Online bullying..... you know it comes in so many different forms. From a threatening message, to a passive aggressive comment, or whatever it might be.... it is sad. My platform might be small in the eyes of some.... but to the eyes of a few I make a difference. And if that means taking a stand for grown women who act unkindly then I'm here, and I'm here loud and clear. Bring it. Because my wolfpack is filled with kindness and support and living community over competition, we LIVE it. Now excuse me while I go comment something nice and supportive for at least 10 other people right now. I challenge anyone reading this to do the same....I guess it is my way of not getting outraged when I see this stuff. 💛 . . PS: Just because I want to GIVE today...

But only if you 100% agree with this core value to stand up against bullying. 💛
When I shared this image on IG last fall I remember feeling anxious.... The thoughts in my head: do the colors look ok? Will everyone know that I push my camera to its limits when its comes to low light? I loved the image, but we are always our own worst critic.... We pick everything apart and hold our breath when images go public. crazy right... we seem so confident in our daily lives, but this is a constant thing. WELL instagram viewers told me a different story and this image is still my #1 ranking EHP photograph. Thank you for doing that. It gave me more fuel to be ok with the fact that I do things a little differently. That I can say out loud that I shot this image with NO FLASH and people still love it. I have always tested the limits with low light photography, and I understand OCF just fine.. and use it when needed. But when I feel confident in my camera and the lighting I love to do things a little different. Thank you for being my people! You can check out the blog and IG stories today to learn more about how I shoot low light exits! 🤗🤗🤗#elizabethhensonphotos
A moment when I related to Michael Scott in a major way.... 🤣🤣🤣. My life.
At the end of the day we all want the same thing. We all want to be HEARD. Having great business conversations actually starts with listening and asking questions. Some people are just waiting to be asked a question before they will be vulnerable and share. I want to continue this conversation.... check out my very imperfect and slightly vulnerable/awkward IG live today. . . I notice when you are not heard, and it is important to me that you get your time to shine. . . Our character is defined in how we treat people.... ALL people. Not just big names, but every person you encounter. We should all be a little more interested in the person next to us... it makes us better humans. 💛. . . If you agree tell me something I don’t know about you 😘. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Such a good weekend but I think I blinked and it was over 🤷♀️. Do any good shows come on Sunday nights? Typically it’s football in this house lol... and we are all caught up on This is Us! 💛
Happy Friday! If you are new around here I want to share a few things with you today. I'm Elizabeth. I have a problem of being a BIG dreamer. I have strong opinions when it comes to being a good human, but that certainly doesn't mean I'm perfect. Today I thought I would share a few scary dreams with you. A few I have not really been sure how to say out loud. . Dream 1: A friend recently asked me what I would be doing if my income was set and I had no financial worry.... I would be doing the same thing HOWEVER, I could hire the help I need to grow even more. My DREAM is to make enough money that I can bless a few stay at home moms who need an income. Just because I desire money does not mean that I want a fancy car or a big house. I want money because I want to do more good. . Dream 2: This one came about today. I want to get on a plane to Miami, like now. I want to go see my friend and I want to carry my camera to the scene in Florida and do something meaningful with my talent. We can't solely rely on the families of the victims to be part of the efforts to change this problem. 18 schools already in 2018. I certainly don't know the answers, but I know that if I could take images that could convey the emotion that we need to help make change, than thats what I want to do. . Dream 3: I want to stop obsessing with dream 1 so that I can be a better wife and mom. I'm a workaholic... a selfish one, who spends way too much time and money trying to accomplish dream #1. My husband is always quick to remind me that I shot my first wedding for free.... that the results are not easy. Thank goodness he gets me, but I certainly feel the guilt and pressure I put on myself daily. I do a lot of things right, but there are plenty I do wrong too. . Thank you for being here! I appreciate you reading my novel of a post, and now I'm gonna go look at flights for dream #2.... never hurts to look right? //photo by @sharonhundley // hair by @anywherebeautybyshae // make up @kristinemarieartistry
“When we present our authentic imperfect selves to the world”... it is THE hardest thing about Entrepreneurship. Thank you @amandahedgepethobx for always speaking Brene Browns words to me... some days I need them more than others, but I’m so damn grateful I met you at Bubbas so many years ago!!! 😭💛 . . Who has helped you be more authentic and imperfect ? Are you sharing the imperfect?
At the time Maddison was born Gracie our oldest always wanted daddy.... so Madds arrived and I swore she would be mine, I even told him to stay back lol. Well Madds is almost 2, and she’s OBSESSED with her daddy. Thank goodness Gracie demands all my attention now, so there’s no time to be jealous lol. I love the ebbs and flows of parenthood. All the funny stories within other stories. We both still lay in bed at night watching videos of them both. Two girls is pretty awesome, especially when they have the best girl Dad on the planet. 😍😍😍. Happy Valentines to my little family and yours. 😘😘😘. #hensonhomelife
One of my favorite things in the world is when my couples continue to hire me after their wedding day... 💛I LOVE seeing their families grow. Mason here is the same age as Gracie, and I love that Jessica and I have always that in common. 💛 . . Someone once said to me that being a shoot and share photographer was like having a one night stand with your clients..... I beg to differ. Just because we “shoot and share” photographers give out our images like candy, does NOT mean that we don't work with our clients over and over again. 💛 Seeing them again and again is one of my greatest joys!
Valentines Day is Wednesday! ❤️💕💘💗Who’s ready? Know what the best gift ever is? A spring photo session with your lover bird! Seriously who would be sad about that as a gift? Not me! 😍😍😍😘💃💃. #elizabethhensonphotos #valentinesgift
And most of all love of what we are doing....that’s my definition of success. To work hard for what we love, and what gives us purpose. 💛. If you could make a living doing anything in the world what would it be?
Casual, playful, beach front wedding.... don't mind if I do 💛💛. . 2017's summer weddings will be hard to beat... but I'm certainly ready for the warmer weather. . Formal wedding or laid back? what's your speed? Hummm If I had to pick a favorite... I’ll take the laid back, playful couples, with a few meaningful details, who can certainly throw down at their reception.... 🤩😎💃.
Studies show you should have at least five people that you can deep dive into business conversation with. Sometimes these relationships change and evolve and that is totally ok too. I have a list of ladies that I talk to daily, or that I know I can call anytime. FACT: I wouldn't be where I am today if it was not for them. ANOTHER FACT: I didn't meet them by chance. I met them because I invested in opportunities that brought me closer to like minded women. Heck to the Yes. . . Do you have a business besty or two?? Tag them below! And tell us how you met! . . 📷 by @sharonhundley
Hey You! Happy Friday! What are Fridays like for you? This year I'm attempting to take Fridays a little lighter... a little self care, and a little blocked time for educational things. I know it won't be perfect, but I try working M-Th extra hard to make it happen. . We are in week 4 of the first round of the 'Find your Five' Mastermind Accelerator. This is a 6 week intense mastermind program for my photog pals out there... If you have had some interest in a mastermind but never tried one you will LOVE this. Short commitment for fast results. I'm thrilled with how its going and the girls are crushing their goals and SHOWING UP! We have already had amazing guest experts like @amandahedgepethobx and @carrylovedesigns with more to come. Studies show you should have at least FIVE people that you can talk business with in your network. FIVE. Do you have five? The next round starts in March....and seats are already being claimed. You can learn more or register by clicking find your five link in my bio. . I believe in you, and I believe in the power of deep conversations with like minded women. I wouldn't be here with out my five 🐺. . #wolfpackcreatives #creativeslivehappy #fridayintroductions // 📷 by @sharonhundley // Make up by @dhaliaedwards
It’s totally cool with me if we color outside the lines. There’s no right or wrong way to grow a business.... I think we forget that way too often. Do what fills your heart and let the judgers judge... 😘💛
