How To Grow Your Blog Following

  • Ask Anything

is probably my MOST asked question in Coaching sessions, FAQ emails and workshops. I encourage blogging for SO many reasons….. if I were to explain to you ALL of the reasons I blog, it would take about an hour!! I just shared this at the UNITED conference in Santa Barbara and the more I talk and share about it, the more I realize how many people need to hear about it! Blogging has done wonders for our business. So when I teach about blogging and why it’s SO important, my #1 question from my audience is “Well how do you get people to FOLLOW you?!”. That’s a legitimate question! Why blog when no one is

  • Coaching

last few months have been a whirlwind and we have had several coaching sessions mixed into our schedule! They were a blast! Two of them were out of town and I loved the change of scenery for headshots!! I think the most rewarding part of coaching is when I get a glimpse into these photographer’s lives. They’re all SO different. Different stories, different beginnings, new beginnings, different traditions and backgrounds….. This group kept me on my toes because all of them have different life situations.  This is why coaching never gets old!! …. Because it’s never the same!

Sweet Friends & Celebrations

  • The Bride & Groom Shower

sleeting outside and Facebook is full of frustrated comments about how old man winter needs to go ahead and leave. I’m the odd ball that actually loves bad weather. Sure, it’s not ideal when it gets in the way of our plans, but it slows life down…. and I like that. We’re gearing up for wedding season but the last week has been so wonderful. We didn’t have much on the calendar. We had several just “stay at home” work days and I got a lot accomplished. So bring on one last snow storm because I like the way it feels when life comes to a stand still for a day…. AND I have wedding invitations to design!
