I HAVE BEEN KEEPING THESE PHOTOS A SECRET FOR 2 YEARS. I HAVE BEEN WAITING + PRAYING FOR THIS DAY. AND THE LORD IS FAITHFUL. If you’re sitting here like WAIT WHAAAATTTTT... go take a peek first at @evierupp’s latest post and that will catch you up to speed. 😜 Then come back here cause what I have to say is gonna blow yo mind. These photos were taken 2 and a half years ago. These photos were taken on the VERY first day Evie + I met in real life. We’ve shared the story a ton how we met on the coast of Mendocino, CA & traded photo shoots. What we’ve always omitted was the fact that my photoshoot of her was a couple session with her + her then boyfriend Landon. 😱😉 That night was MAGIC. To this day it still is one of the most beautiful sunsets and breathtaking shoots I’ve shot. When this shoot happened I was still living in Kansas + I’d always DREAMED of getting portfolio like this. Plus that night marked the beginning of Evie and I’s friendship and future business partnership which all along was a total God thing. I was DANNNGGGG proud of these photos. I still think they’re some of my best photos I’ve ever taken. But back in 2017 Landon + Evie broke up. And I didn’t want to be that person that posted photos of a couple not together anymore just for my own sake. And especially as Evie became more connected with me and my brand with The Heart, everyone knew her as single as a pringle. Thus these photos sunk more in their grave. 🤣⚰️ BUT TODAY. TODAY CELEBRATION ABOUNDS. These two officially announced what we’ve all truly already known for the last few months. They are together once more + my best work IS REVIVED BACK FROM THE DEAD. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Okay but dramatics aside, I’m V happy for my best friends. 🥰 They’re so in love + it’s stupid cute. BUT BACK TO THE DRAMATICS 🎭.... if you want to see me be the most EXTRA I’ve literally ever been - and see my theatre background coming out REAL strong.. go watch my stories now. Grab some popcorn. You’re welcome. 🤣😜 #LandonandEvie #lindseyromanphotography
Annnndddd we’re on our way to the airport for our first solo trip just Elle and I. We’re headed to Florida for the week to meet up with Andrew who’s there for work. Eloise did incredible when we flew with Andrew to San Diego a few months ago, so here’s to hoping she’s just as much of an angel when it’s just me + her tonight. 🤣😜🙏🏼 Send lots of prayers our way. Florida here we come! P.S. I FEEL LIKE SHE GREW OVERNIGHT LIKE WHO IS THIS 13 YEAR OLD OKAAAYYYY. 🤣🤣🤣 #EloiseJoy
The Heart University online course is officially BACK!! 🔥🙌🏻💃🏼⚡️ Enrollment opened today and here’s why you need it: ⚡️If you’re consistently getting price shopped, have clients asking for discounts + not valuing what you have to offer. ⚡️ You’ve heard me blab about personal branding, but you’re sitting there thinking “I don’t have anything to offer that’s unique or engaging.” ⚡️ Your photos look stiff and awkward cause you don’t know how to direct your clients to make them feel fun and vulnerable. ⚡️ Pricing confuses the heck out of you so you just look at what other people are charging to price yourself cause how else would you do it? ⚡️ You’ve considered quitting multiple times because Instagram is the freakin worst + you can’t get the hang of it to save your life. Annyyyone resonate with any of that?? 🙋🏼♀️ Here’s the thing: I get tons of questions in my DM’s on a daily basis and they all have to deal with everything I just mentioned above. Almost every question I get asked regularly from photographers is answered IN DEPTH + waiting for you inside @theheartuniversity. If this is truly not the right season for you or you’re not the best fit for this course... cool. Keep doing yo thang. ✌🏼 But if what I described above is you to a T right now.... what are you waiting for? Are you waiting to feel more ready or qualified? You’ll never be “ready.” And you’re already qualified. Are you waiting to feel more secure with money before you buy? We have payment plans available + the first 6 months are interest free. Nervous that it’s such a big investment? Apply what you learn in the course and you WILL make that money back with ONE wedding booked. Guys I’m saying all of this because I KNOW this course can help you if you take it seriously and APPLY the lessons. But you gotta want it. You gotta be willing to take the leap. To choose great over good. To choose better over just okay. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to invest in yourself if you ever expect someone else to invest in your business. 👏🏼 If you have any questions about the course lemme hear them below! I got you!? ❤️❤️❤️ #TheHeartUniversity
Let’s talk about fear for a second. I think fear is the number one thing that holds people back from chasing their dreams. What if I fail? What if I embarrass myself? What if I find out I’m not cut out for this? What if people hate me? What if I hurt someone? What if I’m not qualified? What if, what if, what if. That phrase is born out of fear. It’s saturated and dripping with it. But honestly, there’s another what if question that scares me more than ANY of the above. What if I get to the end of my life and regret taking that leap of faith? Because here’s the deal. I think regret is a lot worse than fear. Fear is healthy and necessary in our life when put in its place, but it only has the power to incapacitate us if we let it. If you are sitting on a dream or a goal that God’s put in your heart, but you’re not taking that first step out of fear, I want you to do this: write down the absolute worse case scenario if you did the big scary thing you want to do. Write it down in detail. What is the worst that could happen? If you quit your corporate job to start your own business + it completely flops.... okay you move back in with your parents, get a new job + start over. Cool. You’re not dead. If you start that blog you’ve always wanted to + it makes zero dollars... okay cool you’re not any farther behind than before you started. You’re not dead. If you speak to a crowd for the first time + trip + fall... okay cool. Those people’s opinions of you don’t define your worth. Jesus does. And He thinks you’re awesome no matter how many times you embarrass yourself. Also you’re not dead. Oftentimes when we take the time to think about the worst case scenario of going after the thing that scares us... we realize even the worst outcome honestly isn’t that bad. We screw up. Everyone does. So get back up + try again. Your fears shouldn’t prevent you from stepping into who God made you to be. You are much stronger than you think. So stop letting fear dictate your life. Put him in his dang place + let God take you on the wildest adventure. You won’t regret it. 😉
Hey friend. 👋🏼 My name’s Lindsey + today I need to give you a lil pep talk. I started out as a wedding photographer + slowly have transitioned into being an entrepreneur and business educator. (Annnddd about to add podcaster to that list of titles HOLLA 🎙⚡️👏🏼). My business grew fast and everyone always asks me how. How did you do it? How did you hone in on your style? How are you confident enough to show up online? How did you get to making 6 figures in photography? How did you grow your instagram following? How how how? I could give you a billion strategies of how I logistically did certain things. (But let’s be real that’s what @theheartuniversity online course - opening next Tuesday Oct 15th!! - is for... 😜😜). But when I really think about what I have that got me where I am now.... it comes down to this: I know my worth in Jesus Christ and stand FIRM in that. I KNOW the creator of the universe made me unique. I KNOW He made me with a purpose. I KNOW I can be confident in that because people’s opinions of me don’t matter... God’s does. I KNOW He sure as heck didn’t make me to stand on the sidelines letting life pass by when He created me to STEP INTO THE GAME and be a world changer. And friend.... THAT kind of confidence doesn’t come overnight. But it does come from Jesus. Because when you have THAT kind of confidence, showing up for people isn’t scary. When you have that kind of confidence, selling something you KNOW will help people is VITAL. And that kind of confidence changes everything. So sure... I learned some savvy social media strategies. Sure, I LOVE marketing and branding and am preetttyyy dang good at it. But what I HAVE to contribute my life and journey to... is a whole lotta Jesus and the confidence, firm identity, and security He brings with knowing Him. Knowing God intimately and personally like that... it will change your life. And not just in your career. It will change your life in EVERY facet. All ya gotta do is first give Him the reigns and let Him take you on the wildest journey He created you for. Tag a fellow gal who needs a lil encouragement boost. Anyone feeling like 🤯🙌🏻😭??
