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 ... ]

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. Last week I was actually in Vegas for the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) conference and, well, Vegas life doesn’t leave much time for writing. [ Continue Reading ... ]

I’ve pretty much had my eye on an iPad (haha pun intended) since the first one came out. I never really had the opportunity to buy one though, until this last year. I’m a huge fan of gadgets and electronics (I’d way rather get a new iPhone or something than a piece of jewelry as [ Continue Reading ... ]

I think I’m tired of the word dream. It’s kind of overused these days, and you know what? I’ve decided I want to be a doer, not a dreamer. Doers make things happen and get shit done. And dreamers, well, they’re asleep. Plus, I recently rewatched Inception and it kind of freaked me out…what if [ Continue Reading ... ]

It’s that time of year again! Time to reflect on how I did and prepare for the new year:) This year was pretty great…we went from a “me” to a “we” as John joined the business as my full time second shooter, and had SO many adventures together along the way.

I kind of can’t believe that I’m just now sitting down to write about this! Envision was such a whirlwind from start to finish and I can’t believe it’s over! ┬áIt blows my mind to think that a month ago the girls and I were busy wrapping up presentations, running errands, and prepping for our [ Continue Reading ... ]
