It’s a new week and that means we have a brand new Youtube Video ready for you!!!! We have been blown away by the amount of people who have questions and responses to our videos where I introduce you to my way of saving our family memories.
I think there is so much interest in this topic because our audience is heavily made up of photographers and a large majority of you are parents. We love photography…. We love beautiful images…. But for some reason it’s SO stressful to think about documenting our own family!
I get that.
It’s almost like our JOB steals the JOY of photography away from being used in our everyday lives!
However, I have found that when you set aside some intense expectations and you just allow yourself to capture your family when it feels natural to and when you’re excited about it…. It CAN be done in a fun way.
We have had a REALLY busy few weeks recently. Since mid-July, my personal family documentation system has been put on hold as I launched a new website, shot three weddings and 3 other shoots, pursued some other personal projects and filmed a mini-details course (That is still coming! I promise! And it will be WORTH the WAIT!).
Oh yes…. And I’m pregnant and have two kids 3 and under.
Life gets crazy….
But last week, I had an evening after bedtimes were done that I printed a few family photos and culled through images I had taken during the summer and even though I’m not caught up on every aspect of my system from my busy weeks, because I have a system, I’m not stressed about it. I know exactly where to pick back up and I never get so far behind that I can’t catch back up!
Come January, I’ll be finalizing my 2020 Family Album and adding it to the collection!!!
So far, I’ve shared……
And NOW I’m releasing a video that is just focusing on the process and tips about actually making your family yearbook come to life each year!!
How special is this?! Another sweet KJ Couple turned KJ Family and I had the honored of capturing this fleeting season for them!
I want this podcast to be a place where you come to have more of a conversation with me about what’s going on in our day to day life!
Oh I just loved this session. The light, the outfit choices, the location, the family! It was all perfect and I’m so grateful for a chance to see a veteran KJ couple again!
This new AI feature in Lightroom has made it easier to now leave Photoshop behind and do almost EVERYTHING I need to in Lightroom! Wow!
I have come to realize that there have been so many people in my life who have shaped me and called me up to be the mom, wife, business owner, photographer I am today. I am sharing why I think mentorship is so valuable to every individual and invite you to consider who is helping you learn and grow!
This day was just perfection. I knew it would be from the moment Caitlin emailed me about being a part of their day. She and Devon are in the photography industry and I knew they would put a high value on the creative side of their day.
