When Taylor first contacted me about her shoot. I quickly realized that what we were planning would allow me to explore another avenue of branding that hadn't quite been tapped yet. 🤔 You see, she's not a business owner. And she doesn't plan on becoming one in the near future. She is a recent college grad (CONGRATS!) and needed some photos to add to her portfolio for potential employers. 💼 Branding isn't one size fits all. It's all about you and what you bring to the table. You could be a model/actress or someone looking for the perfect career and need photos for a portfolio. You could be a business owner and need photos to represent the thing you sell or the people you serve. Or you could be a bachelor/bachelorette looking for some updated lifestyle photos to show off on your favorite dating app! 📲 First impressions are everything - let me help you make a great one! 🙋🏼♀️ 🥘: @navarinorestaurant
ITS SHOOT DAY!! 📸 @taylorpickens and I are taking over Huntington a little bit later to work images for her portfolio! 📁 It’s so dang cold outside it’s hysterical that we are still shooting BUT we will get this done and it will be the most epic 9° shoot EVER. #countonit 👌🏻 Follow along on Instagram stories to check out all the fun we’ll be having!
I guess the cats outta the bag! 🐈 A few months ago, I shared with a group of people, a business idea I had. It was a little crazy (hello, it’s me) and I kinda dig it. 👋🏻 It’s no where near ready to launch but I have the plan in my head and I’ll I need to do is pull the trigger. But I wanted to do something even crazier... who knew? 🤷🏼♀️ I want to share my journey to launch with you as it happens —> follow @nectar_charleston to watch my dream come true... no matter how long it takes! 🚀 thanks to @rockpapersis for this temporary (maybe permanent) but totally rad logo!
Meeting up with my personal trainer @angfitco to talk Branding and plan her shoot to take her lifestyle + fitness biz to the next level! 💪🏻 Also, we’re planning on drinking all of @coalrivercoffeecompany ‘s house roast while there! ☕️ Anyone else having an afternoon coffee break on this chilly Friday afternoon?! #business #coffeebreak #coffeeshoptabletop #lifestylebrand #friyay #fitnessbrand #brandphotographer #butfirstcoffee
Do you ever feel like you're living a dream you don't deserve? 🙇🏼♀️ These days, I'm either crying into a bucket of popcorn convincing myself that I'm never going to be good enough or I'm pinching myself, wondering if the good things are actually happening to me. 🦄 Either way you spin it, I forget to be thankful. I forget to live with gratitude for whatever comes my way. But today, I'm choosing to be thankful for the good and the disappointing. 🙏🏻 But let's be real here, we're always more grateful for the good so let me, let you in on a good secret I'm celebrating today: I was notified that I am a finalist in a local contest for entrepreneurs called THRIVE. They basically give the winner of the best business idea, crowdfunded money to start and build the business of their dreams! 🏆 So next week, I'll be presenting my grand vision of a three-part hospitality brand to a panel of judges and a crowd of our closed friends and family. I could focus on the what if I lose, or what if everyone looks at me like I'm crazy? 👀 Instead, I'm thankful that I even made it as a finalist. I'm thankful that I'll get my idea some exposure. I'm thankful I can even dream these BIG dreams. ✨ Friends, I can't wait to share more with you! But today, let's be thankful for where we are -- because it sure is FAR from where we've been. ✈️ Are you celebrating anything today? Are you thankful for your season? Will you lay down your negative thoughts and disappointment and be thankful with me today?? 👌🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #thrive #thrivewv #universityofcharleston #wv #entrepreneur #serialentrepreneur #buildingmyempire #brandphotographer #coffeepreneur #celebrate #attituteofgratitude #thankful #blessedlife #fromwhereistand #livingmydream #sheboss #mamapreneur #momboss #girlboss #bossbabeswv #business

Can I get an amen?? 🙌🏻 Here's to all the work at home parents out there, that have their littles at home for the day. 🥂 May the odds be ever in your favor. ✊🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #mompreneur #entrepreneurlife #serialentrepreneur #buildingmyempire #whateverittakes #ittakesavillage #details #workworkwork #mombosslife #girlboss #workathomemom #glitterguide #photographer #lifestylephotography #brandphotographer #realtalk #ohheymama
Fun Fact: I have fantasized about taking my babies to work with me since the day they were born. ✨ Most people like to use work as an escape from their littles and believe me, I understand that COMPLETELY. 👋🏻 Hello, my name is Meg and I’m a horrible stay at home mom. Just sayin’. 👀 But to be able to build the business of my dreams and have the opportunity to share my passion turned success with my babies [and the hubs] is e v e r y t h i n g. 🦄 And my youngest has the creative entrepreneur wardrobe down to a science! Girl can rock some kitty cat loafers like no one I know! 🐈
I was sick yesterday and wasn’t able to have any coffee. ⁉️ I know, right. It was awful. I got the usual terrible headache on top of the plague. It couldn’t have been a worse scenario. ☝🏻 But then, this morning came and I was feeling better and I ran straight for the bean. 🤔 I think I could possibly have a problem. But I think it’s a problem I can deal with. I love it and it loves me. I’m just sayin’. ☕️ What do you hate giving up most when you’re sick?! Or what do you love most when you’re sick? ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #happytuesday #butfirstcoffee #coffeelove #irunoncoffee #coffeeathome #coffeepreneur #icant #onthemend #cantstopwontstop #bossgirls #girlbossmindset #whatmakesmefeelbetter #whatmakesmehappy #mamapreneur #ohheymama
