I am Joana Strauss, a freelance photographer and a mother of a wonderful child. I have always loved taking pictures of beautiful moments and scenery. Being a freelance photographer and a mother made me more responsible. Some says having your own job and being a freelancer is much easier because I have my own time and my own conditions. It is great but I do not agree that it’s easy, well, there’s really no easy job after all. As a freelancer I have to do everything on my own, from advertising, scheduling appointments, managing the equipment, keeping records, and paying the bills, plus, I also have my responsibilities for my child. It might be really stressing as you read it, but all of these will get better in time.
Experiencing all of these responsibilities inspired me to create this website and create blogs that might actually help other moms and photographers when it comes to photography tips, career enhancement and managing time and finances. There’s really no easy job but if it’s your passion and you have the inspiration you will have the power to overcome whatever struggle that might come your way.
