New Memories on Memorial Day

  • Our New Family Project

So, if you follow us on Snapchat (Katelyn Alsop), you’ve already seen A LOT of our secret project. I’d be lying if I didn’t say that this project has been a little consuming over the last 6 months!! Before I get into the “project” side of this announcement, let me first explain the story. If you’ve followed me for a few years, you know that we have a deep love for family outings on the boat and RV’ing. We grew up traveling in a camper together as a family because we really couldn’t afford to take a family of five to a decent hotel for a week.

  • Ask Anything

I sure hope I’m not the only one who dealt with this. When I started my business it almost felt like I had split personalities.

I think I went back and forth between these two views of myself because I created this business all by myself. I never took a class, I didn’t have a degree in business OR photography, and I never had anyone tell me that I was qualified for the job! I just WENT for it!!!
