UNITED 2015

  • Big Hair, Black Ties & Big Hearts

The beautiful thing about traveling to all of the these crazy conferences is that when we get there, we feel like we’re at a family reunion. Over the last 3-4 years we’ve grown strong friendships with such dear friends and peers in the industry. We count down the days until each time we get to see each other and we pick up where we left off immediately. These people get us. They get our insecurities, our fears, our struggles, our dreams. They understand our crazy schedules and don’t judge us for them. They see when we’re overwhelmed and they know how to make it better. They pray with us before we walk on stage and they’re vulnerable about where they are in life.

Micro Changes, Macro Results

  • Ask Anything

This isn’t going to be a long post. I’m not going to sit here and write paragraphs and paragraphs about how to get more business FAST! I don’t think it’s that easy. The truth is, we just finished a long 2 day workshop and the resounding theme of it was that success doesn’t come to those that want a quick fix. It comes to those who are passionate, who fight for it and who WAIT for it. I’ll be honest, I grew quickly when I first started my business….but I also only slept 4-5 hours a night in college because I was working hard to make this thing happen.

PASS & My Image Sharing Process

  • Deciding to Move Forward

of mine are just crazy. Like the time I booked a wedding in SC and then the a wedding the next day in VA…. yea, I did that.  Sometimes I have GRAND plans and visions for something and then a few weeks go by and I realize that my “idea” really wasn’t that amazing.  Oh! Like remember the “Design Book” idea?! I paid big bucks to have provide a way for my blog stalkers to save their “favorites” in different categorized folders! I thought I was a genius!…. And then PINTEREST was invented.  Ha! This world of photography AND technology is CHANGING… and it’s changing FAST.
