we spent the day with Justin & Mary and their amazing crew in DC for the “What’s Next” tour! …. and when I say we spent the DAY… I mean ALL DAY. 10+ hours! That’s how much we love them. It was SUCH a fun time. I just adore the photographers from the surrounding areas. They are simply amazing, genuine and sweet!! I had the chance to see some old faces, some new faces and some friends that flew in all the way from CA!! We have one of those great CA friends staying with us for the day as we prepare for the Global SHARE that’s being broadcasted live from our house…
… yes, our cozy baby house that’s the size of an apartment. ha! Lets just say, we’re going to get close. We’re so honored to be a part of this community and I’m excited to just share life and catch up with some of our fellow SHARE group members from around the area!! So while I’m typing this, Michael is vacuuming and Bokeh is snuggling with Andrew Barlow…. what better way to start the day. haha I’m off to finish emails and put away laundry!!! Exciting right? :) Have a fabulous weekend! If you’re on the east coast, enjoy our little taste of snow before it melts!!!

This beautiful day way unlike any wedding I have ever photographed before. It’s hard to put into words how powerful and inspiring it was.
If you’ve been following my updates since I got the R6 two years ago, you know I LOVE it!! It has been a game changer for me! But there is ONE mistake that I’ve made that cannot be fixed afterwards!
There are things that EVERY photographer should have on their website! We will walk through some students’ websites to see how small changes can impact their perceived value, and for you to see if what they’re missing is something that you are too!
You know what I’m realizing? I’m realizing I am loving getting to see people I love and miss in this very busy season of our life.
We’re gearing up for wedding season and there are so many ways to market yourself DURING a wedding to keep new clients coming in! I have been a wedding photographer for 13 years, and I have never paid for ‘traditional’ advertising!
I am eating my words again! For years, I have used InDesign for everything… but Canva had a HUGE update last year which changed everything!!
