Does the term influencer make you cringe?
It makes me cringe too, until I remember that I sometimes fall under that category.

It's hard to pass up an opportunity to make a little bit of money doing something I enjoy--creating content. I'll admit I don't make a lot of money with most opportunities, but I do have a lot of fun writing posts and taking pictures for some companies. I started taking advantage of these opportunities when I was pregnant because I didn't have a traditional 9-5 job and was expecting my first child, so every penny helped!

I am now making less money because I am more selective about the products/companies I work with. However, when I do get a chance to work on a new campaign, Luna is always involved in some way. She is usually the one that dictates where, what, when and how we shoot. If she is not in a good mood, we are not shooting at all and have to reschedule.

This particular outfit we shot in an alley where Luna had a lot of space to safely roam around in her walker. I was shooting (I am including affiliate links in which I will receive a small commission at no cost to you if you use my link to purchase) these comfortable and stylish Dr. Scholls sneakers that I ended up falling in love with. The sneakers are made of recycled water bottles and I can wear them all day long. If you are planning on purchasing these, keep in mind they run 1/2 size big, so make sure to size down! They come in 3 different colors: black, portrait (beige) and the color I am wearing is hydrangea which is a mauve pink. I paired my comfy sneakers with some faded black jeans, a lace top, and a cozy oversized cardigan for a transitional fall look.

It's kind of nice having an infant dictate when and how you get to work. My husband and I have to thank our stroller, baby carrier, walker and last, but not least, Baby Shark for allowing us to take some decent pictures. It's not ideal to have a photoshoot while taking care of a baby, but sometimes it means you get some really interesting pictures. With that said, I have also included some photos of Luna working her magic behind the scenes. Enjoy!

You can never go wrong with some wind action.

Sometimes Luna loses a shoe in the middle of a photoshoot.

Sometimes Luna handles serious diaper business...right behind me.

Sometimes instead of smiling, Luna cries.

Sometimes Luna thinks being an influencer is dumb (she might be right).

Sometimes Luna decides she wants to learn the alphabet during a photoshoot.

Sometimes Luna helps adjust a product to get the perfect picture.

and sometimes she just doesn't give a **** about campaign pictures.

Thank you so much for stopping by! 

Much Love,
Perla Giselle

  5. Hey! I really like your blog. Beautiful photos! New follower ♡


  6. How cute is Luna scootin' around while you shoot?!

    I love your look AND your POV on influencing. I'm the same way: I don't love that term and I also feel like there is more to it than just influencing an audience. It's creating, it's story-telling, it's expression- it's not just selling.

  8. Sometimes I forget I fall under the category influencer too! I'm glad you shed light on the term. I'm grateful for the opportunities to review for amazing brands and their products. You and Luna look like you're both having fun in your pictures!

  9. Love all these pics with Luna! That lace top is fabulous.


  10. That's so awesome you guys get to do this as a family affair:) And can't believe how much Luna has grown. I know I've said this before, but you two really do look adorbs:D

  11. I don´t love the term Influencer, but in the end I think it is what you make of it. It isn´t my main source of income though, so I don´t think of myself as one.

  12. Beautiful sneakers, they look very comfortable. But it is very hard look at them when your baby is so cute and sweet.

  13. wow really cute pics!


  14. I personally don't like to call myself an influencer, although I do believe that I influence women in one way or another. I have enjoyed your campaigns with Luna. She is a natural.

  15. So cute seeing your daughter photoboming your pics! :)

    I took all my photos at home with a tripod when my kids were younger so I could keep an eye on them, haha! I can't imaging juggling a camera and a baby and a walker wow!

    Now my boys are a bit bigger I might ask my 5 year old to take a pic when we are out, but mostly i stick with my tripod photos at home - our new place has the biggest windows so wherever I stand in the yard I can keep an eye on them inside, haha!

    Hope that your week is going well :)

  39. Leadership is influence, nothing more nothing less. Our influence with others usually is not in all areas.

  40. People of positive influence add value to others. People who influence others have integrity. The first great need therefore is integrity and great purpose.
    Helene Goldnadel

  41. Enlarging others begins with enlarging yourself first. What you have is what you give.

  42. You are so gorgeous! I absolutely love your lace top. I think the term "influencer" is so strange too. I know exactly what you mean. I love that you are selective about what brands you choose to work with
