One Door, Two Dozen Poses

  • Ask Anything

This isn’t going to be a long post… why you may ask? Well, because it’s very simple to explain… you can do SO MUCH MORE in the locations that you’re shooting in! You really can. The issue isn’t that you need more locations, it’s that you don’t know which pose to do next! This post is one that is hopefully going to inspire you to push yourself and really MAXIMIZE every single location that you’re shooting in!!

Have You Missed Him?

  • Bokeh Boy is Checking In...

Well friends, we have one conference left… a few engagement sessions and a road trip to Chapel Hill this Thursday night before we can officially say that we’re done with the CRAZY! This fall has been one wild ride and we’ve MISSED THIS SWEET FACE! Last night during our webinar (which was amazing! Thanks to the THOUSANDS of you who showed up! WOW!!!) Bokeh popped his head into the video almost like he was trying to say “Hey! Remember Me! I’m still cute and fluffy!!”

The Calendar Clearer

  • One Guaranteed Way to Clear Your Calendar

Let’s start this post by backtracking through October. October was crazy. I don’t even remember parts of it happening. I was home and sleeping in my own bed 3 nights out of the whole month and I’m not proud of that. I think that’s sad and I don’t do the whole “BUSY as a badge of Honor” thing. I know it’s not normal or healthy or impressive…. but “BUSY” has been the story of our life these last 6 weeks. CreativeLive, The Workshop Experience, UNITED, Pursuit, Bahamas, MTH, The Blink Conference, Creative at Heart… these are all of the things, outside of weddings, that I’ve agreed to be a part of this fall and it’s a lot. I know it’s a lot. However, I also know that it is an HONOR to have a chance to influence so many different pockets of people. This is our season for this. This is what God has for us…. but God also knows our limits and when we start to depend on ourselves. :)
