Ok y’all, let me start this post by saying that I LOVE my Rothy’s. Literally love them. But! Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case from the start, so I wanted to write this post for anyone that has been on the fence about buying a pair just to hear an honest review that isn’t simply saying […]

If you know me at all, then I hope you know how obsessively organized I am!  I just feel like it frees up brain space throughout the day for my life, calendar/schedule, and physical surroundings to be organized.  Physical clutter or disorganization for me equals mental clutter and our life, as I imagine yours, is […]

Have you ever felt so blind to something taking place for so long right before your eyes that once you were aware, you were a little in shock and quite ashamed?? Once the “off season” kicked in last year, I did a lot of reflecting on the prior months that were spent primarily managing an […]

I spent a lot of 2017 in a state of overwhelm and I decided early on that I wasn’t going to give away another year to feeling that way.  I started making changes to my daily routine to combat that and there was one small, yet mighty change that helped clear my brain from the […]

Wow, it feels good to be back writing to y’all!!  It’s been little while and I wanted to keep it real  today, so there’s lots of honesty and vulnerability in this post!!!  But! What better way to start off the year than with a little heart to heart?! I’m anxious to begin sharing client images […]

I know, I know.. the title sounds kind of scary, right?  Or are you confused?  “Did she mean to say service or disservice?” … Nope you heard me right.  I said disservice!

I’ve noticed a trend in the photography industry and I know deep down that it probably needs to stop.  My little blog post may not make much of an impact on the entire industry, but I am hoping that it speaks to at least someone!!

I originally came into my office this morning to edit because goodness knows I am backed up with that.  I was about halfway through when I decided that I just needed to share a little of whats on my heart with yall and now was as good of time as any to start writing this post.

I haven’t shared much of whats really on my heart lately because the truth is that Im just confused by it all.  I’ve felt a little lost and confused within my business these last few months.  

Part of that was contributed by figuring out how building a business and raising a family are going to coincide together in our household.  Its tough enough to figure out a new role as a mom, then add growing a business to that and its a recipe for some serious time of “still just figuring it out”….

I’ve been a little quiet on social media the last few days and I even went an entire week without blogging.  It wasn’t for lack of wanting to, as much as it was that my mind was preoccupied.  I’ve been doing a bit of “soul searching” if you will and I really just wanted to offer transparency in sharing my heart with you today. 

The truth is that I am in a season of not having it all figured out, and thats a bit foreign to me if Im being honest!  I am certainly that person that needs it all figured out all the time , so I am way out of my comfort zone here!

Hoary! Its fri-yay, yall!!  Whoop whoop!!  Do you ever just have those days (or weeks) where nothing quite goes as planned?? You have every intention of hustling in your business and you succeed at that for one day, but then spend the next three days catching up on other life stuff??  Yeah, you know what Im talking about!  Well, Im having one of those weeks so this post is going to be short and sweet 🙂

I wanted to share a quick business tip with yall on how I keep all of my to do lists straight!!  You’ve got lots going on in your life between the to dos and the ideas and just all of the things!!

As a new mother, I was really struggling with the “work from home mom” adjustment.  I was used to being able to work from sun up to sundown if I wanted and when I started one project, it was my decision whether to work till it was finished or close up shop early.  

I quickly learned that those days of being in control of my own schedule had passed after I finished maternity leave and began working again with a little one to also take care of throughout the day.
