There is a common theme in my business…. and I’m totally ok with it… I’m actually HONORED that this happens constantly. When I decide to CHANGE something in my business, there is a swarm of other business owners who are watching and want to know if they need to change too. I get it. Back in the day, I watched Jasmine Star like a hawk (Jstar, if you read this, it wasn’t in a creepy way, I promise!)
I just looked up to her so much and I considered her a GUIDE on my photography journey! So when we recently made a shift in the way we deliver free content to the world, we saw this happen again! When I started a Youtube Channel, there was a thread started in a few of our FB Group where people were asking a few big questions:
Friends, I think there are ALWAYS more things you could be doing in your business.
The question is…… SHOULD YOU???
Just because I launched a Youtube Channel doesn’t mean that’s the best thing for you…. or is it?! You can find out in this BRAND NEW EPISODE that just went live today!!! Watch below! :
I’m partnering with Tyler Herrinton, the force behind ALL things video that we do in our business, and I hope this will help give a little insight into why I started using Video more in my business and what is best for you!!!!
It’s been a while since I’ve photographed an engagement session at beautiful Maymont Park. Meeting Ryan and Danielle there was perfect even though I totally forgot that Maymont closes so early! We heard a reminder that the park would be closing soon and just as I started to feel a bit panicked, the clouds cleared, the sun started to shine and I was able to capture the most beautiful light before we unexpectedly had to leave the park!
This beautiful day began in the historic manor house at Belmont Country Club. Abby was showing me her details and then she gave me a gift and told me to open it. I questioned her because it just didn’t seem right for the photographer to be opening a gift on the bride’s wedding day but she insisted! Abby had made me a custom cross-stitch of Michael and I with cameras in our hands! It looks JUST like us and I was just amazed at her talent and thoughtfulness!
Ah! It’s our FINAL STUDENT SPOTLIGHT!!! This July post has been a long time coming but it’s HERE and it’s LIVE and I want you to help me celebrate these amazing photographers who are making their dreams happen!!!
This six month update feels like it’s weirdly disproportionate compared to other monthly updates! Why is that? Well, last month I posted a couple of sets of images that were actually at the beginning of his sixth month and THEN we photographed multiple weddings, had several trips away from home for a few days and the dads were for several days!
Hope and Jesse are the sweetest couple. You can just feel it when you’re with them! You can see it when you watch them interact. You can hear it in the stories that their family members and best friends shared about them. They are truly soulmates and best friends. They have an undeniable love for one another and that is why even a rainy, misty wedding day could be incredibly vibrant, warm and joyful!!
Rhett’s fifth month was full of fun. It’s crazy to me that I know I only take my big camera to about 10% of the things we do in a month and yet each month is SO full.
