Real AF, not in just a trendy way either
I finished all of these within days, yes they were that good.
Alora has a way of speaking to the listener like she's a childhood friend. Instead of seeming like this random person in their own world, that doesn't really understand or know or care what you're going through, it seems like she's on the other side of your couch speaking straight to your heart (the title rings true).
I've listened to a bunch of other photography podcasts, but this one touches on the real life stuff you're living, not just upping your followers/etc.
She's truly amazing &I can't wait to hear more from her! (& figure out what number I am lol)
You know when you have good heart felt transparent conversation over coffee with a friend? Aloras podcasts leave you feeling just like that, her transparency and encouragement leaves you feeling empowered to reach out and follow your dreams!
Permission to succeed.
I stumbled across Alora and her company via IG as we have several mutual friends & connections. While I initially started following her for style/inspiration (FYI - her work is fab), I quickly recognized the spirit of how she cares for herself, her family and her business. The girl is just plain real. I personally need this type of voice in my life as I try to “make it” in this ever-so-abusive industry of Wedding Photography. These podcasts alone have changed the way I view my work. I’m still a “new” photographer and I have experienced the lessons, failures, struggles and insecurities that come with that. I’ve also learned that comparison kills contentment - I need not jump on the bandwagon of what someone else is doing or think that I should be where they are simple because we share the same age. I’ve learned to be MY best, not someone else’s. While I’m not where I want to be (knowledge of equipment, posing, editing, business, social media presence, etc!), I am ahead of where I once was. For me, I must choose to take that as a personal win. Alora, without even knowing it, or knowing me, you’ve held my hand through a lot. Because of your spirit that you willing share with the world, I’m inspired and motivated to be my best yet - and for once in my life, I believe that I can reach my goals. Please don’t stop inspiring, loving, teaching & training - too many of us need you!
