There’s a lot that’s happened in the past nine years while pursuing this business of mine. My entrepreneurial journey started in high-school, continued through college, and when I graduated I kept a part-time job for a few months before finally taking my business full-time. There was no plan for leaving my part-time job. That job […]

Today I’m celebrating three years as a full-time business owner. I will never forget the day that I FINALLY dropped off my application in the mail to make my biz official. Or the day that I officially opened up my business bank account. Or the day that I turned in my two-week notice and pursued […]

Collaborating with other entrepreneurs is one of the best things you can do. It builds your network, your relationships with each other, gives you […]

            Working from home is my bread and butter. Being an full-time entrepreneur for the past three years, I’ve become pretty used to it. If you’re not used to it though, it can feel pretty weird at first. Here are a few tips to stay productive and enjoy it more!             Create a Routine & […]

         I’ll be honest, when I realized that we’d be staying at home more often for a few weeks, I got really excited and immediately bought two new books (Atomic Habits & Storybrand). If I’m going to have more time on my hands, you bet I’ll be reading more. Might as well learn something and […]

Some of my favorite images from a boudoir session in Indianapolis. We had so much fun together!

Ohmygoodness HOW DO I CHOOSE!! Kevin & Paola invited us to photograph their destination wedding in Alberta & it was absolutely gorgeous. One of my favorite memories, hands down.

I absolutely LOVED working with Maddy Corbin last month for a fun Valentines Day session. We met downtown Indy at one of Harper Development‘s airbnb’s, equipped with Roses and all the cute outfits.

Pricing tiers are my new favorite thing. About a month ago, I began playing around with ideas of how I could create more tiers in my pricing structure; I wanted to experiment with the idea to see if it would bring in more clients. Low and behold, it worked! If you’re not already, I want […]

If you know me, you know I’m always reading a book. And this year there have been some real good ones. With only four days left of the decade (wait, what?!), I thought it would be fitting to do a blog post about the best books I read this year. To Hell with the Hustle […]

Admitting my big goals for 2020 out loud & feeling real excited about it! What are your goals for next year? I’d love to know!

At the beginning of this year, I could feel change coming. Big changes. And I knew that my business was going to hit a point somewhere along the way of 2019, where it would become bigger than I ever expected. And so I began praying, “God, what do I need to have in place now […]

I got to photograph the absolute cutest boudoir session and I could not wait to share it with you guys!! We photographed the session in Indianapolis, complete with cozy sweaters & hot chocolate!

I rented Canon’s new EOS R mirrorless camera from LensRentals, as well as the new Canon RF 50mm 1.2, and here are my honest thoughts.

You have to understand that no one is born naturally confident. Confidence is a skill that is mastered through the years and it very much depends on the kind of mindset we choose to use. There are two types of mindsets: a fixed mindset & a growth mindset. A fixed mindset is the belief that […]

You guys know I love Instagram. It has been such an incredible tool for connecting with you all!
