Every single workshop I do a recap post…and every single workshop leaves me without the right words to adequately summarize it. This set of 16 attendees from across the country (and Canada!!!) blew me away with their talent and their desire to learn. They were beautiful, smart, excited, outgoing and SO much fun to spend two […]

This post is definitely bittersweet to be writing…but I feel so much peace about this decision. This may come as a surprise to quite a few of you…but bear with me here Earlier this year, I made the decision to end my lease at my storefront studio space in downtown Fredericksburg. After seeking advice from […]

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…engagement season is in full swing and it’s my FAVORITE time of year for that reason Especially when it includes breathtaking destination engagement sessions like Kelley and Perry’s!!

I wanted to build a community of women, photographers and business […]

As business owners who use Instagram as a major tool for marketing in our business, something that we have to utilize strategically is the link that we share in our Instagram bios. What is the most important thing for our clients to see there? Our website? Our blog? A special current offer? It’s always SO […]

You may have seen last week that I was a little bit MIA on social media…because I was on the Taylor Family spring break vacay!!! My younger siblings, Nathan and Abby, had the week off of school for spring break, so we planned our first family vacation in YEARS. We took a road trip in […]
