We had the good fortune of connecting with Alejandra Perez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Alejandra, what habits do you feel helped you succeed?
Staying on top of my emails, messages and calls. Also always being available to clients.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’m most proud of pushing forward and opening my studio doors in the city I grew up in. The citrus capital of the world. Santa Paula, Ca. I am here today because I learned to take a leap and do something I love. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be to open up my storefront but it definitely had its challenges wondering if I’ll have enough clients to sustain and keep my doors open. I would just like the world to know. To trust the professional when it comes to your newborn baby and don’t try unsafe poses at home.

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
I would have to say to have some tacos de birria from the lunch trucks. Stay at the glen tavern in. And enjoy some time at the beach.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would love to thank my parents & brother for always pushing me to make something out of the many skills I present.
