I forget how lucky I am to be a member of Vend Raleigh, the Triangle’s top business organization. It’s comprised of moms who own businesses, online shop keepers, consultants, and more. You can learn more about Vend Raleigh and the business directory here. The women I’ve met as part of this unique organization have helped me grow confident in my business and achieve a more streamlined work/life business. (I’ve blogged for Vend Raleigh about what to wear at your photo session and it’s one of my favorite posts. My workspace was also featured recently!)

Last month, I attended a “photo walk” or in other words “a reason to grab dinner and a glass of wine via cameras”. I strapped my youngest in a carrier and headed down to Apex for a little workout with my Lensbaby Composer Pro, my creative lens. After wandering around with my fellow photographers in here Raleigh, we all enjoyed a great meal together. My favorite bit? One of Cary’s hushpuppy shrimp. Bravo to The Peak City Grill for some delicious food! Here are a few of my favorite photos!

P.S. If you are interested in checking out Vend Raleigh’s annual conference, head over here. I won’t be guest speaking this year but I hope to see you there!
