Sky Naite | Blogger
Sky Naite is a photographer, model and editor of her eponymous blog. Born in Lithuania, she was raised in Chicago, and currently living in sunny Los Angeles. Fashion & photography have always been a big part of my life. When I am not in front of the camera modeling, I am behind the lens myself photographing my style, travels and daily life.
Tell us about the path that led you to where you are today.
My passion for photography and fashion have inspired me to become more active on social media and start blogging to share my special moments and everyday life events with the rest of the world. As much as I love sharing my personal style, my biggest passion is taking photos. I believe you can find and capture beauty in absolutely everything!
What inspired you to start blogging?
Ever since social media became a big part of daily life, I found myself looking at fellow bloggers who constantly inspired me and helped me explore my own creative side. After following their blogs for a while, it inspired me to start my own. I’m truly thankful to every single one of them, because if not for their inspiration, I would have never turned my dreams into a reality.
Can you share some of your major successes and failures with us? And, what did you learn from these experiences?
Because I’m a new blogger, I have not had much of either. My experience has been very consistent so far. I have come across many great companies that I have been working with for quite a while now, both national and international. I have made business friends and have been invited to many amazing social networking events. I have learned that you will never find out what is out there if you don’t completely put yourself out there!
What three pieces of advice do you have for other women who are just getting started?
(1) Be different. Do not be scared to be different. If you want to do something in a completely different way than every other influencer, go for it! Because at the end of the day, being different is what makes every single one of us stand out.
(2) Explore the creative side of yourself. Get a camera and start taking photos of what inspires you. Creating original content is the key to success.
(3) Escape. Ever since I started a blog, it has been my escape and therapy. I love the idea of grabbing my computer and sharing anything that comes to my mind.
Current favorite fashion accessory?
Because of the festival season, my closet has been taken over by all sorts of boho statement accessories.
Coffee or tea?
Coffee all the way! Iced. Hot. As long as it’s coffee, I will drink it any time of day.
