Too many ideas, so little time.
Sound like you?
Oh, girl, me too.
I’ve got so many ideas in my head it feels like 759352 tabs are always open.
This means staying productive when my mind is constantly moving can be a challenge!
I’ve learned what works (and what doesn’t) when it comes to staying productive, focused & on task … and today I’m sharing those tips with you, too!
One thing that boggles my mind is how my brides spend hundreds, often thousands of dollars on their stunning wedding gown, only for the bridal salon to deliver on a plastic hanger. The same cheap, clear hangers you see polos and button-ups hanging on at a department store. It makes no sense to me! With every step of my couples’ experience with me, I try my best to make sure what I’m delivering isn’t cheapened or lessened by how I deliver it, so the whole plastic hanger thing just confuses me!
Sharon is such a gem and I just love her sweet family! We had a blast hanging out at Panoche Creek and I was overjoyed with all of the cuteness I got to capture. The soft blush and gray color palette, the AMAZING hair (literally, ALL of them have amazing hair!) and the way that these kiddos look at their mom and dad are just a few of the lovely things about this great family. This session left me feeling all kinds of happy and excited for the fall season that we are now in the midst of! Can’t wait to see which photo they chose for their family Christmas card!
I’ve been on Instagram for as long as I can remember… long before I ever had a business. Instagram has always been a love, but I never really understood it until I did start my own business and the power of marketing myself online. It took me awhile to get the hang of it, which included some serious trial and error with how I crop images for my feed, what I post, and HOW I post! I’m still trying new things here and there, but I have learned a system that works for growing my audience and also finding the balance of not obsessing over my phone.
My inbox may or may not be my worst nightmare.
It tends to get a little bit unorganized, all kinds of crazy & that much harder to reach 0! I learned early on that if I let the emails pile up, it’s that much harder to knock ’em down!
My biggest hurdle with my inbox is that it takes me time and my time is valuable! When we own our own business, we need to be effective and efficient with the little bit of time we do have … we also need to create consistency throughout all forms of communication with our clients (and potential clients!)
Oh goodness! I have been asked this so much in the last yerar, and it is a HARD ONE to answer! When I was working 40 hours/week and growing, I did what I had to do. I didn’t blink. I didn’t think twice. I jumped in and just started DOING. If that meant creating timelines at midnight, writing blog posts on my lunch break and taking personal days for weddings, I was going to do it without hesitation. I JUST DID IT.
I’m a wife and momma on the daily and bouquets of flowers from Trader Joes are my love language. I’m passionate about joyful marriages, encouraging words and chasing your dreams. The only thing I love more than photographing weddings is education and encouraging creative entrepreneurs! I nerd out about marketing, personality types and making digital images look like film! Joy, grace and a lot of coffee! If you one thing from me, I want it to be this: you are so loved!
