May I Have Your Attention, Please...


This past week, while on the Bend [Trip], I had some time to think and discuss life, love and all it's possibilities with some wonderful women. Sometimes you don't realize something until you say it out loud. And I realized something BIG! I've felt frustrated with myself recently. As an artist, as a photographer and as a person. I couldn't figure out where or why I had these feelings, I mean, I have the best job in the world, right?

Then, I said it. I'm a people pleaser. I love to make people happy. And I know that my images make my client's dreams come true. However, the artist within me needs something more. I need to remember to make myself happy with my images to keep things fresh and creative. I need to make myself happy before I can continue to make others happy.

Thus, I have decided to take my blog back! I will continue to post images from weddings and all our other shenanigans,  but instead of posting images that I know my clients, magazine editors, etc will like, I am going to post the images that I personally LOVE!

Bend [Trip] Update!

Words can not express how lucky I feel. And for so many reasons.

This trip has been SO much fun, but more importantly, I feel like I have walked away with some true friends for life. I know, I know, I'm getting all sappy on you, but seriously. I have had a blast with these women. Whether we are going on adventures, taking crazy photos, or having deep conversations, we have been having the best week ever.

I feel refreshed. Not necessarily in a photography/art/business sense, but in life in general.

Sometimes when you run your own business, you can feel burned out. I currently feel ready to take on the world!

Make sure to check out our fabulously hilarious adventures!!!

And a THANK YOU to Lauren Clark for these first 2 photos!
