Stopping Time. Last week I celebrated another year around the sun and it reminded me just how incredibly fast the years go by. In 2020, my focus is on slowing down. At the heart, it means learning to live more in the moment and appreciate where I'm at instead of thinking about the never ending to do list, unanswered emails, dirty laundry, etc (I could go on forever). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In practice, it means physically saying "no," both personally and professionally. So while we absolutely love designing, executing and photographing our Styled Sets, we will be forgoing the Spring Styled Sessions this year and instead, focusing on something (VERY) special for the month of May with our "Moms who Inspire" series. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Of course, I'll still be photographing this spring as the buds pop out and everything turns green! Our regular spring sessions do usually fully book up so please reach out in the next few weeks if you are interested in getting on our calendar for March or April. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

January 1st is probably my favorite day of the year. I've always loved a fresh start; clean slate; new beginning. Call it what you want, but it's that chance to reflect and look ahead at endless possibilities that excites me like no other. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This year, however, I'm struggling. Plain and simple, I'm exhausted. Which is why, when someone asked me what my word (or in my case, motto) for the year was going to be, it came to me pretty quickly: SLOW DOWN. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As the next few weeks unravel, I'll dive more into what this means for me, and for my business. As most entrepenuaers will tell you, if you're not careful, your business can start to drive you instead of you driving it. So, as a new decade begins, I'm excited to refocus my energies and start fresh. I look forward to continuing to create for my clients while ALSO finding a way to fulfill that artist that lives inside me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a good friend of mine always says, "It's a NEWWWWW day!" And so, I say to you, whatever your word, motto, goal or mantra is for this year, today's the day. GO GET IT.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

On this #GivingTuesday, I'm thankful for all the people who helped me to bring this beautiful girl into the world. I just made our annual donation of 1% of our Studio sales to @resolveorg . I know the holiday season is a time when everyone opens their hearts and wallets, but I can truly say that without this organization, I'm not sure I would have been able to navigate the emotional rollercoaster that infertility brings. They helped me find my support group, who helped me find my doctor, who told me about natural cycle IVF, which finally worked for us and resulted in this spunky, big-hearted and smiley girl who's my everything.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Since sharing my infertility story, I've had so many friends, clients and even strangers reach out to share their story back in return. It makes me feel that much more committed to supporting @resolveorg . And so, I can't wait to see what 2020 brings as the Studio will continue its dedication and commitment of sharing a piece of our success with all those on our their own journey to building their family.

In a world that moves incredible fast, there’s nothing quite like slowing down to savor the littlest, yet most meaningful things in life.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After a CRAZY couple of weeks, we are so looking forward to a few days off to celebrate and count our blessings with family and friends.

This is hands down the most popular time of year for family portraits - and the most stressful - so we thought we'd take a hot minute to share one of our favorite tips for getting amazing family portraits!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Are you ready?!!?? Here it is:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
EMBRACE THE IMPERFECTION.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Look beyond the traditional definition of a “good” family portrait where everyone is neatly arranged, eyes to the camera lens with forced smiles. Honor this season in your family’s life, even if that means your toddler is screaming his head off or your daughter is making her cheesy smile. This is your family. Celebrate them for their true personalities!

Welcome to the world Trey & Mackenzie! Oh how we love photographing twins, especially when they are as sweet and sleepy as these two were. Added bonus, they have such a loving family to welcome them into the world. Mom, Dad, sister Sadie, and both sets of grandparents...we had a full house for this session!

Our holiday sessions have come to an end and we cannot get over how AMAZING all of our families were! So much energy, so many beautiful outfits (thank you for paying attention to our Style Guide!) and so many magical images captured. We can't wait to share more images as the holiday season kicks into high gear! LOTS of editing and holiday card designing in our future and we'll be sure to share some of the fun along the way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We're heading into the last weekend of our holiday styled sessions! It truly has flown by. We’ve already had a ton of fun with these sessions and have loved seeing all of the familiar faces and how much the kiddos have grown from last year. We can’t wait to see what this weekend has in store. Lots of winter and holiday magic to share in the upcoming weeks as we all start getting into the holiday spirit!

Behind every successful entrepreneur is someone else. Someone who in their own way, makes you better and allows you to thrive at what you love. For me, it's this man. Every late night I've had to work, every weekend I've been gone, every joy I've had and every tear I've cried because of my business is possible because of him.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To the partner by my side, the man in the shadows who never gets enough credit, Happy Birthday!!! I love you babe.

We secretly never want you to grow up....
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Having the talented @lisablumephotography and Miss Charlie in front of my lens was such an treat AND so much fun. You can't tell in this b&w image, but Charlie has red hair just like momma! She was the sweetest for her 6 month session.

One, two, three! In the blink of an eye, I've had the pleasure of seeing this family grow from a trio of three to a team of five over the last couple of years. First came Cooper, then little Lucas came along, and now they have baby girl Jane to complete the pack. We absolutely love seeing our families grow and can not believe how quickly life flies by. @kristenalovely

What makes our Holiday Styled Sessions different from "minis?" Handcrafted, archival prints and products.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Raise your hand if you've had a family portrait taken, received the digital images, walked away with all these grand ideas for wall displays and albums you were going to DIY and then.....fast forward 5 years and you're scratching your head wondering what drawer you put that archaic CD in and will it still work if and when you can find a computer that even still takes CDs! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We understand. You love your family and any images of them are precious. But it's time to be realistic. Are you going to print 20 images to put on display in your home? Do you even have the time to do that? If you are the magical unicorn that actually prints out photos, our hats are off to you! For majority of our clients, they are juggling so many things, figuring out how, where and what to display from their portrait session is at the bottom of their never ending to-do list.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our Holiday Styled Session Collections combine the best of both worlds, giving you professionally printed product and digital images. From holiday cards to gift prints and framing to our brand new Winter Tales Album, you can walk away from your holiday portrait session knowing that you have:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
*portraits to enjoy/display in your home⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
*holiday cards checked off your list⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
*gifts for the grandparents and finally....⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
*all the memories of this season safely on your computer.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
