I really liked the options they offer and that their cards are generally a little larger and thicker than most business cards. Since the beginning, I’ve been really impressed by both their products and the ease of [ Continue Reading ... ]

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 ... ]

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 ... ]

The results from last year’s blog survey were so helpful, I knew I’d want to do it again sometime. So this year as I’m thinking about making some changes to the way that I blog, I’m actually looking for your feedback again! This time, though, I want to say thank you by giving away a [ Continue Reading ... ]

I’ve been meaning to write this post for some time now, but I just never really had a chance to sit down and do it. Now that I’ve finally got a few minutes to write about these gorgeous albums, I’m REALLY excited to share them with you guys! After researching a few album companies, I [ 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 ... ]
