A Rome, GA Anniversary Shoot | Mt. Berry College

  • Daniel + Anna | Married

thinking about what I wanted to write about in this post for a few days now. It’s hard to put into a few words how awesome this couple is and how I have come to know Anna over the years!! Anna attended one of our workshops several years ago when she was first starting her business. She was so talented and yet she had no idea how AMAZING she really was. :) I specifically remember her asking me before dinner the night of the workshop, “Katelyn, be honest… do you really think that I can do this?! Full time?!”. After asking a few questions about finances and her goals…. it was a no-brainer. She was more than ready to take this business on full time and so that’s what she did!

Bokeh's Growing Toy Collection

  • He's Spoiled Rotten

These toys are from Photographers and sweet friends of ours… some are all the way from AUSTRALIA!! (Thank you Karen!!! gah! You’re the best!!) Don’t buy into those sad puppy dog eyes and the adorable head tilt. You see, Bokeh Boy has this “look” that can make you want to scoop him up and smother him with kisses… especially when it’s time to say goodbye for yet another weekend away….. but don’t be fooled. He is not neglected… actually, he is the opposite.. this dog is SPOILED ROTTEN! Just look at him!! He’s sitting among a throne of NEW TOYS

Pursuit 31 Conference | Rome, GA

  • 5 Takeaways from P31 2014

It’s only day two… and I already feel like I’ve learned enough about myself that I could come home right now and work on those issues for the next year until the next p31 conference! Whew! What a few days…. full of lots of hugs, seeing really old friends, great food, hard talks, a few tears and a few realizations! While I wish I could just pour my heart out completely… there’s no time for that on here. Tomorrow is day 3 and I’m speaking!! AH! So I have to go continue prepping!! But before I do that, here are my top 5 things that I’m come to realize over the last 48 hours.
