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

Hi chandra, what do you attribute your success to?
I would say the most important factor behind my success is the amount of support I get from my family and friends. They are always helping me and pushing me to do my best, I wouldn’t be where I’m at without them!

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.
Being a photographer has been an amazing experience. I absolutely love capturing moments of families, couples, and portraits! One thing that sets me apart from others is how much time and effort I put into making props and editing. I am so proud of having a business, I never thought I would have my own, let alone a photography business. Building a business isn’t easy, there is always going to be challenges. I’ve learned that being flexible and taking time to learn new things will help me in the long run, also taking constructive criticism. Being a mother and running a business is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Day one- I would take them to fox run and have a picnic Day two- for breakfast – waffle house then go hike around red rocks
Day three – visit Rocky Mountain National Park
Day four- Relax and have lunch or dinner at Bubba 33s
Day five – Go to Denver and go to meow wolf
Day six- Go to the Abbey in Canon city
Day seven – Check out Manitou Springs

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My shoutout goes to my amazing husband! Since the day I picked up my first camera he is always there to help me learn. I would not be the photographer I am today without him always pushing me to do my best. No matter the prop or time of day he is always making time to help me make my business better and more efficient.
