What if you were replaced by someone else with the same skill set? At your job, or in your business...even at home. What if someone else- who had the exact same knowledge, skills and talent as you- were to take your place. After a few months, what would people say they missed about you the most? What would your photography clients say? Your social media followers? Your workshop attendees? What would your loyal patrons or your readers say? What about the customer on the other end of the phone? What would your children & family say they missed the most? 👉🏻 How you do what you do, the way that you do it, and who you authentically are to the people around you...matters. Even if YOU think it’s so small or insignificant. We spend an awful amount of time chasing after the expectations of who others think we should be- that we sadly often overlook & undervalue what we already bring to the table. Our own unique gifts. A unique voice. A unique view. A unique presence. And it’s the VERY thing everybody else sees & greatly values...except for you!! Instead of simply asking “What makes me stand out at my job?” or “What makes my business different?” or “Am I a good enough Mom?”...Think about what wouldn’t show up if YOU didn’t...that right there my friend..is absolute treasure. ✨
Loved meeting this mama in Connecticut this weekend, and I already can’t wait for their at home newborn session this winter! Sending the black & white film to the lab in the morning- always so exciting!
Looking forward to a maternity session 🤰🏻this afternoon, and then it’s back to Pittsburgh late tonight! 🚘
Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃🍂🍁 What an incredible year it has been- so overwhelmed with the blessings God has given me! ✨
Hey! If you see any fantastic Black Friday deals for photographers (including your own) whether it’s website templates, packaging supplies, gear accessories, subscription savings, presets, you name it- will you do me a huge favor? Will you DM me or comment here? I want to share with my photographer followers here and @thefountcollective the best Black Friday deals. Because there’s nothing worse than finding out you could have saved a gazillion dollars on the thing you’ve been wanting had you just thought to look on Black Friday. Am I right? 🙋🏻♀️ If you’re a business offering something for photographers you are WELCOME to share on this post. Send me a graphic on DM and I’ll share the best ones this week!
What if branding could mean more to you in your photography business than just needing to have the (*really*) expensive silk ribbon? What if it wasn't even about the business card you choose or the website template? And what if it wasn't ever about lining your grid up to hers to see how you measure up? Having a website and all the branding details aren't insignificant- not by any means. But they aren't what drives your business. ✨*YOU are.*✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When you find a focus in your brand, it becomes the very rudder to your ship, and the filter by which every decision is made. Having a focus in your brand means that HER success doesn't take ANYTHING away from YOURS- because it's no longer about the comparison. Your business and your brand doesn't have to look like anyone else's. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are you ending the year with a list of things you were SO excited to make happen...and then never did? Did you quickly lose excitement about a launch because you doubted yourself shortly after? Are you sitting on the dream of ACTUALLY going full time or less time or WHATEVER that desire may be? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Doors to my Finding Your Focus Online Course are closing tomorrow and I REALLY want to see you in there this coming year. I am gearing up to lead this community in deep goal setting and year planning as we close this year and hit the ground running come January. I want 2019 to be the BEST year you have EVER had as a business owner....And it all starts with finding your focus. Get all the details at the link in my profile!

Doors opened yesterday and there’s still time to get in for Finding Your Focus 2019!!! This is an online course experience for photographers that I’ve created to clearly define your brand, your clients (who your brand is speaking to) your website, your marketing, your sales, your systems & workflow- and your mindset. It all starts the first week of December as we kick it off with live group goal setting, and starting the year by planning our strategies to make all of those goals happen!! 7 core modules, new bonus content, and 12 monthly Focus Sessions. The 1-1 coaching was a big hit and almost everyone has added it to their experience as well! Doors are still open but not for long, and this is the only chance to get in for all of 2019. I can’t wait to get started! More details can be found at the link in my bio! 🙌🏻
One year ago (the fastest year) I hopped on a flight from dreamy Coastal Maine to Pittsburgh to get a first hand visual. I had decided to move there having only been to the area just twice in years past. It felt entirely crazy and overwhelmingly right at the same time. I had made the official decision to move there just two weeks before this trip. And I found myself (so gratefully) driving behind my brother who was towing the seriously overpacked trailer of everything I owned just two months to follow. (I mean, thank God for brothers with big trucks who say yes) I didn’t know what business would look like when I got here, or if I would connect with clients in the same way. Everything seemed like an unknown. Except one thing. I was putting my priorities on the anointing. I was leaving everything that felt like home for something greater. I moved for a church. And it completely changed my life. This was my best year in business EVER. In ways I never dreamed possible. AND I work for one of the greatest ministries on earth. Doing work I’m passionate about in SO many areas. What a year it’s been!!! I am so thankful that God opens the biggest doors and makes me brave enough to walk through them. 2019 is going to be out of this freaking world. 🤯🤩🙌🏻
The Finding Your Focus Course is an online learning experience for photographers who are ready to DEFINE & KNOW what their brand is and what it stands for, WHO their clients are, and HOW they will reach those clients. It’s for the photographer who felt utterly frazzled this past year because yet again, there just weren’t any systems- so you were working harder, not smarter. It’s for the photographer who is tired of making every decision in their business based on what everyone else seems to be doing. It’s for the photographer who dreams of doing huge things- but just doesn’t know how to make her plan of action. Doors are open and this is your only chance to get in for 2019. The course begins the first week of December and we are kicking it off with an interactive goal setting Focus Session as we talk about what worked in our businesses this past year and what didn’t, so that come January- you already know what to accomplish first. I’m not inviting you into another course round or just another class for the new year- I’m inviting you to be a part of a team. All the details are available at the link in my profile (👉🏻 select Finding Your Focus Online Course from the menu). You will see that you can even add personal 1-1 coaching to your course experience!! 🙌🏻 Best part of the announcement?! Use the code “EARLYBIRDFOCUS” for $75 off any package. Good for TODAY ONLY. So if you’ve been on the edge of your seat waiting for this course to open for 2019 this is your chance! It’s going to be the best experience yet. I can’t wait to see you inside!
