But I would walk 500 miles And I would walk 500 more... 👟 Walking thousands of steps over here in Italy to see all the sights! Can we just talk about how much walking there is in Europe?!?! I’m not sayin, I’m just sayin... Americans and our cars are a little lazy... 🚗 Alas, I’m pretty sure I figured out why no Italian is overweight. It’s the WALKING! With all this pasta and pizza they eat, I keep thinking to myself that surely someone has to be. But, nope! Not so. They just walk everywhere and use tons of public transportation. Oh and, all their ingredients are fresh and lean with much small portion sizes and no cream/sugar/fattening. 🍝 It’s really amazing to see how others live. This is one of the many, many reasons I love traveling so much! You’ve gotta get out of your comfort zone and your own little personal (and often cushy) bubble to see the world from a different perspective and really feel super appreciative for what you have. 👌🏻 I’m curious, what’s your favorite part of traveling?!
Let’s play a little game of can you guess where this was taken?!... ✨ Hint: I’m still in 🇮🇹 !
Who here has watched Under The Tuscan Sun?! 🙋🏼♀️ If you’ve been following along on Insta stories, you know I’ve been overseas for the past week. I haven’t actually posted anything on my feed because I’ve really been just trying to enjoy the moments. My best friend from college, Bethany, and I have been traveling Italy together the past 6 days on a mini girls trip. She lives here and married an Italian (it’s like a romantic novel story but I’ll save that story for later), and I’ve been wanting to get over here to see them for some time. Luckily, the timing finally worked out and I was able to come to see her first and then be able to tour around with Marko and his sister, Ellie, for their FIRST time abroad (they just got here yesterday)! 😊 Bethany and I started out with an amazing weekend in Tuscany! It’s been my dream for YEARS to do wine tasting in Italy! I went to this exact spot in Chianti and completely fell in love. We made it a true authentic experience and stayed at an agriturismo apartment where the owner had a wine cellar from 1000AD and his own single hector vineyard that produced 1300 bottles of wine. And... woke up to this view! Ahhhh! Heaven! Then we added in more wine tastings, went to a castle, toured Volterra, drove the winding roads, and dined on some yummy pastas! 🍷 Now, I want to come back to the movie for a second. I had never seen it until Bethany and I sat down in her La Spezia apartment two days ago and turned on Netflix. It’s such a good story of overcoming obstacles when life hits you in the face. I know I showcase mostly all the good here on social media. But, I want to be very transparent and say that the past few weeks have not been so. I had a few big life hiccups that set me back, had me crying for hours, and unsure if I even wanted to jump on a plane. But, as the saying goes, when life brings you lemons, you betta make lemonade! I truly hope that for all of you, too! 🍋 Salute my friends!

They’ll just cross their fingers that no client drama will ensue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That’s a mistake. 😐⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But that’s not you. You’re ready to take things into your own hands, get legit contracts that will serve you for the rest of your career, and gain back a sense of confidence and peace-of-mind in your business. 🤩 All this is possible...you just need those contracts at your fingertips. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And they’re all right inside The Legal Paige Contract Catalog. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Contract Catalog includes all of my template contracts and clauses (and all future contracts I create will be added into it too)! ▶️ It has 30+ contracts and 50+ clauses in an online portal for you to access at any time. ▶️ Included are Word documents and PDFs to download for each contract ▶️ You’ll also receive a screenflow of me going through contracts and clauses so you know exactly how to use them in less than 10 minutes! ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You only have until midnight tonight to make your choice.

Its PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE season!!! ☕️🍂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know, I know, fall isn't *officially* here yet. But you better believe I live on some pumpkin spice the next 2 months. 🍁⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Speaking of fall... SO many photographers host mini sessions (including me)! Its a great time for your clients to get an abbreviated session experience at a discounted rate. 💸⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But... here's the thing that's usually missing with almost every sign up I see: A CONTRACT. ⚖️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mini session contracts are different. They have different language in them, they need to be available for people to read and agree to when they sign up for a time slot online, and they need to ensure that those mini sessions are non-refundable and non-transferable. 👌🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ...and now you're stuck at the point of implementation and actually sitting down to review your contract. 🤦🏽♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That’s normal. Totally okay. You’re not the only one. 🤷♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Which is why I wanted to make sure I had something ready to go for you so that you didn’t have to feel so overwhelmed. 🙌🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’d like to formally invite you to The Contract Catalog! In my online portal, you’ll get all the contracts you’ll ever need for your growing photography business. Yup, that’s right, it includes a Mini Session Contract, A Regular Family Session Contract, Print Release Form, Testimonial Release…. AND 30+ MORE CONTRACTS! 😄⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Oh, and 50+ template clauses! 💪🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 80+ documents for you to use for your business. In one place. At a fraction of the cost of what they are worth if you bought them individually. (Unless you’d like to buy them all individually...which would run you around $15k). 😉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Contract Catalog includes all of my template contracts and clauses (and all future contracts I create will be added into it too)! Included are Word documents and PDFs to download for each contract and clause. You’ll also receive a screenflow of me going through contracts and clauses so you know exactly how to use them in less than 10 minutes! 👊🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Get in now before the doors close on Friday! All the info is in my link in bio!
YOUR FRIEND IS NOT AN ATTORNEY! (*Unless you’re my friend, which you ALL are!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What I really mean is there’s a lot of well-intentioned contract advice floating around out there (mostly from people in FB groups who are NOT licensed attorneys which makes this attorney very unhappy, but i’ll save that rant for another day). Honestly? You don’t know what is *actually* needed in your client contracts (let alone, if you have the TIME and ABILITY to write it out so its legitimate and will hold up in court). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You’re left with a sinking feeling that each new client may potentially turn into the wicked witch you’ve been fearing... and sue you because your contract isn’t valid or you don’t have the necessary clauses that’ll cover your butt. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You NEED to get your contracts legally legit ASAP. Otherwise, you’re headed down a path towards sticky situations and potential lawsuits. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Luckily for you, I have an easy button! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have lawyer-drafted contracts that cover your behind! AND I’m talking every. single. contract. you’d ever need for your growing business in one place!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ YIPPEE!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You’ll finally have that much-needed STRONG and LEGITIMATE legal foundation for your business that allows you to sleep in peace at night. No more stress over contracts - everything would be perfectly in place. 🙌🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My new Contract Catalog is jam packed with 30+ contracts and 50+ individual contract clauses for you to start using instantly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Like right NOW. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m ready to give you the key to contract success right now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The only question is...Are you ready? 🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Be the successful boss I know you are and click on my link in bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your business, your finances, and your future emotional distress will thank you later! 💸👌🏻😉
