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!!
32 Years. Over three decades. Can you image the impact? My dad accepted the call to our tiny little part of Virginia when I was just 18mos old.
Off season is here!! For wedding photographers, this is hopefully a time to rest and rejuvenate before busy season kicks back in. This is also a great time to focus on some back-end business tasks you might have had on your plate for a while now.
2021 was a year to remember! I decided to close out YouTube for the year, by reflecting back on life lessons 2021 taught me – what worked, what didn’t and what I hope to remember as I move into 2022.
You guys know talking about the tech side of a photography business is not my expertise… but thankfully it IS Tyler’s!!! I asked him to take over this YouTube video because I want to help you figure out which Mac is going to be the best one for you (even though I shouldn’t be the one to help you with that!!)!
It’s been years since I’ve done a round-up of some of my favorite images from the year! I struggle to narrow these down and so I decided to showcase some of the images with the best candid emotions!
Welcome back to another Behind the Image! In this series I take you behind the scenes of a real wedding day and then analyze one image! Today we’re analyzing an image from a wedding we shot back in May that should NOT have worked…but it did!!
