My last IG post was us in Mammoth in the summer🤷🏻♀️ so here is us in Mammoth in the fall. 🍂🍁 😂
Mini Vacation in Mammoth for the 4th! 🇺🇸
I recently started a series on my blog where I share my personal goals for 2019 and monthly progress on how I am working towards those goals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My May progress and June goals are up on the blog this morning. 🎉💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I even included some more photos from the droning with whales and dolphins workshop in the post! 🐬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #photoeditor #privatephotoeditor #boutiquephotoeditor #cultivatewhatmatters #laracasey #emilyley #simplifiedlife #simplifiedplanner #powersheets #productivityplanner #intentionalliving #goalplanning #purposefulplanner #goalsetting #goalsetting2019 #goalsetter

Grief is a complex emotion that shows up in various ways as we move forward in life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometimes grief looks like crying in the shower where no one can see. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometimes grief looks like choking back tears during worship at church. (and of course it's always the song that is right before meet and greet...of course.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I still experience those emotions of sadness in grief. Most of the time....I experience joy in grief. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I laugh when swapping stories of my dad's life. I talk about him in present tense by accident. I bring him up naturally in conversation. I remember him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I think what is hard is when people don't know what to say when tragedy happens, like my dads death. So they choose to ignore and move on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If I had to give the world advice on how to deal with death and grief... don't pretend like they didn't exist. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For me, my dad helped shaped the person I am today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I spent 16 years of my life with him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I WANT to remember those years. The good stuff. The not so Instagram worthy stuff. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Death is hard, and it is not fun or natural to want to talk about it if you haven't experienced it. But we can't ignore those who are gone and who are no longer with us like they didn't have an impact on our lives. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let's start talking, remembering, acknowledging the hard stuff that has happened.
THE WEBSITE IS LIVEEE!!! 🎉💕😭😍🍾⠀ ⠀⠀ It's launch day today and it is giving me all the feels!! ⠀ ⠀ I feel like I spilled my heart all over this site with pieces of my story on every page. ⠀ 😭I have SIX done-for-you templates and education classes available on the new site specifically designed and created for private editors. ⠀ ⠀ There are products like import and export training videos for your clients, my signature shuttle pro starter pack, a client welcome magazine template, and more 💕 ⠀ ⠀ I have several favorite parts so I don't know if I could choose one...but I really love the my top eight section on the about page. I think there are some fun facts tucked away in there. ⠀ ⠀ This three month project has been such a labor of love not only for me but from some really amazing people too. ⠀ Like @kayladeanwrites and assisting me in putting my thoughts and feelings into words. My amazing assistant @clklutz for helping me get everything as perfect as possible for today. @thecreativespring for getting a plan in place for me to execute all the products in the shop. @meganmartincreative for the base template design of my website. @jeremy_neiditch for making sure I ate something and staying up with me to finishing testing the site! It's crazy how many people were involved in this project and I couldn't be more grateful for each and every one of them! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ If you visited the site? What was your favorite part??? I'd love to hear your thoughts below!
Yesterday I spent like 13 hours on my website. 😅😅 Honestly it felt like when I was a kid playing SIMS on the computer. I sat down to play in the morning then looked up and it was like 7pm at night. OOPS! Anyone else do that? Designing my website has honestly felt like my soul lighting on fire. 🔥🔥🔥 It has reminded me how much I LOVE creating. ______ Yesterday was a backend - working on my business - kind of day, and today is a editing day. Also, today I pledge to eat normal meals, unlike yesterday, and go to CycleBar tonight for a hiphop happy hour class. (MY FAV of the week!!! (I'm comin' for you @_melwolfie!) . . . . #photoeditor #privatephotoeditor #boutiquephotoeditor #cultivatewhatmatters #simplifiedlife #simplifiedplanner #powersheets #editsource #goaldiggerpodcast #showit #showitunited #showitdesigner
Success or failure doesn't define who you are. Money does not lead to happiness. Christ, His will, His purpose, above all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've been working with a copywriter for my new website, and we have been working on the core values part of my brand. What do I stand for and teach? What are the principles that make my brand different? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Christ above all. Value and purpose over success or failure. Money doesn't lead to ultimate happiness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These are things that I can talk about for hours. Not because I have mastered them, but because these are the refining areas in my life that the Lord is working on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The temptation to believe the lies that my value and worth are defined by my success or failure in this industry. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That I need to work harder so that I can provide more money because if I had more money than I could fill my life with the desires of my heart. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But to fight off these temptations means I must put Christ above all. Pursue Christlikeness daily. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The next few weeks as I begin to unveil bits and pieces of the brand refresh, I hope you will find and see your value and purpose. That your identity is not rooted in your success or failure. That 6 figures is not the definition of success. That rooting yourself in the truth of God's word, is where he will reveal His calling for you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ New website and brand launches Friday, April 19th! 🎉🎉🎉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #photoeditor #privatephotoeditor #boutiquephotoeditor #creativeatheart #herestothecreatives #calledtobecreative #creativepreneur #risingtidesociety #editsource #kjconsistencycourse #comunityovercompetition #goaldiggerpodcast #showit #showitter
Comparison struggle on this platform is REALLLL. I’ve been sick for 3 days now and I’ve spent an embarrassing time on Instagram those three days. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Mainly because I’m bored if we are being honest.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ As I scroll though (or swipe through stories) I struggle with the thoughts of I’m not good enough. I feel as though my business is too much apart of me. That I should be less attached to it. That I wish I could show up do the work then shut the door and live my life. A life that isn’t thinking about work what feels like all the time.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Typing this literally makes me sick to my stomach with anxiety because it brings up all these doubts. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Maybe it’s just because I’m sick and feeling all my feelings right now. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Honestly I wish I had something encouraging to wrap this up in a pretty bow but I don’t really. 🤷🏻♀️ so I’m just gonna sign off IG for the day hoping that will help.
Big waves are happening in 2019! ✨ First part of this year is overhauling my website and creating 7 new products all while on boarding my new team member who I can’t wait for you to meet! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve always been a Squarespace advocate. It’s the best website platform for being on a budget, being able to manage your website yourself, all while looking incredibly professional. However as your business grows and you become more hands off in certain areas of your business sometimes you upgrade!! Which is why I’m moving over to @showit! 🎉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My entire business has always been about serving my photographers but this year I’m pivoting to serve photo editors! With that is coming SEVEN products designed to help you in all areas of your business!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So over the next month, I’ll be over here behind my computer putting together templates and recording masterclasses! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you are wanting to learn about something specific leave it in the comments below! I’ll share if that’s something in the product que 😊️ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #photoeditor #privatephotoeditor #boutiquephotoeditor #editsource #showit #outsourcing #outsourceyourediting #outsourceediting #creativeatheart #showiteer
