Hugh and Sarah’s fall engagement photos are some of my favorites! They are such a sweet couple, I could photograph them all day long. I normally tell my couples that the first 5-10 minutes of the session are usually a little awkward, and that’s totally normal. We need a couple of minutes to warm up! […]

I’ve received a lot of questions recently about how I optimize my blog posts for SEO (Search Engine Optimization). The reason for that is because I basically built my entire photography business on blogging. I had no former marketing experience, yet I started booking up my calendar with weddings because of my online presence.   […]

Let’s chat about how to write successful photography blog posts! I know that as a photographer, writing is probably not your strongest suit. It’s not mine either! I’d much rather plan sessions and take pictures than write blog posts. But, I wholeheartedly believe that blogging consistently is what catapulted my business and allowed me to […]

I’ve been looking forward to sharing these East Lynn Farm wedding photos for a very long time! Micki and David booked me as their photographer back in 2019, so it’s been a long time coming.

I started my business after getting my first DSLR camera as a wedding gift — I knew next to nothing about photography, but I loved it.

In the beginning, I was afraid to tell anyone that I was starting a photography business. I thought they wouldn’t take me seriously, and might even make fun of me.

The thing is: now I talk to photographers all the time who are dealing with the same insecurities I had when I was just starting out — Turns out, ain’t nobody got time to be afraid of their dreams!

That’s why I teach the same systems and formulas that made me into the confident photographer I am today to photographers just like you.

my story might sound familiar...
