Pompy Portraits was born as Davila Designs and was started by a dream Angelica had. Angelica’s photography journey start at Cady & Cady, which is a senior studio in Jacksonville, Florida. My role there an elite senior photographer for the high school seniors.
In 2017, Angelica rebranded from Davila Designs to be Pompy Portraits. Angelica was working full time as she grow this side hustle. It was always her dream one day to be her own boss which seemed unrealistic at that time. She always had an idea of having her own photo booth business and constantly shared her ideas with her co-workers at the time.
Fast forward to Summer of 2017, when a co-worker asked Angelica if it was possible for her to have her photo booth ready for her daughter’s wedding. Knowing Angelica, research was going to be done, and there would be a plan of execution when it came to her photo booth dream. Angelica brought me into the fold, and we began discussing ideas and she found the photo booth design model she wanted to purchase online – BUT knowing the budget was tight, she knew there was a way to design this photo booth on her own with a little bit of help. You can tell Angelica was passionate about this due to the sheer amount of research she had completed. She made my job of understanding simple.We decided to build our first photo booth before reaching out to a manufacturer to create one. We were so lucking to have a family friend, More like your favorite fake grandpa, to help us build the first photo booth.
Our first ever photo booth was our prize possession, but of course, it was very flawed. With a few events under our belt, we decided to go with a manufacture and purchase our first modern open air photo booth. Coming to the end of year two, we retired the first photo booth and invested in to modern open air photo booths today.
