The best discovery of my Friday night was finding out there's still a movie theater out there screening Beauty & the Beast! I know I'm just a LITTLE LATE to THAT party, but between building a posing course in the middle of our wedding season AND moving, this is seriously the first time we've had time for an actual date night since it came out!! Aka I've been wanting to see this movie since March!! 🙌🏻 So yep. This is my idea of a WILD Friday night 👌🏻 - 📷 by @annamarie_akins, my real life Belle :)
That feeling when you get to do the thing you love the most. In yoga pants 🙌🏻 So honored to get to teach THOUSANDS of photographers online tonight! If you saw my Insta Story, you already know why I think teaching from home is the best! But seriously, even though we don't teach in a physical classroom anymore (like we did in our days of working as Mr. and Mrs. Demos in the 4th & 5th grade) teaching is STILL the thing that just lights my HEART on FIRE! There's really NO better feeling in the WORLD than being a part of other people's ah-ha moments and helping photographers get after their dreams.
I love imagining our sweet couple's future kids walking past images like this in frames in their home. That their kids would get to grow up seeing a beautiful visual representation of the love they came from :) But here's the reality: if our couples don't love the way they look in the picture, it's not going in the frame, right?! That's why we're SO excited to be teaching a brand new free online training LIVE THIS WEEK called 5 POSING SECRETS to Flatter Every Body! We're going to spill five of our favorite tricks to make sure every body looks their very best regardless of shape, size, age or comfortability in the front of the camera, so that our clients LOVE the way they look and are EXCITED to share their photos and hang them up in their home! The best news?! You can join us for FREE!! I know a lot of you have already snagged your seat (the link to sign up is in my profile!) and we can't wait to have you there live! Let me know in the comments if you're going to join us! We're going to have a really special offer for everyone who joins us, plus we're going to be doing a live Q &A! We'd love to answer YOUR question! So click the link in my profile, mark your calendars for THIS Wednesday, May 17 at 6pm PST/ 9 EST and we'll see you there! 🙌🏻 Sweatpants optional :)
She was our very first blog reader. Our first subscriber to the email list. She's the woman who left me a three minute voicemail this week just to tell me all the things she loves about the new course we're building. Because she read all the emails. She can tell it's going to help so many people and if she was a photographer she'd be so excited. She almost signed up herself, she said, after the beep. She's unconditional love personified. She taught me compassion and faith and joy. I'm so thankful for my constant encourager, biggest cheerleader, and wisest counselor. Mom, you are the greatest gift. I love you so much.
It's gotta be that can't-eat, can't-sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence, World Series kind of love. (PS Is there an age where it becomes socially unacceptable to quote It Takes Two? Asking for a friend.)
