A New "Me"
This past summer my family and I took a trip to the beach. Growing up, my siblings and I spent most of our summers at this beach, so it was special to finally get to go with my little family. Our week was full of perfect memories. When I wasn’t chasing a one year old down the beach, or preventing handfuls of sand to enter places handfuls of sand shouldn’t go, I had a small window of “me” time. I took this time to refresh my mind, goals, dreams and how I wanted my business to grow and blossom. Watching our little one jump through the waves and prance down the beach was priceless (see proof below) and I knew I wanted to be there for the rest of the priceless moments to come. I’m so grateful for a career that allows me to contribute financially to our family AND create experiences for our family. I am grateful to have a front row seat to watching her grow up.
I’ve been running a thriving photography business for the past year and I love each and every person I’ve been privileged to photograph. I knew, however, that I had a gift for more. With my background in graphic design and my love of all things wedding, this past summer I ventured out into the world of branding & wedding stationary.
My website & blog went under a HUGE makeover and I’ll be launching a shop at the start of the New Year. I’m so excited to create beautiful things for small businesses, brides, moms and creatives.
Here is an overview of the new “me”:
Beautiful Brands for Creatives – I’ll be offering logo & website design services for creative professionals who need a fresh look & feel for their business. You can learn more about the process of how branding works here. At the start of the year, I’ll be announcing something HUGE for creatives that are ready to transform their business in 8 weeks. EIGHT WEEKS. Do you own a creative business? Have you been putting off a branding makeover? Sign up for our newsletter so you don’t miss out! I've been knee deep in glorious branding projects with the fantabulous Leah Remillet, creator of Go4ProPhotos.com.

Wedding Stationary & Styled Shoots – When I got married, I would joke with my husband that I could plan a wedding every year. I’m pretty sure he was not amused, but I was dead serious! I. Love. Weddings. In addition to capturing a wedding behind the lens, I’ll also be designing custom paper goods for couples.
Are you a photographer or wedding planner planning a styled shoot? I’m excited to be collaborating with photographers across the country to help make their dream styled shoot a reality. You can view a gorgeous styled shoot here that I collaborated on with the talented Sarah Sunstrom. I will be taking a limited amount of styled shoots per year, so get on the books now!
The Shop – And lastly, but definitely not least(ly?), in January, I’ll be opening up a pretty little shop with pretty little prints and products for your home and creative space. Think fresh, bold & colorful. I’ll leave you with that wonderful thought.

Moral of the story:
Thank you, God for creating spaces of rejuvenation & relaxation. I’m so thankful for the much needed, although short-lived, quiet time this summer at the beach and the focus & drive it gave me to expand my business goals. I’m refreshed and ready to go create the life I’ve dreamed of.
