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

Hi Shaina, do you have some perspective or insight you can share with us on the question of when someone should give up versus when they should keep going?
I love this question because it implies giving up IS an option. I think giving up should only be things you grow out of but not for things they get too hard. You keep going because it’s something that drives you.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m excited for what 2021 has in store for me. I like to think I’m someone who has a very versatile and unique look so that combined with my passion for this, there’s nothing but better opportunities on the horizon for me.

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?
Ok so if she’s flying in on a Sunday, straight off the plane: brunch at the 94th Aero Squadron. Monday we go to seaport village and grab lunch. Tuesday we take a beach day and go to Belmont Park then La Jolla Cove. Wednesday, we definitely have to make a stop in southeast to go to the Barrel. Thursday is our chill day. Then Friday-Saturday we’re hitting north park bars (The Office Bar being one) and going Downtown to Fluxx, the Owl, and F6ix

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to dedicate my shoutout to my mom. She’s always been my backbone supporting me through anything I wanted to do. I’d also like to thank all of the photographers that wanted to collaborate with me and helped me build my portfolio!
