#happyvalentinesday to my sweet hubby who drove me up to #Waco from #sanantonio so thankful to be able to spend another year with you! Extra thankful we are on vacation and not in a hospital this year! Love you Mr. Weisz
We are heading to #Waco I’m so excited hubs and I are dusting off our snow boots and flying south to warmer weather this week. We will be flying into #sanantonio before driving up to Waco to check out #magnoliamarket on the 14th. Then we are heading back to San Antonio for the rest of the trip. What do you suggest we check out while we are in both towns?
A few weeks ago I had the honor of sitting down with @shaycochrane owner of @socialsquares and @scstockshop to chat a little about work-life balance. Shay was so open and honest about what it has looked like for her and her family to balance being a mom and growing a business. I found myself constantly nodding my head in agreement as Shay talked about the struggles she has faced with aligning her heart and her head. I know that while my heart will always want to be a mom, sometimes my head will start to want to spend more time at work where it's easier to receive more recognition for the things I'm doing. I was so glad to hear I wasn't alone in feeling this, and that someone I personally look up to feels the same way! Shay also shared what has worked for her over the years as she kickstarted the styled stock industry with the SC Stockshop, the first styled stock shop of it's kind back in 2014. After Shay felt her passion and creativity beginning to wane after building a successful wedding and portrait photography business in the 8 years prior. In 2013, a light bulb moment in Homegoods convinced her to make the almost overnight decision to jump head first into the unknown world of commercial styling and product photography and she has never looked back. Her commercial clients span the globe (brands like @Sugarfina, Pure Fiji, Truffle bags and @Simplified Planner to name a few) Now female entrepreneurs everywhere use her styled stock imagery membership Social Squares to build their brand's visual presence online. She has been married for 13 years to her best friend and fitting counterpart @thegrahamcochrane and together they have two little girls and call sunny Tampa, Florida their home.
This is my dad and my little sister on her wedding day! SWIPE to see my dads face when he saw @smdean69 for the first time on her wedding day! #worthit #weiszbrides #weiszbride
It was definitely a messy bun gettin things done kinda day in the office. 2020 is certainly a year of growth and new possibilities for me and my business. #wisephotographerpodcast has been such a fun project to work on, and I’m so excited about all the interview I have coming up. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to build this community and have conversations about what it’s like to step into the role of a entrepreneur while balancing motherhood. We have to be wise in the decision we make and the time we invest as we raise little ones and grow our businesses. I’d love to hear who you would like to have as a guest on the show!? Any topics you would like to learn more about? Let me know in the comments!!
We took off for Bismarck this weekend for some family time. Originally it was just going to be me and hubs going to a concert. But the concert got canceled so we brought the kids and made a quick little getaway out of it. Kids went swimming while I tried not to panic too much watching our brave little dude push the boundaries of the kiddie swimming pool. We slept in today before grabbing brunch on our way out of town. Watching my Justin and Sky color and play the games on the back of the kids menus always makes my heart skip a beat. I can’t believe just how grown up she is now! #wheredidthetimego Double tap if your kids are growing up too fast too!
Do you have a green thumb? I have some how turned into the crazy plant lady with plants all over the house. And there’s something so wonderful about knowing how to make things grow. Consistently, since I first started to put down roots in this business 7 years ago, the soil, water, and sunshine that have brought me to where I am are my husband, my friends in the industry, and a whole lot of research. When I stay nourished by these three things, I inevitably root more deeply and reach further skyward. What elements keep you growing?
