My Album Design Process with ALIGN

  • Ask Anything

greatest advice I have been given in my business over the last 6 years is to outsource what I absolutely do not HAVE to do to someone else. This is hard for me. I realized early on that I have some control issues when it comes to editing and album design. However, I knew that these were two things that were stealing my life away from me. I had to learn to let go and trust other professionals in the industry to do this part of my job… and you know what… the craziest thing happened…my business GREW when I let go!!

With Bokeh Boy

  • Snow Day

been a while since Bokeh boy has had a blog post to himself. I remember when we first brought him home, people told me that I wouldn’t take as many pictures of him once he got older and I’m determined to prove them wrong! :) I actually think that Bokeh is just as cute now as he was when he was a puppy! It’s a different kind of “cute” but it’s still CUTE! He brings so much joy to our lives and we’re trying to show him a little extra love since his grandparents just got a bichpoo puppy of their own and Bokeh has had a hard time with that. haha HUGE jealously issues!! He just loves his “people”

A Downtown Lexington Engagement Shoot

  • Aaron + Meredith | Engaged

have been many moments in my business where I have made some amazing connections. It’s just crazy how the internet works! Meredith started following my blog years and years ago because I had taken some pictures of a family that we’re mutual friends with. At the time, that little shoot didn’t seem like a big deal at all…. however, I had no idea how God was going to use it years down the road. Meredith kept following the blog and we made a connection through our mutual friend, Kim and before I knew it, I received the “Ah! I’m engaged!” email from Meredith.
