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!!
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!
Whether you’re brand new to business or have been in business for quite a while, this brand new Youtube video is for you! Michael and I, early on in our business, struggled to relinquish tasks to other professionals outside of our business. Really…. It was more of MY STRUGGLE than his.
Welcome to December’s Student Spotlight!! It’s a new month and we have new photographers to celebrate!! I’m so thankful for them and for their willingness to give of their time and share their stories!!!
This shoot was supposed to happen about a month earlier on the exact day that leftover rains from a hurricane swept through Washington. I’m so thankful we rescheduled! Our reschedule date was absolute perfection! The temperature, the glow, the locations…. it was beautiful! Tyler and Abby’s outfit choices were wonderful and the leaves were full of color and still hanging on the trees.
When Michael and I were in our early years of dating, I would go on trips with his family for Thanksgiving and summer trips to West Virginia and I spent time with his cousins! “Bri-Bri” was so little! He’s the youngest of all of the cousins and it’s crazy to think that he’s old enough to be getting MARRIED! He’s actually older than we were when we got married!! We have known Shannon for years and we were THRILLED when we heard that Brian had proposed because we always hoped that would happen!!!
Maybe it’s just me…. but I feel like this fall is FLYING by! It seems like just the other day that I was sharing about three more KJ Students who are doing amazing things in their businesses! Well, this weeks marks the beginning of November and I have three amazing students to introduce you too!!!
