One of my goals for this off season was to finally create a wedding guide of my own. I love that fellow wedding photographers have been implementing these for their businesses, and after seeing a few that turned out amazing, I decided to create one for my 2015 and 2016 clients.

Ever used Evernote? Haha. I was dying to type that! Now that it’s out of my system, I can act like an adult. Maybe.

When I first started this business, I had no idea that it was going to (literally) take me so many places. Traveling 2-3+ hours almost every weekend (or every other weekend) during busy season wasn’t something I had really envisioned for myself or my business. But, like a lot of other things I never imagined [ Continue Reading … ]

A lot of people have blogged about what an ideal day for them is like, but since I’ve been self employed I can’t really say that many of my days are exactly the same as the others! I have so many different hats to wear (photographer, editor, blogger, bookkeeper, accountant, marketing executive, customer service, etc) [ Continue Reading … ]

My off season ends this weekend, so I thought I’d go over my off season goals and see how I did! Try out some new ways to deliver my images to clients.

Hello there! I think this is the longest I’ve gone without blogging since I started the blog! I’m so sorry for my absence over the past almost two weeks.
