean as much as you can. You can never get enough of nature. And, most importantly, eat lots of fruit! I personally like mango and banana smoothies or eating a regrettable amount of Lychee.
Q: Tola, what are you excited for most, now that you joined ranks with CGP?
A: Hmm….I think I know who asked this question ;). I am most excited to be doing what I always loved to do. Taking photographs! I am excited to be working with a friend who has an amazing talent and I look forward to us learning from each other. And of course, I am super excited to meet our clients, to document and share their life stories through our lens!
I’m looking forward to meeting this year’s clients as I help Crystal shoot on both coasts! (Its a good thing that I love to travel :))
