“Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.” ✨🌲🏔 - If I’m being honest, I really wasn’t going to share this photo because I am so uncomfortable in my own skin. And please know, I’m not sharing this piece of my heart for compliments. I’m sharing about this because if you’ve been struggling lately too, just know that there is joy in the journey. That weight loss doesn’t happen over night and it’s hard, harder than hell. I have been working out and changing my diet because I love my body, not because I hate it. I am becoming a better me every single day and I’m pretty thankful for that. Thanks to one of my best friends for encouraging me to leave this image up when I really wanted to delete it. 🖤
I feel a lot more motivated now that I get to use this mug on a daily basis. Just figured I’d show you all my new fav daily mantra. 😏✨🖤
Yesterday, I drove to Missoula for a mentoring session with one of my favorite photographers and I loved every single second of it! I truly believe in continuing education and to never stop learning. I’m pretty damn pumped to implement new things for this year! Thank you @jacilynm for everything, learning from you was the absolute best! 🖤✨ - Lorissa & Derrick, you two were a dream to photograph! Thank you so so much! 😍
I want to keep it real for a second because I sometimes feel like these little squares are just hyping up life when reality doesn't actually appear to be like that. Today, I was chatting with a sweet friend about how people online can look sooo perfect. Their Instagrams beautifully cohesive, they're posting in groups about how they're about to launch something new, or they just booked one more wedding while you're sitting there thinking am I not doing enough?. While this is something so frustrating, I understand why online we all want to fall into the perfect category but I want you all to know that my little life is very very far from perfect. I might be launching a beautiful new brand within the next week and a half but I have worked my ass off behind the scenes on this for months. I also received an email this morning that made me so sad, it made me want to wrap the person who sent it up in a big hug. The point is, I don't post enough about the hardships within owning a business and I think that to bring myself back to my transparent roots, I need to start showing you all here and there that it's not all fucking rainbows and ponies. It's sleepless nights, it's frustrated mornings, and sometimes it's crying over a cup of damn coffee while sitting at my desk. No matter where you are in your business, remember that you can do this and you are doing your own awesomely amazing things! You don't have to try to keep up with the others around you because I know you're killing it and you're making your mark on this industry but most importantly on the hearts of the ones you serve!! Don't let everyones perfect squares get you down because each one of us is fighting our own good fight with our business and even our hearts. So, if you feel overwhelmed or like you're not good enough...please take a step back from your phone and look around at all of the wonderful things you are doing. I am proud of you, just know that. These little squares don't define you, don't let them. ✨
This new brand has been such a labor of love, I'm talking 8 months of figuring out every little detail. I am someone who wants things to be perfect before I show the rest of the world what I've been working on but I understand that there comes a time where it needs to be put out there instead! This is just a small peek (a blurry little screen grab) into whats to come and I really am looking forward to revealing it all to you next Wednesday, March 21st, at 11 AM EST. I feel like this new brand perfectly represents where I am currently at in my life and I love how my photography has grown as I have been growing up and growing into a business woman. With my new brand launch there will be some pretty awesome giveaways, you won't want to miss those! All the fun is going to start next Monday! - A big thanks to @juliestory for being the most patient angel on the face of this Earth. You are truly a blessing in my life and I can't thank you enough for creating the most beautiful online home for me. #jessicahustedbrandlaunch - 🌲- A very personal fun fact: The tree above is the exact little tree @nicksavoia and I have tattooed on us. ❤️
Let love grow. - Succulents are my favorite favors!🌿✨
Going through images to choose for my website and this one will certainly be making an appearance. I love being able to relive each wedding from last year as I peek through all of my sweet couples galleries! ✨
“There is my heart, and then there is you, and I’m not sure there is a difference.” ✨🌿
*Patiently waiting for my 2018 wedding season to start.* 😅
I miss Summer, in the worst way, which means it’s time to start planning camping trips and fun adventures! 🏕⛰🍳☕️🌲✨ - Friends, I’ll gladly take recommendations! What are your favorite summer activities or places I should see?! - @driftinggypsies, this quote reminds me of you free spirits! ✨
I can’t wait for happy joyful seniors to be in front of my camera this summer! 😍 Class of 2019, it’s your turn to start thinking about scheduling your session. ✨
My favorite part about being a photographer is connecting with people and creating lifelong friendships especially with fellow photographers! Being able to openly share and teach everything that I can makes my heart so full! I was going to wait until I launched my website to announce that I officially will be offering in person and online mentoring but honestly, there's no better time than the present! I will only be offering a limited number of mentoring sessions this year to truly serve each person in the best way possible. Whether you just bought your first DSLR camera or you are looking to take your business to the next step, I'd love to be there to help! - I am so excited to be offering these and I can't wait to see who I meet along the way! If you have any questions, please feel free to message me! ✨
Pro Tip: For genuine laughter from your brides and grooms, have your second shooter stand off to the side and say something funny! Works like a freaking charm. 😉✨
I don’t have a caption for this and honestly, I don’t really wanna think of one. I just love ring shots. ✨🌿
- 'Cause I could search the world from South to North But I've already found what I'm looking for. ❤️🌲 - Thank you for all these new memories, I’m so grateful to be living life out here with you.
I just needed some pretty flowers in my feed. I can’t wait for spring to arrive. 😍💗🌿✨
Always focus on love. 😏🌿✨ - These two are going to be pretty damn popular on my new website and I’m so excited about it. - BTS 📷 by @diliacohen
I’ve been such a perfectionist when it comes to my new website that it will be a miracle if I launch it within the next month. 🤷🏼♀️ - Sticker from @driftinggypsies, better get yourself one. 🌿✨
I never share groom details and idk why because they’re some of my favorites!
I started my day off with a 2.5 FaceTime date with this pretty lady! It was exactly what I needed and it left me feeling inspired and ready to tackle the day. Seriously, I was so inspired that I'm actually going to become someones Virtual Assistant and I can't freaking wait, I'm sure you'll all hear more about that very soon! Annnnnyway, being in long distance friendships is so hard that sometimes you have to make intentional time to see one another and I'm beyond thankful this morning happened to work out for the two of us. Han, thank you for everything! I'm so grateful to have you in my life. ✨
- “They say love is more precious than gold It can't be bought, and it can't be sold I got love, love to spare That made me a millionaire” - Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! ✨ I hope your day is full of love, Reese hearts, and beautiful flowers if that’s your thing! Celebrating love is one of my favorite things. 💗
Let’s wander where the WiFi is weak. 🏕 - I am so ready for warmer weather so I can spend my days exploring and nights sleeping in a tent. ✨ For all of you adventurous babes, use the code JESSICA15 for 15% off of your order at @driftinggypsies! Everything in their store is easily my favorite and I’m so thankful I get to rep such a badass brand. 🏔
Spending my morning creating this little beauties graduation invitation!! I have no idea where the time has gone for all of you 2018 seniors, just a few more months and you’ll be graduating! ✨ #jessicahustedseniors
Since I’ve been out here it’s hardly snowed in Great Falls so the past few days I’ve been the happiest looking out of my window and seeing this beautiful powder. Callie is pretty happy with it too!✨❄️ #calliethesamoyed
