Okay, ready to cringe with me? I’m taking a hard look at some of the biggest mistakes I made nearly 10 years ago when I was hired to shoot my very first wedding. Let’s get right to it, when I opened the email and read that someone was actually inquiring about their upcoming wedding, I […]

What if I told you that I strongly disagree with a piece of advice that a professor once gave me? A piece of business advice from a business professor. Someone who is very well trained and educated at the doctoral level in business? What if I told you that this person is my dad? You […]

I will be the first to say that the fear of competition can be debilitating, especially when we’re just starting out. We’ve hatched this baby business, spent a lot of time, effort, tears and probably money just get to the point of opening our doors, or, officially publishing our Facebook business page. Naturally, we want […]

“You can’t always be everyone’s cup of tea” – We’ve all heard this before, right? We’ve probably heard it when our mom was consoling us when we weren’t invited to get ready for a dance with a certain group of girls, or we’ve heard this from our girlfriends when we’re complaining about that passive aggressive […]

According to Wikipedia: Impostor syndrome (also known as impostor phenomenon, impostorism, fraud syndrome or the impostor experience) is a psychological pattern in which an individual doubts their skills, talents or accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a “fraud”.

We are in the midst of the crazy in our 8th wedding season, and I thought it would be the perfect time to share some of my never-before-shared, best-kept secrets, advice and mindset shifts, when it comes to kicking ass at wedding photography. Most of these lessons I’ve either learned the hard way or wished […]

I’ve shared about my camera equipment and gear before, but now I want to share some of my all-time favorite and must-have things, any and all ladies in business (or not) probably need in their lives. These products have seriously helped me and my workflow, and I’m hoping maybe some of these are a tax […]

For many small business owners, the off-season is quickly approaching. Right after the new year, it’s not uncommon to see business slow down for a bit. People are hibernating because they’re cold, or broke from the holidays (or both) and it can be easy to find yourself in a little bit of a rut. This […]

I knew it almost as soon as I woke up yesterday morning. I ran downstairs to let my dogs out, only to be met by a big ol’ pile of shit at the bottom of the stairs. Too late. The TurboShot machine was down at Dunkin’ (again) and my to-do list was nauseating. Lovely day […]
