Styled Shoot | February 2014 Workshop Experience

  • Fairytale Wedding Inspiration

wasn’t our most recent workshop styled shoot, this was the Fairytale shoot from our February workshop! I get chilly just thinking about it!!! It was a whopping 32 degrees and we had freezing rain during the whole shoot. Talk about a tricky situation! I had to get great shots, teach photographers and keep a freezing bride a live at the same time! Alicia was AH-MAZING. I mean, she’s always amazing but she and Rob truly rocked it out at this shoot!!! I couldn’t thank them enough. We couldn’t feel our hands or feet or noses. It was THAT cold. How she wasn’t blue? I have no idea!!

How Do You Get Stuff Done?

  • Ask Anything

I wish I could answer that question in one sentence but there are so many things that come into play when it comes to getting stuff DONE! I think the MAIN tips I have would be to 1. Make time and SCHEDULE time to get big chunks of work done. 2. Be realistic about all that you have to do and when you’re going to get it done. and 3. Have a GREAT system that works for YOU! Don’t download the world’s best “To-do” app if you’re a “pen and paper” kind of gal! I probably spent $50 over the years trying to make those Apps work for me but I quickly learned that those couldn’t be a part of my system! And that’s ok :) So in July 2012,

28 Reasons I Love you on your 28th!

  • Happy Birthday to Michael!!!

I can’t believe it’s already May 7th! Again! It seems like yesterday I was telling you that you were getting OLD because you had just turned 27…. and now you’re 28!! :) It’s crazy how fast our years are flying by. It feels like yesterday we were driving to youth group on your old white maxima with the sunroof open. Sometimes I can’t believe how blessed I am to have NEVER known life without you. I can’t even imagine it. My childhood, my awkward years, my first year in high school, college….. you’ve been a part of my life during every. single. season.
