Save Time & Money in Tax Season!

  • Ask Anything

anyone ready for tax season to be OVER?! This girl is!!! Whew. Everyone dreads this time of the year and all of the small business owners are PRAYING that their estimated taxes and write-off’s will be enough to cover their return. Well, while I can’t promise to save you a TON of money on your taxes, I CAN share with you how we have saved ourselves some tax-prep time by making simple changes in our business. Taxes don’t have to be so scary and overwhelming! For years I just barely understood what the tax process was even though I’m DEFINITELY not a pro now,

A Social Media / Marketing Workshop

  • Small Business Socials

This is one of those days that seems surreal. There was a time in my business 3 years ago that I was barely keeping my head above water and I didn’t have time to dream or grow or explore anything new. Those were the days before outsourcing and GREAT systems. :) Now, I’m still busy but because I have handed over some things that I don’t HAVE to be doing, I can dream again!! One of my most recent goals has been to be able to teach ALL TYPES of small business owners! I did a coaching session with my friend Amanda a few weeks ago and she’s a floral designer… not a photographer!!

A Charlottesville Engagement Session | Belle Haven

  • Dan + Katelyn | Engaged

are some couples that I meet and instantly click with. Dan and Katelyn would definitely fall into that category. We met at beautiful Belle Haven plantation outside of Charlottesville and we were greeted by the property owner’s labradoodle! I’ve shot at this location before and so I was ready for the furry greeting. We chatted for a few minutes and then we started shooting. Dan and Katelyn just get it. They wanted pictures that showed THEM and their love and that’s my specialty!!
