I love lists. As I get older, I am starting to see little glimpses of how I am turning into my mother!… which isn’t a bad thing! My mother, by far, makes the most intensely detailed lists I know and she’s taught me well. It wasn’t uncommon for our “Vacation Packing” list to be 5 pages long with each item divided up but each child’s initials. Yes, it may be extreme, but it worked!
I’m definitely a “To-do” list writer. I have an unhealthy obsession with crossing off “completed tasks”. For instance, I will commonly write down something I’ve already completed, just to CROSS IT OFF MY LIST! There have been many days when I’ve finished something and became extremely disappointed when I realized it never made “The List” in the first place! haha
Wow. I probably shouldn’t have admitted to the Internet that I have a OCD obsession with “to-do” lists but I do want to share about a new little tool that has just recently increased the efficiency of Inspired Designs! (or is supposed to:) I recently became the owner of a Berry! My little Blackberry Curve follows me wherever I go and brings with it a constant connection to the Internet, email, …. and unfortunately… Facebook. I haven’t decided if this new addition is saving time but it sure is fun! The goal is to stay on top of emails, return Facebook messages, etc, so that I can have more time for work/fun when I’m actually at home for once! ha! We shall see if that actually happens!
ps: I love this little thing! …but we all know that in the magical world of technological happiness… this would definitely be an iphone! ;)
I’m so excited to share this final 2020 Wedding with you all!! It’s a special one! We photographed this beautiful wedding day on our own 10 year anniversary! Ten years ago on this day, we were celebrating in my parent’s backyard under a massive white tent too! This was my brother-in-law’s baby sister’s wedding day and celebrating with the Malizia family was such a treat! They are a family MADE for weddings!
Well, I realize this isn’t normal for KJ! I don’t shoot portraits these days but this session was my first non-wedding shoot with my new Canon R6 and I’m obsessed with how these images turned out! It was the most perfect evening for this early fall shoot and the light was incredible!
I’m so excited to share another addition of Student Spotlights from our KJ Education community! It’s so funny to us, but quite often, we find that our friends who know us in everyday life but aren’t in our industry really have no clue what we do! They think we shoot 10 weddings a year and that’s the extent of our work these days but oh… that couldn’t be further from the truth!
When we first decide if we’re a good fit with our potential KJ Couples, we’re looking for a few things…. one of those things is that this couple keeps joyful! We’ve found over the years that couples what take themselves super seriously aren’t always the best fit for us! We love it when couples let their guard down and allow us to get to know them during their engagement session.
For some photographers, bridal details seem like a fun part of the wedding day… but for many others, it’s stressful. It’s the part of the day that throws them off, makes them wonder if they’re actually artistic and leaves them feeling flustered and panicked because they never get everything done in the time they have allotted for detail shooting. In my opinion, this is a REALLY tough way to start a wedding day.
Oh, this wedding day!! What a beautiful Texan dream! I met Melanie when she attended one of our workshops years ago in our home. She had the sweetest spirit and such a kindness about her. I remember loving how she made personal marketing her own and did headshots in a pile of Skinny Pop!! I loved her creativity and her ability to envision what she wanted in her brand.
