NatVon Photography 10 Year Anniversary

2019 marks the 10-year anniversary of NatVon Photography!! The time has flown by! Ever since I was little I always loved doing all types of art; pottery, painting, drawing, and more. It wasn’t until I got my first camera when I was 17 that I discovered that photography was the perfect medium for me to express my artistic side. By the time I was a senior in high school, I had created NatVon Photography and started out shooting with high school friends and models from Freshman year of college I majored in photography at San Jose State University, however the program didn’t seem fitting for me and I switched to a community college after the first semester. I was persuaded by my family to major in something else that would be a more “stable job”, and I decided to pursue my other passion of environmental preservation. I transferred to Humboldt State University and graduated in 2014 with a bachelors degree in Environmental Management and Protection.
The first two environmental jobs I had out of college made me completely miserable and I realized that the corporate world is not for me. In August 2018 I quit my job to pursue my photography business full-time and have been hustling hard ever since! To be honest, starting and running a business is turning out to be much harder than I expected, plus I found out I was pregnant a couple months after quitting my job, which added difficulties to the business process.
So here I am 10 years later. I work hard to progress every single day. My business is not where I want it to be, but I am getting there. I have a lot of faith in the universe that everything will work out, but I’ve learned that it takes a lot more than faith and hope to get where you want. Goal setting, taking action, and making genuine connections are essential!
My heart's truest desire is to have my photography business bring me creative fulfillment and financial abundance by inspiring, uplifting, and empowering others. I value the freedom of being an entrepreneur and the ability to create my own schedule. This is a challenging journey, but I am willing to do whatever it takes to make it to the top!!
