Current mood. In theory you should come back from a trip away feeling rejuvenated and ready to go but I always have the hardest time getting back to reality. There should be some sort of rule that says that you get one day where no one can ask you to do anything after coming home. Anyone else with me?! 👏 If anyone needs me I’ll be watching the Bachelor and trying to hide from responsibilities 🙈
There is just something so incredible about being able to connect with other humans who share your same struggles and passions. Being in a space with so many mostly women , mostly mom, photographers for a weekend was incredible. We were each other’s tribe. We related and connected on so many levels. Which, for many of us those connections are rare since we often work from home alone with our kids. I had non-stop adult conversations guys! 😱 And not one time did I feel anxious or alone. Nothing but love, support and laughter. I still need to process and digest the amazingness that was @clickawayconference but all I can say is I found the utmost joy this weekend and made the best memories and friends. My heart is full. This image wasn’t taken at Click Away. I’m still uploading those but it is an image of another absolutely incredible local mom photographer who I adore! @tarahphotography . Connecting with amazing souls will always be the best part of this career!
Road tripping down to Southern California alone for the first time today. That means 7 hours of me belting out musicals without a tiny person telling me I can only sing the boy parts. 🎤🎶 Getting my playlist ready now. Who wants me to live the whole thing? 😂 Excited for a few days with a beach view and making new friends, even though it’s tough to leave the kiddos. I might have cried a little dropping the big one off this morning. 😭🏝 #clickaway2019 #danapointhereicome
Knee deep in packing, prop-making and prepping for my class which I leave for tomorrow and I realized that I need to take my son’s Valentine’s Day pictures and order his cards today for him to get them in time. Seriously, how is it already almost Valentine’s Day?! ❤️ Looks like this mama is gonna need a 5th, 6th and 7th cup of coffee ☕️
Oh hey Monday! I see you, but I’m not ready for you yet. Try again tomorrow. Thanks. Tee: @bc_california
What are you more excited about: 🏈 🍕🎤? #superbowl2019 How perfect is this shirt by @bc_california for today?! Love the new launch of tees and super excited some adult versions are coming soon 👏
Every year I don’t think I will do mini sessions again. The burn out and exhaustion is real guys. But then I look back and see all the beautiful families I get to work with and the images we created and I just can’t not. I blogged all of my favorites from fall beach minis yesterday and as I was doing it my heart was all melted over these amazing humans I get to work with and I realized I should just stop even pretending I’ll ever not do them. #bringonthechaos
🎶I don't need a parachute, baby, if I've got you Baby, if I've got you, I don't need a parachute You're gonna catch me, you're gonna catch if I fall🎶 Any other Ingrid Michaelson fans in the house?!
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about mentoring lately by those who sadly can’t attend my @clickawayconference class (if you can you should because it’s going to be awesome!). I am putting together some mentoring options that I’m excited launch soon. That said, there are certain things I don’t feel like I’m the best person to speak about, such as finances. If you’re struggling in this area I HIGHLY recommend the #youareabusinesswoman finance course that @cristin_more and @katierainphoto just launched. I have a link in my profile for easy access if you’re interested. It’s way more in depth than anything I could speak to since Cristin has a finance background. Running a business is tough and that side of this career can feel a bit overwhelming for those of us who just want to be creative and hide from the rest. Although I do love me a good spreadsheet. I find them super motivating. 💪 Pic of one of my favorite #mombosses @lisafurtadointeriors ❤️
