I am a 20 year old photographer, homegrown in Chehalis, WA. I have 3 home businesses, my photography, Time Struck Photography, I am an independent distributor for It Works, and have a fantasy/sci-fi themed accessories and costuming business (like Etsy items) which runs under Time Struck Trinkets and is often made to order/custom pieces so I rarely list them online.
I grew up in a household with a single mother of three who really did have the world against her, and I learned a lot. I started my own business the day after I turned 18 and never looked back. I understand the value of connections, experiences, and people outweigh by far the value of a slip of paper, and that life is more than waking up, paying bills, and dying.
