Hi there! i’m katelyn.

Hello, and welcome to the KJ Blog! I'm Katelyn James, and my husband Michael and I are a wedding photography team based in Richmond, Virginia. We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!  Read more...

February 2012

  • The Snapshot

think that “Wedding Wednesday’s” don’t exist anymore!! Well, they do, no worries…. but today is the 1st of the month and I’m trying to get better about staying consistent with my monthly to-do’s on the 1st of the month.  I have a “Monthly Duty Day” that I’m sure I’ll blog about sometime. Basically, I have a list of little things that HAVE to be accomplished each month and I choose one day to do them all! So today is the day! It’s also time for this month’s SNAPSHOT post! I just re-read my january post and I have to say that I acomplished almost EVERYTHING in the “Business Goals” section! That’s a HUGE WIN for me!!

Legacy Wedding Albums

  • Creating an Heirloom

and that means tomorrow is Wednesday…(I’m brilliant, I know).  So if tomorrow is Wednesday, that means I’m half way through the week…. and I haven’t gotten half of my work done yet! So…. today has to be incredibly efficient! I’m trying this new method of a to-do list where I schedule everything… if I’m not done with emails after an hour… the rest will have to wait until later. I’m trying to be strict!! Puppy potty breaks happen every hour on the hour and blogging needs to only take an hour and a half! GAH! So that means I need to hurry! I apologize in advance for my typos…. I’m sure my mother or sister will correct all of them when they read this post.

Getting Organized

  • The "Production Wall"

has been a work in progress for the last year and a half. You see, when you run your business out of a DORM ROOM for two years, it takes a while to really get organized once you have a “big girl office”. I have filing cabinets and charts and places to actually DISPLAY my sample albums. Before I got married and was in college, I stored my whole business in a room smaller than most people’s walk-in closets! It’s amazing “Katelyn James Photography” didn’t shut down after year one!!  So today I’m showing my latest project that I have been working on recently. I finished my craft closet and now I’ve conquered the “Production Wall”.
