Today is a big day, friends! I’m so excited to share that registration is open for the next Blogging for Creative Entrepreneurs Workshop! I got such amazing feedback from my April workshop attendees that I couldn’t wait to organize and launch the next one! I’ve been working hard these last few months at reflecting on […]

I recently featured a vendor on my blog (in this post) and since then, I’ve been asked by a few photographers why I feature other vendors on my blog. Since it’s a question I’ve been asked more than once, today I thought I would answer it in a blog post. Why feature other vendors on your blog? There are […]

Today’s post is all about workflows! I’ve been using 17hats as our client management software for almost two years now but I’ve never really blogged about it. I love 17hats for many of its features, and one of my favorites is for its ability to manage my workflows. There is a lot that happens behind […]

If you’re a business owner, I’ve bet you’ve come across this quote more than once: “A brand is not a logo. A brand is not a slogan. A brand is not an identity, corporate or otherwise. A brand is not a symbol or a shape……a brand is the total sensory experience a customer has with […]

Exactly seven years ago today, I decided that I wanted to share my photography work somewhere, but I didn’t quite know where or how. I did a few online searches and stumbled upon Blogger. They offered free blogs and were super easy to set up. Within minutes, I made an account and created this post. I didn’t quite […]

Well, the warmer weather is finally here!! And with that comes one of my favorite seasons for engagement sessions! I’m so looking forward to capturing our new couples!

I think any photographer would agree that social media can be an amazing marketing tool for businesses. But it can also be a huge nuisance when you’re trying to juggle a million other tasks, right? As business owners, we have a lot of jobs to complete and it’s hard to keep up with social media when […]

I’m so excited to share a recap of last weekend’s Blogging for Creative Entrepreneurs Workshop (#BFCEworkshop)! This workshop was nothing but a dream for a long time and I kept delaying it for any reason that came my way. Last fall, I finally decided that I’d make it happen this past winter, but then my […]

Ahhh my workshop just sold out, you guys! I can hardly believe it but all the spots are filled for this Sunday! Honestly, after my dad’s unexpected health issues this winter I didn’t think I’d be able to put this workshop together in time before our busy wedding season really took off but thanks to […]

As part of my Workflow series this month, I’m sharing a tool for getting to know clients and vendors: questionnaires! If you don’t have questionnaires implemented in your workflow, today is the day to make a change! There are lots of different types of questionnaires that you can use in your business and today I’m going […]

Welcome back to my Workflow Series! This month on the blog I’m talking about ways to systematize different aspects of your business in order to be more efficient. Last time I wrote about How to Save Valuable Time Every Single Day so if you missed that post, make sure you check it out! Today I’m going to focus […]

It’s no secret that this blog has played a vital role in how we market our work and over the last year, I’ve been working with a lot of photographers to help them build a blog that will attract their ideal client. It was back in 2013 when I discovered how important blogging is to driving traffic […]
