If you’re ever asked to photograph @taylorraephoto just say yes! Such a fun session with such a beautiful mama to be!
It's #introductionfriday but today I want to let some of my clients do the talking! Feedback is a huge part of any creative career, and I thoroughly enjoy hearing from all my clients after a shoot. My most recent brand session was a dream come true, and I cannot thank @jessicarourke enough for her kind words... I knew that Josie was the right photographer for my small business because while I needed headshots I wanted some action shots of me doing the things I do, in the places I typically work. With being a service oriented business, and not having a product I wanted to tell a story of my process via images. Josie was enthusiastic, creative and fun through the entire shoot. I would highly recommend her to any business looking to tell their story through images! . . Link in bio for more on my #brandsessions and testimonials!
It never fails. Every year around October I get the travel bug. Everything inside me wants to bolt somewhere simple and experience filled. I think I’ve narrowed it down. Thanks to the good ole #enneagram I’m very aware that I’m as Seven as seven can get. October is ALWAYS my busiest month of the year. They’re all wonderful things and I’m thankful for every opportunity and feeling especially grateful this year that work is fun again. But after the fun and excitement of planning and watching things come together comes a whole lotta work on the back end. Soooo after this especially unique October (more one that later) don’t be surprised if I start posting about plane tickets and far off places. Consider yourself warned. Anyone else way more aware of your quirks after taking the enneagram test??? What’s your number??
Being your own boss sometimes feels like being your own employee too. Its all about the freedom, the challenges, and hard work! I have been my own boss for 5 years, and every minute has taught me something about myself, my craft, and my life. I love supporting women in their journey as artists and entrepreneurs and creating inspiring visual content that speaks to their mission and business. I have been inspired by so many powerful women in so many fields of business, so today, on #bossesday, I raise my glass to all the boss women out there making it work for themselves and others! 📸 @abbymurphyphoto Artwork @harrisonblackfordart
Congrats to @ro_sham_beaux on the launch of their newest line @cocograychs. So many beautiful colors, textures, and fabrics!!!!
Still flying high after all the excitement last week! Feeling fired up and inspired for a full week of shooting ahead. Can’t wait to work with you @jordanmikalcreative. @rmwl let’s get you married!! What's motivating you this Monday?
#TGIF !! Did you have a busy week too? On Fridays, I like to reflect on my week and celebrate the transition into the weekend! Sometimes this means grabbing a drink with friends or curling up at home with family and stand up comedy, or just some alone time! How do you plan to #celebrate this Friday?
Five years ago I had a bucket list for my business. There were venues, and planners, and florists I knew I just had to work with. Honestly things felt a little incomplete when I decided to call it quits in that area of my business. My last wedding ever is next weekend with one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever met. But back to that list. It kept happening again and again. One of my bucket list items would be checked off, but always working for someone else. And that was amazing, but it just wasn’t the same. Today I finally shot with my bucket list planner in one of my bucket list venues. Except this time it wasn’t a wedding. Today I was able to use my love of imagery to help a fellow business owner grow their business. I know you’ve got big goals and dreams for your business. And that’s freaking awesome friend, I hope you reach all of them. But... can I encourage you a little. Can I ask you to maybe unclench your fist just long enough to consider there might be something even better? Let that dream breathe just long enough to realize that maybe it won’t happen the way you thought. It might just be even better and more life giving than you ever hoped! Cheers to big dreams and trusting your gut when it urges you to loosen your grip on them just enough for them to come to life. @jessicarourke you are such a gem, today was awesome, and I’m so glad to know you! Thank you thank you thank you!! 💕
I had the best time shooting with @muselake for @ro_sham_beaux last week and I can’t even wait for the launch of Coco and Gray. We are about to add so much color to our home and I’m 💯 here for it.
We bumped up our family photos a bit this year when we found out when Ben would be heading to basic. Thankfully @hannahalyssa had another spot open for us and I hope she likes us... because we will be back next year. Maybe a little later so our fall clothes don’t roast us again. Somehow she managed to get our squirmy Mav to cooperate. I couldn’t be more thrilled and my heart is so full of gratitude and love for these boys. I may or may not be planning another gallery wall with only these photos. Just sayin’. Hannah, thank you so much 💕
