Eek! I love this one. I know I start every blog post talking about how much I loved each of the sessions, and really – it is always true – but I absolutely adore the way these turned out. Meredith wanted to use some of the backdrop options in the lobby for the salon near […]

My first team consisted of four seniors representatives. Three from Greenbrier high, and one from East Robertson. When I first started teams, I honestly had no clue what the goal was going to be. I just knew that it was super common in the Senior Portrait industry, and that all my mentors suggested that I […]

Black. Leather. Metal. Dramatic Makeup. Attitude. All of these things happen to be my favorite. People with an edgy style seem unafraid and inherently cool. It may be the hardest to pull off, but when you do???? OH BOY! It blows me away every time. When choosing outfits, no matter what your style is, I […]

The pandemic has taken so much away, and with that we’ve had to do a lot of swerving and pivoting. One thing I’ve really loved, however, is how my team sessions have ended up. I haven’t done “mini sessions” in SO very long, but with group size restrictions I have had to make the necessary […]

Just like with every new year, we have new goals. Personal goals and business goals… New blogging goals are on the top of my list, because I know I’ve fallen behind on the blog over the last year. There are a few reasons why I like to blog – One, I love to write… Even […]

Some of the hardest blog entries for me to write are the ones I put off for the longest. Kind of like when you have a TON of work to do and all you want to do is take a little nap to avoid it for a little while… Anyone else? When I have a […]

Kaitlynn reached out a couple of months ago and told me she’d like to do portraits to really symbolize her college experience and her mental health journey.  She and I have been in some shows together and I’ve known her for some time, so I knew a little bit about her story and I knew […]

We did it, you guys! We made it to December and completed an entire year’s worth of Vintage Pattern Project!!! I couldn’t be more proud of my friend Jodi for the hard work she’s put into this project in 2019. She had an idea and saw it through to the end, and that in itself […]

What a year, am I right?? I shot somewhere around 110 sessions this year, which absolutely blows my mind… From teens, to high school seniors, to college kids and college seniors to theatre productions and promo shoots, headshots, families, newborn babies and baby plans, births and maternity, small business owners and community events… I was […]

Can you believe we’re already at November???? I think it’s pretty telling of how busy I’ve been considering the fact that the last thing I blogged was October. Whoops. It’s Fall, y’all. Fall is crazy town for Photographers. Working two shoots (or more??) a day, editing until I fall asleep on my laptop… All while […]

Can we just talk for a minute about this ORANGE BACKDROP?? I’ve been so excited to use it since we started talking about this project. Seriously – it’s been the one I’ve been most excited about, I think.  I’m not sure… I may actually say that every single month at this point. When we first […]

I usually try to post the month’s Vintage Pattern Project blog entry DURING that month or at least on the first day of the next month, but let’s be real… It’s only a few days into October, and it felt like July outside until this morning so we’re just gonna roll with it… September’s Vintage […]

What a fun time Courtney and I had in the studio!! When she called about headshots, we started talking about her / what would make sense for her / what she does and she told me that she owns a business called Fit Strong Mama, which she operates out of her basement. It’s a web-based […]
