Philadelphia, PA...July 15th, 2016.

Hello Brooke and Barbie (and whoever else reading this).

So, good news! I finally bought a computer, so now I will be able to post, retouch, upload images etc...much more frequently.  

Bruce, from the Apple Store, took one look at my facial expression and gave me the student discount (I will forever be thankful Bruce)! Bruce is also a photographer and understood the equipment struggle. "Us photographers need to stick together" he said with a wink as he handed me my computer. 

Anyhow, the last time I posted, I was still a Hallmark student, but guess what! I am officially a Hallmark Graduate. It is both exciting, yet terrifying. I love the idea that I can spend every day creating images, meeting new people and collaborating with others. 

The day after I graduated, I packed up my KIA SOUL and drove down to Philadelphia! I AM OFFICIALLY A PHILLY GIRL and let me tell you, it feels awesome. I have two amazing roommates and an incredible support system here. 

Today, July 15, 2016, is not only my niece, Ayelet's, third birthday, but it was also my first real session as a professional/non-student photographer. Luckily, it was with the awesome Sharon Goldberg. We drove to Stone Harbor, NJ, a cute little beach town on the Jersey Shore and took some interiors of a house she decorated. The house was stunning and the session went really well! Cannot wait to show all of you the photos!

This might sound kinda-sappy, but it makes me insanely happy that I get to wake up every day and be a photographer.

Wish me luck!

Let me know if you need any photos! I DO IT ALL!

Until next time.

All my best, 

Yael Pachino
