pulled up in a shiny Chrysler 300 and I told Michael “Wow, they lucked out with a cool rental car!!”. Ashlie and Johnna got out of the car and I greeted them and then stated what I thought was the obvious “Nice rental car!”. Ashlie laughed and said of this isn’t a rental, this is mine!” I replied with “Umm, but aren’t you from TEXAS?!”. They laughed and told me that Johnna was from Texas and Ashlie was from Missouri and they DROVE HERE!!!!!!! Yes, they DROVE to Virginia from half a country away. They were so impressed with the mountains that they crossed in Charlottesville because they are from the plains.
It was so mind blowing to me that they came SO far but they made a roadtrip out of it and had a blast! I loved getting to know these two!!! Not only are they great friends, but Johnna is Ashlie’s AUNT! Crazy right? I can’t tell the whole story because I know I would mess it up! haha It was so much fun coaching them and I’m so honored that they made the drive all the way to VA to spend the day with us!
Two days ago I had the honor of meeting Brooke and Terri! They are from opposite parts of the state. Brooke is from Virginia Beach and Terri lives in Fredericksburg. Brooke is the momma to an almost one year old and let me tell you, he’s a cutie! Terri works in Richmond full time AND runs a business on the side… talk about a lot of work! She has lived all over and as she gave me a little background on her life, she mentioned that she was actually a HAIR model at one point! These are the little details that I love hearing!! I can totally see it, she has gorgeous hair!! :) It was so wonderful getting to know these two this week. We had quite a hot day for headshots but they made it look easy!! Enjoy some of my favorites from this month’s coaching sessions!
Johnna you’re beautiful! Look at that model face!! Get it girl! How beautiful is Terri?! Love her smile! (And her hair of course!:) Gorgeous! Please let me look like this after having a child only 11 months ago! Lucky girl!! Love her colors! Yay for new friends!!!!
There has never been a year quite like 2020. It started off so normal, so simple and so carefree. Then, March/April hit and it felt like everything was turned upside down!
Another month. I had forgotten just how fast it goes when they are this tiny. One minute they are in 0-3 month clothes and the next you’re unpacking 6month options!
How is it MARCH already in 2021?! This year is flying by and we’re getting closer and closer to the beginning of wedding season! At least we are here in Virginia! It’s my honor to get to introduce you to some of our KJ Students who are doing the hard work of educating themselves and growing their businesses! My hope is that their stories and advice will be an encouragement to anyone wanting to grow and feel confident before wedding season picks up!
Welcome to a brand new installment of KJ Student Spotlight!! It’s always a good day on the blog when we get to introduce you to some of our students and share their wins and advice!!! These three students have taken courses, watched Youtube episodes, are KJ All Access members, use our templates and have invested in themselves time and time again in order to grow their businesses! They deserve this recognition!!!
Here it is! Post one of twelve! I’m committing, once again, to blogging my favorite images each month of Everett’s first year and I’m excited about it because I know from past experience that this is truly the BEST motivation and accountability to stay on top of family editing!!
It’s hard to believe I’m writing this… my fourth birth story in four years. I’ve given birth in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Just typing that makes me tired….. and so grateful…. unbelievably grateful. These last four years have been the best and hardest of my life. We cherish being parents and welcoming a new baby is hands down the most incredible thing we have ever experienced in our 18 years together. I’m so excited to introduce you to our newest member of our family and tell you the story of how he came into this world!
