Work from Rest, Rest from Work

  • Enjoying the Down Time

Work from rest and rest from work. We’re not perfect at it but we’re trying to get better at making time to have fun and get away from the laptop. This weekend we fly to Illinois to speak at the Reset Conference and then we headed to Big Spring Farm for a few days. It’s amazing what 2-3 days of minimal working can do for the soul. We all need that. Michael and I know that we need to work on our “resting” skills. It really doesn’t come natural for me….. but the past 3 days were proof that I’m getting better… little by little! :)

3 Lies that Experienced Photographers Believe

  • Ask Anything

There is a lot of content out there for the new photographer. Blog posts, workshops, coaching, tutorials, etc. There is so much focus on the new photographer that sometimes I wonder what’s out there for ME?! What’s out there for the photographer that has been in business for 3,4, even 7 years?! How do WE grow? Honestly, I have a lot of ideas and thoughts on this subject. If I had all of the time in the world, I would make some of these ideas come to life… one day… one day:) Overall, I think there is a hole in the industry for the experienced photographer. We can always learn from the education that is out there for the newer photographers but honestly, there is a whole other world out there that is completely untapped.

THE 2015 RESET CONFERENCE

  • Speaking Recap | Champaign, Illinois

What a whirlwind of a weekend! Michael and I flew out Saturday evening and after meeting up with our dear friends Zach, Jody and Jaxon, we boarded our connecting flight to Champaign, Illinois! We were headed to the Reset Conference! This was my first time attending and speaking at Reset but from the moment we met Kellie and Rebekah, we were in love. These two had a dream and they made it happen.
